After several attempts to reorganise the 2020 calendar and careful discussions regarding the difficulties caused by the Coronavirus disease (#COVID19) pandemic at the organisational level, the FIM, the promoter RKB-F1/Santander Salt Ltd, the national federations of Croatia, Hungary, Germany, Great Britain, Portugal and the local organisers have been forced to cancel the 2020 FIM Sidecar World Championship.
Given the ongoing circumstances and restrictions associated with the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, the FIM and RKB-F1/Santander Salt Ltd organisational team have had to make the following changes to the 2020 calendar.
Cancellation of the rounds at Le Mans, France (29-30 August) and Lausitzring, Germany (17-18 October). Rescheduling of the round at Brands Hatch, Great Britain on 16-18 October.
Revised dates are as follows: DATE VENUE COUNTRY FMN 04-06 September Rijeka Croatia HMS 26-27 September Pannoniaring Hungary MAMS 02-04 October Oschersleben Germany DMSB 16-18 October Brands Hatch Great Britain ACU 23-25 October Estoril Portugal FMP

particularly in the area of PR, Social Media and TV.
we see the person filling this part-time role as a graduate, or a
young person wishing to gain experience in the world of marketing and
PR with a view to progressing in the field of sport journalism,
television or similar.
currently have TV footage edited and produced for our own website and
YouTube channel, whilst the World Championship has a bespoke
highlights package produced by the FIM. We are also considering

is an opportunity for a keen graduate or young person to be exposed
to the world of motor sport media, and to learn from our already
experienced personnel some of the tricks of the trade. More than
anything initially, it needs to be considered as work experience,
with a view to moving ahead as things develop.

are interested in exploring this further, please make contact in the
first instance with firstname.lastname@example.org
