I am sure this question has been asked before, but other than scrolling through old programmes or magazines, is there a 'one stop shop', as it were, to find British Formula Ford results (of all championships) from 1970-1975?

 

I'm talking about full results, not just winners, if at all possible.

 

I've made a few enquiries but an Autosport/Motoring News/etc etc seems to be the only way to do it, which I was hoping, for time purposes, to avoid.

 

Thanks, as always, in advance.

Ah, Peter Hull - Never seemed to drive the same car twice. I remember, at Chris Steele's, when Alan Jones got a top F3 drive, Hull saying "Alan Jones! He couldn't drive a greasy stick up a dog's arse..."

 

The kind of quip one never forgets, and so wrong...

I'm talking about full results, not just winners, if at all possible.


How brave (or, foolish?) are you?  ;) Full Formula Ford results? Just recently, I read a report about a 1975 (I think) Formula Ford race, claiming that the entry was "badly affected" by a couple of clashing races, so that only two heats were sufficient to deal with the paltry 88 cars. Mind you, that was just one of approximately 200 or 300 FFord races in Britain that year alone.

 

One of my long-term projects is to find the top six (or, maybe ten if I'm lucky) finishers of the three big club championships, and I've done a bit of preparational work so far. It would be good to know what exactly you're after, and maybe I could bring this task forward a bit, but it's certainly not a job of a few weeks, so a time frame in which you need the data would be helpful, too. :)

To be more precise, and to avoid doing unnecessary duplication of work, I have a pretty full collection of 1975 Autosport in digital copies, so if Rupert continues with his early seventies results, I could chime in with the 1975 results later on. But, to be brutally honest, I have a pretty full plate of work these days, so I'm not really anxious to do this; on the other hand I will do this anyway some time in the future, so to bring it forward would be sensible if I know it is exactly what you're after, Richard!

Not quite in the target zone, but:

 

Sebring, Sunday 28 December 1969, Grants '8' Formula F Championship, 30 laps, 66 miles, prize awards of $10,000

Formula Ford entry list included:

Gerry Birrell, Belfast, Northern Ireland, the 1969 European FF Champ;

Tim Schenken, the 1968 FF European and British titleholder;

Tony Trimmer, who won 10 races in 18 starts this year;

Reine Wisell, the 1969 European Formula 3 winner;

Huub Vermeulen, the Dutch FF champ;

Dave Walker, Sydney, Australia, Lotus 61 — "Walker holds the British Formula Ford Championship."

 

Some sources say race due on the Saturday, but run Sunday "between the two heats of the feature" Formula A races.  

 

Provisional results:

1. Tim Schenken, London, Fred Opert Racing, Titan Ford-Lucas, 40:38.9 minutes, 97.537 m.p.h.

2. Bill Scott, McLean, Va., Climax-Royale Ford

3. Skip Barber, Carlisle, Mass., Caldwell-Ford

4. Jim Jenkens, Yonkers, N.Y., Winklemann-Ford

5. Jim Clarke, Dearborn, Mich., Caldwell-Ford

6. Kurt Reinold, Rockford, Ill., Merlyn-Ford

7. Steve Louden, Dallas, Tex., Merlyn-Ford

8. Jack Cowell, New York, Winklemann-Ford

9. Nils Sanborn, Media, Pa., Merlyn-Cortina

10. Ed Patick, Dallas, Tex., Merlyn-Cortina

 

Qualifying: 4th Schenken; Scott 6th

 

"Stewards disqualified

Schenken late Sunday night

for having an illegal fly-

wheel on the car in violation

of race specifications.

Dr. William Scott of Mc-

Lean, Va., who trailed

Schenken across the finish

line by nine-tenths of a sec-

ond was declared the win-

ner."

The Tampa Tribune (Tampa, Florida) Tuesday 30 Dec 1969, Page 24.

 

Schenken demoted to 22nd and last.

 

Does anybody have entry list/grid/report for this event? Why did the visiting foreign drivers not feature in the results?

Formula Ford was noted for the variety of cars from different manufacturers. Here is another to add to the list. Is anything more known?

 

Photo caption of car #65: 

Clive Baker wins his

'race against time'

TORQUAY'S inter-

national racing driver

Clive Baker, roaring

down the runway at

Exeter Airport yesterday

evening at 137 m.p.h.

He successfully com-

pleted a fortnight's race

against time to build and

test his Baker Formula

Ford car, which he is

racing in America next

week.

Held up by a shortage

of essential parts because

of trouble in the car in-

dustry, Clive and his two

mechanics, John Major

and Dick Thompson have

driven miles in search of

the pieces of equipment

they needed to finish

building the car, and have

worked late into the night

for a fornight to meet

their deadline for the

test.

Final tests

Clive leaves Torquay

tonight, with the car, to

go to London Airport

where he is flying out on

tomorrow's jumbo jet to

America. He will carry

out his final tests at the

new road circuit at

Atlanta, Georgia, where

next week he will com-

pete in the final cham-

pion race of the Formula

Ford of the United States.

He is carrying the word

"TORBAY" on the side of

his car as well as on his

racing overalls, so the

county borough will be

well advertised.

Clive is on a sales drive

after the race to promote

the sale of the cars he

builds in his Torquay

workshop, and expects to

be in the States for at

least a couple of weeks.

Torbay Express and South Devon Echo, Saturday 3 October 1970, Page 1

"Gerry Birrell, Belfast, Northern Ireland, the 1969 European FF Champ"

 

Thought he was Scottish, did he ever live in NI? or Tampa Tribune excess of imagination?

I assume Belfast relates to the entrant in this case ( presumably Crossle ? )

Self entered whilst Gerry's Crossle was entered as a works car ( wasn't the US the main market for Crossle )?

1970:

Formula Ford team

leaves for Rio

MOST OF the world's top Formula Ford drivers left Gatwick Airport, London yesterday (Thursday) en route for Rio de Janeiro and a five-race £10,000 championship series starting on Sunday. Among the drivers are two girls Gabriel Konig, from Ireland, and Liane Engeman, from Holland. European-based drivers from ten different countries will be competing in eight different makes of Formula Ford cars in the Torneio International BUA Formula Ford, with almost £2,000 in prize money for each of five races. The races will be at Rio de Janeiro on February 1, at Curitiba on February 8, at Rio again on February 15, at Fortaleza on February 22, and finally at Sao Paulo on March 1. Each race will be about 120 miles in length, run in two equal parts with aggregate times providing the overall result. Points will be on the same basis as the Fl drivers' world championship 9, 6, 4, 3, 2 and 1 for the first four events, with double points for the final race.

New Lola T200

The series will see the first racing appearance of the Lola T200, a sophisticated design, notable for being wider and shorter than its current rivals, in order to give good handling on road tyres (though the Brazilian series permits racing tyres). The car has fabricated front uprights and extra-large disc brakes, and is within a few pounds of the minimum weight laid down for Formula Ford. The T200 has already been tested at Brands Hatch by Brazilian ace Ricardo Achcar who likes the car very much and will be driving it in the Torneio. Eric Broadley, Lola chief, says: "The test were most encouraging, though we never had a dry circuit. So in effect Ricardo will be continuing the test programme in Brazil." British drivers include Ed Patrick (Hawke), Sid Fox (Mistrale), Ray Allen (Royale), Clive Santo (Merlyn), and Reg James (Lotus).
