In addition to the series covered in the Grand Prix books the Formula One Register has also been keeping detailed records of other forms of formula racing including US racing dating back to its inception in 1909. The books include every known race, in the usual Fact Book style. Since these volumes were first made available we have continually updated the records and have added previously missing information and extended the series to cover more recent seasons.

Detailed race results from various forms of US Racing, including Indycar, Champ Car, IRL, Indy Lights, Can-Am, Formula 5000. Each race contains entry list, starting grid and race results with times, fastest laps and reasons for retirement where known.

Each volume is bound in standard Formula One Register black covers with the title embossed on the front and spine. Cost is £50 + postage

Can-Am 1966-1987


Can-Am started out as a race series for group 7 sports racers with two races in Canada (Can) and four races in the United States of America (Am). The series was governed by rules under the FIA group 7 category for two-seater racing cars with unrestricted engine capacity and few other technical restrictions. Spiralling costs, a recession in North America following the oil crisis, and dwindling support and interest led to the series being cancelled and the last scheduled race of the 1974 season not being run.

The Can-Am name still held enough drawing power to lead SCCA to introduce a revised Can-Am series in 1977 based on a closed-wheel version of the rules of the recently cancelled Formula A/5000 series. This grew steadily in status, particularly during the USAC/CART wars of the late 70s and early 80s, and attracted some top road-racing teams and drivers and a range of vehicles including specials based on rebodied single seaters (particularly Lola F5000s) and also bespoke cars from constructors like March as well as smaller manufacturers.

To broaden the appeal of the series a 2-litre class was introduced for the last several years with cars often being derived from F2/Formula Atlantic. Can-Am remains a well-remembered form of racing due to its popularity at one time, the spectacular cars and the line-up of talented drivers. Can-Am cars remain popular in historic racing.

As a sports car series it is therefore outside the usual focus of the Formula One Register, however 1974 was the last year for the original Can-Am championship. Rather than just focus on the single-seater based era, this record covers the whole Can-Am series from 1966 to 1987.

It is in the usual Record Book format of entry, grid and results with chassis numbers if known. The is no descriptive text or photographs. With 237 pages, in black hard-cover bindings the cost is £60 plus postage.

Indy Lights Results


This record covers all eras of the Indy Lights series starting in 1986, running up to the present. We believe that this is a unique record of an important class of racing that is not available anywhere else as a single source of reference, and is a valuable companion to our set of top-tier Indycar-style books. Customers should be aware that it is a copy of our records, as they stand at the time of printing, rather than a book with fixed content. Therefore corrections and additions are very welcome.

The format is our usual one – each race is covered with entry list, grid positions, full results with race times and fully indexed. Please note that there are no race descriptions or photographs.

It is 350 pages and is supplied hard-bound in black covers in the general style of our other publications, but customers should be aware that as these are printed for each order, the standard of production may be a little below professionally printed standards. Also, because of the need to format and print the records it may take longer than normal to dispatch the order.

1908 – 1941
The formative years of motor racing in the US where European-style road races gradually changed to where the majority of races were held on dirt or board ovals. The board-track era is generally recognised as one of the high points of US racing, when the quality of entries and racing eclipsed the European scene.



1946 – 1965
Covering the return to racing following WWII and the move from AAA sanctioning to Tony Hulman’s new USAC organisation. Aside from a few hill climbs, races were almost exclusively held on oval tracks. This was the era of the classic Offy Indy roadster.



1966 – 1981
Sees the dominance of British built rear-engined cars and a gradual shift away from dirt oval racing and the re-introduction of road racing. Increasing costs began to push some of the “grass roots” racers out and the professional teams began to dominate



1982 – 1995
Now officially under the sanctioning of CART, the success of the Long Beach GP saw growing numbers of street circuits added to the calendar at the expense of some of the traditional venues. Increasing professionalism attracted many non-American drivers to seek a career in Indycar racing. By the end of this period it was seen as a legitimate rival to F1, with European chassis and engine builders dominating



1996 – 2004
Covering the period following “the split” where the IRL took the Indy 500 and ran a rival series. The CART sanctioned Indycar championship, which underwent a name change to Champ Car from 1997, remained in a dominant position until the 2003 season which saw several of the top teams and two engine manufacturers switch to the IRL late in the day.



2005 – 2019
Bringing the series up to date, this volume covers the final years of the Champ Car and IRL rivalry, through the 2008 unification, up to the end of the 2019 season.
