CTR Side Car Racing - Update from our team

CTR were on the world stage at Donington  in the 3rd round of the Eastern Airways RKB-F1 Sidecar Championship, which was being televised and run as a support class for the World Superbike Championship.

The team thanked their sponsors by providing first class TV coverage -putting in their best performance in the qualifiers, winning 4th position on the grid in the race line-up.

This result meant the team were obviously very buoyant about having a good race on Saturday afternoon, and concentrated on the normal maintenance procedures in the morning.

Saturday afternoon's race was very hard fought, with the CTR outfit coming home in 7th place due to getting held up in the opening laps.

With no major jobs to do on the sidecar, mechanic Chris and his crew were able to relax by watching the World Championship solo races.

Driving to take their 7th position on the grid for the second race of the weekend, driver Craig felt something was not right with the clutch, and entered the pit lane for adjustments, but time wasn't on their side. The pit lane closed before anything could be done, leaving Craig and passenger Kees to take their place on the grid.
Unfortunately, Craig's intuition proved right, the clutch failed and the sidecar ground to a halt, leaving the team very disappointed and downbeat.

However, this was the first mechanical failure for nearly a year-a statistic that no other team in the Championship has achieved. This is due to the skill and commitment shown by Chris Jobbins and Simon Thorley and their mechanical team.

So, a weekend of mixed fortune for CTR, who now head off to Knockhill in Scotland for the 4th round of the Eastern Airways Sidecar Championships, which will be back in the British Superbike paddock on 14-16 June.

NB: CTR have also relaunched their website ( ) thanks to Graeme Bell of Planet Twig who has joined CTR as a new partner.
The website will be regularly updated with results, news, videos and photos.
Thanks Graeme-it's good to have you on board
