Wimbledon is under threat from redevelopment and may not be around much longer. The emission charges were the first blow to F1s in the capital, but Spedeworth always made the F1s feel welcome.

Wimbledon’s front stretch grandstand has been closed for a while, but it is still a well-appointed race track. It’s one of the many great facilities on the BriSCA F1 circuit and fans from overseas are often amazed at the standard of the spectator facilities at our raceways.

Dean Whitwell tested the Wimbledon fence, and lost! Dean is still recovery from injuries sustained at Ipswich a few years ago, but he was back on track during the 2015 season and all F1 fans hope he will be seen on the raceways again in 2016.
