The website Grand Prix History has been in existence since May 22, 1997. For much of that time it has been a little known secret tucked in a small corner of the World Wide Web. Lovingly constructed step by step it is now 200+ pages in length or is that girth? It is still one of the few Formula 1 sites that attempts to go beyond the statistics and describe what it was really like. Its motto is still: "The history of Grand Prix racing through the lives of its greatest drivers, people and events." In the last few months Grand Prix History has started to garner some notice and it is with pride that I share this with you, the readers.

F1 Racing For all those who thought a nostalgic wallow involved watching an old Arrows negotiate a chicane, think again. For such a state-of-the-art, buzzword-compliant medium, the Net actually does the history bit surprisingly well nowhere more so than at Grand Prix History ( There's an enormous amount of information archived here - documenting the teams, drivers and stories of F1's past; all beautifully written, superbly designed and generously hyperlinked.

Grand Prix History - The Story of Speed
It all began in 1894, when 21 horseless carriages raced 78 miles from Paris to Rouen - and the first Grand Prix was won at the exhilarating speed of 10mph. A lot of tyre has screeched over the tarmac since then, and a good few of the marks are carefully logged here. Great models of past and present are finely drawn and described. There is a breathless account of the 1953 French Grand Prix, when the brash young novice Mike Hawthorn passed Argentine champion Juan Fangio on the last bend, to win by one second. The greats are lined up in a gallery of potted biographies. At present, the chequered flag comes down on Grand Prix History in 1970 - but it evidently is "To be continued..."

He's an obsessed Formula 1 racing fan who has put up an extraordinary gift to the rest of the world: this incredible site. You can read about the history of this primarily European sport, as well as profiles of its heroes, its cars, and the races. This is a meticulously researched site that has just enough graphics, that makes imaginative use of tables, and is pleasing to the eyes. I wouldn't hesitate to send my child here if he or she had a report to produce on Formula 1 racing. I ended up spending an hour here myself.
