A wide variety of sidecars contested the four separate races however the final five lap race provided some of the best dicing between Doug Chivas/Matthew McKinnon (Yamaha TZ750 power) and Barry Horner/Chris Dinuzzo (Irving Vincent 1300 power).

The Chivo's Motorcycle Tyre entry won the overall Sidecar event, however the sound of that highly tuned Irving Vincent attracted a lot of attention.

SIDECAR PIT IMAGES: Selected images from the sidecar pit garages. From a technology perspective many of the sidecars were definitely not overshadowed by their solo counterparts.

#888: BARRY HORNER/CHRIS DINUZZO - 1978 IRVING VINCENT SIDECAR 1,300cc: As if the solo Irving Vincent's weren't enough, the team's sidecar is also a work of art, great stuff.

BEAUTIFUL FINISH

#4: BRUCE COLLINS/PETER DeANGELIS - 1972 SUZUKI IRESON 750cc: A 'waterbottle' power plant, the mechanicals of this machine are again, a work of art.
