Notes on the cars:

  1. 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.
  2. Brabham BT30 [22] (Vittorio Brambilla): 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.
  3. March 702 [5-2] (Xavier Perrot): Xavier Perrot's car is recorded by Autosport early in 1970 as chassis 702-4 but is called 702-5 after its crash at Hockenheim in June. Race Report sees it as 702-5 throughout the season so 702-4 references are assumed to be typos. Like many of the 702s, this car disappears after the 1970 season but a history on race-cars.com states that it ran in the Canadian FB series and then became a CSR car in 1987 with a Cosworth BDD engine and raced on until 1994. That would suggest it was the car raced by Frank and Tim Simpson in FB in 1972. It appeared on race-cars.com in June 2000.
  4. 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, Germany) and used in F2 in 1969, 1970 and 1971. According to later owner Oliver Heschl- Gillespie, the Tecno went to Bernd Burger (Rüsselsheim, Germany) and was converted to a Group 7 sports car using a KMW body as the "Burger P3", still with its 1600cc Cosworth FVA. Burger raced it in German national racing 1973 and 1974 after which the rolling chassis was sold to Karl Langjahr (Darmstadt, Germany) who fitted a Porsche engine and raced it in Interserie and national events as a Tecno-Porsche until 1980. Then to Bernd Becker (Idar-Oberstein, Germany) who only wanted the engine. The car continued via Kurt Henn (Idar-Oberstein, Germany) to Christina Berthold (Nürnberg, Germany) who raced it briefly with a new Porsche engine at which point it was sold to the Rosso Bianco Collection (Aschaffenburg, Germany). Sold by the museum in 1999, it passed via an Viennese Porsche dealer to Olivier Heschl-Gillespie (Vienna, Austria) who had it restored by Karl Langjahr to its 1974 specification.
  5. 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.
  6. 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).
  7. Brabham BT30 [21] (Ernesto "Tino" Brambilla): Entered by Scuderia Picchio Rosso for Enzo Corti in F2 in the first few races of 1970, then reappeared in June, entered by either North Italian Racing or Scuderia Ala d'Oro for Tino Brambilla for the rest of the season. Returned in 1971, still entered by Scuderia Ala d'Oro for Tino Brambilla but raced once by Vittorio Brambilla at Pau in April and crashed. The car was reported to have been written off. In 2006 Sepp Mayer (Germany) bought a car from Italy using this identity but with a 1972 BT35 chassis. He sold it to Bob Sellix (Rotherfield, East Sussex) around 2007 who sold it on to Jolyon Harrison (York) who was still running it in hillclimbs in 2014. The connection between this BT35 and the original BT30 is unknown.
  8. 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.
  9. Brabham BT30 [18] (Carlos Reutemann): New to Automovil Club Argentina for Carlos Reutemann to race in F2 in 1970 and 1971. Last seen at Rouen June 1971, after which it was replaced by a BT36. It was then sent to Argentina to be used as a race school car but the details of its life remain unknown. Found and acquired by Richard Vignoles (Argentina) in 2008. To Carlos Lioni (Argentina) 2009.

Individual sources for this event

Autosport (3 Sep 1970 pp38-39) mentions only a handful of chassis numbers: Reuteman had BT30-18 and BT30-19, Bruno Frey had his "1969 car (T00 402)" and Perrot had the Nurburgring winning 702-05. This latter number is different to the 702-4 given earlier in the year, implying that the new chassis he was reported as having for the 'Ring had a new chassis number as well. Or it could be a typo. Elsewhere, tems were using their usual cars.
