TOM BIRCHALL ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

From the TT Press Office..

Tom Birchall, the most successful Sidecar passenger in TT history, has announced his immediate retirement from racing.

Alongside older brother Ben, the Birchalls have taken 14 TT race victories and been the dominant force on three wheels over the last decade, winning every single race that they finished since 2013 with only 3 DNF’s blotting a near-perfect run of results.

Over that period the pair have repeatedly re-written the record books, recording the first ever 117, 118, 119, and 120mph laps of the TT Course in the Sidecar class.

Chris Andrews

It is with much sadness to report that former sidecar driver Chris Andrews succumbed to a short illness on Sunday 15th October, peacefully with his family at his bedside. Chris had dealt with his deteriorating condition with dignity and bravery in equal measure since diagnosis in Summer 2022.

Chris and his brother Mal competed for almost twenty five years, starting in 1970 on a Triumph outfit, before upgrading to an immaculate Honda CB750 machine four years later, on which they were East Yorkshire Centre Airfield Sidecar Champions. In 1976, they – along with others – experienced a setback after making serious investment in the new 750 Konig engines, with numerous mechanical issues.
