RACE RESULTS - 1968 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

From 1968 on, I began to keep a record of the overall times of the cars. Initially this was done using a stop-watch that timed to 1/20th of a second. Therefore, the next few season's results will show the ACTUAL time that the cars took to complete the races, in seconds.

Midway through 1968 my family moved house. Due to the time it took to get everything organised in my new room, I had to cut the season's races short; therefore 1968 consists of only 6 races or half a season.
