    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.

    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.

    Known as the“Cathedral of Speed”, the famous Assen circuit in Holland is the destination for round nine of The Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship over the weekend of 29th September - 1st October.

    The event welcomes two pairs of newly crowned champion brothers, in Tim and Tristan Reeves (Carl Cox Motorsport Kawsaki), who clinched the British title at the previous round at Cadwell, and Ben and Tom Birchall, 2017 FIM World Champions, after dominating that series on their Mitchells of Manfield 600cc Yamaha.
    There will no lifting of the pedal however, as both crews are still on a mission with unfinished business.
    The Reeves brothers intend to go the entire season with an unblemished record of wins, whilst the Birchalls have their eyes on the 600cc British Cup title to add to their FIM Gold medal.

    Sleaford sidecar driver Gary Horspole with Scottish passenger Jimmy Connell were at Brands Hatch at the weekend to contest the two races in round six of the British F1 Sidecar championship where they recorded an eighth and 10th place to their races which move them up to sixth in the rider standings on 80 points.

    Round Six - Brands Hatch - July 21-23, 2017

    The mid-summer round on the Brands GP circuit was, as expected, drama packed and fiercely contested.

    Practice and qualifying were both sun-kissed, with the track in perfect condition. Tim and Tristan Reeves, the former nursing severe bruising after the well-documented Southern 100 crash the previous weekend, were again in brilliant form on their local circuit. From the word go, at near-lap record pace, they laid down a marker on the Carl Cox Motorsport Kawasaki and then sat back.

    Round Two Oulton Park

    Conditions for qualifying were cold and damp, but the Reeves Brothers banged in five quick laps on the Carl Cox Motorsport Kawasaki and then sat back. Chris Walker/Ashley Hawes and the Kershaw/Clark pairing ran at the front until the closing stages, when the reigning champions Stevens/Charlwood put the JG Speedfit Kawasaki into second. Amazingly, in fourth place were the Birchall Brothers with a very rapid 600cc Yamaha LCR just one second off the pole position time.

    The Race

    Late in the day, in gloriously sunny conditions the pack charged into Old Hall Corner with the pole men just edging it ahead of Stevens/Charlwood and a tooth and nail scrap between Walker/Hawes and Kershaw/Clark. The Birchall Brothers were less fortunate and did not make the most of their third row start on their Mitchells of Mansfield Yamaha. They were down in around eight place at the end of lap one with it all to do.

    With the opening round of the 2017 championship still nine weeks away, the number of registered crews has already hit record levels. An impressive thirty-eight outfits have signalled their intentions to contest most of the rounds, with a hard core of twenty-eight signed up for the entire series. This is indeed great news for the hordes of sidecar fans at trackside and at home. The over-riding factor is the return of several top names along with an influx of new talent. As a direct result, the quality of the 2017 grid will be at unprecedented levels.

    The conclusion of the Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship in association with The Molson Group takes place next weekend 14-16th October with a distinct possibility of a major upset. Reigning champions Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood take their Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki to the Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit in Kent with a seemingly comfortable forty-seven point cushion over five times world champions Tim Reeves and Gregory Cluze (Team E-Aide Motorsport Remse Racing Yamaha).

    Traditionally a favourite circuit with the sidecar brigade, the ultra-fast Cathedral of Speed will stage races seventeen and eighteen of the 2016 British Sidecar Championship this coming weekend 1/2nd October, with just two more races to go before the Champions are crowned for this season at Brands Hatch in a couple of weeks.
    It seems only yesterday we were welcoming Chris Walker and Ashley Hawes to the family as "new kids on the block", with barely any notion as to how they would fare. They take their Santander Salt Kawasaki LCR to Assen fourth in the table, with the added distinction of being the only crew to have scored points in every single race contested. This becomes even more meaningful when you consider that for the final round, there will be the usual double points in each race on offer. So ahead of Assen, there are still one hundred and fifty priceless points there to be had.

    Qualifying – A hot and humid session made it very hard work indeed, but lap record holders Ricky Stevens/Ryan Charlwood (Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki) grabbed pole position from Tim Reeves/Greg Cluze (Team E-Aide Motorsport/Remse Racing Yamaha).

    Row two was closely disputed with Ben Holland/Lee Watson nosing their Hannafin Kawasaki ahead of John Holden/Stuart Ramsey (Barnes Racing Silicone Engineering Suzuki). Chris Walker/Ashley Hawes (Santander Salt Kawasaki) renewed their battle with the Birchall Brothers on their 600 Honda to line up on row three.

    Seventy-four years ago, the village of Thruxton first shook to the sound of powerful engines as fighter planes roared into the skies over Hampshire. Next weekend (22-24 July) huge horsepower once again returns to do battle over the two and a half mile perimeter road circuit, as the British Sidecar Championship comes to town.

    All eyes will be on local Hampshire boys and defending champions Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood who hold a slender three point lead over their big rivals multiple world and British champions Tim Reeves and Gregory Cluze.

    Ben and Tom Birchall recorded a double win at Snetterton in the two races comprising the fourth round of the British Sidecar 600 Cup Championship which is run within the grid of the British F1 Sidecar series. The Birchalls now have 50 points and extend their lead to 16 over Nichols/Tilley.

    RKB-F1 Motorsport announced this week (originally posted in May but it's getting close now) that there will be an additional round of two races added to the 2016 calendar. The picturesque and historic Mallory Park will be the venue and the date is confirmed as the 30/31st July. The event is to coincide with the traditional Mallory Bike Bonanza, and the celebration of sixty years of racing at the Leicestershire circuit. Sidecars are to have premier billing, with two twenty-lap races on the Sunday, as well as extensive practice and qualifying sessions. Also expect to see historic and classic sidecars parade round the track at regular intervals.

    Round four of the Hyundai/Molson series takes place this weekend (8-10 July) and boasts a near record grid with two former world champions lining up against the current British Champions and series leaders. Clashes with world dates are now out of the way, and the field is clear for Tim Reeves/Greg Cluze, and Ben and Tom Birchall to make up lost ground in the domestic championship.

    Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood (Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki) left Knockhill on top of the standings and a twenty-five point margin over Reeves who was in Hungary. Now fourth in the table, the Remse Racing Team E-Aide Motorsport crew will need to find the speed thus far lacking from their Yamaha on the ultra-fast Norfolk circuit. They will also encounter strong opposition from Ben Holland/Lee Watson (Hannafin Kawasaki) and Chris Walker/Ashley Hawes who find themselves second and third respectively in the chase after brilliant performances in Scotland.

    2015 British F1 Sidecar champions Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood were aiming for a triple victory this weekend but their hopes were dashed when Ryan dislocated his shoulder during practice on Friday.

    Round 3 of the 2016 Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship took place in Knockhill, Scotland, at the weekend. This was a three-race round and the pair's main rivals were absent owing to a date clash with the world championship, so the stakes were high for Ricky and Ryan.

    The weekend got off to a bad start with Ryan falling off the outfit during the first practice session. He dislocated his shoulder in the process and was unable to take part in the rest of the weekend's racing action.

    Round 3 of the Hyundai Heavy Industries British F1 Sidecar Championship was held on the 24-26th June at the Knockhill circuit in Scotland.

    After the disappointment of a blown engine at the previous round at Brands Hatch, MKRacing's driver, Martin Kirk and passenger, Ben Hughes were keen to get some good results and put some more points on the board. A new engine had been given the Keith Whiting treatment and fitted to the outfit.
