Notes on the cars:

  1. Lola T212 [HU18] (Mario Casoni, Jo Bonnier): One of two cars delivered to Ecurie Bonnier and raced under the Scuderia Filipinetti banner. HU18 is identified by Sport Auto as Jo Bonnier's personal car and is likely to be the car used at Paul Ricard April 1972 by Claude Ballot-Léna. A surviving Bonnier invoice shows that HU18 was sold to Enzo Osella in May 1972 and a 2011 advert by Marcel Roks quotes a 1985 HVIF which identifies HU18 as the car then owned by Roberto Filannino and Pasquale Barberio. Barberio raced a 1300cc Lola T212-Abarth in Italian domestic racing in 1973 and the Roks advert says he kept the car until 1976. Later owners are given as a Mr. Girollami 1976, Stefano Sebastiani 1982, Victor Myette 1994, Andy Wolfe (Cambridge, UK) 1998 and the current owner in 2001.
  2. Chevron B19 (Giovanni Alberti): One of a number of Chevron B19s supplied to Eris Tondelli in Italy. The ownership and usage of these cars is currently unknown.
  3. Martin BM8 [1] (Brian Martin): The Martin BM8 was Brian Martin's regular car for the 1971 season and was then sold to David Good for hillclimbs in 1972. Good came very close to winning the class-based Leaders title, only to crash on his first class run at the final round of the championship. The BM8 was raced by Richard Brown in hillclimbs in 1974 and 1975, and by John Stuart in 1976 before fading from view for a few years. It was with Simon Phillips in 1982 and then raced by Stoic Racing (Ian Harrower, John Piper and others) with a BDX engine in 1983-84. It passed through the hands of Ian Barrowman and Mike Campbell-Cole in the 1990s before landing with Howard Matloff (San Diego, CA) by 1998.
  4. Chevron B19 (Stefano Buonapace): Stefano Buonapace raced one or more Chevrons from 1971 to 1973 but it currently appears that all were based on his original B19. His 1971 car was described as having either a 1600cc Alfa Romeo or 2-litre Abarth engine but over the next two seasons he generally ran in the 1300cc class in Italian domestic races. His "B21" or "B23" in 1973 ran with a Armaroli-tuned Ford 1300cc engine. The subsequent history of Buonapace's car is not yet known.
  5. Chevron B19 [71-16] (Gérard Larrousse): Jo Siffert for Gerard Larrousse 1971 - Hans Affentranger 1972-1977 - to Dieter Pflüger 1978 - Peter-Paul Dürig 1983 - Richard and Suzy George 2000. For a more detailed history see Chevron B19 71-16.
