I am not sure how expensive regex is compared to string comparison (for this
type of query) but here's one using regex:
Query and output saved at:   http://www.s3space.com/?p=308

PREFIX foaf: <http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/>
SELECT *
WHERE
{
?x ?p "Grand Prix"@en.
FILTER regex(str(?p), "^http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1", "i")
}
limit 4

Excuse the top-post.

You can brutal about it in SPARQL 1.0 and use filter regex. Something like :

.. FILTER ( regex( str(?p), "/http:\/\/xmlns\.com\/foaf/") )

It is kinda nasty, but will do the trick!
