    A grey dull day welcomed free practice, but things were better for qualifying. The main interest lay in the different capacity performance on the short Indy circuit.

    Could the 1000cc bikes use the power, or would the more nimble 600's out-corner them?

    The free session saw Kershaw and Clark nudge the Birchall brothers back, with John Holden/Lee Cain third on their 600, from Stevens/Charlwood similarly mounted.

    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

    After what seems to have been a long winter, the wait is over. Next weekend (14-17 April) the Brands Hatch Indy circuit will resonate to the sound of the strongest entry of sidecars in the history of the series. New rules which allow 600cc outfits to compete on level terms with their 1000cc big brothers have proved to be an outstanding success and have attracted unprecedented levels of pre-season registrations.

    Further rule changes include a “reverse grid” mechanism which will see the top ten finishers, regardless of capacity, line up for race two in reverse order.
    Add to this the fact that the Sunday race will be shown live on Eurosport TV mid-afternoon between the two BSB races, and a maximum number of spectators will therefore witness the action.

    MD and Dan in action 2012 at Scarborough

    The latest high profile name from the solo ranks to explore sidecar action in the premier three-wheeled championship is none other than thirteen times TT winner Michael Dunlop. Together with vastly experienced Manxman Dan Sayle, himself with eight TT victories under his belt, they will campaign the Birchall Brother's TT winning 600 LCR Honda as wild cards in the final round of the British Sidecar Championship on the Brands GP Circuit over the weekend 14-16th October.

    Two sixth places at Assen move Sleaford F1 Sidecar driver with passenger Jimmy Connell up into seventh place in the overall standings with one round, two races remaining in the 2016 British F1 Sidecar championship.

    Qualifying at the Cathedral of Speed went well for Horspole and Connell who were sixth in their class and seventh overall in the mixed grid of British and Dutch championship riders and they began the first race from a fourth row grid position.

    The annual BSB and British Sidecar pilgrimage to the famed Cathedral of Speed was greeted by the usual large and enthusiastic crowd, many of whom had trekked over from the UK to enjoy Dutch hospitality.


    Qualifying took place over two sessions on Friday with Tim Reeves/Greg Cluze (Team E-Aide Motorsport Yamaha) getting the verdict with a time set in session one. They were unable to improve due to a blown engine, but had done enough. The failure prevented any involvement in the second outing. Outgoing World Champions Benny Streuer/Geert Koerts shared the front row half a second behind, and current lap record holders Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood (Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki) were comfortably in third on the grid alongside Chris Walker/Ashley Hawes (Santander Salt Kawasaki).

    After a fantastic 2015 season the Portsmouth based WPS Formula One British sidecar champions of driver Ricky Stevens from Havant and passenger Ryan Charlwood from Dover made their announcement for the 2016 season at the National Exhibition centre in Birmingham on the first day of the Motorcycle live show.

    After a lot of hard work taking place since the end of the season in October the team will again be linking in with a British Superbike team - Quattro Plant - and will be known as "Quattro Cool Kawasaki, with the main sponsors being Quattro Plant and Cool Milk.
