The directors of the Welsh Road Race regretfully announce the postponement of the 2018 Welsh Road Race. This is due to recent changes in legislation on the Road Traffic Act in Wales. A date for the 2019 event has already been requested and will be announced shortly.

On the 9th of January this year, there was a hearing with regard to the repeal of the Road Traffic Act. The repeal was to allow the use of closed Public Roads for Motorsport events. This repeal came into effect yesterday, on the 2nd February.

The traditional RKB-F1 awards presentation evening took place at the Bentley Hotel, South Hykeham, near Lincoln last Saturday evening, and a packed function room celebrated the efforts of the 2017 season contestants.
As reported throughout the year, there was plenty of drama in what had truly been a stellar year for many of the crews.
Highlights of this action were captured in a short video and music piece, shown immediately prior to the presentation itself.

We are delighted to anounce additional support for the Club Sidecar class at Bemsee.

Familiar to many in the sidecar paddock - Michael Breitenbach is to support both F1 and F2 with spot prizes worth £100 split between each F1 & F2 overall winner at each round in 2018 - through Breitenbach-Rennsport who have the exclusive rights for Pagid BrakePads Worldwide for Karts, Sidecars and Motorcycles

This support is in addition to the ongoing package from RKB Motorsport that continues to enable all entry fees to be lower than they would normally be in the sidecar class through a subsidy. This alone has a value of upto £10k

Bemsee thanks Breitenbach-Rennsport and RKB Motorsport for their continued help into 2018.

ttpressrelease

Rising stars Lewis Blackstock and Patrick Rosney will be firmly aiming for a podium position in the two Sidecar Races at the 2018 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy, with the Blackburn duo lining up as team-mates to John Holden and Lee Cain in the Silicone Engineering Team.

Blackstock, 26, and Rosney, 23, will be part of an expanded Silicone Engineering set-up in June with the pairing set to pilot Holden’s TT-winning LCR Honda, a switch from the Suzuki power unit they used in 2017.

Greetings all,


Here's the Registration Form for next season's British Sidecar Championship at BSB 

NOTE: This is not the Series Entry Form - all of you who Register by the end of January will then get sent that in February.


The Technical Regulations should follow within the next 10 days.

The key change all 600 riders should be aware of is that in 2018 you will score points for the Main Championship for the first time as well as for the 600 Cup in each race.


Those of you who wish to renew your ACU Licences - once you return the Registration - we will issue by email your ACU unique codes so you can do that online at the ACU site or by adding the code to the back of your 2018 ACU Licence Form.

Happy for you to print, fill-in, scan and email back to me - or post back.

Happy Christmas all and have a Great New Year.

On behalf of RKB Motorsport:
Mike Dommett
CEO - The British Motorcycle Racing Club
Office: 01708 720305
Mob: 07970 963572

 

 

Open Day at Brands is Cancelled With great regret, we are forced to cancel our Open Day today at Brands Hatch. For most the snow overnight just makes journeys on a quiet Sunday a little too risky. Our apologies for the inconvenience but we think this is the right call in the interests of eveyone's safety

Tracey Ringrow, Race Secretary & Mike Dommett, CEO Bemsee Office

Team Birchall travelled to Andorra last Sunday to attend the 2017 FIM Awards ceremony. The Mitchells of Mansfield supported riders joined the other FIM World Champions at the event held at the Andorra Park Hotel in the Pyrenean Principality.


The Birchalls, along with team-members James Brindley and Tom Mitchell, rubbed shoulders with 35 fellow FIM World Champions and members from the FIM Team World Championships. Swapping their leathers for dinner jackets, the boys enjoyed an evening to remember relaxing and sharing stories with motorcycling royalty such as Marc Marquez, Toni Cairoli and Jonathan Rea.

Ten Rounds, a brand-new Sidecar Revival event and increased opportunities for 600's in 2018.

 

At a meeting last week, the organisational team headed by Roger Body arrived at the final framework for the championship going into the 2018 season.   

A ten round championship is planned, nine of which will again be alongside the British Superbike Championship, with a tenth round to be stand-alone at the famous Cadwell Park circuit over the weekend of 23/24th June.

 

This event will be known as “The Sidecar Revival” with a full programme featuring Sidecar Grand Prix Legends, sidecar classics, F2 outfits and a line-up of interesting solos.

The chance to see the likes of Steve Webster, Steve Abbott, Rolf Biland and Alain Michel back on track will indeed be one to relish.

The event will contain three Hyundai Heavy Industries Championship races.
