Sidecar racing started for TDR in 2018 with the purchase of a Formula 1 sidecar. Purchased out of California
and brought to Florida. Having never driven a sidecar
before it was a macho man decision as I can handle this.
That said my wife Lisa jumped on asking the question of
was my choice of sidecar good?? We learned slowly that
it was not the best to begin our sidecar racing career on
a Formula 1 sidecar.
After a short season of getting the bugs worked out on
the Formula 1, we deciding to sell it for a seasoned,
well built Formula 2 sidecar. Our first test drive was at
Nola Motorsports park in New Orleans. A bit bumpy to
say the least. Lisa cracked a rib or 2 just hanging on.
After that we progressed slowly to a great balanced racing team.
Pictured at the right is the sidecar as we purchased it
from Peter Essaff my mentor. He helped us progress to
where we are now. The 2nd picture below is the same
sidecar #42, we now own racing in the Isle of Man in ?
Pictured to the right is how the sidecar now looks
painted in the new TDR race colors. As of 2020 we are completely refreshing every component and adding some
of the new FRT technology as well as upgrading to a newer fuel injected engine that will have the complete treatment
of friction reducing products.
This sidecar won the overall AHRMA Modern F2 sidecar class in 2019. 2020 has seen a small amount or racing as Covid canceled many races. That has made time for me refresh and upgrade all components.
