Notes on the cars:

  1. Chevron B21 [B19 71-32] (John Watson): The last new B19 to appear in Europe, B19-71-32 was new for Red Rose Racing boss John Bridges to drive at Jarama 7 Nov 1971. It had the wider B21-spec chassis required to meet 1972 regulations so was retained by Red Rose Racing as a fourth entry in 1972. It was driven mainly by Bridges in 1972 but also by Niki Bosch, Paco Josa and John Watson in European 2-litre events. At the end of the 1972 season it was sold to Bobby Howlings and was almost certainly the car driven by Howlings and John Hine at Vallelunga 25 Mar 1973 and then by Hine at Paul Ricard 8 Apr 1973. The car then disappears from Howlings' Ember Racing team, possibly to Japan or possibly to fellow wheeler-dealer Tony Dean.
  2. Chevron B21 [72-2] (Trevor Twaites, Brendan McInerney): This car was sold to Trevor Twaites and raced by him and regular co-driver Brendan McInerney in European events throughout 1972. They continued to drive the Intertech-backed car in early 1973, their last event being the Nürburgring 1000 km in May, It was then acquired by Roy Johnson and Alan Stubbs who were to form Paulenco Racing and driven by José Uriarte at Vila Real in July 1973 and in the Angolan series. It was raced by Chris Skeaping in the Nürburgring 500 km in Sep 1973 and then by Uriarte at Nogaro and the Barcelona 400 km. It was sold to Stewart Chubb for 1974 and driven by Peter Long and others 1974-1975. It is then believed to have been sold to France.
  3. Lola T292 [HU40] (Richard Scott): Described consistently as the "prototype" T292, HU40 first appeared at Jarama 5 Nov 1972 where it was raced by Richard Scott. It was then Guy Edwards' works car throughout 1973 after which it was updated to T294 specification and sold by Lola to Martin Raymond for 1974. It went to Stewart Chubb for 1975 and continued to race in the European series. In 1976, Chubb sold the car to Steven Payne-Herbert and it was used in Can-Am and SCCA BSR racing until 1980. Payne-Herbert kept the car until 1989 when it was sold for vintage racing and, three owners later, it was being offered for sale by Grand Prix Classics in February 2011.
  4. Chevron B21 [72-7] (Niki Bosch): Red Rose Racing acquired two Chevron B21s for the start of the 1972 sports racing season, chassis B21-72-7 and B21-72-8. Of these, 72-7 was initially assigned to José Maria Juncadella and raced by him in the 2-litre championship. At Dijon in June, Juncadella took over 72-8 from John Hine, and the team's third driver Niki Bosch was promoted into 72-7. He raced the car for the remainder of the season, including the finale at Jarama in November. Subsequent history unknown, but likely to be the car that went to Henk Bosman.
  5. Lola T290 [HU17] (Fredy Grainal): The history of HU17 prior to September 1972 is unknown but the car was apparently new for Belgian Freddy Grainal. Used at Nürburgring 3 Sep 1972, Montjuich 8 October 1972 and Jarama 5 Nov 1972 as a Marcel van Hool entry. Raced again in 1973, winning two minor Belgian races. Last seen at Barcelona Oct 1973. Subsequent history unknown.
  6. Chevron B21 [72-26] (Martin Raymond): Bought relatively late in the 1972 season by Martin Raymond (London) to replace his Daren Mk. 3, B21-72-26 was used for the last three races of the European series and then, in upgraded B23 form, for the whole 1973 season. It was unused in 1974 and was advertised by Raymond in November that year. Bought by John Blanckley (London) for 1975 and raced by him and John Calvert that season, after which it was sold to Rolf Götz (Waldenbuch, Germany) and raced from 1976 to 1978, latterly described as a B26. For 1979, Götz bought Blanckley's newer B31 and the fate of the B21 is unknown. Between 1980 and 1982, a car with this identity was advertised by Bob Speak's Barrowford Garage (Nelson, Lancashire) but how it had got from southwestern Germany to Lancashire is unclear.
