Individual sources for this event

Autosport 5 Oct 1972 pp32-37 (by Pete Lyons). Motoring News 28 Sep 1972 pp12-15 (by 'ARM' Andrew Marriott). Motor Sport November 1972 pp1245-1247 and 'Notes on the cars at Mosport Park' pp1247-1248 (by 'ARM' Andrew Marriott). Sport Auto Novembre 1972 pp34-39 (by Jabby Crombac). Autocourse 1972-73 pp124-129 (by Mike Kettlewell). Autosport's report was a week late due to "unforeseen delays with air travel".

There were two entries from each of Tyrrell, Lotus, Ferrari, McLaren, Surtees, March and Williams; three from Brabham; four from BRM; and one each from Matra and Tecno. The privateers were the stockbroker March, and the Gene Mason Racing March 711 for Skip Barber, bringing the total to 25. Andretti was committed to a USAC race at Trenton so Arturo Merzario was entered, but then dropped at the last minute.

The spare cars were Stewart's Tyrrell 004, Fittipaldi's Lotus 72, the Ferrari 312B2 that Merzario would have driven, the McLaren team's M19A, and Mike Hailwood's Surtees TS9B, which was untouched. Hailwood was busy with the Surtees F2 team at Albi. There was no spare Matra, as rumours circulated that the team would not continue in 1973. Tony Southgate had already left BRM and would be joining the new UOP Shadow F1 team for 1973, and Peter Schetty was serving out the end of his period at Ferrari.
