At the previous round – Castle Combe, Pete Founds and stand-in passenger Jake Lowther took a double win on their LCR Suzuki to land Team Founds an unprecedented fourth consecutive British Championship title. All being well, Founds should have Jevan Walmsley back alongside him at Mallory Park, having recovered from a minor foot injury sustained at Croft in August.

    Anglesey Circuit is the host for the fourth round of the 2019 A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship on the weekend of the 3rd and 4th August. This event marks the half way point in the series, and already champions of the last three years – Peter Founds / Jevan Walmsley (LCR Suzuki) have a commanding 65 point lead in the standings, having won six out of the seven races this year. They dropped points only in race one at Donington Park, finishing as runners up to Lee Crawford / Scott Hardie (LCR Suzuki), who occupy second place in the Super F2 title at the present time. However, the Team A.R.C. pairing will be arriving in North Wales full of confidence having taken a dominant brace of wins at Oliver's Mount last weekend, with the popular North Yorkshire road racing circuit finally resurrected following months of uncertainty.

    Almost perfect conditions proved a thankful contrast to that of round two, as teams headed to Donington Park for the third installment of the F.S.R.A. / Lane Building Services Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship, hosted by N.G.R.R.C.

    In the F2 class, Rob Fisher, with regular passenger Rick Long back in the chair took their 600 Baker Thundercat to a hat-trick of victories to claim maximum points finishing first on the road in all three races. Next up, and also sealing three wins in the F1 class were Joe Heys / Gary Wheeler (1200 Heys Kawasaki), in what is Joe's fiftieth season of racing!

    The second round of the 2019 A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship saw another lap record fall, in a weekend featuring some fantastic racing. There was a win each for Lee Crawford / Scott Hardie, and series leaders Pete Founds / Jevan Walmsley, both similarly mounted on LCR Suzuki machinery. Rob Atkinson / Glenn Dawson (Bellas Suzuki) were the dominant force in the F2 Cup, taking both wins to move up to third in the “series within a series”, despite having to miss the opening round at Snetterton a month ago.

    Having just about recovered from the rain and wind at Oulton Park a fortnight ago, the third round of the 2019 F.S.R.A. Preinjection Sidecar Championship travels to Donington Park on the weekend of the 11th and 12th May. This looks set to be an interesting weekend of sidecar racing, with the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Championship also being hosted by N.G.R.R.C. Seventeen Pre-Injection sidecars have entered, comprising of eleven F2 and six F1, this being the greatest turn out so far this year.

    Donington Park is the setting for the second round of this year's A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship over the weekend of the 11th and 12th May. Three weeks have now passed since the opening event at a very chilly – but mainly dry – weekend at Snetterton. The trip to Norfolk was a particularly fruitful one for reigning champions Pete Founds / Jevan Walmsley who had a perfect weekend, with pole position, two wins and shaved a massive 1.9 seconds off the lap record. In the F2 Cup, series debutants Michael Kirkup / Arlo Brown topped the timesheets in every session, and took two convincing wins and hold a ten point advantage in this section.

    Unfortunately the second round of the 2019 F.S.R.A. / Lane Building Services Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship saw fewer competitors – not due to a lack of enthusiasm or interest, but owing to the fact that the shared grid of sidecars was over-subscribed well before the closing date for entries.

    The 2019 F.S.R.A. / Lane Building Services Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship kicks off next Sunday (April 7th) at Leicestershire's Mallory Park circuit. This biggest change to this increasingly popular series is that following discussions and a vote at the A.G.M. last November, is that there are now two distinctive “classes” within the championship.

    Apologies for the slight delay with this report - slowly drying out (not my drink problems on this occasion - but all the kit clothing and bike etc.)! Well done to the brave that experienced Cadwell’s micro-climate of: rain; snow; sleet; wind – and - more rain! With such adverse weather conditions affecting both days of racing only one race each day could be held. But the good old British spirit and lunacy kept us all going with high levels of morale.
