Sue,

Ver=y nice record of Dick (and Mick's) legacy. So, just for the record, how many Championships have Dick's cars won?

Er....... I think you'll find that it was Peter 4..... 2001, 2006, 2007 and 2008. :+:

Did Richard Crossman ever win it in Martin Kemp's Darvi..... and how about Gary er someone in the car that Tim Cousins now has?

Richard Crossman's best result was 4th in the championship. He had a pole position at Oulton but although he was front runner, I don't think he won a race with it.
It was also 4th in 1983 - it's first year when Dick had it. I think Dick had 4 wins that year and Mick was winning on the Brands GP circuit when it iced up.

It then had to wait 25 years before it won again, first race of the season (and first with the Newman Cam - £200 well spent) at Snetterton - second race it iced up. My best championship position is 5th.
The car seems to hit a peak about every 12 years. Roll on 2020,

Thats a great Idea, it will be a great publicity shoot for the formula as well to promote the resurgence of the cars and of course the Formula. With the 2 new falcons being built if ready I count 5 cars that did not race last year heading back for 2021.
