The sprint course at Curborough was formerly a small part of RAF Lichfield. Construction of the airfield began in 1939. On completion, 51 Maintenance Unit took up residence on 1st August 1940. After the War, a local farmer purchased the site from the Air Ministry, S&D.C.C. with a dream to create a sprint course, but lots of work was required to bring it up to standard.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of an army of enthusiasts, the inaugural sprint meeting took place on 16th June 1963. Ian McLaughlin driving a Cooper Jap in 38.7 secs recorded fastest time of the day.
Today Curborough Sprint Course is Britain's premier motorsport venue for speed sprinting against the clock. It has also been awarded the accolade of being a cycling centre of excellence, and features in the Guinness Book of Records when the pedal car racers set a new 1000 mile record in 2002! All types of cars, from saloons to single seaters, compete here at regular events.
