Episode Description

Though we set out to complete this project in 2016, through some unforeseen circumstances this was just not possible.  We have now set out to ensure that this is done and dusted as earlier as possible in 2017.

This episode we start welding up the bottom engine mounts and start positioning the engine in the jig.  Stay tuned for more episodes shortly!

Team Thompson Racing’s First Junior Speedway Sidecar Build

Project Description

In 2015, Team Thompson Racing set out to receive funding and support to build a junior speedway sidecar that will promote junior sidecars all over Australia.  In 2016, we are aiming to complete this project.  There are quite a number of different components when building a complete sidecar from scratch, including frame design, front end design, ground clearance, length and width of the bike, engine, exhaust system, fuel system and cooling system, just to name a few.
