Carlos Sainz didn't do anything with his helment after his car broke a few metres from the end of the 1999 Rally GB. It was Luis Moya that threw his helmet through the Toyota's rear window !

Ray Allen won the race, don't what his job was back then but I think he's working as an instructor somewhere now... Silverstone maybe ? He did some F5000 races back in the early 1970s.

I think Ray Allen was a soldier at the time. I do know that Malcolm Payne who finished second in the inagural race was a duck farmer from Norfolk.

Remaining on a Formula Ford note:

Who was the first person to retire from a Formula Ford race?

From the Formula Ford Book, the results of the first-ever FF race (all in Lotuses):

1st 94 R. Allen (Motor Racing Stables Ltd), 10"04.4
2nd 103 M. Payne (Jim Russell Racing Drivers' School), 10"10.2
3rd 105 C. Bourgoigne (JRRDC), 10"10.8
4th 104 M. Fletcher (JRRDC), 10"12.0
5th 98 P. Wardle (MRS), 10"12.6
6th 85 E. Patrick (MRS), 10"13.4

George Lewis led the first lap, but spun out to be the first-ever FF retirement (if you don't count S. Sherman, who was pushed off the grid). Otherwise it was Allen all the way.

Correct. I guess in the tradition of things, you get to set the next question.

Which World Championship driver has the lowest "best finish"? I.e. Ghinzani's best finish is 5th, Davidson's is 11th...who has the worst?
