Help needed to rebuild my testdrivers list !
Posted 26 March 2004 - 14:32
However in january this year the harddisk of my pc broke down. This normally isn't such a disaster since I keep my important files on burned cd-roms. However the cd were I burned the testdriver information on is damaged ! And with the file that was on my harddisk now gone I lost this testdriver list.
I was hoping that the members here could help me in restoring this year by year list, starting with the '80s.

However the testdrivers link to 8wforix is incomplete. I am for example sure that Andrew Gilbert-Scott was a testdriver for Lleyton House and I think he also tested for Jordan. And teams like Larrousse are missing ! Larrousse was a team that had several drivers testing for them in the '80s and early '90s, yet no one is mentioned.

Of course, any help is appreciated to fill in the gaps, but remember that the list only mentions official test drivers and not the one-off test drivers.

There are programs for restoring data from crashed HDs and CDs, and there are professionals doing this job as well. I guess you can find some on PC specialised magazines there in Belgium, I am too far to help more though.

When rebuilding your database can I make a small suggestion.
Differentiate between those who were a manufacturer's test driver such as Sanesi and those who had a 'try out' such as Senna in the Williams in 1983(?).
Good luck. I hope you manage to recover the data.
