Sunday 5th June, Newton Abbot, British Championship

The meeting was promoted by Autospeed with the Midgets billed as 'Speedcars'. This will undoubtedly cause much confusion over the years because Speedcars was the name given to Hednesford's Super Rod formula which was launched at about the same time. Alf Boarer lost a finger at this meeting.

Keith Fransella won the opening 15 lap race in a time of 3 minutes 19.3 seconds - quicker than both the existing F2 Stox and Hot Rod records held by Colin Higman (3m5 Is) and Spence Morgan (4m10.7s) respectively.
