Team Christie Racing – Announcement

2020 ANNOUNCEMENT


We’ve made the decision to remove our entry from the World Championship and continue with the remainder of the British Championship.


Not an easy decision to make but it had to be made.
Next weekend we go to Snetterton for Round 2 with BSB, another circuit we’ve not raced at for a few years, looking forward to getting stuck in!

FIM Sidecar World Championship

From Barry Nutley

The ongoing and fast-moving situation with COVID-19 and the way it is impacting on global sport has us all on our toes.


The RKB-F1/Santander Salt organisational team, along with the FIM, is working frantically behind the scenes to try and deliver the promised new-look FIM World Championship.

PR Opportunity at RKB-F1

Press, Media and TV Person

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.

Ideally 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.

We 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 taking interviews and video snapshots at both series, to edit into those shows.

This 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.

If you feel this is something you would like to become involved in, and are interested in exploring this further, please make contact in the first instance with karen@bgsp.co.uk by sending a current CV along with a covering letter.

We look forward to hearing from you!

FIM World Sidecar Championship Calendar 2020 announced

By Barry Nutley

PLEASE NOTE – MIKE’S EMAIL ADDRESS HAS BEEN UPDATED.

RKB-F1 Motorsport in association with Santander Salt Ltd. has reached an agreement with the FIM (the International governing body of motorcycle sport) whereby they have arrived at an eight round series across seven different countries for the 2020 FIM World Sidecar Championship.

This is the result of extensive discussions between new series promoter Roger Body, the FIM, the circuit organisers, and a large degree of cooperation and advice from German former ace driver Ralf Bohnhorst.

“Bohni” as he is affectionately known, has been very involved organising the series in recent years, building a sound platform from which to move forward.
