I know this is quite unrelated, but what type of racing occurred during communism. All I know is of Formula Vostok in the 1980's.

While we're waiting for Flicker to reply... I do know there was an Eastern European F3 series from the late 50s to the early 70s: the Estonian TARK and East German Melkus were among the cars raced and IIRC there was at least one race a year in the USSR.
Motoring News in the UK used to carry occasional reports from behind the Iron Curtain, but I'm afraid I no longer have those...:(

"Remember" the rumour of an appearence of Russian cars in British F1 races in 1958 and 1959. Those two years the organisers of the Silverstone International Trophy announced a possible participation of Russian racing cars in their races.

You know that the organisers were helped by a newspaper, the Daily Express. The paper published some pictures of Russian cars. It was in fact the Kharkov VI, an aerodynamic 6-cylinder car which apparently conformed to F1 and had achieved 175 mph on a 6-mile course in the hands of Valiery Nitikin. The car was a special built for record-breaking.

Mike Lawrence in "Grand Prix cars 1945-1965" has written 3 paragraphs about the Kharkov but concluded that, as a Grand Prix car, the Kharkov is a myth". He also said that the Kharkov received a lot of publicity in Britain, not only in specialist magazines but also in the national press.

I would add that it was not only in Britain but also in Belgium that the picture(s) was (were) published. I've seen in "Les Sports" (dated from March 58 and also 1959) some articles about the "Russian F1 cars" and the famous Kharkov 6 picture. The journalist who wrote those articles clearly admitted that he used British sources.

The funniest argument was that some Russian tennismen were going to play at Wimbledon ! If the tennismen went, why not the F1 drivers !!!

The 1908 race from St. Petersburg to Moscow, won by Victor Héméry (Benz) on 19. May has been mentioned in several books.

But how about the 1907 event St. Petersburg-Moscow, which appears in GRAND PRIX RACING Facts and Figures by George Monkhouse and Roland King-Farlow?
1. A. Duray (Lorraine-Dietrich)
2. Champoiseau (C.G.V.)
3. Folkin (F.I.A.T.)

I cannot find another source with back-up information. No date, distance or speed. Does anybody have information, possibly in the Braunbeck Lexicon?

The Georgano Encyclopaedia gives a distance of 438.25 miles (705.29km) for both 1907 and 1908, giving Duray as the winner in a Lorraine-Dietrich. However, as King-Farlow says 438 miles for 1908 only, perhaps that's just an assumption (entry signed by Vladimir Havranek, if that helps you Hans).

There is also a reference to a circuit race at St Petersburg in 1898 won by a Russian driver called Mazi in a Panhard at 24km/h, and a 1902 event organised by the journal Automobile on 39.77ml (64km) route from Krasnoye Selo to Gatchina and back, won by Suromec in a Georges Richard at 27.79mph (44.78km/h).

On the other hand:
The entry for Duray says he didn't win in 1907 at all and there's no mention of the event in the De Dietrich entry. The entry for CGV says the 1905 Gordon Bennett trials were the end of the firm's competition career. The Fiat entry does mention Folkin's third place as rounding off an excellent season, but perhaps that's just "received wisdom"?
Certainly CGV didn't run in the 1906 or 1907 GP de l'ACF and Champoiseau is better known as a driver of Th. Schneider cars later in the pre-1914 period. I've never come across Folkin anywhere else, but as it sounds like a Russian name, perhaps that's not surprising, and I have no pretensions to being an expert on this period!

By any chance would you be so kind and translate the proper title of the ‘History of Soviet Autosport’ book by L. Shugurov and A. Kurdzinauskas, published in Vilnius 1976.

What makes you think the race was held in May? Any clues?

sat,
Thank you very much. You supplied very good information here, because now it sounds very accurate. The problem with some of these old races is that available information comes incomplete and we try to assemble all little snippets we can get hold of and put them together like a jigjaw-puzzle. I have done that before and have on occasions been lucky in seeing a much more complete picture than I would have had from just one or two sources.

As soon as I finish a few projects here, I will be back with the pre-war Czechoslovakian mountain climbs, to carry on with Roman what he started in the Ecce-Homo thread.

Racing scene in Russia during comunism wasn't very prolific but there were several races, like Leningrad GP for sportcars in late 50's (won by Skoda prototype sold on auction of Duncan Rabagliatti's collection a few years ago).
Skoda also made a F3 in 60's, exposed in Prague Technical museum along with a Lotus F3 from same period (does it mean some western cars were included in east european F3 series?)
BTW in same museum you can see a Mercedes W159, unrestored, with cracking golden (?!) paint and wonderful patina.

Of course it is a W154, sorry, I was in a hurry... But why it is golden? Does anybody know?
I also forgot to mention well developed east european rally scene - Skoda's efforts are well known but Moskvitch, Wartburg and Trabant also had strong factory presence in European rallies of 60's and 70's. Later, in 80's several east european top drivers raced Renault 5 turbos, and there were much more interesting rally cars

Kharkov-6 was built by engineer Vladimir Nikitin (1911-1992).
This was the development of his succesful Kharkov-3 recordbreaking car.

Posted Image
Kharkov-3

Posted Image
Kharkov-6

Its engine, based on Pobeda's agregate, had two valved head and one (later two) compressors. 1970 cc, 4-cilinder, apprx.200 h.p. at 6000 rev. Weight - 1000 kgs. Max speed -282 km/h (10 December 1953 on the public road Simpheropol-Djankoy in Crimea: aggregate in two directions - 280,156 km/h).

Later, Nikitin was responsible for the supersonic HADI-9 record breaker project.


P.S.
And, please, don't forget that Soviet Union joined F.I.A. only on the 15th October of 1956.

P.P.S. And for sure... they are not formula cars. :smoking:

pobeda was a large Russian car, made during '40s and '50s, and well until '70s in poland as Warszawa. See more at:
www.autogallery.org.ru/gaz20.htm

Maybe you'll wait some time to load it, but it should be worth.

That much would appear to be obvious. So obvious, in fact, that it is is difficult to understand how the 'formula 1' rumours came about in the first place.

My first thoughts were, either

a) typical cold-war Russian propaganda -
No - Any propaganda value in saying "we've got a formula 1 car' is bound to be negated by the car failing to show
or
b) a completely made-up story by the Daily Express -
No - it's not totally unknown these days for a newspaper to fabricate a story out of nothing, but didn't thay have slightly more integrity in the 50's? And what would be the point in making up such an incredible story? And why include pictures which actually disprove it?

So, I'm inclined towards the theory that the Daily Express story was indeed based on information from a credible source (Silverstone?) that there WAS a possibility of a Russian entry. Maybe not from Kharkov, though. Given that the Kharkov record runs were in 1953, it is highly probabe that the Express already had the pictures in their archive, and included them in the formula 1 story merely as an illustration of 'a fast Russian car', with no implication that this was actually the formula 1 car.

That is why I'd like to see the original Daily Express article, to find out what they actually did say. But it still begs the question - there must have been some approach from some Russian constructor to the the Silverstone organisers for the story to be circulated in the first place. Mustn't there?
