Rumor Mill

So there’s a couple things floating around the Sidecar Rumor Mill…

First, there’s some shake up that French Superside driver, Sebastien Delannoy will be coming over with his LCR for 2008 to do some racing with us for two or three weekends.  He’s a very accomplished Superside racer, with several French Sidecar Championships under his belt. Click here for his stats and details.

This is unconfirmed as of yet, but the whisper comes via EMC Shocks, one of Sebastian’s main sponsors.  Hopefully it pans out, as it will be really exciting to run against a full blown French Sidecar Champion on our home turf.

Second, Tim Lobley and Darren Tritton in the UK with Popsworth Racing are looking to come Stateside as well during the second half of the Superside America season.  They would be bringing over a trellis frame F1 sidecar that Tim designed himself running on LCR hubs powered by a Suzuki GSXR-1000 engine.  Here’s their website with team details and results.  This pair are no stranger to the podium.

So far it’s shaping up to be one hell of a season.  There are a couple other neat things I’ve heard about, but I’ve been told to keep them under wraps.  As soon as I’m able to blurb them out, I’ll post something up.  Lots of exciting things are in the works behind the scenes in the SRA!
