Notes on the cars:
- Tecno 68/F2 [T00 306] (François Cévert): New at the December 1968 Argentine Temporada as a works car for Jo Siffert but likely to have been the "brand new" spare car available for Clay Regazzoni at Vallelunga in October. Then a works entry for François Cévert in F2 in 1969, winning at Reims in June. Entered by Jolly Club for Giancarlo Gagliardi at two F2 races early in 1970 and then to Hervé Bayard for hillclimbs later in 1970. Bayard's car was described as "ex-Regazzoni" and a 1969 car but identified by later owner Fred Marquet as chassis T00 306. Used in the 1971 French hillclimb series by Bayard with 1600cc FVA and 1800cc FVC engines. Then to Daniel Gache for 1972 and raced in the 1600cc G9 class. Unknown after the end of 1972 until acquired by Marquet from a M. Rabanel (Toulon, France) in 1987. Retained by Marquet in 2009.
- Brabham BT23  (Enzo Corti): Denis Hulme's regular 1967 F2 Brabham is identified as BT23-2 by Autosport (18 Aug 1967 274) where it mentions that the car has now gone to Mick Mooney in Ireland. It appears that this is a mistake - Jack's BT23-1 had gone to Mooney for driver Tommy Reid. At Keimola, Autosport (8 Sep 1967 p414) says Gardner is driving BT23-2.
- Tecno 68/F2 [T00 304] (Nanni Galli): A brand new Tecno-FVA taken to the Argentine Temporada in December 1968 for local driver Andrea Vianini. Brought back into the factory Tecno team for 1969 and driven by Nanni Galli in the 1969 F2 series. Taken over by Clay Regazzoni at the Albi GP in September 1969 and crashed into the Armco on the opening lap of the race. Not seen again.

Individual sources for this event
Autosport (25 Apr 1969 pp10-12) did not give chassis numbers but reported whether drivers were in their regular cars. The only uncertainty would be the number of Beltoise's MS7.
