British Championship

The British Championship is the second oldest of the formula's events dating back to 1971 when Mick Bonner won the title at White City. The Championship does however have the distinction of having been run twice in 1977 - once under the guise of 'Speedcars' at Newton Abbot! That probably makes up for there not being an event in 1974 - it was scheduled for November at Ipswich as an all Midget meeting but was cancelled. From the data I have seen I think it is likely that the title was not contested in the club's first years, 1975 and 1976 as the championship was a Spedeworth instigation not originally carried through at the Club's set up as an indepedent organisation.
