A RECORD OF GRAND PRIX & VOITURETTE RACING in 16 Volumes

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.

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 running at 373 pages

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 and retail at £75 + £4.50 P&P (UK)

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