1958 FORMULA 2 RACE RESULTS

This series of races began on 3rd March 2008.

To give myself a break from the Avgas F.1 races, I decided to run, concurrently, a series for Formula 2 cars from the same year.

The impetus for this series came when I built my first resin bodied Cooper T.45 and realised that having made one, I could then make many more. The Cooper T.45 was the mainstay of F.2 racing in 1958 and at the time of setting up this new results page, I have nineteeen of them!

Most of the races I am running with these cars actually took place but I am adding several more races to make the series worthwhile.

That concludes the 1958 Formula 2 season. There have been 23 races over a period of 27 months. Some of the cars will not be seen again but many will simply move straight to the new 1959 series of races which should begin towards the back end of 2010.
