Second edition – Now available

This volume (first published in 1996) covering the 1974 to 1978 period has now been updated to form a second edition. Principally these changes are additions or amendments to Formula 2 entry lists particularly Japanese races, and also chassis numbers for South African F1 races.

In this era, motor racing was changing. Television was making an increasing impact on the sport and in due course the needs of the fan at the track would take second place to the needs of TV. Sponsors were coming increasingly into the sport feeding a general increase in costs and the virtual disappearance of the non-championship race as teams and drivers no longer needed a bit of extra money. Mr Ecclestone was also becoming an increasing force in the sport.

At 409 pages the book contains, for the majority of races, full statistics including entry lists with starting numbers and chassis numbers of cars. A starting grid and full results are also included together with a brief description of the race. All races run to Formula One and Two regulations, however minor, have been included.

South African Formula 1 Championship 1960 – 1975


In 1999 the Formula One Register published Peter MacIntosh and Paul Sheldon’s book “A Record of South African Formula 1 Racing”. This provided a magnificent source of hard-to-find entries, grids and results but was less robust on car identities. Over the ensuing 20 years much effort has been put into the latter and an updated version is now available.

Please note that these races have already been incorporated in the 2nd Editions of the “A Record of Grand Prix and Voiturette Racing” series so this book is only likely to be of interest to those relying on the first editions.

The format of this book is the same as previous Formula One Register publications. Each race covered has an entry list including most chassis numbers, a short race report, grid positions, full results with race times as far as it has been possible to ascertain them. However, it must be noted that there are no photographs.

A copy of this record is available on a print-to-order basis. The book runs to over 250 pages and is delivered hard bound. It retails at £60 + £4.50 post & packing in the UK. Rest of Europe P&P £16.60 and USA £23. Please contact us for a quote for other countries.
