EFDA/European Formula Ford Championship

Hey guys.
I've been looking around for some info on this championship on the web. But all I really found are one-liners in some driver's CVs. So I've got way too many blanks and question marks in the championship standings for my own good.

Here's what I got so far:

2001
1. Richard Göransson

2000
4. Jaroslav Janis

1999
1. Marcos Ambrose
3. Nicolas Kiesa
5. Kimi Räikkönen

1998
1. Derek Hayes
2. Jenson Button
3. Dan Wheldon

1997
4. Dan Wheldon

1996
3. Robert Lechner

1995
1. Patrice Gay or Nick Heidfeld ??

1994
1. Jonny Kane

1993
2. Marc Gene

1990
1. Jörg Müller

1981
2. Marc Duez

1980
1. Fernando Dias Ribeiro

1972
1. Hans Binder

1969
1. Gerry Birrell


As you can see. Not much found.

so... I turn to the experts to fill in some blanks. Anyone?

2000 was won by Mark Taylor I think Robert Dahlgren was second.
Also I think we were 4th in 99 with Mark again.

The series was run initially by Nick Brittan and I seem to remember Tony Dron was involved (maybe he was Nick Brittan’s assistant at the time). I just spoke to Colin Vandervell, who is blessed with an incredible memory, and who told me a bit about the 1970 season.
The series was sponsored by Johnson Wax. First prize was a F3 Lotus, with Holbay engine, and a full budget for 1971!
First round – Zandvoort. Nick Brittan would not let Colin enter as he considered him not experienced enough! Race was won by Tony Trimmer.
Second round – Zolder. Colin got in and finished 2nd, miles behind Claude Bourgoignie, thanks to a lot of cars dropping out/crashing etc.
Third round – Anderstorp. Colin won
Fourth round – Salzburgring. Colin won
Fifth round – Hockenheim. Colin finished 4th. The first 20 cars were inside 1”! No chicanes at the time! Colin describes the race as “highly dangerous”. He was in the lead for most of the race with Trimmer then the main pack caught them two laps from the end and they were swamped.
After Hockenheim there was a hill-climb in Switzerland, which Bourgoignie won.
Then at Imola Colin was 1.5” quicker than anyone in practise but Chapman arranged for a bunch of Lotus drivers to enter with instructions to take Colin out! At the first corner two Lotuses (Loti?) hit him, Mo Harness barrel rolled 15 times and ended up in a ditch, bits of his rear suspension ripping off one of Colin's brake lines.
Imola and Hockenheim were very very fast tracks at the time. Colin says he used a 25/25 (24/24?) top gear at these tracks, higher even than Silverstone.
Final was at Brands Hatch and Colin won again.
In the end Bourgoignie was champion by only 3 points by virtue of winning or being well placed every time. (This seems to contradict the record for 1970 given by David; but I think Colin would have remembered if he had won the championship!). He is sure he would have won if Brittan had let him into the first race.
Colin was of course driving his Merlyn (ex Emerson Fittipaldi, future Jody Schekter and Frank Sytner!). In those days FF ran on road tyres – Avon crossplies in the dry and Firestone radials in the wet (for the wealthier drivers!).

Funnily enough, I thought Bourgoignie before looking up my source, which gave the order as I posted.
Am perfectly happy to be corrected

Couple of names spring out for me; Mike Catlow still active in Historics (nice fellow too) and Peter Wardle rings a bell as still active?

I see you've got a big gap after 1981 through the rest of the 80's there Bezzen?

I have a suspicion Dave Coyne may have won an EFDA title around '84/85 for Van Diemen?

German driver; Uwe Schaefer also rings a bell from the mid 80's for some reason?

I also thought that JJ Lehto won a shortened version of the series in about 1986 or something as well?

Can anyone confirm (or blow away) any of these ideas?

Rather late, I have discovered this forum.
My name is Peter Finlay and I placed third in the EFDA/European Formula Ford Championship in 1973.
I returned to Australia at the end of that year as the UK and Europe looked like they were going "belly up". I raced in Australia for the next two years. In 1975 I was a member of the Grace Brothers-Levis Team and placed second (by 1 point) in the Australian FF Championship Series. After competing in the annual Bathurst 500 in a Ford Escort I retired and focused on home and business. In 1980 we purchased the Peter Wherrett Advanced Driving School and then started Peter Finlay's International Racing Drivers' School. Later we became the Antipodean agents for John Kirkpatrick's Jim Russell RDC. Later we started a division with several FFs which included the Mawer 004, an Elfin 600, a Van Diemen RF85 (an ex-Milldent- Malcolm Oastler/ Perry McCarthy FF 2000) and a Reynard . Later, an RF89 joined the team until the older-style cars were replaced with a pair of RF99 Zetec cars sourced from England and two RF98 Zetec which had been built up here in that configuration. We sold the school in 2010.
I returned to Hillclimbing in 1992 with the Mawer which I progressively developed with wider wheels, slicks, a Toyota supercharger and wings. Later a Toyota 4AG-ZE was fitted. I won the NSW state Hillclimb championship in 1994,5,and 6. In 1996 I brought out Alister Douglas-Osborn, Mike Pilbeam and the "works" MP 62-Vauxhall for the Australian HC titles at Bathurst and scored a very close second place to blown VW-engined single seater. The following year my wife, Gaye, and I spent a month in the UK and I drove the new Pilbeam MP82 at Curborough and Ben Boult's Pilbeam MP52-BDA at the 50th anniversary of the RAC British HC Championships at Shelsley Walsh in June. I then switched over to the MP82 co-driven by Ferrari aerodynamicist Willem Toet at Loton Park and Prescott where I placed third in the under 2 litre class behind Justin Fletcher and Willem.
Back in Australia I set up a March 77B with a supercharged 2 litre YBM for the local events. This car was not particularly successful, although I did lead the time-sheets at the last AHCC in which I participated in 2002.
I look back with great fondness to the FF events in which I drove in the UK in 1972 and in Europe the following year. The Palliser was eventually restored in the yellow and green Grace Bros colours and is owned by Brian Sampson in Melbourne.
After motor racing I learned to fly and reached commercial licence standard. I flew "bank document" in Beech Barons and Piper Aerostars. I turned to catamaran sailing and my last boat was a NACRA 5.0... a rocket ship with which I won some national championship races. I am a contributor to a leading aviation periodical in Australia with articles and photographs. My "day job" is usually that of an executive chauffeur carrying politicians, entertainers and captains of industry in Sydney. I also work as a driving specialist with Rick Bates Advanced Driving.
