Notes on the cars:
- BMW F270 [F2 70-1] (Jacky Ickx): Jacky Ickx' regular car in 1970, F2-70-1 won at the Salzburgring and at Tulln-Langenlebarn that season. With F2-70-2 and F2-70-3 both racing the following day, the car that Bell wrecked in practice at Hockenheim in October is presumably F2-70-1.
- Brabham BT30  (Jack Brabham): New to John Coombs Racing and entered for Jackie Stewart and Jack Brabham in F2 in 1970. Fitted with a Cosworth FVC for Stewart to win the 1970 JAF GP. To Mike Goth September 1970 for three late-season F2 races. To Silvio Moser (Lugano, Switzerland) for F2 in 1971 up to Rouen in late June, after which Moser had a BT36. The next stages of this car's life are unknown but a 1996 Coys auction catalogue said that it had been used in hillclimbs until bought by the then current owner in 1976. The car was sold after the auction to Jay Galpin and then on to Bob Baker.
- Brabham BT30  (Derek Bell): New to Tom Wheatcroft and entered for Derek Bell to race in F2 in 1970. To Jeremy Richardson and raced in F2 and libre during 1971. Then to Alex Seldon (Ripley, Surrey) and raced in libre through 1972 and 1973. Advertised by Seldon in February 1974 and next owner unknown but the FVA was removed and the car stored in a dry barn until 1984 when Ted Walker bought it via John Harper. Sold to Lincoln Small in 1986 and used for many years in historic racing.
- March 702  (Ronnie Peterson): The first production March 702 was used by Chris Amon in the opening race as part of Malcolm Guthrie's team and then by Ronnie Peterson for the rest of the season. Unseen in 1971 but presumably the "ex-Peterson" car that Geoff Inglis (Yatton, Somerset) used for sprinting in 1972. Advertised by Inglis in February 1973 when it still had its FVA engine. To Spencer Elton (Westbury, Wiltshire) and sold by him to Dave Harris for sprints in 1973. Then back to Elton and next to Philip Anstruther (Bristol) who ran it in sprints in 1974. Anstruther sold it back to Elton yet again and it was advertised by him in March 1975. Next seen when advertised from Birmingham in 1981 as an "abandoned sprint and hillclimb project" and then from Devon in 1983. Reappeared in 1985 when raced by Ian Giles in HSCC events when its papers said it had previously been used by Dave Harris in hillclimbs. Then to Simon Brien in Ireland in 1986. A car with this chassis number displayed at Anderstorp in 2008. Such a car auctioned by Bonhams at Monaco in May 2004 with a comment that it had been displayed at the Paris Salon in 2003, fixed to the ceiling.
- Brabham BT30  (Vittorio Brambilla): Entered by Scuderia Jolly Club for Andrea De Adamich and Pino Pica in F2 in early 1970, then entered by either North Italian Racing or Scuderia Ala d'Oro for Vittorio Brambilla for the rest of the season. Retained for 1971 and entered by Scuderia Ala d'Oro for Vittorio Brambilla until the Nürburgring in early May when Brambilla crashed heavily. The car was not seen again until 1991 when it was on display at the Monza Museum. Nothing more known.
- Lotus 69 [69.F2.2] (Tetsu Ikuzawa): New to Tetsu Ikuzawa and raced in F2 in 1970. In early 1971, Ikuzawa was said by Autosport to have "sold his 69 of last year to an Irishman and replaced it with a new one". That was thought to be the car John Pollock drove in 1971, but a later advert revealed that his car was the ex-Rollinson 1971 car, not a 1970 car. Ikuzawa's 1970 Lotus 69 appears to have gone to Norimitsu Urushihara in Japan, who raced an "ex-Ikuzawa" Lotus 69 in 1971 and 1972. Subsequent history unknown.
- Brabham BT30  (Alistair Walker): To Alistair Walker Racing for Walker himself to race in F2 in 1970 and the first part of 1971. Sold to Tommy Reid in Ireland but not used by him and with dealer Bobby Howlings (Congleton, Cheshire) by July 1971. Used by Howlings in libre from July to September 1971 and then to George Dudley and appeared at two libre races, the last in May 1972, but did not start either race. Subsequent history unknown but likely to be the "ex-Alistair Walker" BT30 with 1600cc FVA advertised from Witney, Oxfordshire in March 1976. Later owners of BT30-26 have traced it back to 1978, when Peter Robinson (Studley, Warwickshire) was running it in hillclimbs. Robinson had acquired it with a FVA but it dropped a valve so he replaced it with a BDA. He retired it at the end of 1979 and transferred the engine into the BT29X which he then ran until he retired. The engineless BT30 was bought for Julian Majzub (Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire) by his father at the end of 1979 and was later joined by the BT29X to acquire parts that belonged to the BT30.
- March 702 [5-2] (Xavier Perrot): Xavier Perrot's car is recorded by Autosport early in 1970 as chassis 702-4 but is called 702-5 after its crash at Hockenheim in June. Race Report sees it as 702-5 throughout the season so 702-4 references are assumed to be typos. Like many of the 702s, this car disappears after the 1970 season but a history on race-cars.com states that it ran in the Canadian FB series and then became a CSR car in 1987 with a Cosworth BDD engine and raced on until 1994. That would suggest it was the car raced by Frank and Tim Simpson in FB in 1972. It appeared on race-cars.com in June 2000.
- Brabham BT30  (Ernesto "Tino" Brambilla): Entered by Scuderia Picchio Rosso for Enzo Corti in F2 in the first few races of 1970, then reappeared in June, entered by either North Italian Racing or Scuderia Ala d'Oro for Tino Brambilla for the rest of the season. Returned in 1971, still entered by Scuderia Ala d'Oro for Tino Brambilla but raced once by Vittorio Brambilla at Pau in April and crashed. The car was reported to have been written off.
- BMW F270 [F2 70-2] (Jo Siffert): The second F270 was Jo Siffert's usual car, winning at Rouen in June. Dieter Quester then swapped to this car for the last two races of the season, at Hockenheim and at Neubiberg, winning both.
- Brabham BT30  (Peter Westbury): To FIRST Racing for Peter Westbury to drive in F2 in 1970. Retained very briefly at the start of the 1971 season and then sold to Japan. This is presumably the car fitted with a Mitsubishi Colt R39B engine and raced by Hiroshi Kazato in 1971, by Hiroshi Fushida in 1972 and by Kiyoshi Misaki at the Singapore GP in 1973 but as yet this is only speculation. Nothing more known.
- Brabham BT30  (Rolf Stommelen): To Eifelland Wohnwagenbau (Mayen, Germany) for Rolf Stommelen to race in F2 in 1970. Driven later in the season by Hermann Unold and Willi Deutsch. Retained for early 1971 and raced by Stommelen and Hans-Joachim Stuck. To Hansruedi Wittwer (Diepoldsau, Switzerland) and raced in German, Swiss, French and Italian hillclimbs in 1972 and 1973. Wittwer then acquired a newer BT40, and the BT30 was sold to Janos Kiss (Lustenau, Austria), and raced in hillclimbs around central Europe between 1974 and 1977, mainly in Austria and Germany. The car was eventually put into storage, remaining there until 2002 when the container was vandalised. Sold to Rolf Gomeringer (Meßstetten, Germany), offered for sale by Coys at Essen 2002 and bought after the sale by Steve Worrad. To Simon Langman (Worthing, West Sussex) 2005, and raced in the HSCC Classic Racing Car Championship from 2006 to 2008.
- Brabham BT30  (François Mazet): Sold new to Rodney Bloor's Sports Motors (Manchester) Ltd and run for François Mazet in F2 in 1970. Raced also by Gerry Birrell once at the end of the season. Then to Monegasque Lionel Noghès and raced under the Écurie Monaco banner in F2 in 1971. Last mentioned in June 1972 when the gearbox was stolen from the car while it was in storage at Lenham Hurst (Folkestone, Kent). Subsequent history unknown. The Noghès family are closely connected to the ruling family of Monaco and it is possible that the car has remained in the principality as part of The Private Collection of Antique Cars of H.S.H. Prince Rainier III.
- Brabham BT30  (Carlos Reutemann): New to Automovil Club Argentina for Carlos Reutemann to race in F2 in 1970 and 1971. Last seen at Rouen June 1971, after which it was replaced by a BT36. It was then sent to Argentina to be used as a race school car but the details of its life remain unknown. Found and acquired by Richard Vignoles (Argentina) in 2008. To Carlos Lioni (Argentina) 2009.
- Brabham BT30  (Tim Schenken): Sold new to Rodney Bloor's Sports Motors (Manchester) Ltd and run for Tim Schenken in F2 in 1970. Raced also by Gerry Birrell once at Hockenheim. Sold to Ian Bannen and entered by him for Cyd Williams to drive in a few F2 races at the start of 1971 but sold mid 1971 to Bill Creasy (Dunstable, Bedfordshire), fitted with a Broadspeed twin cam and used in Libre and Formula Atlantic races, mainly at Silverstone. Raced again briefly by Creasy at the start of 1973 then sold to David Howes in part-exchange for a Mustang. Next seen with Simon Riley (Edmonton, North London) and hill-climbed in 1973, when it was reported as having a FVA engine again, and in early 1974. Subsequent history unknown but a car claiming this identity was bought from Manchester dealer Bob Fearnley by William Southern (Blackpool) some time in the 1970s. Southern kept the car until selling it to dealer John Brannigan in the mid/late 1980s. To Jim Gathercole 1989. Restored and sold to Nicolas Moreau de Melen (Belgium) 2007. To Bernd and Michael Quitzow (Germany) 2009.

Individual sources for this event
Autosport (17 Sep 1970 pp11-13) gives only two chassis numbers, Vittorio Brambilla's Brabham BT30-22 and Alistair Walker's BT30-26, but mentions a brand new Tecno ("hadn't even completed a lap of testing") for Cevert, as promised, while Regga "was in his Mantorp-winning car" and Jean Max had Cevert's old car. Reuteman had the ex-Calderella Brabham BT30. BMW had their usual cars but Hahne declined to drive his.
