One of the great features of the ISDT for most of it’s history was the participation of the motorcycle sidecar. Our site’s visitors logs show riders like P Bradley with his Sunbeam outfit or Stuart Weycott and his Velocette remain a popular search engine query that brings a lot of visitors

I was therefore very pleased when German reader Rainer Laidig sent me a copy of the guide he made to Sidecars in the ISDT 1951 – 1956. Although in German it contains many images, especially of British riders, that are wholly new to me as well as some of our own and its good to see our photos helping add to the knowledge of the world of this fantastic event and the amazing men and bikes and passengers too.
