Notes on the cars:

  1. Brabham BT38C [18] (Allan McCully): New to Allan McCully and raced as part of the Australian International Racing Organisation (AIRO) in British F3 and some European events in 1972. Badly damaged on its debut at Silverstone in April but presumably repaired and the car driven by McCully at Monaco in mid-May. Then raced by Bill McGovern at Brands Hatch two weeks later, after which it was entered for McCully at Formula Atlantic races but did not appear. Reappeared at the end of July as an AIRO entry again but now driven by Irishman Damien Magee. This would be the "ex Magee" BT38C of Leif Spalding in Swedish F3 in 1973. Then with Thorbjörn Carlsson in 1975 and 1976. Subsequent history unknown.
  2. March 713M [4] (James Hunt): New to Sloan Marshall Garage and raced in F3 in 1971 by Tim Goss. Then likely to be the second 713M run in 1972 by Chris Marshall of Sloan Marshall Garage as Equipe La Vie Claire Internationale, with sponsorship from the French chain of health product stores. As lead driver Philippe de Henning is likely to have got the team's ex-works 713M, the ex-Goss 713M is thought to be the car raced by Jean-Claude Alzérat at the start of the season. It was then raced by James Hunt at Monaco and at Mallory Park in May when his factory 723 wasn't ready. Also raced later in the year by Jean-Pierre Jarier and Dave Brodie. Crashed by Alzérat at Thruxton in late October 1972 and not seen again.
  3. Brabham BT38C [12] (Alan Jones): New to Alan Jones and raced as part of the Australian International Racing Organisation in British F3 and some European events in 1972. The team often failed to arrive at races and finally vanished in June. In October, Jones' BT38C reappeared owned by Larry Sevitt and raced by London wheeler-dealer John MacDonald. Unknown in 1973 and may have been sold to the US as a Formula B car.
  4. March 723 [15] (Patrice Compain): To Hugues de Chaunac (Paris) and entered for Patrice Compain in F3 in 1972. Advertised by de Chaunac in November 1972. Subsequent history unknown.
  5. March 723 (Stan Mathews): New to Stan Mathews for F3 in 1972 but Mathews almost immediately ordered an Ensign instead. The March 723 was sold in September to F4 driver Nick Crossley who used it in F3 at the end of the 1972 season. Then retained by Crossley as a spare car for his team of new March 733s in 1973, and retained again for 1974. Crossley recalls converting it to take a BDA engine for libre racing at some point, and he kept it again for 1975. Sold for 1976 to John Day to use in libre racing.
  6. Royale RP11 [1] (Tom Pryce): Works F3 car entered by D.J. Bond Engineering for Tom Pryce and for Bev Bond at several races very late in the 1971 British F3 season. Raced by Tom Pryce in 1972 but wrecked at Monaco, which left Pryce with a broken leg. A new car was built up for Pryce but this prototype was evidently rebuilt because David Betts was racing this car in hillclimbs in 1973 and 1974. It next appeared in June 1977 when Don Manley (Brighton, Sussex) was having it converted to F4 specification, then a couple of years later with Rupert West in 1979, and when advertised by Bobby Howlings' AMCO in 1980. In May 1987, the prototype was with M J Youles (Smallfield, Surrey) who had almost completed its restoration, with the intention of racing it in the BRSCC Libre Championship. Subsequent history unknown.
  7. Brabham BT38C [11] (Peter Hull): New to Peter Hull for British F3 and selected European events in 1972, using Vegantune engines and sponsored by The Motor Auctions London and Derby. Its history after 1972 is a puzzle as Hull recalls selling it to Jimmy Fuller but Fuller's car in 1973 was described as being the former Chris O'Brien car. Unknown in 1973 and may have been sold to the US as a Formula B car.
  8. March 713M [9] (Philippe de Henning): New to Brendan McInerney as part of the new Team Rose Bearings with Baty Group team run by Chris Marshall. Also raced once by teammate James Hunt when his own car was being repaired. Retained by Marshall's Sloan Marshall Garages for 1972 and run under the Equipe La Vie Claire Internationale banner for French drivers. Believed to be the car raced by Philippe de Henning in 1972, but both of the team's 713Ms were described as ex-Hunt/McInerney. Unknown after October 1972.
  9. 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.
  10. Royale RP11 [2] (Val Musetti): New for Val Musetti (Twickenham) and raced in British F3 in 1972. Retained for 1973 until "written off" in an accident the week before the race at Oulton Park 20 April 1973. Musetti then took over the Reystan Racing Royale RP11A from Andy Sutcliffe, and future references to an ex-Musetti Royale would be to that car.
