Birmingham Superprix, 27th August 1990

The Halfords Birmingham Superprix was a motor racing meeting held on a street circuit at the heart of Birmingham, England, from 1986 to 1990. The principal event was a round of the FIA Formula 3000 Championship, but support races included BTCC and Formula Ford 1600 rounds, as well as sports car racing.
The 1990 race would prove to be the last staging of the event. The F3000 race was won by Eric van de Poele, with polesitter Marco Apicella retiring from the race. Only 11 of the 30 entrants finishing the race. The BTCC race was won by Andy Rouse, whilst Kurt Luby won Class B. As in the F3000 race, the polesitter retired - in this case it was Robb Gravett, who experienced an engine failure after 10 laps.
