Hi everyone,
I'm trying to compile complete results for British F3 seasons 1991-98.
So far, the only site I've been able to find that comes anywhere close to providing this information is Darren Galpin's Motorsport Almanac.
However, in the results for 1993 (found at http://www.dlg.speed...3/1993.html#gb), both Chris Clark and Derek Watts are recorded as having finished 5th in the National Class at Round 6. :confused:
Both of their points totals add up, as do those for all the other National Class drivers except for Horner, who seems to have been given an erroneous 2nd place.
Autocourse also confirms all the points totals given on the web page.
Can anybody solve this mystery by telling me who really finished 5th?
Any other info such as results, car numbers, contested rounds etc. for '93 or any of the other seasons is greatly appreciated.
Thanks very much! :D

Clark finshed 5th in Round 6 at Silverstone. Watts didn't score at Silverstone but finished 5th in Round 7 at Oulton Park.

There's a similar problem with 1995: Oliver Gavin and Steven Arnold are both down as having finished 12th in Round 6 (http://www.dlg.speed.../1995/1995.html)
Any answers to this one? :confused:

According to the Autosport report of Round 6 Steve Arnold finished 12th and Oliver Gavin 13th.

Was someone subsequently disqualified, elevating Gavin to 12th?

Cristiano da Matta was disqualified after finishing 7th and that elevated Arnold and Gavin from 13th & 14th to 12th & 13th.

The original question was asked because the Autosport season review results table shows both drivers finishing in 12th place which obviously couldn't happen - unless there was a tie, which didn't occur.
