Notes on the cars:
- Brabham BT23C  (Graham McRae): The prototype BT23C was used at the end of the 1967 season by Jack Brabham and Frank Gardner and then sold to Frank Williams for Picko Troberg to drive, but not start, at Hockenheim in April 1968. It was then used briefly in F3 by Harry Stiller but wasn't seen again until October 1968 when Piers Courage took it over for the Albi F2 race, his regular BT23C/07 having been "sold to Tasmania" (Autosport 25 Oct 1968 p14).
- BMW F269 [F2 69-1] (Jo Siffert): The first F269 to appear is called "F2/4" by Autosport at Zolder but it seems evident from later events that it was F2-70-1. it was raced by Gerhard Mitter, Jo Siffert, Dieter Quester and Hubert Hahne before Hahne wrecked in in practice at Enna-Pergusa in August. It was not seen again.
- Brabham BT23  (Werner "Noddy" Lindermann): Gerhard Mitter's Brabham BT23 is incorrectly identified as chassis BT23-9 by Autosport (18 Aug 1967 p274).
- Tecno 68/F2 [T00 286] (Roland Binder): Bought by Charles Vögele for Silvio Moser (Lugano, Switzerland) to race in European F2 and Swiss Championship events in 1968. Also taken to the Argentine Temporada at the end that year. Sold to Roland Binder (Eßlingen, Switzerland) and used in F2 in 1969, 1970 and 1971. Also driven by Freddy Amweg at minor German and Swiss events in 1971. Raced by Amweg in Swiss Championship events in 1972, competing in the 1600cc Group 9 class still with the car's original FVA engine. Subsequent history unknown.

Individual sources for this event
Autosport (13 Jun 1969 pp8-11) gives chassis numbers for all cars present, including the Lola T102s (F2/1/68 and F2/2/68) and the new 1969 Dornier-built BMW (F2/4). Rindt's car is given as 59/F2/19, not the 59/F2/21 as stated earlier in the year. Perrot "was having his first outing with the little-used ex-Jorge Cupiero BT23C/17, which replaced his old BT23 written off at the Nurburgring by a Porsche". Werner Lindermann's car wa given as BT23/9 and fellow German Roland Binder "was having his first race in the ex-Silvio Moser Tecno" 68/F2 T00286.
