The British Sidecar Championship heads for South Wales and the Pembrey Circuit over the weekend of 13/14 April for the opening round in the 2024 season.

The track, located West of Llanelli and South of Carmarthen has hosted solos and sidecars at the highest level over many years, so is well equipped to stage this event. Organisation is by the Bemsee (BMCRC) club, with its usual busy programme of support races.

Three sidecar classes within the entry allows for differing chassis configurations and specification, so there will be no shortage of variety on show. The entry list contains strong names, with the absence of the defending champions, and one or two other world championship teams. The Pembrey event clashes with a World Championship sidecar event elsewhere, taking several teams out of the reckoning. This will only serve to strengthen the resolve of those teams registered for the entire season, who will profit from good points in the opener. Top of that list must be Lewis Blackstock and Paddy Rosney, twice runners-up, and twice third in the series. Could 2024 be the year for the DHR Yamaha duo? If so, they must make Pembrey count.

Father and son lock horns once again as veteran John Holden returns with Liam Gordon in the chair of his Yamaha LCR, whilst George Holden is back, and still with the talented and experienced Oscar Lawrence, aiming for glory on the 636 Holden Racing Kawasaki.

A thorn in the side of these regulars will almost certainly be relative newcomer Luke Williams, who with Jason Pitt for company on the Na Timber-AQ Logistics Yamaha LCR has more that proved his worth running at the sharp end last season. The former kart and car racer has brought that four-wheel form to sidecars with great success. They are destined for big things, and plan to contest the entire season. A compliment of over twenty teams have signed up for the full year, with Pembrey promising to be a good launch pad for what we know will be an eventful and thrilling season.

From Wales, the series moves to BSB at Donington Park, but for now, all eyes are on Pembrey.
