FIM Sidecar World Championship

Provisional calendar changes announced

The published dates for the FIM Sidecar World Championship are still very much on target with the global pandemic situation appearing to be significantly improved.
One early planned date however, that being the 23-25 April TBA event, is now formally removed from the schedule.
Work is at an advanced stage between RKB-F1 Motorsport, the FIM and a major circuit organiser to replace this round later in the year.
News on those negotiations is expected imminently, so we anticipate the scheduled number of rounds will be unaffected.

Oulton Park opener moved back to late June

The Bennetts British Superbike Championship celebrates its 25th anniversary season against a challenging backdrop of COVID-19 restrictions and a ban on spectators during 2020.

The current regulations on crowd attendances at non-seated venues are set to be lifted on June 20th, so MSVR has taken the bold decision to postpone the start of the new season until the legions of loyal fans can return in force to support and celebrate a quarter of a century of the series.

Intrinsically linked with this decision, the British Sidecar Championship will also benefit from the returning hordes of spectators. The traditional Oulton Park season opening race will now move to the first available restriction-free weekend, that being 25-27 June.

New talent going for 2021 glory in “Generation Game”

Fresh ground was broken at the end of the 2019 season when a youngster, almost a rookie in fact, beat all the established stars to the British Championship title. Todd Ellis, partnered by the experienced Chaz Richardson set the paddock alight, and made everyone sit up and notice. It’s a known fact sidecar crews can continue racing at a high level far longer than their solo counterparts, and that has led to the age profile in the paddock tending to be higher. The number of youngsters coming into the sport is small, so when we do get real talent at an early age it is something to be celebrated and promoted. In most cases, the younger element is attracted by family involvement with the youngsters growing up alongside three wheels rather than two. For 2021, three such riders will be hell-bent on making their reputations and following in the footsteps of Todd Ellis.
