Notes on the cars:

  1. Cooper T66? [F1-5-63?] (André Wicky): New for Cooper F1 No 2 driver Tony Maggs to drive in 1963, starting at the International Trophy at Silverstone in May. This car is believed to have been sold to Switzerland in 1964, and was raced by Andre Wicky in Swiss national events in 1965. It was last seen at the Syracuse Grand Prix in 1966, but was entered for the same event in 1967 only to be damaged en route.
