Did you race BriSCA F1 at Coventry during the 50’s ?

Coventry Stadium celebrates 60 years of Stock Car Racing

2013 sees a very special season for Coventry Stadium, where we will be celebrating 60 years of full on action packed stock car racing around the Brandon oval.

1954 saw a new trend come over the pond from the USA – Stock Car Racing and the Northern Stock Car Co Ltd were formed and after running a meeting at Bradford on May 26th they decided to stage the first ever Stock Car event at Brandon a month later.

Since then there have been highs and lows but one thing is for sure the drivers have always put on a stunning show for the fans.

There are lots of exciting things planned at Coventry during 2013 but the focus is on paying homage to the drivers that have supported the stadium over the years by placing their wheels on the Brandon shale. We are opening our doors to all drivers past and present to join us throughout the year.

Each month we will be concentrating on a decade of racing and our opening event in a few weeks time sees us reminisce on the 1950’s – May will see the swinging sixties, June the groovy seventies and so one until our huge celebration weekender in October.

We would like to welcome as many drivers as possible to join us for these events. If you ever raced an F1 at Coventry, we would like you as our guest for the decade you raced. We would like you to be a huge part of our celebrations, come and have a free night out and join Peter York for interviews and collect a commemorative award as a thank you for what you have done over the years to make Coventry what it is today.

All we ask is that each driver gets in touch to confirm their attendance prior to the event by emailing sophie@coventrystox.com or telephone / text 0777 234 4648
Come and join the party and let’s make 2013 another one for the history books!
