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.

Oulton 4

Team A.R.C. enjoyed an immensely successful end to their 2018 campaign, with fruitful visits to Castle Combe, East Fortune and Oulton Park in a year which Lee Crawford and Scott Hardie have enjoyed their best performances to date in the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship.

Misfortunes at East Fortune for some saw championship leader board changes, after Simon Horton's Wintec 1100 Suzuki had an excursion to the Scottish countryside in qualifying, ending his racing weekend. This allowed John Shipley / Milo Ward (Ireson 1000 Yamaha) to head the charge against the the fifteen strong grid to earn a maximum sixty points with four wins.

As the results become available Mark Dennis regularly keeps the Race Office Section of the forum here up to date for us. 

Melville have been at East Fortune, including the FSRA Pre Injection. As soon as the results are updated on mylaps we will have them all but the FSRA results have already been posted.

BMCRC - or Bemsee as they are known - are running sidecar taxi rides at their Brands Hatch meeting on October 6/7th. 

There will be not only the F1 and F2 sidecars that are normal competitors with Bemsee but some of us BHR Teams will be bringing our BEARS outfits down to have a ride round and spread the word about this cheap, fun and friendly class of racing. Thanks to MDMD and Slow Phil for arranging to have us as guests. 

If you fancy a ride round the iconic Brands Hatch circuit on an F1, F2 or Bears (British European or American Race Series) outfit, then

Thanks also to Sue Wood for reminding me to get this up here on the front of the site. 

Cheers all!

Lee Crawford and Scott Hardie, representing "Team A.R.C." on their 600 LCR Suzuki, returned to winning ways over the August Bank Holiday weekend, dominating proceedings at their local circuit, Croft. They took pole position and two convincing wins in the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Championship races, firmly consolidating their second place in the current championship standings.

Apologies for the slightly late report (holiday time!), but what a fantastic Sidecar racing event Donington Park proved to be, with sixty plus outfits at the meeting made up of in excess of twenty British F2’s, similar numbers of Pre-Injection machines and complemented with a handful of club racers.

Thank you all for your support so far this season, as we head off to Anglesey in (hopefully sunny) North Wales next weekend, with twenty-three teams entered - a record number for one of our championship events.
