Until the Birmingham Road Race bill was passed in Parliament in 1985, road racing had been banned in mainland British roads. Five consecutive F3000 rounds were held, and they were notable for the reverberating noise and the numerous accidents. The pits were the forecourt of Bristol Street Motors, and the paddock a multi-storey car park. The first Birmingham Superprix in 1986 was marred by torrential rain, but subsequent races passed more happily. Plans to lengthen the circuit in 1991 (shown below) to comply with FIA regulations were quietly dropped as the event slipped from the racing calendar.
