Update at this time:

FIM Sidecar World Championship- 2020 Calendar, Update 27th June

 In line with the latest FIM update, the RKB-F1 Santander Salt organisational team are finally in a position to publish a schedule for 2020 which will allow a meaningful World Championship to take place. It has been a difficult juggling act in an ever-changing situation, with differing country rules and regulations playing a major part in the decision making.

 Regrettably, the regular Le Mans World Endurance event scheduled for late August is now obliged to run without support classes, in a bid to keep as few personnel on-site as possible.

This means the Le Mans organisers have no choice but to forego their annual sidecar race inclusion, but are absolutely emphatic that sidecars are back on track for 2021. They consider the FIM Sidecar World Championship an important component in their 24 hour race weekend.

The intended German round at Lausitzring over the weekend of 14-16 August, is another casualty, but talks are still ongoing to find a replacement.

Just one clash with The Molson Group British Championship, whereby it will be impossible to do both events, and one combined World/British event at Brands Hatch two weeks later in October, make for a very varied and fascinating title chase, albeit shorter than planned.

Once again, we are governed by Government guidelines and all rules and regulations as they evolve. Ever mindful of this, and always with one eye on the global situation, we now have a championship worthy of the name, and we look forward to delivering the events laid out below.

Revised firm dates are as follows -

 

DATE                           VENUE               COUNTRY         FMN

04-06 September         Rijeka                 Croatia                HMS

26-27 September         Pannoniaring      Hungary              MAMS

02-04 October              Oschersleben     Germany             DMSB

16-18 October              Brands Hatch      Great Britain         ACU

23-25 October              Estoril                 Portugal              FMP

 

All interested teams are now urged to submit their entries at the earliest opportunity, so that we can formulate strong grids at every round.
