Notes on the cars:

  1. Lola T360 ['AU1'] (John Davis): Chassis number assigned to describe a T360 sold by Lola in 1974 for use in the Australian F2 series, though the car does not carry a plate. The car seems to have been built as the jig model for the T360 series but was dismantled and never raced in the UK, so is not the works prototype car raced by Richard Scott and Ken Bailey in 1974. Sold to Andrew Meidecke and raced through 1977 in Australian F2, then to John Davis for the same series in 1978.
  2. Brabham BT35 [8] (John Millard): Chassis number given for Ed Reeves's car in Autosport report of Arco Trophy race at Castle Combe, April 12, 1971, where the car debuts [AS 15 Apr 1971 p20]. Later run by Reeves for Dave Morgan, and retained into 1972 when it wins the Euro F2 round at Mallory Park, and Reeves uses it in Atlantic races. Sold to John Millard in Australia in 1973.
