Brafield-on-the-Green is a civil parish and small village in West Northamptonshire and is about 4 miles south-east of Northampton, along the A428 road about 16 miles north-west of Bedford.

Brafield Stadium known as Northampton International Raceway hosts BriSCA Formula 1 Stock Cars. As early as 1949, local entrepreneurs staged midget car racing at the stadium, as part of a national attempt to introduce the sport from the US. It also hosted speedway until the end of the 1967 season.
