"Moving Grasstrack Racing Forward"
The Association was formed in the 1980's. It's aim to promote the new 500cc International class sidecar launched on this side of English Channel, thus giving UK riders a chance to compete on three-wheels on the continent. This includes the European Championships and the association can be proud to say it has held the final twice at it's former home track in High Easter.
The 2014 European final was the highlight and history made on that day when Josh Goodwin/Liam Brown became the first British crew to stand on top of the rostrum, becoming European Champions.
In 2015 the Association formed the 500cc Sidecar Super Series, a multi-round championship held in venues across the UK and Holland. This very competitive series gave us three different winners in the three seasons and also encourage new riders into 500cc sidecar racing. The Super Series ended in 2017 and in 2018 the club ran a excellent Eastern Centre and British Championships. Also in 2017 the club became the first to invite GT140s to be part of a regular grass track meeting. this class is for budget 140cc engined - grasstrack/speedway framed machines. The class was the brainchild of Jed Rolph and was organised on a monthly basis at a field in the Sudbury area. Since that initial meeting the GT140 have become possibly the biggest class racing in the UK and are now a big part of the British Grasstrack scene.
In 2019 the club was once again been invited to run one of the sports blue riband events. The for the first time ever the ACU presented the British Championships to the same club for the second year running. Once again the club ran a meeting that they can be proud of, And it ended with Club Chairman Shaun Harvey and passenger and committee member Danny Hogg crowned as the 500cc Sidecar British Champions...their 9th National Title.
In 2020 we have one meeting planned so far, the date is pencilled in for Saturday July 4th...put it in your diary and we'll confirm shortly!
