Notes on the cars:
- 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.
- March 702  (Malcolm Guthrie): Malcolm Guthrie ran 702-2 through the 1970 season but the car was not seen again after that season. It may have been sold via dealer Spencer Elton at some point with 702-1.
- 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 used for sprinting in 1972. History thereafter unclear as there appear to have been two 702s running in sprints and hillclimbs. 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.
- 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.
The identification of individual cars in these results is based on the material presented elsewhere in this site and may in some cases contradict the organisers' orginal results.
