More than 20 years have passed since Paul Sheldon first published his definitive record of the history of grand prix and secondary classes of motor racing in the “Record of Grand Prix & Voiturette Racing” series. These – often referred to as the ‘black books’ revealed a level of detail and, indeed, races, previously largely unknown to British readers. Still today they remain one of the most authoritative sources of data and in more recent times the Formula One Register has embarked on a programme of updating with second editions of these well respected works.
The books aim to include a full entry list including race numbers and the chassis numbers of competing cars plus a grid and full results. Up to Volume 12 a description of the race and, where available, a lap chart for Formula 1 races is included.
The 2nd Editions contain a wealth of new information including even some previously unknown races. Chassis numbers have been revised and corrected often where, starting with the information in the first edition, researchers have clarified the situation with, for instance, Maserati, Connaught A type and early Coopers. All chassis changes are listed in an Appendix.

Latest Titles





FORMULA 3 500cc & 1000cc

VOLUME 11 (2017)


The next volume in the Formula One Register series documenting Historic Formula Junior and Formula 3 500cc and 1000cc racing is now available. It has been decided to cover a single year in this volume as the high number of races for the Diamond Jubilee World Tour, including New Zealand and the USA, has increased the number of events.

The format is the same as previous volumes – All Formula Junior races WORLD-WIDE are included. Also included are 1.0 litre and 500cc Formula 3 races.

Each race is covered with entry list, chassis numbers, grid positions, full results with race times and competitors’ fastest laps and for all World Tour races and most European races there is a race report. Participation in multi-class races in Australia, New Zealand and the USA are included in a more summarised form, where known.


Published as a Limited Edition of 65 copies, the book runs to over 250 pages, hard bound to match the earlier volumes, numbered and signed.


Indy Lights Results


This record covers all eras of the Indy Lights series starting in 1986, running up to the present. We believe that this is a unique record of an important class of racing that is not available anywhere else as a single source of reference. Customers should be aware that it is a copy of our records, as they stand at the time of printing, rather than a book with fixed content. Therefore corrections and additions are very welcome.

The format is our usual one – each race is covered with entry list, grid positions, full results with race times and fully indexed. Please note that there are no race descriptions or photographs.

It is 350 pages and is supplied hard-bound in black covers in the general style of our other publications, but customers should be aware that as these are printed for each order, the standard of production may be a little below professionally printed standards. Also, because of the need to format and print the records it may take longer than normal to dispatch the order.

Formula 4 Results Two Seasons Combined


In March 2013 the FIA announced the creation of Formula 4 as a stepping stone between karting and F3 for young drivers. It soon became clear that Formula 4 was going to hasten the demise of the few remaining national F3 championships. Although the Formula One Register has not previously covered “fourth-tier” classes, now that there is a FIA recognised structure which, as mentioned, seems to be standing in the place of National Formula 3, we have decided to keep records of Formula 4 results.

We are now able to make these records available on a print-to-order basis.
