Sources

The identification of individual cars in these results is based on the material presented elsewhere in this site and may in some cases contradict the organisers' orginal results.

Despite its success, FSV attracted little coverage and establishing complete race results is proving difficult. The SCCA's Sports Car magazine, On Track and Racecar have proved the most useful sources for the US series. Information on the European series would be most welcome.
