The book was slightly delayed and on top of that the Veloce publishers are relocating to new premises before Christmas.
I am sure that the book is being distributed now or very soon. The reason Amazon have cancelled some orders because they thought they would get the copies before Christmas. But it wasn't and they decided to cancel some orders people have made.
I assure you that the book is not cancelled, it is just some minor niggles to sort out with the printing, distribution and other things. I am sure the book will be out this month.
I would suggest, keep an eye on this page of Veloce's website:
It seems that it is for sale now or very soon.

I was working in Birmingham in the 80's and remember having to make an excuse to pop out while the 'on the street' events were on. The Superprix was a really great experience for spectators and being able to pop into a local pub between races was special.

To be honest, I wasn't too sure if it would be sold at the show so I thought I would visit the Hortons bookshop stand and I was pleased to see copies of the book at the front!
I looked in Chaters and it was there as well.
DJO, I hope you will enjoy the book and revive your memories of the events there!

Hopefully you will have to write an update in the future if the event returns

I understand about the lack of complete results. It is due to the space in the book available. Although you still can find the F3000 results from the BSP on the Internet. I can recommend the Racing Database website for you. I will take notice of that.
People tend to remember the F3000 (and a little bit of BTCC) more races so that was the focus of the races in the BSP book.
I take it that you ordered it from Amazon? I wasn't expecting them to sell the book this week!
