Becker Moto Works F2 G1k Powered Race Sidecar
A what? Heck, you know what that is. Now you a need a monkey. A what? The affectionate term given to the poor guy/girl hanging off the darn thing. How cool would it be to show up at your local track day with this thing? It looks like fun in the pictures but then I think about really doing it: well maybe not so fun (did I say fun?

Created decades ago for club racing as an affordable alternative to the spiraling cost of exotic rear engine F1s, the exquisite tube frames of these machines are now as expensive and exotic as F1. Steering must be done with more conventional forks, usually leading link type, and the frame must be constructed of steel tubing. The short wheelbase machines have a more conventional engine position under the driver. Like in F1, the chairwheel is braked but not steered or suspended. A top form F2 team with lightweight and spry handling can match an F1 on a tight track.

Check it out on BARF. If that isn’t the best acronym out there I don’t know what is.
