Windle was an English sidecar manufacturer that built road racing sidecars. The company was founded by Terry Windle and provided both monocoque Formula 1 as well as tubular Formula 2 chassis for use from club level racing up to and including World Championship level.[1] With five world championship wins between 1977 with George O'Dell and 2002 with Steve Abbott, Terry decided to retire in 2009. The name was revived by D&D Sidecars but they only manufacture tubular Formula 2 sidecars.
