I wonder if anyone can help me with results for Thoroughbred Grand Prix races. The results for 1999 onwards are covered on the official TGP site, but there is nothing for the 1995, 1996, 1997 and 1998 seasons.

I have drawn a blank with web search engines, so if anyone could either inform me of a site carrying the results, post the results or E-mail them to me I would be very grateful.

I also have a question relating to TGP and BRM.

I seem to remember seeing a picture of a BRM P180 that was captioned 'Zandvoort Thoroughbred Grand Prix', but like an idiot I have forgotten the URL. Did the P180 actually race in TGP? If so does anyone know who was driving and what has happened to it since then?

Thanks

Rob

On this page, you will find some results (incomplete) from the 1995 TGP sesaon onwards:

http://www.cmail.cz/inneman/tgp.htm

As for the BRM, I assume you're referring to this page:

http://www.ritzsite....70s/1970_73.htm

I think the P180 you have in mind is 02, raced in 1993 and 1994 by John Beasley and 1998/99 by Peter Hannen. Last I heard (a couple of months ago) it was for sale (I can track it down further if you wish)
As far as I know the other P180, 01, remains part of the Donington Collection

Thanks for the INNEMAN site, I'll check it out. The picture on the Ritz site was the one I remember, and reading the caption correctly it says the P180 did NOT take part in the Thoroughbred race. That is what memory does for you!

David
Any further information on the P180 would be most welcome as the BRM team and their cars are of great interest to me. The P180 is for sale? If I only had the money!!

Sorry for being lazy, but what is the URL for the official TGP site? I saw the TGP race at Donnington in 1999, and it was fantastic.

I think I also read in Autosport a few weeks ago, that they were thinking of having the Silverstone race after the BGP, which is great, because I've just got my BGP tickets.

As for my home town team, there's a fairly new BRM website at http://members.madas...gkinson/brm.htm and on the links page, there is a link to Hall & Fowlers, which would be a good place to start, if you had a spare £100,000 and wanted to buy a BRM.

Perhaps we could swap a few results sheets. From the ones you mention I have the following official sheets:

1995 Donington Park (1) - Entry list only
1995 Nurburgring - Combined practice times and results
1995 Brands Hatch - Everything
1995 Donington Park (2) - Everything

1996 Donington Park (1) - Nothing
1996 Magny-Cours - Results only
1996 Anderstorp - Nothing
1996 Nurburgring - Nothing
1996 Donington Park (2) - Everything except grid positions

1997 Donington Park - Entry list and practice times
1997 Nurburgring - Nothing

I have also been trying to get hold of all the results for the 'non-championship' races over this period (Thruxton 17 April 1995, Magny Cours 04 June 1995, Zandvoort 20 August 1995, Dijon 24 September 1995, Jyllandsring 15 June 1997 and Kyalami 6 December 1998) and the pre-95 HSCC Historic F1 races (which go back to 1982). Do you have anything on those races?

How would you like to go about this? I could start scanning things but a bundle of photocopies might be more straightforward.

Matt

The races are not televised here in the U.K., and I don't think anywhere else in the world.

The races do not even get good coverage in the motor sport press. 'Autosport' generally list only the first three finishers and is lucky if it gives two paragraphs to the race report! I cannot understand this because it is a full FIA championship and should get better coverage!

As an aside, I attended my first two TGP meetings last year and I am sorry that it took me so long to recognise this series. I had forgotten how good a grid full of Cossies can sound. Now if only someone would bring a couple Matra MS120's, two Ferrari 312/B1's and a few BRM P160's out retirement these races would be paradise.

I went to the first BTCC meeting last season just to see the TGP race.

Well worth it.

Hi Rob

I got your email and my offer of photocopied sheets still stands (of course!) but I'm suffering from a project build-up at the moment so you'll have to be patient with me. I did a monster Can-Am update to my site (just the 11 seasons) and have run out of energy half way through checking it all. So I decided to do the British Sprint Championship for light relief (just the first 21 seasons :drunk: ) and have just got that onto my site only to hit the same "checking is boring" problem.

And I have to do a stack of Atlantic updates for Chris. And then publish some long-outstanding USAC pages. Then ... TGP.

When I was at Donington last September, the blurb in front of P180/01 stated it was the car that had won the 1972 Monaco GP.

This did get pointed out and I've since wondered if it has been fixed.

Along with them giving the designer of the Tyrrells a capital 'G' for his surname and that the M21 McLaren was designed for the new 2-litre F2 , and didn't have a 1600cc engine.

Pedantic is the word I believe..

Easy mistake to make that, confusing a May day in Monaco with Brands Hatch in October. That and the fact that P180/02 was the only race winner out of the two built... :rolleyes:

Reminds me of my last visit there, in June '03. (I too spotted a few errors on the display captions. ) The place was pretty empty, and I was slowly moving around among my favourites, when I became aware that a small group was catching me up, with one of them declaiming loudly to the others about the exhibits. As they got closer I realised that the declaimer was none other than Tom Wheatcroft himself, showing his collection to some Americans. I followed them round at a discreet distance to hear what Tom had to say about his cars, but soon had to give up and move on. I was so, so tempted to interrupt and embarrass everyone by telling Tom that the bullshit he was coming out with was a very long way from the truth as I knew it.

Yes, I've watched for the past two seasons on MotorsTV. Reasonable coverage considering the programs are only 30 minutes :up:, pity about the commentator :down: .
The 2004 season review is televised this week..

I LOVE the interviews with 'Fast Fredy K' :drunk:

Wel, this was what I was looking for in the past few weeks... Interesting, nice to find out about TGP / HFO.

Unfortunately, most of the links don't work any more. Are there still results placed on the web? Anyone who knows? Hard to find, for the Czech site innemann seems not to be working any more...

All I could really find was the HFO-site of the FIA, but that doesn't list the results before 2009...

Thanks again,

Erwin.

Hi Erwin

What started out as The Thoroughbred Grand Prix series received FIA recognition to become the Historic Formula One Championship and is sanctioned by the FIA meaning that the drivers and teams are part of the annual prize awards in Monaco at the end of the season. The organisers and participants take you back to the glory days of F1 and represent what is without doubt the best era of F1 (late 60s to early 80s). The people involved with the HFO are all very nice people and the atmosphere at the meetings is not to be missed. Visiting all the classic circuits like Hockenheim, Brands Hatch, Spa, Jarama, Monza, Paul Ricard, Estoril, Silverstone, Hungaroring, Zandvoort, Nurburgring and more. The cars are very well turned out and look fabulous in the colours of Ragno, Marlboro, Samson, Gitanes, Kelemata and cars from Ensign, Ligier, Tyrrell, Shadow, Theodore, Arrows and the top teams like Brabham, Mclaren, Ferrari & Lotus. Have a look at the website at www.historicformulaone.com and enjoy......KM

Pink Snail,

Thanks for the info. I already discovered the HFO official site. It is really very interesting and it exposes the cars from the best era, according to me. I sure will visit one of the races next year!

Thanks again :)

I can recomend the Historic Superprix at Brands Hatch on the first weekend of July - awesome with the HFO, F5000(many from Australia & New Zealand!!), Classic Saloons and F2 cars and lots more. A fantastic campsite 5 minutes drive from the circuit and a great atmosphere all weekend - easy to get to from the `European` side of the Channel aswell!

Have you tried contacting Oliver McCrudden at HFO for your missing results.

Recently reading through some 1996 editions of Motor Sport magerzine and they ran articles on the TGP races and IIRC Anderstorp was included, not the full result just the top 6 and a few paragraphes on the events of the race.

Have you tried contacting Oliver McCrudden at HFO for your missing results.

Recently reading through some 1996 editions of Motor Sport magerzine and they ran articles on the TGP races and IIRC Anderstorp was included, not the full result just the top 6 and a few paragraphes on the events of the race.

Thanks Andy, but I contacted Oliver a number of years ago.
The original TGP organisation did not keep any records or results, so I sent him a copy of mine :lol:

Thanks again...

Try Fred Champlon at FIA in Geneva, they have all the results because they made the championship up for the website.He must have them.

Yes, but it has only been an FIA Championship for the past 2 or 3 years.

Nearer to ten years-in fact as TGP it has always been an FIA Championship.
The races run by the HSCC were not.

Having now spoken to Steve Lydon he tells me the FIA TGP championship started in 1994

... following pressure, as I recall it, from the aforementioned FIA, who would not permit any series to have the words "Grand Prix" in its title unless it was an FIA championship

Well you learn something every day :eek:

I don't remember the FIA being metioned with respect to 'Thoroughbred Grand Prix'.
I assumed that it became an FIA Championship when it change name to 'FIA Historic Formula One' (HFO)

Some of the shirts and caps I have relating to the TGP do indeed have the FIA crest included in the embroidery work. I think the FIA have actually endorsed the TGP/HFO since its inception but only since if became the HFO have they sanctioned the series as a bona fide Championship. The champions are recognised at the annual FIA awards in Monaco at the end of season dinner/presentation. I could be wrong and sometimes I am - so shoot me down if you need to!!! What still stands out for me is that the guys driving the cars still `race` them as opposed to show them off and the cars are well presented every time they go out on track.

In my opinion, it was always a FIA championship.

From the italian magazine Autosprint (1995):

I think Pink Snail is right. It became a proper championship in 1994, having been the HSCC's "Historic F1" series up to that point but I don't think it became a full FIA championship until recently when it changed its name to HFO. I don't know what the exact distinction is.
