To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the MG Midget, FISC made racing history by assembling the world’s largest ever grid of racing Midgets & Sprites at Spa. Drivers coming from as far as Sweden and Italy. In all, 56 beautifully prepared cars were presented, from Frogeyes to the super-modified Midgets.

In perfect conditions Paul Sibley (UK) took pole with a staggering time of 2.59.050 min in the super-modified class with Ian Hulett (UK) setting fastest lap in the road going spec.

The race on Saturday saw the super-modified cars start behind the road-going cars. Hulett led from the start from Antonio Bertini (I) with battles being fought throughout the grid, with Sibley leading the super-modified class. Bertini finally taking the win from Hulett by 0.546 sec with the charging Sibley a further 6 seconds behind.
