As a motorcycle sport, sidecar trials has always had its dedicated following who enjoy watching a team of two people in charge of the machine’s destiny. This bond between the driver and passenger is a vital ingredient to success, where a slight change of action or position can ultimately lead to success or disaster. In 2018 the ACU Wessex Plant Hire (Bristol) British Sidecar Trials Championship has enjoyed its fair share of action, from the start way back in March with the Doncaster Cup right through to round eleven, the final one, in the south at the Hookwood trials venue. A total of 38 contestants scored championship points proving just how healthy this two-wheeled motorcycle discipline is, where teamwork wins. The rules state that each event should be contested over 36 hazards, making for a hard day’s competition, to ultimately find the British champions. Here we take a look at the action from last year’s series, which concluded after the previous Trial Magazine issue of 2018 had gone to print.
