FIM Sidecar: 2020 Calendar, Update 27th June

by | Jun 27, 2020 | FIM Sidecar World Championship

In line with the latest FIM update, the RKB-F1 Santander Salt organisational team are finally in a position to publish a schedule for 2020 which will allow a meaningful World Championship to take place. It has been a difficult juggling act in an ever-changing situation, with differing country rules and regulations playing a major part in the decision making.

Regrettably, the regular Le Mans World Endurance event scheduled for late August is now obliged to run without support classes, in a bid to keep as few personnel on-site as possible.

This means the Le Mans organisers have no choice but to forego their annual sidecar race inclusion, but are absolutely emphatic that sidecars are back on track for 2021. They consider the FIM Sidecar World Championship an important component in their 24 hour race weekend.

The intended German round at Lausitzring over the weekend of 14-16 August, is another casualty, but talks are still ongoing to find a replacement.

Just one clash with The Molson Group British Championship, whereby it will be impossible to do both events, and one combined World/British event at Brands Hatch two weeks later in October, make for a very varied and fascinating title chase, albeit shorter than planned.

Once again, we are governed by Government guidelines and all rules and regulations as they evolve. Ever mindful of this, and always with one eye on the global situation, we now have a championship worthy of the name, and we look forward to delivering the events laid out below.

Revised firm dates are as follows –

New schedule is :-

September 4-6 Rijeka, Croatia
September 26-27 Pannoniaring, Hungary
October 2-4 Oschersleben, Germany
October 16-18 Brands Hatch, Great Britain
October 23-25 Estoril, Portugal

 

All interested teams are now urged to submit their entries at the earliest opportunity, so that we can formulate strong grids at every round.
