GLENN WALSH HAS ASKED ME TO BUMP THIS UP - THE ORGANISERS WILL NEED TO KNOW NUMBERS VERY SOON, DON'T LEAVE IT TIL LAST MINUTE PLEASE!!

Please note! The evening is open not just to teams and their families, but anyone who wishes to have a fun evening in the company of some of the best sidecar racers in the UK - so please do read!

Now the hectic season has come to an end, it is time to think ahead and plan. The RKB-F1 Motorsport team is deeply involved in the season ahead. There is much to do with various negotiations on the sponsorship front, BSB teams are sniffing to be involved, and even one or two celebrity solo riders have expressed interest in piloting an F1 outfit. Clearly, the up-coming year is going to be a season to remember for many reasons. Not least of all the attendance of all the top teams from the UK on some very interesting machinery.

YOU can rub shoulders with the great and good (and the not so good) by joining us at the awards evening for the 2015 championship. We will be recognising a terrific year by a worthy pair of young champions, and many other stellar performances.

Race One - With the title already wrapped up, the traditional Brands Hatch season closer took place under leaden skies on Saturday, with double points on hand for all crews, and especially those fighting over the other top places in the table. Added spice took the form of three wild-cards running 600cc outfits, and two crews from mainland Europe.

The Assured Office Solutions/Be Wiser Kawasaki F1 Sidecar team of Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood will arrive in Kent knowing that the weekend's two races can be contested with zero pressure. A dominant season which saw them lift eleven victories has given them the 2015 title ahead of the final round. It has been a thoroughly fascinating season with many twists and turns along the way for many of the teams.
