Hope it is temporary..Otherwise, it wld be the very sad loss of the most documented site for statistics regarding F2,F3,F Junior, Targa Florio, Le Mans  ...

One of the oldest web site, it started quite two decades ago


http://www.formula2.net/

The F2 register was used to calculate 1967 F2 relative strength of drivers and packages, for instance.

Alls contributors to motor racing history refered and relied on this site , when there was  a topic or a dispute about statistics

Is someone at SRMZ in contact with Stefan Ornerdal, the site owner, from Sweden ?

It's still cached on Google's servers, if someone has the knowhow to download full websites I suggest they'll do it. It would be a shame to loose this resource.

The Wayback machine will keep their snapshots, not sure about the google cache. Thing is that WB doesn't archive pictures afaik.

I have now downloaded the complete site. 6000+ pages. It is uploaded to The Fastlane server, though I won't release the link unless it looks like formula2.net isn't coming back.
