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

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.

Always with an eye to the future, Roger Body and his RKB-F1 organisational team are working hard to ensure that Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship continues to evolve and grow.
The thinking has always been to have the FIM World Championship, and the leading National Championships, of which the British is without doubt the strongest, to be aligned with similar, if not identical rules and operational format.

The culmination of the 2017 season was every bit as exciting as it might have been. A record entry of almost forty outfits, subject to one or two late cancellations, would guarantee a packed grid for both races, with world class former champions mixing it with young hopefuls and established championship regulars.

 

Tim and Tristan Reeves came to Brands seeking an unblemished clean sweep of all twenty races over the season, whilst newly crowned world champions Ben and Tom Birchall were within touching distance of the British 600cc Cup Crown, to add their FIM Gold Medal.

World Champions spice up Assen action, as Stevens/Charlwood crash out

No fewer than thirty-four crews entered for the penultimate round in Holland, headed by three former, and one current pair of World Champions.
It was no surprise therefore, that qualifying was dominated by three of those aforementioned, with newly crowned Tim and Tristan Reeves leading the way on the Carl Cox Motorsport Kawasaki.

Reigning World Champion Sidecar racers Ben and Tom Birchall travelled to Assen in the Netherlands for the penultimate round of the British 600cc Cup that takes place within the British F1 Sidecar Championship. The Mansfield brothers recorded a double win at Assen in their class and remain in second place in the cup but with double points on offer in the final two races at Brands Hatch there is a slim chance they could win the title.

The weather played its part in qualifying and both races at Assen but the Mitchells of Mansfield supported team took it all in their stride to qualify in third place overall in the dry and went on to contest the first race on a very wet and slippery circuit on Saturday.

Where has 2017 gone you might ask, as the tenth and final round of the series heads back to Brands Hatch next weekend 13-15 October, where it all began seven months ago.

In that time, we have witnessed a new level of dominance by Tim and Tristan Reeves in the major capacity class, the determined return of the popular Scots Steve Kershaw and Stuart Clarke, the change in fortunes of the former double champions Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood, and the emergence of new talent in the 600cc Cup class.

One thing is for sure, the racing has been good and not without incident, with the 600's adding extra spice.

Sleaford F1 Sidecar Driver with Scottish passenger Jimmy Connell travelled to Assen in the Netherlands for the penultimate round of the British F1 Sidecar Championship on Sunday resulting an eighth place finish and eight championship points for the duo.

The weather affected the racing on Saturday and after qualifying well on the sixth row for the first race on Saturday Gary decided not to race as, with standing water in places on the track, he deemed the conditions too dangerous.
