Fireball Class Archive & History

Archive and historical information about the class may be found in this section. It is under development so please re-visit from time to time!
Over the last 5-6 years very good progress has been made assembling an archive of magazines published by UKFA and its predecessor organisation. Special thanks are due to Steven Schrier, Tony Procter and George Whitchurch for back-filling some of the very substantial older gaps in the records! We are still looking for a handful of the early editions of 'Fireball Bulletin' (the oldest held is No.3 dated March 1964) and in some cases the copies we have from the early years are either defaced or are not originals so if you do have any that you would be prepared to donate to the archive please let us know.
January 2017 Update : We are missing full results lists for the UK Nationals for the following years: 1963, 1964, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1972, 1974, 1976, 1980, 1982, 1983, 1988 and 2001. If you have a set please get in touch!
If you have any material that fills known gaps in UKFA's records or that you think may be of interest please contact the Archivist at firstname.lastname@example.org
