There were two entries from each of Tyrrell, Tecno, McLaren, March and Williams; three each from Ferrari and Brabham, four this time from each of BRM and Surtees; just a single Lotus, entered by World Wide Racing; and the usual single entry from Matra. The sole privateer was the stockbroker March, bringing the total to 27 entries, with only room for 25 on the grid. Giancarlo Gagliardi, entered in a third Frank Williams car, did not get a drive. So concerned were Lotus that their cars could be seized, they were sent down in separate trucks under the banner of "World Wide Racing". The first Lotus 72 to cross the border was damaged when a tyre blew on the ex-Tim Parnell transporter on the autostrada and it ended up on its side, so the team had to return to France where the second 72 had been kept hidden and bring that instead.

Apart from the damaged Lotus, the other spare cars were Stewart's Tyrrell 004, the McLaren M19A, the usual spare March 721G, Amon's usual spare Matra MS120C, and the Politoys, repaired since Brands Hatch. The new Surtees TS14 was present and the BRM P180 returned to service, but the Ferrari 312B3 was left at Maranello, and the Brabham BT39 also did not arrive.
