Help with Formula Ford history 1972 and before
Posted 14 May 2013 - 17:37
They have a new history project and they want to gather as much information and personal experiences as they can in the period from the start of the Formula Ford concept in 1967 up to the end of 1972.
What they would most like is memories of the formula in the period, those who took part or helped. Programme pages if you still have any , anecdotes, personal experiences, stories of the people and the cars. Photos and anything that might be of interest especially from those involved then who are still involved in motorsport now in whatever guise and if FF was a stepping stone to other formulae for them.
Knowing the astonishing breadth of knowledge on TNF, nice people they would be most grateful for any help you might be able to give.
It would make an interesting read here too.

Fantastic Pete any chance of posting a scan of the FF entry or send it to me and I can do it.

Later with Torinos, with their excessive wear rate and extra costs. F100 had its own series, oft much maligned.
on road tyres, were they Firestone F100s ( very hazey memory! )
