Friday 9th/Saturday 10th September 2022 – Mildenhall/Ipswich

5 September 2022 Off By bscda


It’s finally here WF 2022!

Just days away! The WF weekend begins with Friday night thunder at the atmospheric West Row Stadium – great covered stands, amongst the best stadium food in the UK and fish and chips to die for and the traditional ‘eve’ of World Final Warm Up! Plus a great bar!

This is an atmospheric start to a celebratory weekend and with friends from afar now returning after two years of Covid and the penchant for party of our Mainland Europe fans and drivers – this will be one great social eve of Big One night out – and then, around one hour fifteen minutes to hop across the East to Ipswich!

Since the acquisition in recent years of the Suffolk Raceway by the Spedeworth organisation you would expect nothing less than huge improvements in facilities for fans and drivers!

Since the re-introduction of BriSCA F1 to the Fenland venue in recent years by Deane. it has become hugely acclaimed, only last month, it staged a great speed weekend, and on the radar for 2023 is a WCSF. A smaller stadium that creates a fantastic and unique atmosphere if you haven’t visited before – everything is close by. Ample sized pit area to visit, covered stands and ‘close up’ action and a great shale surface.!

With up to 36 F1’s expected, over 20 from Holland, Belgium and New Zealand and a liberal sprinkling of UK non World finalists, Mildenhall will definitely live up to it’s reputation, BIG CARS, SMALL TRACK = ACTION! Mildenhall should never be missed and WF Friday with so many from across the water and the action they traditionally bring is surely worth an early Friday finish! POET’S DAY EXCUSES very much order of the day!

An action packed 12 races are planned, five for BriSCA F1’s, 4 for F2 which includes as we write no less than 8 Dutch entrants and a ‘warm up’ fun event for National Ministox!


There has been more comments for this event than any other in recent World Final history! BriSCA goes East to the superfast and sweeping contours of Foxhall for it’s premier event, only for the third time in the sports history!

Foxhall is one of the fastest ovals in UK racing, comparable with Hednesford and whilst bigger in scale, Venray in Holland, so a track that requires drivers focus on reliability and set up as much as brute force which needs to be used tactical control to ensure the right result! The form book has been long predicting ‘outside’ pole sitter Tom Harris to once again regain his title with many predicting him galloping away with others struggling to live with his exhaust fumes. However a tale of the tape may suggest differently! Outside pole is a slight disadvantage and with ‘on form’ Paul Hines alongside with an upgrade to Harrison Supplies top tech machinery, he cannot be discounted. Similarly FWJ will be on the case and suspect he will be seeking an early move and confusion in the opening laps. Add to that 10 very accomplished Mainland Europe visitors who will be well suited to the Foxhall topography and four Kiwis as part of the Overseas force who will have to acclimatise quickly to asphalt over their more usual clay racing surface, it’s a recipe for unpredictably. And, of course to win it, you must first finish! The technical aspects of Ipswich add different curiosities, tyre degradation will be a factor in the result, particularly for the faster runners if under pressure – and then, there is the X factor, the unpredictability of contact, stock car racing and the inevitable which is why bookies tend to shy away from placing odds on this unique event – far from predictable ‘Live’ and ‘driving’ to pundits extolling on social media – and as Sky say, ‘It can only be live once’ so you need to be there to be part of the unique atmosphere!

Ipswich is ‘almost’ unrivalled facilities wise with continued huge investment from Spedeworth into this once tired and iconic venue why now stands proud as a modern fit for purpose race facility! 3500 high level Grandstand seats, ample arena viewing from terraces on turns 1 & 2 – Pit access to get up close to the drivers and their machines [ but please follow the guidance for everyones safety ] – and of course, autographs and merchandise of the top men and of course ladies with our own Phoebe Wainman-Hawkins as part of a dynasty of Wainman family on the grid!

There’s also the intrigue and anticipation of the ‘opening race’ and the desperation as EVERY driver wants to be on the ultimate grid – and some useful names are in that contention! If all that is not enough, experience the atmosphere when one John Lund enters the venue, BriSCA’s most respected legend over 5 decades who grids after direct qualification from the Skegness Semi – One huge reasons to be there! Add to that, the usual and professional celebrations of Pyrotechnics and sparks from acclaimed professionals Paynes Fireworks, the scene is set for to mood set the unique atmosphere of this one night! With Over 70 F1’s booked, is this really one that can be missed ? Ipswich is a big, sweeping oval, but in this case is isn’t about size, it’s about passion and getting the hands on that trophy and Gold Roof. 36 have that desire and ‘in those 10 minutes’ absolutely anything can happen! Expect the unexpected!!!

Let us not forget the complimentary racing provided by the effervescent National Ministox – from 11 to aged 16 years, National Ministox is the elite of all Junior oval racing formulae. Fantastically prepared cars, talented, young drivers, feeding through and stars of the future. The National Championship and Gold roof their main event, 30 cars, full contact adrenalized and talented drivers – just one more reason to be there!
