The most popular sidecar test week in the calender is once again just round the corner ahead of a new season.
Always well supported by crews from across Europe, Carlo's Trainingslager is scheduled from 18-22 March at the Val de Vienne Circuit in Le Vigeant, France.
This is an important test for all members of the sidecar fraternity, whether they are World Championship competitors, or National runners.
Open to all chassis configurations, the Val de Vienne test week has become a “must do” for any team eyeing success in the coming season.
It is particularly crucial to those members of the British Championship paddock who are switching to 600cc power in line with the new regulations.

The annual "Plum Pudding" races are once again being held at Mallory Park on Boxing Day (26th December), in a combined meeting for cars and motorcycles. At present there is a huge shortage of sidecars entered, and the class may well have to be cancelled unless an influx of entries are received today.

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.

Daryl Gibson and Ashley Moore, representing "Gibson Racing" have had a remarkable year after joining forces in the spring of 2018. They dominated the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Cup series - taking eleven wins and a further podium place from fifteen starts - winning the championship by an impressive forty four points. They also placed an excellent sixth overall in the "Super F2" category against the more established teams.

2018 has seen six weekends of top quality action from the F.S.R.A. / Lane Building Services Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship, and hopefully that precedent will continue at this weekend's concluding round, held at the annual "Sidecar Bash". With the title still to be decided, and a potential 125 points to be scored, it is mathematically possible for any one of eight teams to land the championship - although it will take a monumental effort for anyone to displace leaders John Shipley / Milo Ward, who take a fifty one point advantage to Cadwell Park.
