He's not there as he never drove in a world championship GP, that's why. In future, he will be included in the Indy 500 NQ'S list but that won't be for a while.

Hi, Ritchie. Here are Varzi's victories from www.ddavid.com:
1929 Monza
1930 Targa Florio
1930 Coppa Acerbo
1930 Monza
1930 Spain
1931 Tunis
1932 Tunis
1933 Monaco
1933 Avusrennen
1933 Tripoli
1934 Mille Miglia
1934 Targa Florio
1934 Tripoli
1935 Coppa Acerbo
1935 Tunis
1936 Tripoli

I always thought that Monaco and Tripoli were the pre-war equivalent of the World Championship.

European Championship was pre war equivalent of post war world champiionship.ran 1935-39 and included Monaco but not Tripoli.

I won't be doing a pre-war GP WATN, simply as people like Hans & Lief here have already got most of the information - I can't add anything more.
However, some greats like Carraciola, Nuvolari & Varzi do appear as entrants for the Indy 500 & in the winter, when I have the full & proper time to do it, they'll be added on.
The theory is:
1) Indy 500 1911-WW2 & remaining non-qualifiers
2) F2 drivers
3) ??? Open to possibilities here....

However, the above will take some time for me to collate :

Just a query about Bob Gregg (Indy 500 non-qualifier from 1950) - I have found a piece on the Oregon Midget Racing Assocaiation website by John Gregg, whom I assume to be a relative. He states that Gregg was born in Minneapolis and moved around a bit before arriving in Camas WA at the age of 15. You will also note that the date of death is slightly different.

The piece can be found here http://www.autohobbies.com/oregon

Just thought you might like to check it out and decide how reliable it is and maybe adjust the entry in WATN if you're happy with it! Meanwhile, keep up the fantastic work! :)

Very much appreciated re. Sherman, too I may now find his birthdate with the extra clues given :clap:

I've tracked down Mark Albon amongst other titbits but work & friend's & family illness is restricting my time at the moment - a new update is in the offing. :blush:

Just two small facts that (IMHO) would be suited to be added to the guide:

Ernesto Prinoth became successful as inventor of snow grooming vehicles founding his own company
http://www.prinoth.com

Jean-Claude Rudaz's aviation company is Transvalair (http://www.transvala.../ourhistory.htm)

Two other things: In April 2004 an article in www.velocetoday.com mentioned the "late Mike Sparken". An email to the editor
only brought forth the information that he had heard about it, was pretty sure but didn't know details...

And what about good old Mauritz von Strachwitz? Isn't his story (http://8w.forix.com/df2-ebwg.html) comparable to that of
Ricardo Londono-Bridge who is mentioned in the guide? Both not officially F1 entrants but worth a notion :-)
I very politely mailed the Strachwitz site for some more information but their noblenesses didn't care to reply.

Neither did www.paulengland.com.au, a pity, as Paul England is one of the few drivers that I could not find a picture of on the net.

If someone here would be able (and kind) to help me with that I would be grateful.

Oh btw if you're in need of a good snicker go to http://www.oppitzhau...ppitzhauser.htm and read what Karl the Man has to say about his F1 career :cool:

(translated: "After his win in the Castrol Cup 1972 on a Ford Mexico Karl Oppitzhauser competes in the Alfa Sud Cup and then progresses into F3 for a season. After very competitive showings he finally makes the cut into F1. With a March 761 he drives in Brands Hatch 1976 and various other European circuits. Together with his teammates [sic!] Ronnie Peterson, Vittorio Brambilla and Hans-Joachim Stuck Oppitzhauser makes a good impression even in the crown class of motorsports.")

A couple of bits & bobs...

Kenneth Acheson; now lives in Bradford on Avon, and runs a highly successful toiletry company with his wife Fiona.

Tommy Byrne; shortly due to move to Mid Ohio (from Ormond Beach, Florida), nearer to where he works as a senior instructor at the racing school. He's no longer commentating.

BTW Jo Gartner's entry could be a little more enlightening, couldn't it? Perhaps a mention of his fifth place in the 1984 Italian GP, or his win at the Pau F2 race in 1983? Just a thought...

And let's not forget Gartner's biggest victory in his career: the 1986 12 Hours of Sebring co-driving with Bob Akin and Hans Stuck.

Looking back at it, it's amazing that of those three, it's only Stuck who's around with us today - and that both Gartner and Akin died in violent prototype rolls of some sort. :cry:

Thanks guys.
re. Gartner, i will see but to be fair, there are countless sites which deal with achievements, I wanted to be that little bit different :drunk: :D

I believe Sparken to be alive, he´s such a pivotal historic meeting man that I´m sure someone would have informed me by now. It´s not the first time he´s been listed as "dead"!

Other info is very helpful, ta. Update v. soon & David Holland has done well with some more obscurer entrants! :clap:

Just a short observation on the Roy Sherman link (http://www.worthyofh...Roy_Sherman.htm).
It states in his bio that he attempted to qualify for the 1951 AND 52 Indy. I haven't found any mention anywhere about the 52 attempt though.

Btw there was also a mention in the thread about the non-qualifiers being added to forix. Whatever became of that?

re. FORIX, I'm not sure. Joao at FORIX is best to answer that, however he might be waiting for me to do the Indy 500 completely (which I'm on at the moment)

Sherman, yep, I had two attempts down but I couldn't find a 52 qualifying attempt. I believe though he was entered yet somehow didn't make it to the track.

F3000 correction:
Elton Julian, never worked as a racing instructor. He might have done some coaching for some friends, but never worked at a racing school. He is now working in Hollywood, editing a popular TV show for FOX and raising a family. Before that he was a team manager of a national karting team in the US and before that ran a casting studio in L.A after the 99 Atlantic season. :)

There's a few drivers for your list about to get underway on the Dakar today for the first event of 2005 (shades of the '30's AGP here)

Jean Louis Schlesser will of course be leading his team of two Ford powered buggies.

Philippe Gache will also be racing a SMG buggie that I know little about.

Robby Gordon has acquired himself a factory supported Volkswagen Touareg.

Ellen Lohr is driving for the 2 Drive Adventure team in an unknown vehicle at time of printing the entry list.

Paul Belmondo is driving a semi-factory Nissan Dessoude entered Nissan X-Trail

Ukyo Katayama is on the entry in a Toyota Auto Body enterred Toyota HDJ100 (presumably a LandCruiser)

Eric Bernard is also entered in a Toyota.

Cor Euser is down in a Fast & Speed Honda Buggy.

thats about it I think.

Richie: We are good friends. We went to high school together. The first kart I drove was his, and he basically showed me how to get involved in racing.

Your site is very cool, I had fun reading it. I'd like to add something else. Arnd Meier is this season Langstreckenmeisterschaft champion. The Langstreckenmeisterschaft is the endurance sportscar/ sedan championship that runs monthly at the Nordschleife (Old Nurburgring). He drove a BMW in that series. BTW, I don't know Arnd, I just know of the series.

All the best, keep up the good work and maybe one day you can do a CART section.

A couple of pieces of new information that Richie alluded to in an earlier post:-

From a recent letter Tony Settember confirmed his place of birth as Manila, Philippines. Rather a surprise as I thought he was born in California.

Another driver not born in California as previously documented is Peter Broeker who was born in Hamilton, Ontario. This was mentioned in a small biog on the back of a booklet Peter had written on Olympic coins, so a pretty reliable source I guess.

Happy New Year & save a thought for the people in SE Asia.

Does anyone know anything yet about Broeker's death? Or a picture other than the fuzzy close-up of the shot of him in his Stebro? Every time I write to Stebro they say they'd love to tell me all about him but they're really busy right now - they'll get back to me when they have time... :|

Bretonbanquet, the short answer is no.

I've tried on and off for a couple of years or more to find out more about this mystery. I've written to Stebro, The Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame and town boroughs where he had connections (namely Hamilton and Pointe Claire) but nothing has come back on his death.

He was only about 50 when he died, so there is more that needs to be known. He had taken up racing again by the mid 70s in some historic series, so somebody should know something. Maybe it's being kept back for some reason. Anyhow, I don't think Stebro know more than we do.

I think I will resurrect my Peter Broeker thread and add the new info I know now and something may then come to light!?

That sounds like a good plan - maybe there's a new face on TNF who has further information. Broeker is the biggest mystery man remaining of the Championship GP starters - and as you say, he wasn't old when he died, so there's a story there to be told. It might need some serious detective work though :

I am currently reading the F3000 list and noticed a small typo in the Kenny Brack Entry. it says

Another driver who should?ve made it to F1



i think the "?" should be a an apostrophe :)

Thank you for all the comments, suggestions, errors etc.
Barry, I noticed I didn't reply to the Soukry question - I had a look, but was unable to find anything but it was only a brief scan.
:blush:

Unfortunaetly, there have been a spate of deaths both in the family & close friends, so this is causing a few setbacks, but I am now in the UK for a while & hope to complete the Indy 500 once & for all in this time. I will then be doing European F2 championship drivers & I've started to collate data for this.
If all goes well, I will then expand to CART, the IRL & the GP2 series, but this will not be, I would imagine until early 2007. I can probably do the last three quite quickly as most of them are covered elsewhere. That's the plan so far.....................

Anyway, latest updates are now up for your perusal after a gap of a few months - mainly a update but of course with many 2005 seats up for grabs there will be a few more in the running before I leave - but I hope to find some more obscure info in the meantime. Be aware there are two updates - one from Nov & one from Jan.

THANKS

It was a thread by Dan Axelsson that found that "my" R'OB was clearly not "our" R'OB. There is hope though for a proper answer.....

Talking with Bruce Moxon on another fora and he says Andrej Pavicevic is on fairly aggresive kemo for leukemia.

:(

Hope he's quickly on top of it, I used to love watching his form in the Zepter backed Suzukis and Subarus.
