Raison d'être

The intention of this site is to be a complete database for Formula Three racing from 1950 to 2000, as far as it is possible every race, every car and every driver will be found here.

There is still a huge amount of work to be done but I felt it would be sensible to publish what I have done so far. This will always be a continually evolving site as more and more information is added so if I waited until everything was done it would never see the light of day!

I am looking for whatever assistance I can find so if you have anything at all you think might help please see the Contact page for details of how to get in touch with me.

I am especially looking for:
a) Full details of races, both qualifying and results.
b) Full end of season Championship tables.
c) Details and pictures of the various marques.
d) Biographies of F3 drivers.

I especially require help with the final option, the driver biographies, so if you would like to tell the story of any driver who competed in F3 whether it is a Senna or a Schumacher or even one of the lesser names please let me know.

Importantly please remember I'm only human so there are probably mistakes in what I have done so far (even though I've done my best to be totally accurate) so if you see anything wrong please tell me and I can correct it.

Please also remember that much of this site takes a long time to prepare so don't expect daily updates! For example adding the races for a particular year, by the time I've researched it and written it all up scanned the pictures etc. can take several months so please be patient.

I am constantly updating details, particularly as regards who drove the various cars and as I research the races in depth I will be able to add more and refine the details but if you have any more details don't hesitate to let me know.

So please, if you think you can help me add to this site in any way at all whether it is contributing or suggesting any additions or changes you would like to see please contact me.

Much of the material on this site, most especially the pictures, have been collected from a huge number of sources during my research. I hope nobody has any objection in these items being used on what is intended to be an historical record resulting in no monetary gain, however if you own the copyright to anything used here and object to it being shown please contact me.
