Monday Night Sidecar Session Cancelled

Monday Night Sidecar Session Cancelled due to red flag in previous session. Sam West injured but OK.

From @ttracesofficial

“Sam West was involved an incident near Laurel Bank, reported as conscious with hand and leg injuries. The fire service were required to extinguish his machine and he has been airlifted to Noble’s Hospital.”

“We are still managing the incident and by the time we’ve got the solo riders back, it will be too late. Unfortunately tonight’s Sidecar session will now be cancelled.”

I’m putting together a page of all the sidecars at the TT

Can you help me? I’m putting a page together of all the sidecars at the TT in order, but I need a few more photos to finish the page.
If you have any better than the ones on the page already that I can swap I will do as well.

The PAGE IS HERE, have a look and if you have any of the missing numbers or better photos please mail to me via the contact page or message me on FB Thank you!

THE FHO Racing name is set to make its Isle of Man TT Sidecar debut at this year’s event as it reveals an exciting new association with Peter Founds and Jevan Walmsley.

Isle of Man TT Races Set to be Completely Carbon Neutral For The First Time


The Department for Enterprise is making steps to reduce the carbon footprint of this year’s Isle of Man TT Races with the recent appointment of strategic partner, Pozitive Group.

The partnership will result in the first carbon neutral TT as Isle of Man based Pozitive Group have committed to funding a carbon offsetting programme that will cover the total emissions created by the Isle of Man TT Races including international visitor travel.

The full carbon impact is estimated to be around 5000 tonnes of carbon based on data from 2019, however the total 2022 emissions will be calculated post-event using a number of verified data sources, including the official race reports to capture racing emissions and the statistics from the 2022 TT Visitor Survey to calculate the impact of attendees, including travel data. Pozitive Group will also carry out a broader on-event assessment of any additional factors that may contribute to the final carbon emissions calculation.

Legendary Spa circuit hosts World Championship round three, June 2-5th

From Barry Nutley

The sight of grand prix sidecars streaming through Eau Rouge and away along the Keppel Straight is a sight to stir even the most passive of motorsport fans. That is what to expect the weekend of June 2-5th when the third round of the FIM Sidecar World Championship again joins the FIM Endurance World Championship, this time at the famous 4.352 miles Ardennes circuit of Spa Francorchamps in Belgium.

Four races are already done with fierce battles up front. Young British star Todd Ellis (Santander Salt Yamaha) and French lady passenger Emmanuelle Clement, hold a slender four-point lead over reigning champions Markus Schlosser and Marcel Fries. The Swiss Gustoil Yamaha team have been as strong as last season, earning universal respect for their skill and determination.
