Interesting read about the F1 sidecars the other month. I thought I’d write in and tell you that this is what happened when I got on an F2 last weekend at Cadwell. I’ve done classic front exit sidecar racing before, but not rear exit. And we were a bit rushed to get out in to the race, so I never got a briefing. I tried to work it like a classic; head out on the lefts, swap hands over to the right. Oops. We had ‘the chat’ over lunch and the next race went fine, until we blew a water hose. But I’d had the chance to watch the others and realised it’s ARSE OUT HEAD IN! Duh! I can’t wait to do it again.

You can’t wait to do it all again? What, fall out?

Uh oh...
This is gonna...
Really hurt!


You can win a set brilliant Oxford Optimiser 3X

for simply writing the Fast Bikes Star Letter.

A “soft-start” charging mode to improve recovery of deeply discharged batteries as low as 8 volts. Intelligent charging will “cycle-charge” in an attempt to recover sulphated batteries. Suitable for all 12V automotive batteries including LITHIUM LiFePO4 batteries. New voltage sensors quickly detect high current drain and will automatically revert to the most appropriate charge rate. Fast and efficient charging in all modes keeps charge times short and reduces power consumption.
