Club sidecar entries from MDMD
The weather turned nasty as we drove into the paddock on Friday for the fifth running of the Cadwell Park Sidecar Revival with more torrential rain forecast for Saturday. That did not detract from the strong entry, despite other events taking place the same weekend.
The good news for the GP class entrants was that series leaders Todd Ellis/Emmanuelle Clement were in Austria fighting for World honours, as were second in the title chase Sam and Tom Christie. Hannafin teammates Rupert Archer/Adam Christie along with L&W Contractor’s Kevin Cable/Chaz Richardson were also chasing the same dream.
Former champions Steve Kershaw and Ryan Charlwood were the final high-profile defectors, but they had not entirely committed to the British series anyway.
That left the door wide open for Lewis Blackstock/Paddy Rosney DHR/Express Tyre Services Yamaha to gain big points, thus elevating them from third place in the standings. That they did with aplomb.
Opportunity also beckoned for George Holden/Oscar Lawrence, and Craig Currie/Justin Sharp who arrived at Cadwell in fourth and fifth places.
Bourne Photo will be attending both the BEMSEE event at Cadwell this weekend (including Friday for paddock, Saturday and Sunday track shots) and will also be shooting at the Sidecar Revival next month as one of the official photographers for the club.
and will offer single shots at £5 or a weekend deal for £40 for all shots of each individual outfit.

****ATTENTION ALL SIDECARS****
We are announcing a special discount for Snetterton entries today….
The discount is funded by the friends and family of George Paget, from his estate. George sadly passed last October, aged 80 and was a keen follower of motorsport especially at his local Snetterton. In particular, he had a soft-spot for Sidecars, so the plan, in his memory, is to offer all Sidecar entrants to the Snetterton May meeting a discount off the entry fee.

With the series at it’s halfway stage, the teams head to what is unarguably their “flagship event” of the year at Cadwell Park, with three points scoring races and a potential 75 points up for grabs which could prove pivotal in the chase for the final placings in both the Super and Cup sections of this two tier championship.Continue reading
Morning all, I have just checked with MD and sidecars have test sessions available all day at Cadwell revival. You choose to book all day or half day!
Timetables correct at time of print – check the link above for Meeting Info to be double sure!
As of 25th July we are now on v4 of the timetable.
It is with a great sadness that I have been asked to let everyone know that Jenny Wells has passed away this morning after a very short battle with cancer.
I am in a state of shock here. The last I heard from Jen was not that long ago when she was saying she wouldn’t be doing any more photography due to illness and then just days ago that she was too weak for treatment.
Jen my friend, you will be missed at race meetings.
Not only for the photos you loved taking and that were appreciated so much by so many, but for the proper laughs we had at circuits everywhere, if ever there was a chance to laugh at anything I got wrong you were always there.
Details of further arrangements will be posted when they are ready. I will see you all at The Revival
I’ll have one or maybe even two for you there Jen, and I won’t be alone in doing so. xx
I had to include a few shots 😉 ..
Do you fancy having a go as a sidecar passenger? Now is your chance at the Cadwell Park Sidecar Revival, the big sidecar meeting of the season, taking place August 6th and 7th.
