Hyundai British Sidecar Championship to feature at the Mallory Bike Bonanza
RKB-F1 Motorsport and Real Motorsport Limited, the management team at Mallory Park Circuit have today (Monday) announced that the Mallory Bike Bonanza will host an additional round of the Hyundai British Sidecar Championship on the 30th and 31st of July 2016.
The Mallory Bike Bonanza, traditionally a classic Motorcycle and Sidecar festival held at the Leicestershire circuit will this year be the venue for the 6th round of the Hyundai British Sidecar Championship. Extensive practice and qualifying sessions will be included over the course of the weekend, concluding with two twenty-lap races on the Sunday.
British Sidecars will not be the only feature races during the weekend, as the International Classic Grand Prix series will hold the only British round of their series at the Mallory Bike Bonanza too.
Roger Body, Hyundai British Sidecar Championship Series Promoter, “It was always thought we should have twenty races on our calendar, and with us not being included in the Silverstone BSB opener, we were effectively two races down. The Mallory Park venture is an ideal solution, and we have a good relationship with Stuart Hicken. He recognises the value in having the UK’s premier sidecar championship on this momentous weekend for them, and we are delighted to have been given this opportunity”.
Natalie Hansard, Manager at Real Motorsport Limited, “We are delighted that the Hyundai British Sidecar Championship will be part of the 2016 Bike Bonanza. The Bonanza is predominately parade sessions and so we are thrilled that such a prominent British race championship will form part of the weekend.
Hosting a British championship race at Mallory Park demonstrates just how far we have progressed over the past 2 and half years, and hopefully it is the first of many high profile, prestigious events to return to the Friendly Circuit”.
Alongside the Hyundai British Sidecar Championship, PR5 parade laps will be held on Saturday for road machines and PR6 Parades will be held on the Sunday for race machines. A classic charity trial will take place on Saturday afternoon with all proceeds being donated to Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance. Away from the track motorcycle owners clubs will return to club central promising to display a great array of machines from many different manufacturers and eras. Also, local bands will be taking to the stage on both Friday and Saturday evening accompanied by a licensed bar.
Admission tickets for the event and entry forms for the parades and charity trial are available from the Mallory Park website. Further details www.malloryparkcircuit.com
