British F3 - Dugdale follow up
Posted 04 September 2000 - 06:57
I wrote to you in May asking for information on British F3 races for 1974/75 as my late father 'Peter Dugdale' raced in these years. Thanks for posting the request on the nostalgia forum of the Atlas site. There were three responses, but unfortunately they never got back to me. Huw Jenjin and Don Capps replied to your post saying that they probably have some information somewhere in the form of old programmes etc. and bobdar said he had an F3 car which Alex Ribiero drove in 1974 in the British F3 races and said he was happy to share information. I had written to Bobdar with bits of information I have gathered and also to Don Capps, but have yet to have had a reply. I may be the case that they could'nt find any info. and thought it was pointless in writing to me if they have nothing to tell me.
Do have regular contact with these people and if so, would it be possible to remind them of my request.
I have had some joy with my research. I have found out through an Autosport article written about by dad after he had won a formula Libre race during April 1974 that his March 733 belonged to Richard Robarts in 1973. I have found out that my dad did two German F3 races during september of 1974 at Mainz-Finthen and Nurburgring racing against several other drivers who went onto F1 including Hans Binder, Harald Ertl, Conny Andersson and Gunnar Nilsson who my dad actually beat in the final of the Nurburgring event. These results feature on a very comprehensive German F3 site which you
probably already know about, but if not the address is
Well I hope I have'nt bored you too much and if you could help with the British F3 results I would be extremely grateful.
Can you help at all? Don?

Note the underline, not a dash.
I also am looking for '74-'75 F3 results, particularly re. Alex Ribiero in the '74 GRD, which currently lives in my garage. Alex took over Brian Henton's March F3 seat in '75, and actually sold his '74 transporter (with the GRD inside!) to Brian. If Brian used the car at all I'd be surprised, but he eventually sold it to a fellow from Seattle. The next time the car was raced, it won the '76 SCCA Formula C championship with an 1100 cc BDJ, the current motor. I've spoken with Alex in San Paulo, and he was very helpful and friendly, and Emailed some photos of the car from 1974.
Any information re. Alex's '74 F3 results would be great.

I know, it's the same as bobdar's, so it remains puzzling! He also gave me the following:
