Twelve Pre-Injection teams headed north to East Fortune near Edinburgh for their fourth championship round over the weekend of 13th and 14th July. Following a wet qualifying session, the weather changed for the better, with a hot and dry weekend for the duration of the event. The Melville club provided food and entertainment, making for a great atmosphere and it was a totally enjoyable weekend for all racers and their supporters.

Lee Crawford and Scott Hardie have had a fruitful fortnight of racing. Over the weekend of 29th and 30th June they made their debut in the Molson Group British Sidecar Championship, held alongside B.S.B. They placed well in all sessions, and led the second race for seven laps until a clutch problem saw them retire at half distance. A week later, they found themselves on the Isle of Man for the Southern 100 Races, and incredibly in only their second attempt they took a podium place and achieved a lap time which puts them as the seventh fastest team around the 4.25 mile public road circuit.

Good morning all! 

We are back from Holiday and sooo much to catch up on.. it was great by the way. 

I'll start getting all the reports and previews on this evening.. don't forget all the results are being kept up to date by Mark in the Race Office on the forum!

Without Mark we'd be in big trouble

The Molson Group Sidecar championship table heads for Scotland with a very different look after the Cadwell Sidecar Revival.
That meeting just days ago re-ignited title hopes for John Holden and Lee Cain (Barnes Racing/Silicone Engineering Kawasaki). They raced to a trio of second places ahead of their team-mates Lewis Blackstock and Paddy Rosney who now sit third in the standings.


Star turn at Cadwell, and new leaders with a fifty-one point buffer is the Santander Salt Honda of Todd Ellis and Charlie Richardson. An impressive hat-trick of victories saw them overhaul reigning Champions Steve Kershaw and Stuart Clark, who had a miserable weekend in Lincolnshire with a crash and mechanical problems. They came away with just thirteen points, and will now be absolutely determined to make good on home ground North of the border.

Pete Founds / Jevan Walmsley (LCR Suzuki) absolutely dominated the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar events at the second annual “Sidecar Revival” at Cadwell Park over the weekend of 22nd and 23rd June. They topped the timesheets in every session, claiming pole position and a hat trick of wins, breaking the lap record each time, and now head the standings by sixty five points. They were also presented with the Steve Norbury Trophy as winners of Sunday's opening F2 Sidecar race.

The much publicised Cadwell Sidecar Revival is here. After many months of planning, negotiation and sleepless nights, this festival of sidecar racing at the historic Cadwell Park circuit has arrived.
This coming weekend, we will be celebrating seventy years of world championship sidecar racing, forty years of LCR sidecar construction, and the entire concept of the sport of sidecar racing.
Central to the programme will be three races for the Molson Group Championship competitors, who arrive here hot-foot from a hectic and eventful Brands Hatch, which saw Steve Kershaw and Stuart Clark emerge in the title lead on their Molson Group/Express Tyres Yamaha LCR.
They are chased by 2018 runners-up Todd Ellis and Chaz Richardson (Santander Salt Honda).

The 2019 Isle of Man TT races got under way for “Team Shand Racing”. Driver Gordon, will have Tony Belsey in the chair this year. Tony, passenger’s for Gordon at the short circuit racing back on the mainland, UK.


A lot of work had to be done to the “Shand Chassis” Suzuki, 600, before the team were to take off down “Bray Hill”. Work commitments back home meant that there has not been a lot of time to prepare the machine. Not what Gordon wanted, but that’s just how things have worked out.

Almost perfect conditions proved a thankful contrast to that of round two, as teams headed to Donington Park for the third installment of the F.S.R.A. / Lane Building Services Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship, hosted by N.G.R.R.C.

In the F2 class, Rob Fisher, with regular passenger Rick Long back in the chair took their 600 Baker Thundercat to a hat-trick of victories to claim maximum points finishing first on the road in all three races. Next up, and also sealing three wins in the F1 class were Joe Heys / Gary Wheeler (1200 Heys Kawasaki), in what is Joe's fiftieth season of racing!

The second round of the 2019 A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship saw another lap record fall, in a weekend featuring some fantastic racing. There was a win each for Lee Crawford / Scott Hardie, and series leaders Pete Founds / Jevan Walmsley, both similarly mounted on LCR Suzuki machinery. Rob Atkinson / Glenn Dawson (Bellas Suzuki) were the dominant force in the F2 Cup, taking both wins to move up to third in the “series within a series”, despite having to miss the opening round at Snetterton a month ago.
