The 2018 FIM 1000cc Speedway Sidecar World Cup and FIM Oceania Speedway Sidecar Championship is fast approaching and its set to be a global extravaganza.

Speedway sidecar champions from all over the globe will be in attendance and now marks a great time to analyse who will be in contention for victory on March 31 - April 1 (Easter Weekend) at Gillman Speedway, SA!

Teams from around the world include Great Britain, New Zealand, USA, France and of course Australia! The best of the best from these countries will compete for the coveted world title. These hotly contested events serve as an international battle ground where every inch of dirt is fought for tooth and nail.

All eyes will be on reigning World Cup and Oceania Champions, Warren Monson / Andrew Summerhayes who won the 2017 FIM Speedway Sidecar 1000cc World Cup and the 2017 FIM Oceania Speedway Sidecar Championship at Gillman Speedway. It was a fairytale victory last time out for the duo and it will be fascinating to see how they fare next week!

Fellow Aussies, Darrin Treloar / Jesse Headland are multi time FIM and Australian Champions and will be right in contention for another victory! The duo was amongst the favorites in 2017, but suffered a number of technical issues that cost them points in the Oceania event. They will be out to redeem themselves for this year‰Ûªs incarnation.

Current Australian Champions Trent Headland / Darryl Whetsone can‰Ûªt be discounted. They will be out to turn their local success into a World Cup victory.

It will be fascinating to see how the USA‰Ûªs best Joseph Jones / Thomas Summers fare. 14-time National Champion sidecar speedway racer, Jones has made a name for himself in his home country and now set his sights on the World Championship title in Australia. Look out for this pair, as they fly the red, white and blue at Gillman.

Another significant contender will be Mark Cossar / Carl Blyth, the current British Champions will also be desperate to claim the cup.

With several nationalities competing, it‰Ûªs going to be an exciting worldwide sensation on April 1 for the 2018 FIM 1000cc Speedway Sidecar World Cup and March 31 for the FIM Oceania Speedway Sidecar Championship.
