2011 -



So the questions are:

- In which category did he raced in 1987 (I think his first year in cars), and in which team?
- Which car did he race in F3, by Dragon and WSR?
- I think Fuji F3 GP and the Cellnet Superprix are races like the Marlboro Masters at Zandvoort, can you confirm?
- In which team did he raced at Porsche Supercup in 1993?
- Do you know the reasons of his retirements at Brazil and France in 2001?
- Are there a website with more complete results of the DTM?


I would like to thank Darren Galpin for the model of the Database, that I am following, and everyone here for all the infos I usually find. I also hope that more people become interested in this project.

Most of these answers are on Google, and certainly on Forix - http://forix.autospo...&...amp;s=0&b=0

1) Formula Ford 1600, Swedish, Finnish and Nordic Series

5) Brazil - engine; France - car wouldn't start due to electrics/transmission/engine

6) www.FORIX.com - most of your answers will come from there as it's a database, which is really what you're after but not all of us here are. You can have it in any language, and it's run by a Spaniard and Portuguese.

Thanks! The main problem of Forix is that it's paid!

Is that really a problem? If you cost your time needlessly repeating research that has already been done, you may find it makes sense to subscribe.

That's the crisis, what we see is the disapperance of the money; although you are completely right.

- Which car did he race in F3, by Dragon and WSR?

He was F3 champion in 1990 for WSR, using a Ralt Mugen-Honda RT34. In 1989 with Dragon he had a Ralt-Volkswagen, presumably a RT33.

Hakkinen drove a Toyota powered Reynard 893 for Dragon in 1989 :)

He drove for WSR at the Cellent Superprix in 1989, that must have been the Ralt

Yes, I've discovered that already. What it's left to search is the Porsche Supercup, the DTM results, and more details about 1987

I haven't any URL. I have all this files in Word in my PC. I would like to host this in any page, but it's needed much more knowledge on informatics

Why not contact Darren Galpin and offer to contribute content to his database. I'm sure he would welcome the help.

I've offered! We have talked and I send it to him, the only difference is the organization method, but usually Darren takes my contributions.

Hakkinen's two races in the Porsche Supercup in 1993 were in the guest car. This was officially entered under the team name of "Porsche AG" but I do not know which organisation actually ran the car.

I know, but it hasn't grid standings and retirements' reasons.
