THE ISLE OF MAN 'SIDECAR 70'

The Federation of Sidecar Clubs is planning a special event for 2016, open to all sidecarrists and based on the Isle of Man.

The Concept

Helen Gibson - a name that will be familiar to sidecar racing fans – has had an illustrious career as a top sidecar racing passenger

In her 40s she took part in F2 sidecar races at Crail, Knockhill and East Fortune and her favourite course, the Southern 100, having previously been a meeting secretary, first-aider, circuit marshal, photographer, correspondent and much more.

Now approaching her 70th birthday (17 September 2016) and living on the Island, Helen realises she has never been a passenger in a road-going outfit. So the idea is to get 70 outfits over to the Isle of Man and take Helen out for a special birthday spin in a sidecar - on the TT course! Participants would pay a small entry fee and there would be some other fundraising activities - all proceeds going to local charity, the TT Riders Association.

As well as making Helen's day (hopefully!), this will be a great opportunity to visit the Isle of Man in the company of other sidecarrists. The Isle of Man after all holds a great mystique for all motorcyclists, even those not involved in racing.

The Logistics

So are you interested in taking your outfit over to the Island for this event around Saturday 17 September? It won't be a rigidly organised event – you will be free to travel when you wish via Heysham or Liverpool and you'll be free to choose between camping, B&B or hotels.

Helen is well-connected locally and has already got us an indication of some of the discounts available - for example:

4* hotel, crossing for car + 2 people 2 nights = £55 (crossing) +  £145-£169 (depends on hotel)

3 nights = £192-£226, extra night = £47-£57

3* B&B, crossing for car + 2 people 2 nights = £55 (crossing)  + £88 accommodation

These are just rough figures to indicate that this event need not cost a fortune to attend - and there will be camping options available as well.

That weekend also hosts the Isle of Man Rally, and the Isle of Man Food Festival, both great events, and it is planned Stan Dibben and a TT Sidecar star would do an evening event, so you won't be bored!

What Next?

For now we just want to know if there is sufficient interest to make this happen. Later on we will be looking for some commitment, so that we know whether we can reach our target of 70 outfits, and so that we can maximise  any discounts on ferry travel and accommodation.

If you are interested we would be grateful if you could complete the slip below and return it to Fed Chairman John Hind at foscchair@jhind.co.uk
