• Holden / Cain continue good form in Sidecar session

Dean Harrison set the 2018 Isle of Man TT Races, fuelled by Monster Energy, alight on Tuesday evening with a stunning lap of 133.462mph, which unofficially broke the Superbike lap record and also saw him become the second rider to lap the Mountain Course in less than 17 minutes.

The Silicone Engineering Kawasaki rider laid down a marker from the outset with an opening lap of 133.140mph, the fastest ever standing start lap – albeit unofficially – before increasing his pace second time around. The Bradford rider’s quickest lap prior to tonight was 132.019mph, set in last year’s PokerStars Senior TT race.

Not to be outdone by the solos, the Formula Two Sidecars were also setting a formidable pace and John Holden/Lee Cain scorched round on their opening lap at 115.732mph, which was only three seconds outside their personal best. The Birchalls were second quickest at 114.875mph with Alan Founds/Jake Lowther (112.602) slotting into third ahead of Dave Molyneux/Dan Sayle (111.122).

Mike Breitenbach would like me to remind everybody that he WILL be across at the TT - and remind me at the same time to update his details on the link on the right which I haven't done yet. 
Mike I will get that done this week! 

I also have to put on a load of reports including the World Championship from Le Mans - I just do not have the time like I used to for keeping everything up to date instantly. 

Hope you're all well!

Portsmouth’s Quattro Plant JG Speedfit Kawasaki sidecar team made the 460 mile round trip to Oulton Park in Cheshire for round two of the British Sidecar Championship. Since the first round at Brands Hatch three weeks ago driver Ricky Stevens from Portsmouth and Dover based passenger Ryan Charlwood have had a busy couple of weeks having raced at the first round of the World sidecar Championship at the iconic Le Mans circuit in France, where they had a superb fifth place finish on a circuit they had never raced at before.

Gary Horspole with passenger Jimmy Connell rode to a strong sixth place (fourth in his class) in round two of the Hyundai Construction Equipment British F1 Sidecar championship on Monday.

The Sleaford rider along with his Scottish passenger was consistent throughout free practice and qualifying and began the race from a third row grid position. The pair got away to a good start on the LCR Kawasaki outfit and were fifth on the first lap but were pushed back a place to sixth on lap two and remained in that position to lap nine when the race was red flagged.

Mallory Park produces a scorcher in more ways than one

Bank Holiday weekend 6th/7th May saw the third round of the A.C.U./F.S.R. A British Formula 2 sidecar championship at Mallory Park with E.M.R.A the host club in polar opposite weather conditions to the previous weekend at Cadwell Park. With the forecast to be the hottest Early May Bank Holiday on record it would be very tiring for all competitors in the searing heat and two x twenty lap races scheduled.

Plans are well advanced for the Revival, and we invite anyone with an interesting period sidecar outfit wishing to parade it in the event, to get in touch with us.

We want a nostalgic and interesting flavour, and expect to see a complete variety of sidecar outfits spanning four decades, as well as a good selection of two-stroke Grand Prix solos from the seventies and early eighties.

Slovakiaring Welcomes World Sidecars


It seems like only yesterday since the “FIM World Sidecar Championship” teams kicked off their 2018 season in Le-Mans, but that is all in the past. The teams are heading to a new circuit to them. The 5.922km “Slovakia Ring” will welcome the sidecar teams. Opened in 2009, the fast, mainly right hand corner circuit is a short 35km from the capital Bratislava. As like in Le-Mans the sidecars will be supporting the “FIM, Endurance World Championship”.

Glorious weather blessed the paddock for the entire weekend in Cheshire.


Due to clashes with the FIM World Championship, and a British F2 round at Mallory Park, the grid was significantly lower than normal. Notable non-starters were Ben and Tom Birchall and John Holden Lee Cain as they headed for the Slovakiaring.
Brands Hatch winners Peter Founds/Jevan Walmesly opted to defend their F2 title, so were another high-profile crew missing from the line-up.
Those crews who did make the journey for the one and only race, were rewarded with great racing and a chunky share of the available points.

Free practice was a good indicator of how things might pan out with the big bikes versus the 600's. One or two 600 crews were trying out the short chassis version ahead of the Isle of Man TT.
