    Grass Track bicycle racing is, exactly as the name suggests, racing bicycles on grass tracks. The difference in technique to the cc sidecar is that while entering corners, the passenger sits on the front of the sidecar wheel arch to transfer as much weight to the sidecar wheel and front wheel while the driver puts more weight onto the front wheel. On gravel you have to be smooth. How would you stack up against a pro cyclist? Tyres need to be well affixed, especially tubulars, and often tape is wrapped around the rim and tyre to help them stay on. The Bergring Gold Helmet was added to the Pentecost i.

The lowest divisions of modified production cars may be completely stock except for having their interior or windshields removed. The passenger controls the grip of all three wheels during the entire race and maintains balance along with steering. Dependent on the class, the sidecar can be on the right or left side of the bike.

    All the tracks are different, ranging from about metres to as little as metres. This summer, more riders are racing there than ever before. While approaching the corner, both the driver and passenger move forward to put more weight on the front wheel and the passenger slides down the right hand side of the bike, almost only 10 cms away from the ground. The more skilled the passenger, the more lightweight is the sidecar which results in the bike performing like a solo bike. Often flat, but can be on a slope, with varying qualities of surface.

The balancing done in the cc class is different than the other two cc categories because, in cc the driver hangs off more than the passenger who can lean only a little far or else they lose balance. Also there is a class called Pre Karl Maier was a 4-times winner, with a hat-trick at the end of the 'eighties.
