Notes on the cars:

  1. Brabham BT30 [14] (Graham Birrell): Sold new to Ecurie Ecosse and run for Graham Birrell in F2 in 1970. Also raced once by Peter Gethin and by Richard Attwood later in the season. To Peter Westbury early 1971 and raced in several F2 races (also raced once by Dieter Quester) until the team's BT36 was delivered. Sold to Dunnett's Garage, converted to F/Atlantic specification and entered for Ronnie Mackay in libre and F/Atlantic in 1971 and 1972, run by MRE. To Chong Boon Seng for south east Asian racing in 1973 and used by him until 1976. Then to Del Schlomer and raced by him and by Cherie Schlomer in 1977 and 1978. To Wybe Valkema around 1980 and retained to 1982. Then to Australia and with Brian Wilson by 1988. Wilson sold it to Art Valdez (Torrance, CA) and from Valdez it returned to Australia when he sold it to Bob Ilich (Perth, WA) in 2010.
  2. Brabham BT23C [11] (Brian Cullen): New to Winkelmann Racing for Alan Rees to race in F2 in 1968 but also raced by Gerhard Mitter at Hockenheim in October. To Bill Ivey for 1969 and entered for him in F2 races by Paul Watson Racing Organisation (PWRO). To Brian Cullen (Limerick, County Limerick, Ireland) in August 1969 and he raced it in a F5000 race and in libre in 1969, in European F2 events in 1970, and at Bogotá in early 1971. Entered by Irish Racing Team for Lingard Goulding at Mondello Park in July 1971 and then maybe the BT23C raced by Ted Shanahan (Dublin) over the next two months and also possibly the BT23C raced by Roy Courtney (Lisburn, County Antrim, Northern Ireland) in local clubmans/club specials racing in 1972. To Harold McGarrity (Belfast) for 1973 and raced in Formula Ireland with a 1.6-litre Holbay engine. To Paddy Heron for 1974 and raced in clubmans and in Formula Atlantic. For sale from Glengormley in 1975 and entered by Belfast car dealer Noel Crymble for Chris Stanfield to race at Kirkistown a couple of times until the Holbay pushrod engine blew up. Next seen when bought from Ireland by Mark Raymont who still had it in the late 1980s with a Holbay engine and Hewland Mk 8 gearbox. Sold to Steve Worrad of Maverick Motorsport around 2002 and restored by him. For sale by Maverick in 2004 and sold the following year via the Bonhams auction at RAF Hendon to Joe Willenpart (Scheibbs, Austria).
  3. Brabham BT30 [4 as '7'] (Giancarlo Gagliardi): Sold to Frank Williams Racing Cars and entered for Malcolm Guthrie in two F2 races at Zolder and Monza in June 1969, and for Derek Bell at Vallelunga at the end of the season. Next seen in June 1970 when entered by Scuderia Jolly Club for Giancarlo Gagliardi but now given as chassis BT30-7 instead of BT30-4. For Silvio Moser at Bogotá early 1971 and at Mallory Park in March; then entered by Scuderia Ala d'Oro for several drivers in the first half of the season. Unknown after June 1971. A car with chassis number BT30-7 with Fabio Montani (Italy) in 1997. This car was imported to the US by Dave Irwin (Colorado) in 1998 and restored. Then via Barry Marquart (Kansas) 1999, Peter McLaughlin (Hannover, NH) 2005, James King (Belleville, IL) 2006 and Richard Scott (Ohio) 2007 to Brad Baker (Oshawa, Ontario) in 2009.
  4. Tecno 68/F2 [T00 270] (Gianpaolo Benedini): The "usual car" of Carlo Facetti in 1968 and in the Argentine Temporada at the end of that season. Entered by Scuderia Picchio Rosso for Facetti at a couple of races in 1969 and for Gianpaolo Benedini on four occasions in 1970. Subsequent history unknown.
  5. Brabham BT30 [22] (Pino Pica): 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.
  6. Brabham BT23 [2] (Vittorio Brambilla): Motor Racing Developments entry for Denny Hulme in 1967 and probably the car used by Jack Brabham for a few races in July and August after his usual car was sold to Mick Mooney. Then raced by Frank Gardner in September. Taken to the Tasman series for Denny Hulme after he had wrecked BT23-5 at Pukekohe. Then sold to Italy and a Scuderia Picchio Rosso entry in 1968 but only once for Tino Brambilla in July and once for Enzo Corti in October. Retained by by Scuderia Picchio Rosso for Corti a full season in 1969 and again for Vittorio Brambilla at the start of 1970. Last seen in July 1970. Subsequent history unknown but a chassis was found in Switzerland in 2005 that was believed to be "ex-Brambilla". The frame does appear to be the one raced by Tino Brambilla in 1968, but in 2015 this car was being advertised as BT23/1.

Individual sources for this event

Autosport (25 Jun 1970 p19) crammed their report into a corner but did mention that Jolly Club had the ex-Guthrie 1969 BT30 for Gagliardi ('suitably modified to comply with this year's rules') and Scuderia Brescia Corse had the ex-Facetti Tecno 68 for Benedini. Salvati had a works Tecno for his F2 debut (he won) and Frey's Tecno was described as a Tecno 69 on this occasion.
