At present there is no class for Swallow Sidecar (SS) sidecars at JCNA Concours. I recently purchased a 1925 SS sidecar and would eventually like to show it for display or judging at JCNA Concours. I am proposing a change to JCNA Judging Rules to develop a 1922-1945 sidecar class. I am requesting Competition Class C1a/PRE, and Driven Class D1a for them. The class should allow for the sidecar to either be unattached or attached to a period motorcycle. I realize the term ‘period’ is somewhat ambiguous, but maybe that’s irrelevant as long as the host motorcycle is not being judged… If attached to a motorcycle, only the sidecar and it’s attachments should be judged.
I feel this will promote the early history of SS/Jaguar through JCNA, which up to this point only recognizes SS/Jaguar vehicles 1927-present. My (or others) sidecars displayed/shown at Jaguar Concours will help tell Jaguar’s early history.
One of the sections on the Judging Change Request Form asks whether this change has been proposed to the JagLovers Forum and what were the nature of the responses. Any input you provide will be appreciated.
