AUSTRALIA, VICTORIA, MELBOURNE. The Australian F1 and F2 Sidecar National Championship has locked down their 2017 season calendar, and this year will see competitors contest in four challenging rounds, two of which will run alongside the Australian Superbike Championship.

The hotly contested 2016 Championship saw F1 Sidecar regulars Jero Joyce and Corey Blackman claim victory, while Isle of Man superstars Mick Alton and Chrissie Clancy stole the F2 Sidecar Championship; and 2017 is shaping up to be a battle much the same.

Kicking off the calendar at the beginning of April, Sidecar rivals will head to Winton Motor Raceway, before the trek to Morgan Park in Queensland for Round two, Round three will see Sidecars come back down the coast to Sydney Motorsport Park. With the Grand Finale round still to be confirmed, 2017 is sure to be a true battle up and down the east coast.

For the full calendar, dates and locations for the National Calendar see below:

  • Round 1 – 28 – 30 April – Winton Motor Raceway, VIC – running with ASBK
  • Round 2 – 13 – 14 May – Morgan Park, QLD – running with Masters of Morgan Park
  • Round 3 – 8 – 10 September – SMSP, NSW – running with ASBK
  • Round 4 – TBC

 

If you can’t stand to be off your sidecar machine, then now is the perfect opportunity to write those dates in your calendar and get it locked down!
