Stalker set for Sidecar return in 2019

Fans’ favourite Chris Walker will be back on the grid this season as he returns to the Hyundai Construction British Sidecar Championship after agreeing a new deal with Anvil Hire TAG Racing.

BSB race winner and former title runner-up Walker moved from two to three wheels in 2016 before a crash at Cadwell Park a year later sidelined him from action after several podium appearances.

Walker's new passenger will be Tom Christie, the youngest of three racing brothers from a Lincolnshire family steeped in sidecar racing. The pair will be out for the first time at the annual Val de Vienne test session in March, which will mark the first time Walker has been in a sidecar outfit since his Cadwell crash. 

Walker continues his involvement with the team working alongside Shaun Winfield, alongside his attack on the British Sidecar Championship.

Walker said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my debut year with a sidecar outfit and loved every minute of it. 2017 was less successful and ended up with me being injured half-way through the year. I am first and foremost a racer and I do have unfinished business in the championship.

“There’s no way I wanted to end my racing career off the back of an injury. I know it won’t be easy but I have a great team behind me and an enthusiastic young passenger in Tom Christie, who has a proven track record.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back on the bike. The French test will tell me everything I need to know about the new 600. We’ll start steadily, get to know each other and hopefully build on that.”
