AHRMA Announces the 2020 Inaugural “3-Wheel Throwdown”
AHRMA is pleased to announce the 2020 Inaugural “3-Wheel Throwdown”. This will occur during AHRMA’s back-to-back road race weekends, July 24-26 at Blackhawk Farms Raceway; South Beloit, IL and July 31-August 2 at Gingerman Raceway; South Haven, MI. The goal is for this initiative to take place annually which will increase sidecar and spectator attendance, and offer informative sidecar sessions for interested participants. The “Throwdown” will include some special events, one of which is in conjunction with the Sidecar School. As a part of the sidecar school, the students will have an opportunity to participate in a “mock start” allowing them to experience a race start prior to their first race. This will take place at the end of the day on Friday each weekend.
Other special events will include the “Sidecar Show Corral” with the gathering of all sidecars in one location after Saturday Racing which will be held in conjunction with a seminar on Sidecar Technique. We have two special seminars, one to be held each weekend. These include “Racing in the Rain” conducted by Peter Essaff (Modern Sidecars) and Tim Joyce and Kat Collins (Vintage Sidecars) and “The Start” organized by Tony and Lisa Doukas (Modern Sidecars), and Eric and Celia Trosper (Vintage Sidecars). Scheduling for these seminars will be announced. Any other ideas are welcome, many more are in the works.
Sidecar racers new to AHRMA not licensed with a recognized organization must successfully complete the AHRMA Academy of Roadracing in order to race the weekend.
Registration is open, so register through motorsportreg.com as soon as possible!!!
See you at the races!
