Hot on the heels of the previous bulletin with regard to the former Revival Cadwell Park date, and the subsequent FIM release on the World Championship, RKB-F1 Motorsport is delighted to say that by the end of this week (w/e 6th June) we will be in a position to release a revised calender for the 2020 Molson Group British Sidecar Championship.

underway as soon as is humanly possible.
we continue to wish all our teams and supporters the very best of
health at this difficult time, and urge you all to follow the
guidelines passed to every one of us.
Whilst we are all in this suspended state, with not very much happening on the surface, it does not mean the feet are not paddling away below. We at RKB-F1 Motorsport are hard at it planning what hopefully will turn out to be the season we all want.
Given we now have 2 Championships running in parallel – The UK and World, we are looking to expand the team on the ground on race weekends, particularly in the area of PR, Social Media and TV.

The season opener at the picturesque Oulton Park circuit has traditionally offered just one race for the sidecar fraternity, mainly due to the constrained time allowed on track.
Church regulations dictate reduced noise on Sunday, so it has always been hard to fit two sidecar races into the busy schedule.
However, the sidecars continue to build their reputation with the BSB organisers and we have been able to negotiate two races, thereby giving the many track-side sidecar enthusiasts two bites of the cherry.
The two races will take place on Saturday however, with practice and qualifying on Friday.
Given that Eurosport TV now give full attention to the entire weekend, it is therefore highly likely that both races will attract TV coverage.
This is a new departure, great news for the teams and the Championship, and is one more example of the close relationship between MSV and RKB-F1 Motorsport.
All teams are reminded that registration needs to be by the end of February, and there are still many crews yet to sign up for 2020.
They will need to contact Mike Dommett email@example.com as a matter of urgency if they wish to be on the grid at Oulton Park.
