noth devon atlantic coome martin meeting CANCELED to sidecars

Post  Leigh on Wed Jul 10, 2013 7:38 pm

Andy Carter and Simon Chell have both been speaking to the club and only 1 sidecar has been entered so far.

I know August 11th is still a month away but the club really needs to know numbers.

After last years poor entries, I doubt we will be invited back should it happen again this year. If there arent enough entries the class will not run

The regs are on the amca website.

I have been advised by our entry secretary [Andy Sollars] that up till yesterday we have only received 4 side car entries for our Aug 11th meeting. We require at least another seven entries by the end of the week, or we will have to cancell the side-car races. Up untill a month ago we had 14 crews who had said they would be coming, but since the Chester club decided to run a meeting [without consulting us, as layed down under AMCA rules] we have been deserted. After last years fiasco, when we were abandoned at the last moment, I'm afraid this could be the last time sidecars are invited to our race meetings. I don't know how the solo entry at Chester is going, but we have already reach over 100, so we will definately be running. If you want to enter please phone Andy [after 6pm] on 01769 540016 and support the four crews who have already entered, after all it's not their fault they wont get a ride that week end

Due to lack of entries, the sidecar class has been cancelled this year.

Only 4 sidecars entered at Chester Classic. The club have said they will not be putting a sidecar class on nxt yr. Brian Bodfish had apparenly booked this championship round at the begining of the year . If coombe is cancelled why dont the crews entered for that contact chester classic

I am not digging at anyone here, so don't all get pissy.
The reason for the lack of entries is money.
I worked out if nothing at all goes wrong with the outfit a meeting 100 miles from home taking into account diesel, food, bike fuel, entries,consumables etc costs in the region of £200.
But if you need a new back tyre £50, chain £50-£80.
It's simple economics.
Maybe a few passengers should be like me and Greg and put there hand in their pocket occasionally.

Other factor to money (which I agree with)  is the fact there are too many meetings to choose from.  Mortimer/IMBA/Frome/chester. that's four on the trot.  That equals £800 for 1 month racing on dougs shoe string.


Ps. I`ve put my hand in my pocket for the last 9yrs keeping the weslake on the track.

We haven't been racing due to my back problems-if they can tell me that racing won't make any worse (accidents etc don't count) we will be back out there,maybe slow and at the back but gives others a job to overtake us (lap us?). I have always paid for the entry and half running costs. When taking Mick+Sue they paid half the fuel.x Sad
