In 2018 LHMC became a bike event organiser too, undertaking the organisation and management of the Lord of Lydden and Sidecar Burn Up event, which took place on the 20th / 21st October. LHMC is proud to be reviving this once great event and will be working to ensure that this is truly one meeting not to be missed!
First held in 1966 and won by Charlie Sanby, the Lord of Lydden has been a training ground for many a now successful motorcycle rider and has previously be won by famous motorcycle racers such as Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne and the last Lord of Lydden winner, Isle of Man TT racer Steve Mercer.
Turning to the sidecars, the Sidecar Burn Up was seen in 2018 too running alongside the Lord of Lydden in October, full grids of three wheeled machines are expected with them all chasing the Sidecar Burn Up title, previous winners of the Burn Up trophy include World Sidecar Champions Tim and Tristan Reeves.
We are excited to announce that the 2019 season will see the Lord of Lydden and Sidecar Burn Up on the 26th / 27th of October again. Will Danny Webb be able to hold his title as Lord, and will Tim Reeves along with his passenger Mark Wilkes be able to reign as champions again?
Rallycross was born at our home circuit in February of 1967 and since then has continued to grow in to the world-renowned sport that it is today, providing edge of your seat action with a guaranteed action packed programme at every meeting. Until recently LHMC was the promoter and rights holder for the MSA British Rallycross Championship, and to this day the club still plays an active role in the promotion of the championship through its promoting partnership with the BARC. Over recent years, LHMC has played an active role in the organisation of Rallycross events all the way up to the top level of the FIA World Rallycross Championship.
