The 2021 A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship Incorporating The F2 Cup

Preview Round One – Brands Hatch Indy – N.G.R.R.C. Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th April

This is the first visit to Brands Hatch by the F.S.R.A. for seven years, last playing host to the season opening meeting in 2014. On that occasion the Super F2 wins were shared by Conrad Harrison / Lee Patterson, and the late, great Ian Bell and his son, Carl. The F2 Cup spoils were taken respectively by Dean Lindley / Rob Bell, and Alan Founds / Tom Peters. The latter crew went on to dominate the Cup in spectacular fashion, finishing every one of their eight races, scoring four wins and four runners-up placings. In 2015, the same combination went on to win the overall Super F2 category, before moving to the F1 series. However, it gives the F.S.R.A. great pleasure to welcome Alan back for the 2021 season, with his regular passenger Jake Lowther (LCR Yamaha).

COSTELLO & STOKOE RETURN TO SIDECAR RACING WITH NEW PERSONAL BEST

Maria Costello MBE made her return to racing after a year out of action and claimed a new personal best competing on her LCR Sidecar at the BMCRC-MRO Championships at Donington Park at the weekend.

The Northamptonshire racer’s entire schedule of road racing was scrapped this year because of the Covid19 crisis that shut down much of the country.

Maria could finally make her return to short-circuit sidecar racing thanks predominantly to new sponsor RAM Safety Solutions Ltd and continued support from NGK Spark Plugs UK Ltd, Mark Coverdale and MJW Specialists.

WIRRAL 100’S ‘ANGLESEY GRAND’ MEETING CANCELLED

Today (1st September) the Wirral Hundred’s committee, after consulting with the Anglesey Circuit and after taking into account the continuing uncertainty and anomalies over the Welsh Government’s strict Covid-19 lockdown restrictions banning sporting events involving more than 30 people, agreed regrettably, in the absence of any tangible easing of the restrictions, to cancel the Club’s ‘Anglesey Grand’ race meeting scheduled for 10th & 11th October. The sadness is that so far no motorcycle road race meetings have taken place in Wales in 2020.

MoTeC ECU – Know what you are buying

An article from Andrew ‘Angus’ Brooke

MoTeC is a fairly expensive bit of kit, so do your research in what you are buying. I will be telling you rough prices of new kit, and things to keep eye out for with second hand.

THIS IS NOT A SALES PITCH, instead I want to inform. I have no issues with other systems, or second hand kit, but sometimes deals aren’t as good as they appear.
