After what seems an eternity, the long winter break is finally over and battle will commence for the 2016 British Sidecar Championship next bank holiday weekend at Oulton Park. A record number of entries have registered for the series, including two former World Champions. Whilst their swords might cross on the track, Tim Reeves and Ben Birchall are actually racing in different classes, as Ben and Tom Birchall have elected to run a 600cc Honda in the "new for 2016" 600 Cup class, just as they are in the world series.

I am posting this to see who might possibly be interested in riding with me in the 2016 BSB/RKB-F1 Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship?

Unfortunately, my recent Co-Riders, the brilliant Ken Edwards is still broken from his 'non racing' related injury, and the Equally brilliant Evo has other goals he wants to achieve this year. And I am a bit of a fussy ****, so I am just asking that if any body interested, they look at points below :)

Portsmouth based Jed Pilmoor-Brady finds himself catapulted into the limelight for 2016, as passenger for World and British Superbike star Chris Walker in his rookie sidecar season. Jed, at just twenty-one years of age, already has earned his stripes in the F1 sidecar paddock with a solid season last year assisting Ian Drowne to eleventh place in the final standings for Mick Robson Racing, and previously with Simon Gilbert and his G-Force racing team. This latest development is without doubt another significant milestone in his young career.

There are not many boxes left to tick in the illustrious career of British and World Superbike star Chris Walker, but he has found one.

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.
