DMSB Technical Regulations 2017 for the Sidecar class
(as at 07.12.2016 - Changes are printed in italics)
In case of doubt only the German text of the Regulations is binding.
This document contains the DMSB Regulations and special admissions for the Sidecar Class, based
on the FIA Regulations. Supplements/ changes/ homologations to/of the technical regulations may be
published by the DMSB at any time to ensure a fair competition.
Everything that is not expressly authorized in these Regulations is forbidden.
Any permitted modifications may not result in any prohibited modifications or infringements of the
Infringements of the Technical Regulations are covered in the corresponding Championship Regulations.
Regulations for Class SC F1 and F2
The IDM SC is open for F1 sidecars and F2 sidecars, i.e. vehicles with three wheels and 2 of
the tracks propelled by a combustion engine and forming a complete, integral unit. They must
be driven exclusively by one rider and have a corresponding platform for one passenger.
Only 4 stroke engines of mass production with a Stocksport homologation are eligible.
The engine fitted to the sidecar is decisive for the designation of the manufacturer.
Engines for F1-SC as well as F2-SC from model year 2005 and later may be used in the DMSBIDM division, provided that they were or are homologated by the FIM.
All components and materials must comply with the used and homologated engine including its
components, unless otherwise stated in these Regulations. The machining and/or modification
of components through polishing, micro spraying, lightening or through any other means is only
authorised if expressly permitted in following.
When two manufacturers are involved in the construction of a sidecar, the name of both shall
appear on the machine as follows:
• The name of the chassis manufacturer
• The name of the engine manufacturer.
Dimensions for F1 sidecars: See figure B1
Dimensions for F2 sidecars: See figure B2.
(Figures: See DMSB Motorcycle Yearbook, Blue Section).
The sidecar must be an integral part of the chassis or the machine. Swivel, pendulum or flexible
sidecar steering are prohibited.
Providing that the following Regulations are respected, the constructors are free to be innovative with regard to design and overall construction, respecting the relevant guidelines.
Engines of class F2 are eligible in F1 chassis, all the guidelines for F1 machines are furthermore applicable.

Technical checks / Findings
If the non-compliance of a participant’s vehicle with the Technical Regulations is established for the
first time and if, in the option of the Chief Steward, the infringement does not represent any advantage
in performance for the participant concerned, a reprimand, a fine or a drop of positions may be considered sufficient.
If the non-compliance is established after a practice session / race of the second or last session and if,
in the option of the Chief Steward, the vehicle did not comply in the previous sessions either, the Chief
Steward may apply a penalty in compliance with § 118 German Motorcycle Sporting Code (DMSG),
exceeding the aforementioned penalties.
The decisions shall be taken by Race Control / the Stewards / DMSB.
