The Australian Sidecar Championships will join ASBK at Winton Motor Raceway in Benalla, over the March 12-14 weekend and again at Wakefield, over the April 16-18 weekend. These two rounds will constitute the first and second rounds of the Sidecar championships.

With continued support from Horsell and Pagid Brakepads, the 2021 season is shaping up to be hard fought battle in both F1 and F2 sidecar categories with additional rounds to be announced in the coming weeks. Spectators are also being promised an even better spectacle, with ASBK Sam Redfern excited to make the announcement.

Sam Redfern – ASBK Events Manager

“We are very excited to have the Australian F1 and F2 Sidecar Championship back on track in 2021. ­­The sidecars have always provided race fans with sensational action and close racing at both Winton and Wakefield and we are sure both rounds will attract strong fields. While COVID-19 meant sidecars were unable to get on track in 2020 we know teams will be itching to kick-off 2021 in style at Winton Motor Raceway.”
