In memory of our dear friend Barry Sidery Smith, Organiser, Driver and Friend to many, the One Hour Barry Race is being held again at The Spa Summer Classic June 2018

During his life time, Barry provided the opportunity to race at Spa for (probably) thousands of people, and instrumental in providing access & logistics to races beyond the reach of most, such as Chimay, Zolder & Nurburgring, as well top meetings at British circuits, always ensuring a warm welcome to His Drivers. The UK & European Historic Racing Community definitely owes him a lot.


In 2018 to remember with fondness our dear friend and racing colleague Barry Sidery Smith the Sideways Club was formed.
The Sideways Club is designed for drivers who have raced with Barry, joined the club racing fraternity because of him, or anyone who knew and admired him. But it’s not just Barry’s Regulars that are invited to join the club, EVERYONE is welcome to join The Sideways Club and no registration fee is required. Barry would have been pleased to have seen faces old and new!

The annual race will start in 2018 at the Summer Classic event at Spa 22/23/24th June. It will give a chance for all those who have raced in the past at this event to still be involved. A BBQ or dinner/evening event will also be held at the meeting so everyone can get together to discuss the race and reminisce about the man himself.


If you are interested in joining, now or in the future, please complete the attached Club Registration form.
Please pass on details of The Sideways Club to other drivers and friends who you know would be interested in the event, just in case they do not receive this message.

If you would like to find out more, please contact Cheng Lim on 0044 (0) 7836 699339 or email


We are looking forward to racing with you !
