The side­car pa­rade


A tasty side order is al­ways wel­come when trav­el­ling to Bel­gium... and Bik­ers’ Clas­sics will once again be the place to go for fans of clas­sic rac­ing ac­tion to see some great side­car rac­ers and some bril­liant ma­chin­ery. A special two-stroke side­car pa­rade will bring to­gether for the first time an im­pres­sive se­ries of big names in the dis­ci­pline, in­clud­ing many world cham­pi­ons, who will be re­united with their ma­chine. The list of par­tic­i­pants in this unique pa­rade is not yet com­plete, but it al­ready has names that sug­gest an un­for­get­table spec­ta­cle:

Rolf Bi­land (LCRSwis­sauto), sev­en­time world cham­pion be­tween 1978 and 1994. Rolf Stein­hausen (Busch König), world cham­pion 1975 and 1976. Bruno Holzer (LCR B2B), world cham­pion 1979. Steve Web­ster (LCR Krauser), 10-time world cham­pion be­tween 1987 and 2004. Ralph Bohn­horst (Wind­leyamaha TZ), world cham­pion 1989. Eg­bert Streuer (LCR Stre­dor), three-time world cham­pion from 1984 to 1986. Werner Sch­wärzel (Sch­wärzel König), world cham­pion 1982; Derek Jones (Iresonyama­hatz 750).

And many oth­ers who will prob­a­bly form the great­est panoply of world cham­pi­ons in the dis­ci­pline, gath­ered on the most beau­ti­ful cir­cuit in the world for a two-stroke con­cert that will leave in­deli­ble mem­o­ries for the eyes as well as for the ears…
