It is Mike Wilds indeed, and there is Ian Flux in the #16 Lola T594C and John Brindley in the #1 Lola T530. But that's all I know.

I thought it would be a good time to revive this thread as this weekend is the 25th anniversary of the first Birmingham Superprix in 1986.

Probably of interest to some marshals, here is the Marshals Allocation Sheet for the '87 Super Prix.

Best part of 300 marshals on track I think we had 20 people on fire tenders 8 or 9 rescue units about 100 in pits paddock and start line plus race control no wonder I was ****** after the event after answering the phone every night for 3 weeks I had the phone on my lap every night I would just keep answering call after call, and sending out the passes but wonderful times the best event I was ever involved with and I am speaking for lots of others as well.

Brilliant photos, you may recall me contacting you via Flickr Mail. Please keep them coming as you can. They are lovely to look at.

In the past few years, I have always had Martin Hone's email address (from his International Festival Services Ltd company)

I tried to send him an email tonight but it bounced back. After a very quick Google search, I found out that his IFS company has been liquidated/closed down.
recently
So is there any way I can get in touch with Martin Hone?

Thank you

Best ever meeting in world.

It was my second ever meeting, I enjoyed every second, even if it was in the support paddock, the team made me feel very welcome, some of the best times in my marshalling years was spent at the superprix weekends.
Shame we will seen another like it.

88, 89, 90 superprix's

Why Birmingham Superprix race could not be run to this day or future and why it ended in the early 90?

The control of the city council changed to a left wing Labour group, who decided, among other reasons, that the event wasn't sufficiently 'ethnically diverse'. There was also the issue that on a balance sheet not all of the economic benefits to the city were seen, so the event made a 'loss' even though it brought many millions of pounds into the city economy, which combined with the face a new act of Parliament was needed for a 3 day event, combined with the cost of circuit and paddock improvements, meant the event was allowed to die.
