British Championship Calendar 2020 announced

Even before the 2019 awards have been distributed, the calendar for the brand-new season has been finalised. Run on exactly the same lines as previous years, in a prime position in the British Superbike paddock, the series takes on an even bigger significance next year.

Roger Body and his RKB-F1 organisation has now also embraced the FIM World Championship as promoter, thereby ensuring date clashes are kept to a minimum.

In fact, at the time of going to press, there are just two conflicting dates, with a distinct possibility of reducing this to just one. Exhaustive efforts have gone into making this possible, with some exciting new venues included in that process.

This is an exciting development for those British Championship regulars who aspire to try their luck on the World stage. It also gives the opportunity for FIM series crews to attend the odd British round if they so feel.

Nine rounds are now scheduled for the British Championship, with a further eight currently being finalised for the FIM world series. There will be an announcement in the coming days as to the FIM calendar.

The British season kicks off in Cheshire, with the usual single race on the Oulton Park schedule. Limited track permission always compresses this event, but it is a great series opener on a traditional circuit. Then it’s on to Snetterton, before the long trek to Knockhill for round three.

The first of two visits to Brands Hatch is next up, followed two weeks later by the now well established Cadwell Sidecar Revival. This is the only stand-alone event, and takes place just two weeks before the BSB paddock descends on the Cadwell track for round six of the Molson Championship.

Assen and the Cathedral of Speed comes next, before a trip to Donington Park, and the Grand Finale back in Kent at Brands Hatch.

2020 promises to be a stellar season, with the sport of sidecar racing now looming large in the eye of the public, the TV viewers, and the countless thousands of track-side enthusiasts.

The annual awards presentation dinner and dance takes place on Saturday 25th January at the Best Western Bentley Hotel, South Hykeham, Lincoln, LN6 9NH.

Tickets are selling fast, but a number of high profile teams still have to submit their table requirements. This is by way of a gentle reminder to make sure you are there on what will be a great evening, to see our successful crews presented with their trophies.

Food and entertainment will be to the usual high standard, with dancing to “The Bradeney Bunch” and the usual disco until late.

We also have a couple of celebrity guests lined up to regale us with tales of daring and doing from the world of racing.

The evening is not strictly for teams and crews, the evening is open to all-comers, so if there is space available, then anyone is welcome to join in the fun.

Please contact Glenn Walsh by text, or by calling him on 07801 681233 for tickets and any other queries.
