Sidecar Championship – Kick off 9th March
The opening round of the 2014 AMCA Sidecar Championship takes place on 9th March at the excellent Long Lane circuit.
Some exciting news for the Sidecar crews, IMBA Qualification has also been revamped dramatically for 2014 with three of the first five Rounds being used as qualification for a place in the GB Team to compete in this year’s IMBA Sidecarcross Championship which kicks off with a trip to Oss, Holland on June 22nd. The 6 Round Series, which runs from June to September, visits France, Holland, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland as well as the home GB Round in August at Rhayader, Mid-Wales.
Two places are up for grabs in the GB Team (possibly three) and they are open to new AMCA members for 2014 (i.e. – teams who did not hold an AMCA licence in 2013). This is a first for the AMCA as in previous years only teams who raced under the AMCA banner the previous year were allowed to ride in IMBA competition the following season.
