World Final Weekend 2022 – Announcement
The BMB and our racing family in unison joins the nation in our sense of loss following the sad passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday 8th September
Our deepest condolences are with the Royal Family at this time. This is a sad and difficult time for the Nation and reflection.
The BMB have, as you would expect, been intensively discussing the status of this weekends BriSCA Formula One World Championship as no one is unaffected by yesterdays sad news. In reaching decisions in such unprecedented circumstances, there may be no perfect solution.
However, after intensive collaborative discussion given that many race teams, fans from different parts of the globe are already in the UK, it has been agreed that the World Final weekend commencing this evening at Mildenhall at 6pm WILL GO AHEAD and Ipswich and Northampton tomorrow and Sunday. We are acutely aware of elite sports ‘postponing’ schedules in what is an evolving situation, however with timing and circumstances, this event will be almost impossible to restage in 2022.
The events will be operated with utmost respect of Her Majesty and the operating programmes suitably reflective of the mood.
