We are very saddened to hear of the sudden death of Paul Sheldon who was one of the founders of Formula One Register, and author of most the “black books”. He made an enormous contribution to researching and documenting motor racing history. Our condolences to his wife Betty

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.
