HISTORIC FORMULA JUNIOR & 500cc FORMULA 3

This series of books covers Formula Junior, 1.0 litre Formula 3 and 500cc Formula 3 as historic racing categories in Europe between 2000 and 2007. From 2008 the series also covers worldwide events.

It is 50 years ago that Count Johnny Lurani’s imaginative notion of a new starter formula, based on production 1000cc or 1100cc car engines, saw the light of day at Monza in 1958. The idea worked and soon races were being held across the globe. In 1964 it was replaced by a new but similar 1.0 litre Formula 3. Formula Junior was reintroduced as a historic class in 1975. Although there have been ups and downs, the growth of Formula Junior has been remarkable. By 2007 average grids in UK and Lurani Trophy races were 34 with the “prestige” events such as Goodwood invariably oversubscribed.

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, and is a valuable companion to our set of top-tier Indycar-style books. 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.

Monoposto Formula

£80.00
Rated 5.00 out of 5

The Formula One Register has documented the history of the British Monoposto formula from 1958 to 1976.

Originally conceived to encourage the construction, by enthusiasts of limited means, of single-seater racing cars, it struggled to establish a place against competition from Formula Junior until, in the mid-60s it adapted to include a mix of “home-built” and older production chassis. Of course, as the years progressed Formula Junior chassis became eligible, and later still Formula 3 cars. On the engine front, for many years there were two classes – 1000cc and 1500cc until the former was scrapped for 1974. The ready availability of cheap cars and cost control of engines saw the formula blossom from the mid-60s onwards, with large grids and good racing, with many successful “one-offs” such as Jim Yardley’s Beagle, Alan Baillie’s Viking and the Anco of Brian Toft.

The format of this book is the same as previous Formula One Register publications. Each race covered has an entry list, chassis numbers, grid positions, full results with race times and competitors’ fastest laps and a race report. However, in a departure from our normal style, a section has been added to describe – and illustrate with photographs – over 50 of the most important or interesting one-off cars, many of which were more than capable of giving the professionally produced marques a good run for their money.

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.
