Lee Crawford (Team A.R.C.) is seeking a committed and experienced passenger to compete at this year’s Southern 100 Races on the Isle Of Man (10th – 13th July).
The outfit is an immaculate brand new C.E.S. Suzuki, and has been prepared to the very highest specification, regardless of cost. (Obviously the outfit is being thoroughly tested at short circuit events prior to the Southern 100).
On their last visit to the Billown Circuit, Team A.R.C. placed third in the Sidecar Championship Final, with a fastest lap of 99.808mph. The team are hoping to build on these solid foundations, and will be looking for further podium placings this year.
If you are able to assist, please contact Lee directly on 07967596141 to discuss.

A new season began for the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship at Croft over the weekend of the 1st and 2nd April with N.E.M.C..R.C.. Reigning Champions Pete Founds / Jevan Walmsley (LCR Honda) showed that they meant business from the outset, topping the timesheets in every session – landing pole, both race wins and a new F2 lap record in an unblemished start to their campaign.
Meanwhile, in the F2 Cup, whilst not taking championship points, wild cards Kieran Clark / Andrew Johnson (Windle Yamaha) put their thirty year old carburetted outfit way in front of the registered teams, mixing it with the top Super F2 teams in both outings, providing some excellent entertainment.

Following intense negotiations over the last week in regards to sidecars not being covered within the UC Insurance policy, we can confirm negotiations with insurers have now been completed.
Within these negotiations it has been agreed that a strict and robust risk management plan must be implemented in regards to side car competitors and machines going forward, with highly detailed documentation being formed and presented throughout this year.
With agreement reached on this, we are pleased to say side cars will now be able to compete at MCUI UC events in 2023.
We now all need to look forward and address insurance company concerns together as a centre throughout 2023, should we want racing to continue in 2024.
You are invited to Estonia to compete at the Porsche Ring in Pärnu on 03-04.06.2023. to the stage of the Estonian championships. The Porsche Ring has been recognized as the best circuit in the Nordics and the Baltics (www.porschering.ee) and in addition it would be a great opportunity to enjoy a completely new circuit for you in Northern Europe, Estonia, for a change from Central and Southern Europe. The schedule is still to be specified, but it is estimated that 2 free practices, 2 qualifications and 2 races (sprint and race) could be raced. The closest race is 16-18.06.2023 in Finland at Motopark (www.Motopark.fi)
I would like to know how many of you would be interested in it and able to come. The more the merrier!
I am waiting for answers to my email firstname.lastname@example.org
Following the news yesterday evening (14/03/22) that the Ulster Centre of the MCUI had secured an insurance policy for racing in Northern Ireland, we were informed this morning, from a third party, that the Ulster Centre insurance policy for 2023 does not in fact include Sidecar racing.
