Who was this year's king of sidecarcross in his country?

29/12/2017

The biggest fan and media interest is, of course, the FIM World sidecarcross championship, of which we have a very good overview. But how is it in the national championships? Who has become a master in the most important countries for sidecarcross?

So we went to different websites and finally we prepared a list of masters with the final classification of ten national championships. Most of them come from the top 20 in the World championship.

So who won in the Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Great Britain, France, Switzerland, Estonia, Latvia and Finland?

From the following overview, you can see that most races were in Switzerland (9 in total) and the least in Finland and Belgium (only 3). The largest number of crews was in the UK (48), the Netherlands and France (both 47). Finland, at least, hosted them at least (11).

So here are the champions of this year.
