The identification of individual cars in these results is based on the material presented elsewhere in this site and may in some cases contradict the organisers' original results.

These results were initially compiled by Allen Brown, but these were in the very basic form required to track individual car histories. Since then further details, such as laps completed, qualifying times and so on, have been added from Rob Ryder's extensive database.

All comments, clarifications, corrections and additions are most welcome. Please email Allen (allen@oldracingcars.com) if you can help with our research.

Individual sources for this event

Autosport 3 May 1968 pp26-30. Motor Sport June 1968 p502. Motoring News 2 May 1968 pp1,10-12. Speedworld International 4 May 1968 pp20-23. Autosport was still calling the new BRM a P139. Motoring News had limited information on the identity of the cars, and Motor Sport had even less. The first edition of Speedworld International had a detailed report, but only gave the chassis number of the winning McLaren.
