British Sidecar Championship – from Barry Nutley
Further to our bulletin of last week, we are now delighted to announce the following schedule by which we can have a meaningful four or five round 2020 championship.
Very much linked to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship as usual, three of those rounds are with BSB, the opener at Cadwell Park in a “stand-alone” event replacing the original Revival date, and an exciting second independent meeting at Knockhill in September. The Knockhill organisers are always very appreciative of top-class sidecar racing at their popular flagship track. A two-day meeting is planned 19-20 September (arrival Friday 19th).
Stuart Gray, Director of Knockhill is delighted that British Championship sidecar action will be not be missing from their revised 2020 schedule.
The three BSB weekends are at Snetterton, Donington Park and the Brands finale in October.
Unavoidably, compression towards the end of the season has resulted in one outright clash with the Santander Salt FIM Sidecar World Championship, with one joint British/World weekend. Final dates for the FIM series are imminent.
As always, any schedule is subject to the Government guidelines remaining constant. Should the COVID-19 situation and science dictate a different course of action, we will be obliged to fall in line.
New schedule is –
August 8-9 Cadwell Park
August 21-23 Snetterton
September 19-20 Knockhill
October 2-4 Donington Park
October 16-18 Brands Hatch
