It is with regret I have to say my brother Tony Body passed away on Wednesday 2nd December.

For those of you who knew him, he was a great sidecar rider in the late 70's/80's when he rode in the British Marlboro Clubmans series and at many national races,he was also the one that got me in the sport !!!!!For many years now he has struggled with Type 1 diabetes, which left him confined to a bed.

For anybody wishing to attend, his funeral will be held at Eltham Crematorium on Monday 21st December at 1pm (SE9 2NL).

Flowers are most welcome C/O Doves, 35 Station Road, Swanley, BR8 8ES. (01322 669000)

After the ceremony there will be a gathering of friends at Meopham Country Club (DA13 0AT) to remember a few stories.

The 10th and final round of the Hyundai Heavy Industries British F1 Sidecar Championship in association with the Molson Group was held on the 16 – 18th October at the famous Brands Hatch GP Circuit. The GP circuit was a familiar circuit to MkRacing's Martin Kirk and Ben Hughes, after one of their strongest result there earlier in the season, the team where hoping for another good result to cement their place in the top 15 of the championship. With double points available at this round and with the team sitting in 13th, it was all to play for.

Slow Phil's head shave for charity took pace last weekend at the Cadwell Park Sidecar Bonanza. 

From all the accounts I've heard and looking at the state of the old boy now it seems to have been a great success (loving the combover Phil), but of course we're going to give it one last push for a little bit more of your hard earned cash - all for good causes! The buckets that were passed around at the weekend have raised far more than the total on the page linked below, Phil will fill us in on the full total very soon..
