I'm looking for major F3 results between '66 and '68, but neither Darren nor Stefan seem to have them on their sites.

Did see that Stefan is planning to, so could he help me out? Anyone else jumping in to save me is welcome too!

Thanks in advance...

Motor Sport's annual results survey has first three only for the major races if that helps :)

And I'm sure you're aware that the German F3 register has the top 10 for Monaco each year, plus the occasional other International race.

Yes, spotted those already.;)

I'm after the DAF results in particular, in order to beef up my CVT story. :D

I have several isolated results (6th here, 7th there, etc.) but I would love to know the entry and the season's calendar, just to have an idea of what The Chequered Flag and RTH were up against.

Paul Sheldon's F3 soft-cover books have almost complete coverage of the major races - entry lists, practice times, grid positions and full official results. Try his web site to see if any are still for sale.

Hodges also says van Lennep won a race in late 1967 - a Dutch national event, presumably?

There's some information on Rallydaf ; in Dutch but that would not spoil the fun too much. Opgave = DNF, Algemeen means Overall.
No sign of van Lennep winning in 67; the only thing I can imagine is a Libre race, no national F3 in the Netherlands.
If you have troubles with the translation let me know.

Richard: great stuff, thanks so much! (I see our old friend Roy Pike in there as well...)

About the supposed wins: the Dutch sources, rallydaf.nl among them (had already seen it, but thanks anyway, Frank), remain very unclear about them and generally seem quite uninformed, with their writers' main knowledge centering around the road and rally cars.

There's one which says that in 1966 Beckwith - in a Chequered Flag Brabham-Ford/DAF - took two wins out of 16 starts (which starts anyway?), but I can't back that up and it seems unlikely in any case. So possibly heat wins? Also found a 4th at "Magny-Cours" (which event?) and a 3rd in the Coupe de l'Avenir, where Slotemaker is said to have taken a heat win.

Then there's the common mention of Beckwith winning at Brands in 1967 and taking second at Brno, as seen above in Richard's list. Interesting to see that these were all late-season results.

The 1967 Van Lennep win was at Skarpnack - perhaps Stefan can confirm this.

For 1968 RTH took over with Tecno chassis. No wins, but several placings. BTW, what's true about the great story that Van Lennep and Beckwith took each other off in their last race while in first and second position...

25/9 Circuit of Albi - Piers Courage (Lotus)
2/10 European Cup, Brands Hatch - Chris Irwin (Lotus)

The Monza Lottery race was a two heat/final format, as was the European Cup, so maybe some of your dubious wins might be in those Mattijs?

O/T but in those results there are some great names - Pike of course, Irwin, Courage, Williams etc etc ... plus one or two others in the also-rans like Brian Hart, Eric Offenstadt, Carlo Facetti, Manfred Mohr, Tony Lanfranchi, Derek Bell, Charlie Crichton-Stewart, Mike Knight, Alan Rollinson, Chris Craft, Ulf Svensson, Leo Kinnunen ....

Stefan, thanks! Can you imagine - it was right there in my own webspace! :rotfl:

But... Gemini-DAF?

Ah, found it in the Hodges book now. So Brabham was just for late '65 and '66? And the wins were actually taken by the Gemini chassis? Pretty sloppy for my Dutch sources to not even mention them...

Richard, I agree - what a collection of names! It's giving me the same sensation that I always have when looking at seventies F2 entry fields - just packed with ace drivers.

'fraid I can't help with the results, but in the late 1980s, I bought a used car from Mike Beckwith! He was a little taken aback that the kid writing a cheque for his old Hillman Avenger started asking him questions about Normand Racing and the Daf F3 venture....!

Cirrus, thanks!

1967 wasn't a bad season at all... Wonder why they ditched the Gemini and TCF, and went for RTH and Tecno instead (the fourth chassis in four years) - apart from the obvious Dutch/Slotemaker link with RTH and Regazzoni coming to the fore with the Tecno late-1967. Was there some emotion involved?

This is IMV's picture of the 1967 start. I've posted a link, as it's rather large. Mohr is at the front, car no. 17. Cooper or de Sanctis?

members.atlasf1.com/vitesse2/Pictures/brnostart.jpg

Comparing it to the de Sanctis picture in Hodges, it seems to be very similar, especially those vents in the front.

Mattijs: both the Dafs can be seen in this, BTW, although it's not a great picture and there's a bloody great repaired tear in it right through one of them!

V2 +Mikal and Sat

The official results sheet for Brno 1966 is just what the doctor ordered despite its primitive production. It is essential that the tracking down of official race results and programmes is the number one priority for all researchers. Hopefully more can be found, especially for the less well-known races held on the Continent.

Yet even these valuable sources have to be checked.

Example from this time sheet. I would be very surprised if Mohr was driving a Cooper.

1) The T83 Cooper was a disaster compared to its rivals.

2) Mohr drove a Brabham BT15 in other F3 races in 1966 including Monte Carlo, Cascais, Vila Real, Pergusa etc

3) Mohr raced with Stephanie in a team called Ecurie Fribourgeoise and in a photograph from "Historie automobilovych zavodu" by Zavrel and Doskocilova published in 2001 both of their cars seem to share the same colour scheme ( its a back and white photo!). Stepanie's car looks like BT18 and Mohr's a BT15.

The Czech book is a nicely presented little book but not the definitive history this circuit deserves.

Mohr isn't the only one not likely to have been in a Cooper... Collerson, I'm pretty sure, had a Brabham. He had one before he left Australia, I doubt that he'd have gone for a Cooper in Europe... I don't have my magazines here, but somebody could surely look it up in Racing Car News?

Barry Collerson was definitely driving a Cooper at Brno. Was not the Brabham he used in 1965 in Australia a BT2 of 1962 vintage? A decent car but even a T83 Cooper would have been a slight improvement.

As it was Barry was racing a well-sorted Cooper T76-Ford, along with his mate Kurt Zeller, throughout the 1966 season under the banner "Australia Racing". They restricted their campaign to the sunnier climes and raced mainly in Italy, Portugal and Yugoslavia with odd forays to places like Brno and the AVUS. Usually they were happy spear-carriers and the success they lacked on the track was compensated, no doubt, by their successes off it! They were part of the gypsy circus that toured round Europe living off the land ( starting money mainly ) and having a ball. You cannot help being envious.

They did have some success. Barry got on to the podium with a 3rd at Portoroz in Yugoslavia, now in Croatia. How they would have got their prize money out of the country I don't know. I was on holiday in Dubrovnik that year and had a bit of luck in the casino but was told I had to spend the winnings in Yugoslavia.

Barry, alone, was entered for two Brands Hatch races in late October and November and not surprisingly failed to show; hardly the weather he would have liked!

I'd be interested to know the previous owners of the Coopers and a little more about Zeller.

Just read my own text. That should be Kurt Keller, who I believe was an Australian despite the name.

That's right, Kurt Keller was an Australian, though I think he was a naturalised Australian...

He later was a dealer for Jensen Healeys, and had raced a Lotus 20 in the period before going to Europe.

Have you got the entry list for Brno 1967?

Mohr was driving a De Sanctis, I believe. He began the season racing a Brabham BT16 entered by himself and on one occasion by Maiers Motors, but that could be Mohr Motors if Manfred's handwriting was not very neat when he filled in his entry form.

In mid-season Mohr began racing the Scuderia Madunina De Sanctis, which was close to a works drive, but he fared no better than when he was in his older Brabham. In fact he raced the Brabham again towards the end of the seaon. Brno however was the best result, on a daunting circuit. At the time I expected Mohr to break into the big-time but he never did.

Mohr's 1966 team mate Stephanie raced a Merlyn 10 in 1967 as did the Aussie pair Collerson and Keller. If Keller was at Brno then Collerson may have been entered but I have no record.

Yes, I have. Manfred Mohr is there with Cooper, Martin Stephani with Merlyn, but no Collerson.

Now this is the first I hear: In my book Mohr has always been German! I believe he lived in Switzerland, though.

The striking stillness exuding from the picture is in full contrast with the ear-and-eye spectacle that it must have been for the spectators present. Really magnificent. :love:

I've got to agree, when you look at it, it's a really good example of the art of capturing the moment and freezing it forever...

The stark contrast with everything we know about circuits, the scene is against the rules of logic as we accept it today, yet so similar to things I've seen in the past... Longford and Bathurst, for instance...

It was sent to me by someone else.

Rather less stylish, but here's a pic of the 1967 F3 grid, showing #17 Mohr (clearly a De Sanctis), #16 Lennep, #14 Beckwith, #6 Eglington, #27 Baur etc. The report says they played the "Deutschlandlied", but I've found mention of Mohr driving with a Swiss licence.

Now this is the first I hear: In my book Mohr has always been German! I believe he lived in Switzerland, though.


I am sorry, my mistake... :blush:

Don't feel bad, these mistakes happen... and you even have an excuse, although by now I think I was wrong as well: I somehow remembered a Swiss connection with Mohr, and concluded he lived there, but I can't substantinate that - so it was maybe only a Swiss licence. Somewhere I have a quite (=to a great extend or degree) exhaustive article about Mohr in a late seventies "sport auto", he was quite (=very much) an interesting character, must try to find that...

Seeing as you're aware of my presence, Michael...

Do you still want that book?

It has a couple of late sixties F3 chassis in it... to make it topical...

In 66 Brno entry list Mohr figured as Swiss, in 67 as German. I also assume that some time he raced with swiss licence.
