I am planing a Patrick Depailler memorial homepage. But I am looking for statistics especially from his F3, F2 and sportscar races. Maybe somebody can provide also some sheets from his motorcycle races (1962-1966), when he was with Norton and Benelli.

Who can help me?

I believe that you are probably the same person who sent me teh e-mail this week. I downloaded it at home last night, and I am compiling the sportscar results. 1967-1969 are complete, and I'll do the rest over the weekend and I'll post the results Monday.

He also drove in Can-Am for the Freeman-Newman team. At the very least he drove once at Riverside (15 Oct 1978 - retired) but I seem to remember him driving something else as well. I'll check when I get home.

He also drove a F5000 car a few years earlier - can't remember that either but I'll check for you.

You can pick up all his F1 results (including non-championship races) here but I'm sure you already have that.

Thanks for the help! But Darren, I wasn't in touch with you earlier concerning the Depailler statistics... It was a friend of me called Marius... As you see there are some Depailler fans arround.

OK - I was wrong. He never ran in F5000. Funny, I have a distinct memory of him in an Eagle in 1974 but I can find nothing in the results.

Also, that was his only Single-Seat Can-Am appearance.

Perhaps you were thinking of Patrick Tombay, instead ?

I'm quite sure that the only french driver in F5000 in 1974 was René Arnoux. But it was in Europe, and on Kitchener's mcLaren. The deal didn't last long as the car was unreliable and slow.


Tyrellp34,

Did you find anything on Depailler's motorcycle career. I've always wanted to know about his achievements on two wheels. I know he never scored an FIM World Championship point (unlike Beltoise, Brambilla and many others), but do you know if entered some WC races (maybe a french GP at Charade) ?
My father was into the "deltaplane" (not sure the word exists in english) scene in the late 70s-early 80s. I remember him telling me that Depailler had been in a few official races (national championships or something). Do you have any info on that ? If not do you want me to try and find more about it ?

FEV;

Patrick Depailler starts in 1962 with national motorcycle races in France. In 1963 at the “cup de Paris” at Monthlery he and Jean Pierre Beltoise met each other for the first time. During that season Depailler was unbeatable and recently won the 50cc national championship that year.
In 1964 Beltoise had his big crash at Reims and had a rest for some weeks or month. During his time of restoring he lend his Bultaco to Patrick for some races. Patrick has had a fine victory at Cognac with the Beltoise Bultaco.
In 1966 he was again national French champion into the 250cc class with Norton.
After that he was to busy concentrating in Automobil sport, but he was 2nd also in 1966 after Cevert at the “Volant Shell award”.
Evan as a F1 driver he never lost his love to huge overpowered motorcycles. In the late 70ies he bought the 6 Cylinder Benelli which becomes one of his favourite toys.

In a 1974 Eagle? Thanks for giving me an excuse but I'm afraid I'm just losing it.

IIRC James Hunt drove the Eagle at Laguna Seca in 1974, but how could you possibly confuse him with Patrick Depailler! :D :eek: :drunk: :p

TyrrellP34 - I have access to a list of WSC and F2 results. I'm looking for the F3 results myself, as I know of someone else who is also compiling the career of Patrick Depailler. Do you still want the WSC and F2 info, and do you have any of the F3 info?

Cheers,

Darren

I've finally figured out what the shatterered remnants of my memory were clinging to. It was an Elfin F5000, not an Eagle. In Australia, not the US. In 1980, not 1974. And it wasn't even Patrick Depailler, it was Didier Pironi.

Does that take the record for the most completely wrong anyone has yet been on TNF?

And does it finally convince me to stop trying to answer questions when I'm at work and don't have access to my books and notes? Well, I sure hope so - I can't take this sort of embarrasment very often!

At least it wasn't beach buggy racing! :lol:

I'm nearly sure Patrick also drove in Formula Atlantic, especially at 3 Rivières, as this event was twin with Pau (where Gilles Villeneuve made his F2 debut in Europa). I will check it...

Yes I'm right. In 1977 Gilles Villeneuve took the pole ahead of Patrick, Cobb, Rosberg (Chevron Opert), Laffite and Holmes.

Cobb (March) won the race ahead of Holmes (March), Depailler (Chevron entered by Fred Opert), Gilles Villeneuve, Hill (March) and Laffite (Chevron Opert).

GP de Trois-Rivières 1974 Formule B:
1- T. Klauser, Lola T360
2- Jean-Pierre Jaussaud, Chevron B27, + 3/10"
3- Patrick Depailler, March 742
4- J. King, Chevron B27
5- B. Jensen, March 742

FL- Patrick Depailler, March 742, 1'06"75 (131.64 km/h)
PP- Patrick Depailler, March 742

DNF (amongst others)
Tom Pryce
George Follmer

Patrick was on the lead when he was blackflagged as a wing of his March was dangerously threatening to fly away. He lost one lap...

I regret, but just having his F3 results from the Alpine book which is in the own of my brother. Into a French magazine is a picture which shows him into a CANAM race at Mosport 1978.
Getting F2 results is easy! Just watch
