Classic Racer - - PADDOCK GOSSIP -

Fol­low­ing last year’s suc­cess­ful Side­car Re­vival at Cad­well Park, the event re­turns to the pic­turesque Lin­colnshire cir­cuit over the week­end of June 22-23. There is a VIP re­cep­tion planned for the celebrity guests at the Grand Hall on Fri­day evening, fol­low­ing a test, prac­tice and pub­lic­ity day at the track. Former world cham­pi­ons pledg­ing their sup­port over the week­end, along with their le­gendary ma­chin­ery, in­clude the two most suc­cess­ful ever, Steve Web­ster and Swiss legend Rolf Bi­land. The event com­mem­o­rates 70 years of the FIM World Side­car Cham­pi­onship, and 40 years of LCR chas­sis suc­cess, the brand hav­ing won 37 world side­car ti­tles within that pe­riod. There will also be the cur­rent crop of world cham­pi­onship reg­u­lars, as this unique event will be host­ing a round of the British Cham­pi­onship un­der its new ti­tle spon­sor the Mol­son Group. In ad­di­tion there will also be cham­pi­onship races for the FSRA F2 out­fits, and the Ca­math­ias Cup. The former world cham­pi­ons will pa­rade their iconic twostroke ma­chines twice each day, and will be on hand in a spe­cial mar­quee for sign­ing ses­sions. Join­ing them will be Louis Chris­ten, the bril­liant engineer be­hind the side­car chas­sis which bears his ini­tials. There will be some­thing for solo fans too with a round of the Grand Prix Orig­i­nals series. Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion can be found on­line at www.rkb-f1side­
