I am looking for results of Australian Road racing results before 1964 and especially Formula Libre.
A kind of pre Tasman racing
This is what I have from various sources (Le Corse Gran Premio by Monkhouse/King Farlow and a former thread on this forum)

The results are in the book "The official 50-race history of the Australian Grand Prix)

A bunch of your race distances are out of whack...

Hordern Trophy races were 34 laps of 2.25 miles, for instance. Longford in 1962 at 90 miles doesn't seem right to me, the Lakeside 99 of 1962 wasn't (to my recollection) stopped at half distance.
