The racing season is about to kick off, and for the first time since 2009 I don’t have a licence. It’s an odd feeling: I am envious of all those out on circuit and miss the social side, but also there is a freedom in having weekends to do other stuff! I’m about to start the 2016 talks season, all over Herts and Essex, and (for the next couple of years) in Somerset. More info here.
TT numbers are slowly being announced: there is no official list until the programme is printed, but some teams have chosen to publish their numbers already. Estelle with her new passenger Freddie go at #25, with Fanch and Bruno at #34. Is there a particular team you’re following, whose number you’d like to know? If so, post here or on InkyAnn Racing (Facebook) and I’ll see what I can find out.
For those of you who’d like to follow the sidecar world and find out more about some of the teams and characters, from local club racers to those at the TT and championships, tune in to Sidecar Radio which is presented by Slow Phil.
