The only unchallengeable team is this year’s F1 class winners who were crowned at Cadwell Park three weeks ago: congratulations to Gary Fairhurst and Billy Williams on their Windle ZZR9R. This year they have finished all twenty-five races with twenty-three wins. Battling for the remaining top three championship places in the F1 class will be: Mark Burns / Steven Winfrow (1000 LCR Yamaha) and the big 1100cc Suzukis of John Stevenson / Amanda Mason and George McMahon / Mick Ranson.

F.S.R.A. / 1st Call Refrigeration Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship – Round 6 Cadwell Park Sidecar Revival – Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th August


Words – Marianne Walford

It is always a highlight of the season to be part of the Sidecar Revival meeting, where we get to see both the British Championship and the F.S.R.A. F2 championship as well as the Bemsee club sidecars and classics in the Camathias Cup. In the programme we had our own race, but due to low numbers in the BEARS class, they were added to our races on a split-start grid.

F.S.R.A. / 1st Call Refrigeration Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship – Round 5 – Anglesey


Words – Marriane Walford

Saturday was bright with a strong wind. The Pre-Injection series provided a good entry of twelve outfits who joined the six Wirral 100 Open Sidecars. The practice session included the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 championship riders and a total of 35 outfits recorded times, which was intimidating for the crews with novice drivers and passengers.

F.S.R.A. / 1st Call Refrigeration Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship – Aintree – Saturday 10th June


Words – Raitch Greenwood / Photographs – Haydn Wyatt

Saturday 10th June saw round four of the F.S.R.A. Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship, supported by 1st Call Refrigeration heading to Merseyside, for their first visit in several seasons to Aintree – in scorching weather conditions. Uncertainties for those who had not raced at Aintree before were soon forgotten as what turned out to be a fantastic meeting got underway with three sidecar races. Alas, entries were a little down compared with other meetings, some due to technical issues and some due to clashing with the TT, but for those that attended this was a very rewarding experience.

This coming Saturday, Aintree M.C.R.C. invites the F.S.R.A. Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship to their second event of 2023 at the Aintree race circuit near Liverpool. The numbers are down from usual with nine entries to date, but this is mirrored by the club sidecar entries being down also with five entries. Both championships are missing teams over in the Isle of Man, helping or involved with the T.T. Races.

We wish to thank the Aintree Motor Cycle Racing club who have always supported sidecars.
