PostSubject: Greatest driver never to win the World title.    Tue Mar 10, 2015 7:08 am

Trying to generate a little debate in the closed season but looking at some dire responses to other posts not expecting much.

So who do you think is the greatest driver never to win the Brisca F1 World Championship?

Just three will do.

I'm going for

175 Gyn Pursey
306 Mick Noden
4 Dan Johnson (PSCD)

Thinking of the current drivers only, the best not yet to have won imo are:

Mat Newson
Dan Johnson
Paul Hines
And my tip for 2015 Miick Sworder.

Bezz 260 easily then
471
422
306

No Dan Johnson on my list though as I personally consider him a 1 time world champion due to his World Cup win.

Mick Noden - 3 podium finishes plus the infamous 1973 Harringay situation.
Dave Berresford - 4 podium finishes.
Brian Powles - 2nd in 1981 and taken out of the lead in 1979 by an overseas backmarker in a car supplied by the eventual winner !

What was the Harrigay situation Dave?
Obviously slightly younger than you so before my time.

I think you will find we were born in the same year !!

He had hit a barrel at a meeting earlier in the season which instead of being empty as per the rules was full of water and did extensive damage to his engine. He vowed never to race there again and despite qualifying on the front row, making him one of the pre race favourites, he stuck to his guns and didn't race.

Richie Ahern
Bobby Burns
Harry Smith
The list could go on and on as many drivers who have graced the ovals on a less frequent basis (in inferior cars/low budget) and not stuck in peoples memories.

I think the clue Dave was in the first line of the thread.

Who is th greatest driver to never win the Brisca F1 World Championship.

Obviously if I'd wanted replies about F2 drivers ( which of course I wouldn't ), I would have slightly expanded on my initial question but as F2 racing never has and probably never will interest me that much I chose to leave it out.

👍😋

Personally, I'd say Dave Berresford is the greatest driver never to win the World Final.

Up until a few years ago, I'd have said Paul Harrison, then Dave.

Great topic, BTW!

My apologies for not fully digesting the first post, although the thread title doesn't specify a formula.

PS Conrad Self raced Saloons not F2, although he did actually race F1 for a short time so it could be a valid answer !!
