Formula 1

Formula 1 was introduced for the 1948 season and is still going strong today. OldRacingCars.com is actively researching F1 from 1966 to 1985, the 3-litre period.

3-litre Formula 1 (1966 - 1985)

The Return to Power, after five seasons of the technically advanced but undernourished 1.5-litre formula, started one of the most exciting periods in the history of motor racing. The cars built over the next 20 seasons were the most varied and well-travelled ever built. As well as the 270 Grand Prix and 52 non-championship races that formed their staple diet, they were also to be seen in 35 Tasman Cup races, 152 major F5000 races, 43 British F1 series races, 116 South African series F1 races, 124 British hillclimbs, 29 Can-Am races and so much more.

4.5-litre/1.5-litre s/c Formula 1 (1949-1953)

These F1 results were compiled by David McKinney and Adam Ferrington, as part of a project that David intended to reach from 1946 to the end of the 1950s. Since David's sad death, Adam and Allen have agreed that these pages will remain unaltered from now on, as a lasting testimony to David's expertise.
