FIM Sidecar World Championship – Provisional calendar announced for 2021 season
Since becoming official promoters in 2020, the aim of the RKB-F1 Motorsport and Santander Salt organisations has been to work closely with the FIM and circuit organisers to raise the profile and integrity of the FIM Sidecar World Championship.
Under the constraints of a Global pandemic, the challenges have been immense, and it is still possible that obstacles will arise because of the ongoing situation. However, a determined effort and huge cooperation by all parties has resulted in ameaningful eight-round schedule across at least six countries on top class circuits.
Part of the aim was always to bring world-class sidecar racing to the big stage, and there is no bigger platform than the Le Mans 24-hour World Endurance race. That is where the action will begin over the weekend of April 15-17th.
Provisional dates are as follows:
|April 15-17||Le Mans-Bugatti, France||2 x races|
|April 23-25||TBA||2 x races|
|June 26-27||Pannoniaring, Hungary – TBC||2 x races|
|August 20-22||Grobnik-Rijeka, Croatia||2 x races|
|September 16-18||Le Castellet-Paul Ricard, France||2 x races|
|October 1-3||Oschersleben, Germany||2 x races|
|October 15-17||Brands Hatch, UK||2 x races|
|October 29-31||Estoril, Portugal||2 x races|
Effective 2021 the two different race length format is discontinued i.e (Sprint and Gold). All rounds will now host two races of the same duration.
The management team of RKB-F1 Motorsport and Santander Salt would like to extend sincere thanks to the FIM, circuit organisers and all other involved parties for their tireless efforts in making the 2021 season possible.
