Mansfield brothers Ben and Tom Birchall begin their bid to bring a second world title back to the town when the World Sidecar Championship gets back underway on 12th April at Donington Park.

The first round of the British F1 Sidecar Championship takes place at Donington Park just a week earlier over the Easter weekend of 4th-6th April.

It will be the first race of the 2015 campaign for the team and an ideal opportunity for Ben and Tom to check their outfit is in tip top condition for the World Championship race the next week.

The team intend to contest as many rounds of the British Championship as possible, but unfortunately some rounds do clash and the dates below take this into account as the rounds that clash have been removed from the list.

Ben and Tom will also return to the Isle of Man on the F2 outfit and will contest two TT races and then the Southern 100 championship.
