Happy New Year everyone, it’s now time to start making plans and preparations for the 2022 season. If you intend registering or would like more information regarding the 2022 A.C.U. / F.S.R.A.

Round 1 – Brands Hatch 22/23/24 April; Round 2 – Donington Park 14/15 May (Bill Boddice Trophy); Round 3 – Anglesey 25/26 June; Round 4 – Cadwell Park 6/7 August (International Sidecar Revival); Round 5 – Croft 20/21 August (Battle of Britain); Round 6 – Knockhill 10/11 September.

Have you thought about inflating leathers?

From Graham Masheder….

“Having been in discussions with BKS Leathers they are confident that they can utilise the Alpinestars Tech-Air technology for sidecar drivers, but unfortunately not for the passenger.”

What do you think? Would you use them? I think if I was a driver I would… and thank you Graham for asking the question!

2021 saw a step towards a return to normality following a truncated 2020 season, which had been one of cancellations and restrictions in the world of motor racing.

There was a memorable return for the first British F2 Sidecar Championship races to be held in Scotland for almost two decades. Knockhill served up some first-class racing, with new lap records achieved in both the Super F2 and Cup classes as the final placings were decided at the end of a fascinating season – which whilst disrupted by the “Covid-19” pandemic – was a credible six round series, featuring thirteen points scoring races.

There was a hat-trick of wins for both the F2 and F1 F.S.R.A. / Wintec Racing Pre-Injection Championship leaders at Croft over the weekend of the 21st and 22nd August. Rob Fisher / Sarah Stokoe (600 Baker Yamaha) won all three F2 races with ease, and were the first Pre-Injection outfit home each time overall. Simon Horton / Jordan Forrest (1200 Wintec Suzuki) took the three F1 race wins, bouncing back from their disappointing Sunday last time out at Cadwell Park.

Another faultless display saw Lee Crawford / Scott Hardie (LCR Suzuki) take pole position, a double race win and a lap record, on a weekend which finally landed them the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Championship – a prize the team has been chasing for seven seasons. While Harry Payne / Mark Wilkes (GP Yamaha) had a slightly more problematic weekend, second place in the opening race and other results going in their favour saw them accrue enough points to secure the F2 Cup in their debut year in the series.
