Notes on the cars:

  1. Chevron B17 [17.70.09] (Carlo Scarambone): New to Carlo Scarambone (Italy) and raced in Italian F3 in 1971, initially with a Novamotor Ford twin cam and later using an Alfa Romeo engine. Retained for 1972 but Scarambone was rarely able to qualify for race finals that season. Subsequent history unknown.
  2. March 713M [1] (Clois Avigni): New to Eifelland Wohnwagenbau for Hannelore Werner to race in German and European F3 in 1971. To Heinz Lange for 1972 but sold early in the season to Scuderia Italia and raced by Piergiovanni Tenani, Clois Avigni and "Shangri-Là" (Romano Martini) in Italian F3 that year. Sold to Livio Franzoso for 1973 and continued to be raced by him in Italian F3 until the end of 1975. Franzoso entered the car as a 733 so it may well be one of the unidentified 733s raced in Italy after that date. History then unknown until Marcel Biehl (Mönchengladbach, Germany) posted pictures of the unrestored car on Facebook in November 2013. Immaculately restored and raced by Biehl in 2015.
  3. Chevron B15 [F3-69-14] (Adolfo Corazza): A third Chevron B15 sold via Oliver Speight to Jolly Club in Italy and raced in 1969 by Giuseppe Mariella. It is not known how Jolly Club's three B15s were used in 1969 but the first time they definitely had three cars was at Enna on 3 August. Raced by Sandro Cinotti in 1970, again for Jolly Club. Retained by Cinotti for 1971 and fitted with a 1600cc Wainer Alfa Romeo engine for the new F3. To Adolfo Corazza mid-1971 and retained for 1972. Subsequent history unknown.
  4. March 713M [5] (Antonio Stalfieri): New to Cavan Riley and raced in British F3 in 1971. Then to Antonio Stalfieri and raced in Italian F3 from 1972 to 1975. A car with this chassis number and an Italian history advertised by Luigi Moreschi Motorsport (Quingentole, Italy) in July 2015.
