Non-Championship races

Postby GV27 » Thu Oct 13, 2016 4:53 am

I'm pretty sure these are hard to find and I'm not entirely sure how TV contracts worked regarding these but it would be interesting if it was possible to find some of these. Things like the Race of Champions at Brands Hatch, the Dino Ferrari Grand Prix at Imola 1979, etc.

I could provide a list of Non-Championship races if necessary. I admit it's a niche subject, though, so the effort-reward ratio might not be particularly good. On the other hand, as far as "documentation" goes, those would be fantastic items to have.

As a reference, the last Non-Championship F1 race ever was the Race of Champions at Brands Hatch 1983. The few years before that had only a few of these and they might have been broadcast...

It sound interesting.
I didn't know about these. Can you tell me some of them?
I don't have them but maybe I could have a look....

Earlier than 1964, things get a bit crazy with over ten non-championship races per season and I feel it must be rather difficult to get them... assuming they were ever broadcast. Either way, if you guys want, I can prepare the whole list from 1950 to 1963 but I'm not sure if there's anything to be found there.

Wait until I mention some of the non-championship races of the 50's. There are years with 25 or 30 non-championship races, some of them on the same weekends as others. It's insane. :lol:

There was also the Tasman Series in Australia and New Zealand at the end of the sixties where drivers like Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Bruce McLaren, Jackie Stewart won races.
In Youtube there is a pair of full races.


To GV27, nice nick remembering Gilles :P .

If we're talking Tasman Series, we can't forget the South African F1 championship or the British F1 championship (Aurora F1)!

Glad you noticed, O5C4R! :lol:

Of course I can't forget the Aurora F1 Championship since I'm Spaniard and there was a Spanish Champion, Emilio de Villota in 1980. :lol:
