The Superstox formula is Spedeworth's oldest. In fact it was this formula that Spedeworth was founded upon over 40 years ago. Like the organisation itself the cars have come a long way, although the very essence of the class remains.
The Superstox car is a very fast, 2 litre Ford, purpose-built, single seater with full contact allowed, just to keep things interesting and to prevent any dawdling! Like most of the other oval track formulae, the fastest cars on the grid start at the back, so those bumpers are rarely out of action.
Whilst contact is allowed, the formula is not banger racing of any sort so a high degree of dexterity is required by the driver intent on winning, without a big accident occurring, which occurs occasionally, of course!
The first World Championship was held at Ipswich (Foxhall Heath Stadium) in 1961, although the formula in those days was known as F2. That race was won by Jan Scott with the 50th Anniversary race won by Nick Smith in 2011.
This is always a formula worth watching!
