Does anybody know which events counted towards the South African championships in the 1950s and 1960s, and how the full results can be disentangled? It appears that scratch classes for the championships were frequently run within handicap races.

Does anybody have final championship tables for the F.I.M. Coupe d`Endurance for all or any of the years during the 1960s. It is also proving difficult to reliably establish the fixture list for each year.
