The FORMULA ONE REGISTER is dedicated to the collection, preservation and publication of data on single-seater motor racing.

Our books strive to be a complete record of the formula or era covered, based on exhaustive archives and research:

  • every race run to the formula, not just championship rounds
  • full results and retirements
  • entry lists including non-starters
  • grids
  • chassis numbers (where known)

Our Customers include authors, owners, museums and serious researchers in to motor racing history. The books provide a convenient resource that saves time and effort when researching.

Customers should note that we generally do not include photographs as we feel there are many other books that cover this aspect.

In addition to our books, we keep extensive records of other formulae such as Formula Junior & Formula 3. Copies of our records are available – see the Print to Order section

We are always pleased to receive additions and corrections.

A RECORD OF THE BRITISH HILL CLIMB CHAMPIONSHIP VOLUME 2 2001-2018

£75.00

by Formula One Register with Jerry Sturman

The Formula One Register/St Leonards Press is pleased to announce two new books covering the British Hillclimb Championship from its start in 1947 to 2018.

This is Volume 2 covering 2001-2018

Over this 72 year period the championship has evolved through eras dominated by the Cooper-JAP V-twin in the 1950s, then ex-Formula 1, F5000, F2, FJ chassis and even 4-wheel-drive cars which held sway in the 1960s and 70s before specialist machinery such as Pilbeam, Gould and OMS took over. Similarly, the leading drivers have included names who made their mark elsewhere such as ERA and BRM founder Raymond Mays and legendary all-rounders Ken Wharton and Tony Marsh. More recently, the rather specialised nature of the sport has bred its own particular heroes such as Roy Lane, Martin Groves, Trevor Willis and Scott Moran.

As with other Formula One Register titles, the emphasis is on providing the most comprehensive possible record of every round. For virtually all events, full results are given together with chassis numbers for the majority of cars. A similar record was published by us in 1995, which has been expanded to include chassis numbers as well as some previously missing information and, following extensive research into the various scoring systems used, revised points tables. In conjunction with Volume 1, such a wealth of detail has never before been published.

Each of the two volumes is hard bound. Volume 2 is 373 pages and retails at £75 + £4.50 P&P (UK) or £125 + £7.50 (UK) if ordered together with Volume 1 (use coupon code HCBOTH at checkout)

It may be possible to arrange for books to be collected at events by prior arrangement.

South African Formula 1 Championship 1960 – 1975

£60.00

In 1999 the Formula One Register published Peter MacIntosh and Paul Sheldon’s book “A Record of South African Formula 1 Racing”. This provided a magnificent source of hard-to-find entries, grids and results but was less robust on car identities. Over the ensuing 20 years much effort has been put into the latter and an updated version is now available.

Please note that these races have already been incorporated in the 2nd Editions of the “A Record of Grand Prix and Voiturette Racing” series so this book is only likely to be of interest to those relying on the first editions.

The format of this book is the same as previous Formula One Register publications. Each race covered has an entry list including most chassis numbers, a short race report, grid positions, full results with race times as far as it has been possible to ascertain them. However, it must be noted that there are no photographs.

A copy of this record is available on a print-to-order basis. The book runs to over 250 pages and is delivered hard bound. It retails at £60 + £4.50 post & packing in the UK. Rest of Europe P&P £16.60 and USA £23. Please contact us for a quote for other countries.
