2023 brings a new season and a new look to the British Sidecar Championship.
The series now has an exciting new formula which will see grids containing long F1 outfits and short F2 machinery going head-to-head, with a class award for the F2 bikes at each round.
There is also an opportunity within the races for teams running the heavier and lower specification F1 bikes to compete for the “Cup Class” award.
This is bound to stimulate interest and create large grids at each race. The sight of twenty-five or more outfits in their new colourful livery is a sight to behold and will be a valuable addition to the British Superbike race schedule.
Five rounds are agreed on that stage, with a further two rounds at special stand-alone events dedicated to sidecar race action.
The championship has grown in stature over recent seasons and attracts top-level support, with most of our world championship teams supporting the domestic series when they are free. We will continue to bring you all the action as it happens, the latest team news and paddock gossip, plus highlights of all races on our YouTube Channel. You can stay abreast of The British Sidecar Championship on the device of your choice, so you won’t miss a thing.
This final round had two unique features which could easily turn the year on its head. Both races would carry the traditional double points allocation, and in a final twist, all competitors were obliged to drop the two least productive races.
The weekend began as early as Friday with an open test session giving interested teams the chance to re-acquaint themselves with the 1.2 mile circuit. Express Tyre Services sponsored the British Championship races, enabling this prestigious series to run within the Jock Taylor Memorial event.
The Jock Taylor Memorial meeting over the weekend of 2/3 September is a well-supported stand-alone event which will see the “Best of British” go head-to-head for points in the penultimate round of the British Sidecar Championship.
