This completes Patrick's Rating System findings: 13 decades of motor racing published over 14 volumes, 1894-2016. The 15th volume in the set is his 'Explanatory Chapters' (thesis). Two forthcoming volumes that he completed are 'Further Analysis' (including his Six Criteria for Driver Dominance) and his 'Season Summary Tables' (appendix). These last two volumes bring his Rating System set up to 17 volumes. They will be released shortly.

I am continuing to publish my father's Grand Prix Rating System based on his work (none of it is mine). His 'Explanatory Chapters' are temporarily unavailable, pending implementation of a few corrections that he had pencilled into the margins.

His 1894-1899, 1900-1909, 1910-1919, 1920-1929, 1930-1939 and 1940-1940 volumes are also temporarily unavailable for the same reason.

I will post an update here as soon as they become available. Anyone who has bought a copy before this date, please could you get in touch with me: centuryofracing AT gmail.com.

His 2014-2016 Season Summaries will be made available shortly.
