British F1: Cadwell Sidecar Revival cancelled, but get ready to rumble
Whilst the Coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc across sport, there are significant stirrings in the world of motorcycle racing.
MotoGP and organisers have published a plan to go racing from July, and MSVR, the promoters of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship are busily putting together a revised schedule which will deliver a meaningful series in 2020. The Molson Group British Sidecars are inextricably linked with BSB and we eagerly await those announcements to get our own season back on track.
The Cadwell Sidecar Revival is however a stand-alone event, and due to the uncertainty over legislation on crowds and foreign travel, we are sadly left with no option but to cancel this year’s planned extravaganza.
All is not lost though, because the date remains firmly logged with the Cadwell Park circuit, and there is every likelihood that restrictions will be eased sufficiently for some form of track action to take place.
Roger Body and the RKB-F1 team in conjunction with Bemsee, are therefore in negotiation with the circuit to run an F1 sidecar test and practice weekend over the 8/9th August.
With such a long lay-off, any track time will be vital, and we seriously hope we will be able to offer all F1 teams the shake-down they deserve to blow some of the Coronavirus cobwebs away.
We anticipate being ready to go firm with this plan very shortly, as well as announcing other developments linked to races with BSB.
