I am currently restoring the ex-George Reynolds Elfin formula vee (V6714) that George competed in 6 rounds of the F/Vee World Championship in 1968, among many other local events. On speaking to George recently he told me the rounds were at 1x Nurburgring, 2x in England (Brands Hatch ? and other track forgotten?), 1x at Zandvoort, 1x The Acropolis in Greece and 1x in Spain? at a track on the north coast. The cars ran 1300cc motors and George usually qualified about 5th on the grid- he tells me not all the motors were as standard as his. Due to the passing of years and his other motorsport achievements his memory of these events is patchy. (All local events that the car competed in are fairly well documented.) Except for one poor quality photo in the 1990 F/Vee National Meeting program, I have not been able to find and other reference to this championship and George's participation. Any snippets of information gladly received.-Geoff

I came across this picture of a World Formula Vee championship in the Bahamas in 1968:

Was this race the Caribbean leg of the championship?

Grand Bahama Grand Prix, 17 December 1967

Tony Jeffries Captures

Grand Bahama Prix Race

By BEN FUNK

FREEPORT, Bahamas (AP)

— The new champion of Grand

Bahama auto racing is Tony

Jeffries, a slender South African

who is a mechanic by trade, and

a man who dreams of becoming

the road racing champion of the

world.

Fighting off an early chal-

lenge from Americans and a

late rush by a pack of Austri-

ans, the 26-year-old Jeffries

roared to victory Sunday in the

Grand Prix of Formula V and

carried off his biggest jackpot

in six years of racing, a $10,000

prize.

When he won by the close

margin of 17 seconds over the

Austrian Formula V champion

Dieter Quester, the black-haired

South African knew he had been

in a fight every inch of the way.

John Ryan of Griffin, Ga.,

gave Jeffries a battle for 100

miles and then the Austrians

moved up to his tailpipe to push

him for the last 100.

"The Americans drive too

hard," said Jeffries, who calls

Johannesburg his home but

works for Capital Motors, a ga-

rage in Pretoria. "I had to set

a faster pace than I thought

would be necessary.

"If this had been a sprint

race, an American would have

won. But in a race of this

length, they push too hard,"

Jeffries said.

The Austrians pushed hard,

too, in the stretch run, but Jef-

fries survived with trouble-free

performance from a car he

helped design.

In a race so close that less

than a minute separated the

first five cars at times, Jeffries

took the chequered flag of victo-

ry 17 seconds before the arrival

of Quester at the finish line.

Right behind Quester came

two more Austrians, Jochen

Rindt and Dr. Jelmut Marko. (sic)

Ryan, plagued by mechanical

troubles after his great drive in

the first half of the race, held on

to take fifth. Switzerland's

champion, Werner Muller, was

sixth and another Austrian,

Gunther Huber, was seventh.

In the first 25 laps, when

Ryan passed him twice, Jeffries

set a fast pace of better then 67

miles an hour.

Then, Ryan's troubles ended

the American threat and yellow

caution flags warned of danger-

ous oil slicks on the course. Jef-

fries eased off. His average for

the route was 64.857 m.p.h.

The U.S. champion, Bill

Campbell of Pensacola, Fla.,

was expected to be the top chal-

lenger from the American slate,

but he was sidelined after spin-

ning off the course twice, the

second time when his brakes

failed.

Another American, Crockey

Peterson of Flat River, Mo.,

was in contention until he was

slowed by a collision with a

palm tree.

After six years of racing,

most of it in his own country

Jeffries will make a bid next

year for the world driver cham-

pionship decided on the Formu-

la One circuit. The first race on

the 1968 calendar is the Grand

Prix of South Africa to be run

Jan. 1.

Jeffries and George Von

Straaten designed the 1,500 cc

car which won Sunday's race

and Von Straaten built it from

scratch. This was the first time

the 1500 models, which dominat-

ed the race over the old 1200

series cars, had been in race

competition.

The Bridgeport Post (Bridgeport, Connecticut) Monday 18 Dec 1967, Page 31

 

The winning car of Tony Jeffries was the Capital Vee. He was George van Straaten. Note Quester, Rindt, Marko etc. What cars were they driving?

A race calling itself "EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP FORMULA VEE RACE" was on the bill at 60th B.A.R.C. International, Thruxton, Easter Monday, 15th April 1968.

Formula V cars (27 laps, 64 miles approx) 

1. Gerold Pankl (Austria) Austro, 43 min 12.6 sec (88.33 m.p.h.)

2. Werner Riedl (Austria) Austro, 43 min 16.2 sec  

3. Helmut Marko (Austria) Kaimann, 43 min 17.6 sec

Fastest lap: Riedl and Pankl, 1min 34.2 sec (90.04 m.p.h.)

"Miss Jennie Nadin, the

young girl driver who until

recently had worked in Bir-

mingham, crashed in the

Formula V race. She escaped

with a slight leg injury." 

 

Does anybody have an entry list? 

 

When did FV race at Brands Hatch in 1968? (International events listed  — March 17 Race of Champions, April 7, July 20 British Grand Prix, Sept 2)

 

There was a round of the Formula Vee Europa Cup at Keimola, Finland, 9 June 1968.

It would appear they qualified for the Championship Finals in zones:  https://forums.autos...e-championship/

Rupert, I no longer have my own programme from the 1968 Thruxton F2 meeting, but there are some for sale on eBay. This seller has kindly included a photo of the Vee entry which to my surprise includes, alongside the European regulars, Brian Muir, Bill McGovern and Martin Thomas.  Liane Engemann too.  Gerry Birrell of course, Nick Brittan and Mike Hayselden, who I recall racing Vees/Super Vees for years and years.

I have a copy of "Vee-Line 1964-1973", Martin Rudow's collection of Don Cheesman's newsletters. It has reports on some of the races mentioned here.

As for the 1967 Bahamas race, "...the three Austrian entries, Dieter Quester, Jochen Rindt, and Dr. Helmut Marko, (were) all in Austro Vaus..."

The winning car of Tony Jeffries, the Capital Vee, from South Africa, was bought by Pat Lobinger, of Silver Lake, Ohio. She was the wife of Ted Lobinger, field manager for Goodyear's Racing Division. Kept in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the car was entered for the Sebring race, 11 a.m., Friday 22 March 1968, for Pedro Rodriguez.

I am currently restoring the ex-George Reynolds Elfin formula vee (V6714) that George competed in 6 rounds of the F/Vee World Championship in 1968, among many other local events. On speaking to George recently he told me the rounds were at 1x Nurburgring, 2x in England (Brands Hatch ? and other track forgotten?), 1x at Zandvoort, 1x The Acropolis in Greece and 1x in Spain? at a track on the north coast. 

I am interested in this reference.  Greece is not well-endowed with race tracks but there seems to be one at Megara and one on an airfield at Tatoi, both near to Athens.  I do not know of their history.  Or was this a street circuit?  Clearly not actually on the Acropolis!

There was a round of the Formula Vee Europa Cup at Keimola, Finland, 9 June 1968.

It would appear they qualified for the Championship Finals in zones:  https://forums.autos...e-championship/

 

Still looking for info on the event at Keimola, 9 June 1968?

For Keimola, September 8th, see: https://forums.autos...e-finland-1968/ 

 

There was an International Match Race for Formula Vee cars at Scandinavian Raceway, Anderstorp, Sweden, 8 September 1968.

The winner was Bill Scott (USA).

 

"About that FVee race I went up to the attic to dig out my copy of the Swedish magazine Illustrerad Motor Sport No 10 1968. They wrote 17 lines about the race. They say it was one of the best FVee races in Scandinavia ever with lots of passing and repassing at the head of the field. As you write Bill Scott won the race ahead of Helmuth Bross (Germany) and Bertil Roos. Roos took the lead on the last lap but was passed on the long straight by the other two. Also in the field were Swedes Willy Holmberg, Anders Burlin and P. O. Boström.
There is a photo of Hannelore Werner saying that she finished sixth but not in which race she took part. She used to race FVee so probably she took part in that race."
 
1. Scott, 2. Bross, 3. Roos
Fastest lap: Scott (record)
 
Ref Bill Scott:
"In the meantime, just to keep in practice,
he entered another race in the European inter-
national series at Andersdorp, Sweden. At this
one he set another lap record—and came in
first!
He's driving his own Zink, equipped with a
1300cc engine prepared to European rules by
their top builder. The car has been left in
Europe between races, so he had to borrow a
car in which to run the Formula Vee Grand
Prix at Lime Rock—which he also won!"
VEE LINE, Number 48, September 1968 
 
These two latter events (on 8 September) were scheduled on the same date?
