Following on from the well-received Formule Libre (Europe) 1929-61 book published in 2014 (2nd edition 2016), forum members may like to know that the Formula One Register has now extended the topic to cover European Libre races 1962-66.
The record is in the same style as the Record of Grand Prix & Voiturette series, often referred to as the "black books", with full entries and, where possible, grids and and full results.
The result of 60 years of data collection, the book documents in detail over 500 races with information that has never previously been available.
Most races were in the UK with, often, several races on a weekend. But there were also Libre races in the Netherlands and the Swiss Championship held races at Hockenheim and Monza.
In the UK Libre races saw ex-Formula 1 and 2 cars taking part, sometimes re-engined with American V8 engines, along with Formula Juniors and sports cars. In the mid-60s Brabhams, Lotuses and Coopers with twin-cam Lotus-Ford engines were usually at the front at least until the iconic Kincraft appeared.
Unlike the first volume, this book does not distinguish between lesser and more significant races. All are fully documented with entry, grid and results, as far as it has been possible to obtain the information. These races have never previously been fully documented.
The book is 453 pages hard-bound in the usual Formula One Register style. Chassis numbers are given where they were observed or are recorded in the Register’s archive. Although generally there are no illustrations, there are photographs of some of the more unusual Netherlands cars..
Price is £80 + postage (£4.50 UK; rest of Europe £15 but please note that under EU rules national sales tax and a collection fee will be payable on or before delivery; £27.50 USA)
