    Birmingham Superprix And Birmingham Motoring Festivals

    What year was the photo taken? It is great to see those people looking pretty relaxed in public. Do you or anyone have any more stories from the Birmingham Superprix?

    Birmingham Superprix And Birmingham Motoring Festivals

    That is very interesting, never knew that there was an open day so the people can wonder around the paddock area to have a gander at the cars. I got very few photos from the 1975 and 1978 event and I would love to see some rare photos out there.

    That's very interesting...! New information to me. I will have to ask around what is the Birmngham council's involvement with the event. I only know that the Birmingham council sponsored a race at Mallory Park in 1972(?)

    Birmingham Superprix And Birmingham Motoring Festivals

    I am currently researching into the Birmingham Motoring Festivals that took place in 1970, 1972, 1975, 1978, 1980 and 1984. Also I am looking into the important years of the Birmingham Superprix from 1986-1990. Perhaps my website could jog some memories amongst you...

    Maybe it is worth a look in my Birmingham Superprix website: https://forix.autosport.com/8w/bsp.html I would like to make a new thread about the history of the Super Prix and allow people to contribute into the thread, which sub-forum is the best place for me to start?
