Ben and Tom Birchall travel to Croatia for the final round of the 2017 FIM world sidecar championship this weekend where they head the championship standings by 30 points and are close to securing their third world championship on Saturday.

The event will take place on the 4.168km circuit of Grobnik in Croatia, just south of Rijeka and although there are two races, the Mitchells of Mansfield supported brothers only have to complete the first race ahead of their nearest rivals, Paivarinta and Kainulainen to be crowned world champions.

Ben and Tom have spent the last couple of weeks preparing the LCR Yamaha R6 outfit for their final campaign and are confident it is in perfect condition and ready for the challenge.

The timetable is as below but remember that Croatia is one hour ahead of the UK.
