    Some rumours have been circulating in the last few days with regard to the Auto 66 Club's end of season "Bonanza & Sidecar Bash" event. The head of organisation, Peter Hillaby has confirmed this afternoon (Monday 9th October) that the event is most definitely ON!

  • No sidecars at Cadwell Park Auto66, September 2/3rd

    Unfortunately the sidecar class has been cancelled at this weekend's Auto 66 Cadwell Park event. This is owing to a shortage of entries (despite the club keeping the entries open, as several competitors had stated their intention to enter, but failed to send in paperwork).

    The solo and kart classes will still be going ahead as planned.

    Please ensure your entries are received for the "Sidecar Bash" with Auto 66 at Cadwell Park on the 28th & 29th October in good time (a.s.a.p.).

    Lee Crawford and Scott Hardie enjoyed a welcome upturn in fortunes at Cadwell Park in the fifth round of the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship, following a visit to Anglesey for round four the previous weekend which had proved somewhat frustrating. Their team mates, John and Jake Lowther had a more productive trip to North Wales, but less so at their "home circuit" in Lincolnshire.

However, their team mates, Lee Crawford and new passenger, Scott Hardie endured a frustrating event, unable to replicate their dominant form they had enjoyed the previous weekend at East Fortune in the Scottish Championship meeting, where they had won all four sidecar races.

    The annual "Cock O'The North Road Races" at Oliver's Mount, Scarborough will be held this coming weekend (24th & 25th June), and many classes are oversubscribed, with some entries unfortunately having to be returned. A full grid of Formula Two Sidecars will be fighting for supremacy in four races over the weekend, with "UK Super 2" points at stake in all of their outings. In addition, the "Robin Daykin Memorial Trophy" will be presented to the overall winners (highest point scorers over the four legs). The current holders - Dave Wallis and Harry Payne - will both be looking to retain the award, but this year line up on separate machines!

    Sidecar entries are needed in the next few days to ensure the class is run at the "Cock O'The North" Road Races at Oliver's Mount on June 24th & 25th.

    Entries officially close on Friday 26th May - however, by this time, many competitors will be at the TT. If insufficient sidecar entries are received by the closing date, the class will unfortunately be shelved. Presently, all solo classes are looking well subscribed, so there will be additional solo races to take the allocated time if entries are not forthcoming.
