Hello.

This is my first post on this forum although I have been reading it for years and I have now decided - having exhausted all my available options - to ask the knowledgeable Motorsport fans on here for help in finding out the results of every race of the 1998 British and European Formula Ford Championships. I need them for a comprehensive statistical research project I am doing on Jenson Button and they have so far proved elusive. I know of certain results but it is difficult to find the names of the lesser known drivers who raced with him and joined him on the podium or in the kitty litter. So if anyone has any information about the calenders, (I can't even find a complete calender!), the results of each race, the drivers and teams, or knows where I can find that information, I would be grateful to hear from you. I hope someone can help me.
