A RECORD OF GRAND PRIX & VOITURETTE RACING VOLUME 10 (1974-1978)

£75.00

This volume (published in 1996) covers the 1974 to 1978 period. Motor racing was changing. Television was making an increasing impact on the sport and in due course the needs of the fan at the track would take second place to the needs of TV. Sponsors were coming increasingly into the sport feeding a general increase in costs and the virtual disappearance of the non-championship race as teams and drivers no longer needed a bit of extra money. Mr Ecclestone was also becoming an increasing force in the sport.

At 409 pages the book contains, for the majority of races, full statistics including entry lists with starting numbers and chassis numbers of cars. A starting grid and full results are also included together with a brief description of the race. All races run to Formula One and Two regulations, however minor, have been included.

A RECORD OF GRAND PRIX & VOITURETTE RACING VOLUME 11 (1979-1984)

£60.00
This volume (published in 1997) covers the 1979 to 1984 period. During this period the classic Cosworth DFV was edged out by the more powerful turbo charged engine from Renault, BMW, Honda, Ferrari etc. Politics became as big a headline as the races with bickering over who controlled what, but on the up-side, races were very well supported and the cars were spectacularly fast. Formula Two was also strongly supported, including Japan having its own series.
At 398 pages the book contains, for the majority of races, full statistics including entry lists with starting numbers and chassis numbers of cars. A starting grid and full results are also included together with a brief description of the race. All races run to Formula One and Two regulations, however minor, have been included

A RECORD OF GRAND PRIX & VOITURETTE RACING VOLUME 12 (1985-1989)

£60.00
This volume (published in 2001) covers the 1985 to 1989 period. During this period the Formula One regulations seemed to change on an almost annual basis as the FIA strove to deal with the combination of atmospheric and turbo-charged cars. Despite this there was certainly no lack of entrants with, for example, the opening race in 1989 having none less than 40 entrants such that pre-qualifying was often needed. Not all of these entrants were, however, potential front runners. Who remembers Rial and EuroBrun. Formula Two became Formula 3000 to make use of the widely available Cosworth DFV.
At 358 pages the book contains, for the majority of races, full statistics including entry lists with starting numbers and chassis numbers of cars. A starting grid and full results are also included together with a brief description of the race. All races run to Formula One and F3000 (International, British & Japanese) regulations have been included.

A RECORD OF GRAND PRIX & VOITURETTE RACING Volume 14 1995 – 2001

£80.00

Second edition – now available

Volume 14 continues the story of Formula 1 and F3000 from 1995 to 2001, which might be regarded as the Michael Schumacher era. F3000 was very strong, with large fields with many names who were to progress to Formula 1, but just an interestingly, many others who looked very promising but whose careers never quite fulfilled their promise.  It was during this era that F3000 started to exclusively support Formula 1 and the stand alone races at venues like Pau, Enna-Pergusa and Donington disappeared from the schedule. Variety was also lost by the introduction of a single chassis and engine specification.

This 2nd Edition does not have any races not included in the 1st Edition. Changes are limited to correction of identified errors, and additional information missing from the 1st Edition, particularly in the Italian/Euro and Japanese F3000

The book covers the following formulae

Formula 1

F3000 International

Japanese F3000/Formula Nippon

British Formula 2 (1996-97)

F3000 Italia (1999-2000)

Euro F3000 (2001)

 

As with other books in the series, full entry lists, grids and results are given. There are also chassis numbers for Formula 1.

 

Please note that there are NO photographs, race descriptions or lap charts

 

A RECORD OF GRAND PRIX & VOITURETTE RACING Volume 15 2002 – 2008

£80.00

Second Edition – now available

Volume 15 takes the story of Formula 1 and the main secondary categories from 2002 to 2008. During this period the structure of single-seater racing became much more fragmented. Whilst Formula 1 remained the pinnacle of the sport – or is it business? – F3000’s place as the proving ground for rising stars was challenged by Formula Renault 3.5. Mostly held as part of a package of Renault promoted meetings, the series became a serious rival when Robert Kubica went straight from it to Formula 1.

Rising costs in F3000 resulted in dwindling entries and in 2005 it was replace by GP2 which used standard Dallara chassis and Renault engines.  In the wake of the demise of F3000 International a number of series sprung up to make use of the available cars, most seemingly based in or from Italy. These are of course included in the book.

Compared to the 1st Edition, this 2nd Edition includes Formula Renault 3.5, for the reasons outlined above. Other changes are limited to correction of identified errors, and additional information missing from the 1st Edition especially in the various F3000 series that appeared after the International series folded

The book covers the following formulae

Formula 1

F3000 International (2002-04)

GP2 (2005-08)

GP2 Asia (2008)

Formula Nippon

Euro F3000 (2002-04)

Formula Renault 3.5 (2005-08)

Formula 3000 Italia (2005)

3000 Pro series (2005)

Euroseries 3000 (2006-08)

F3000 Int. Masters (2006)

 

As with other books in the series, full entry lists, grids and results are given. There are also chassis numbers for F1 and some F3000 series.

 

Please note that there are NO photographs, race descriptions or lap charts

 

A RECORD OF GRAND PRIX & VOITURETTE RACING Volume 16 2009 – 2011

£80.00

The Formula One Register has produced a new volume in its well-respected history of major single-seater racing, extending the period covered to 2009-2011.

Having decided to suspend the production of Yearbooks, we have looked afresh at the categories included in this volume of “A Record of Grand Prix and Voiturette Racing”. As we have previously observed, the old F1 – F2 – F3 structure of motor racing was eroded during the 21st century by the introduction of several competing classes, such as the Renault backed Formula Renault 3.5 which was a direct competitor to GP2, along with various series using old F3000 cars.

With motor racing more global than ever, it seems wrong to exclude a category simply because it did not run in Europe. Nor is it possible to distinguish what to include on the basis of a formula being the step below Formula 1 when drivers like Räikkönen were plucked straight from Formula Renault.

This volume (360 pages) therefore covers what we might for convenience call “big-engine” formulae (taking into account turbo charging) that are broadly equivalent to being the tier below Formula 1.

  • F1, Indycar, GP2, F3000, Formula Nippon, Formula Renault 3.5, Superleague, A1GP, F2, Auto GP

The next tier, principally Formula 3, is available separately as a “small-engine” supplement. This book costs £60 plus postage if ordered alone – but save £20 when ordering with Volume 16 using this link.

A RECORD OF GRAND PRIX & VOITURETTE RACING VOLUME 2 (1926 – 1931) – 2nd Edition

£80.00

In this new edition we have expanded the range of races covered to include over 60 additional events not in the first edition, generally of a more minor status, such as the racing car classes at Circuit de l’Aisne, races at Sitges-Terramar, Circuit des Route Pavée and Bol d’Or. It has now grown to over 450 pages. New sources have also enabled many previously incomplete entry lists to be filled out. There are also Appendices covering major handicap races and Les Grand Prix Bugatti events.

Sometimes rather dismissed as a low period in racing history, this is only the case if one focuses solely on Grand Prix racing. In reality it was the start of the great renaissance that would reach its full flower in the superb racing of the late thirties. With drivers like Varzi, Nuvolari, Chiron and the like becoming the new force in racing, truly International motor racing as it was to be for the next 50 years had arrived. The back-bone of racing was the private entrant and the specialist manufacturer like Bugatti and Maserati. At the start of this period Cyclecar (1100cc) racing was also very well supported although this faded towards the end.

As usual, for the majority of races, the book contains full statistics including entry lists often with starting numbers and chassis numbers where known. Full results are also included.  All races run to the Grand Prix Formula, Formule Libre, Voiturette and Cyclecar classes have been included.

A RECORD OF GRAND PRIX & VOITURETTE RACING VOLUME 8 (1965-1969)

£75.00

This volume (published in 1994) covers the 1965 to 1969 period. 1965 was the final season of the 1.5 litre formula, which was replaced by a 3000cc limit. The slogan for the new formula was “the return to power”. It was a good slogan and Grand Prix racing was in for some good times. Formula Two was also very strong with Grand Prix drivers regularly

taking part. Anyone could buy a Brabham or a Tecno or whatever, and have a real chance of beating Rindt or Stewart.

In Formula Two the top drivers were disqualified from competing in the main championship and the days when such drivers would be found in anything other than a Grand Prix were gone forever. The number of non-championship Formula One races was also in rapid decline.

At 404 pages the book contains, for the majority of races, full statistics including entry lists with starting numbers and chassis numbers of cars. A starting grid and full results are also included together with a brief description of the race. All races run to Formula One and Two regulations, however minor, have been included

A RECORD OF MOTOR RACING AT CRYSTAL PALACE by Richard Page

£200.00
Rated 5.00 out of 5
Crystal Palace holds an important place in the heritage of motor sport in Britain. Today few remember that it was the scene of some of the first competitions for pioneering motorists. In 1937 a permanent road course was constructed. Its urban setting and railway-sleeper lined track provided spectators and drivers with the closest experience available to continental style street racing. Closing in 1972, the circuit operated in what many feel to have been the “golden era” of motor racing. Amongst many other things it witnessed the dramatic arrival of Austrian future world champion Jochen Rindt on the international motor racing scene.
