BS Fabrications was an engineering company specialising in fabrications for Formula One teams founded by Bob Sparshott, a former engineer at Lotus who had worked with Jim Clark and Graham Hill, and John 'Ace' Woodington in Luton in 1972. The company also ran a number of private F1 cars for customers in Grand Prix racing between 1972 and 1978.
They first entered F1 in 1972 under the name of Space Racing when they built a hybrid F1/F2 March for Mike Beuttler using a Formula 2 monocoque with a F1 engine. They returned under the B&S Fabrications name in 1976, with a Surtees for Henri Pescarolo, then ran a March and a McLaren for Brett Lunger in 1977 and then a pair of McLarens for Lunger and Nelson Piquet in 1978.
In 1980, the factory was involved in the building of the Toleman TG280.
Sparshott still operates an engineering company associated with motorsport.
