The 24 FOA entries comprised two each from Tyrrell, Lotus, McLaren, Brabham, March and Williams; three from Ferrari, five from BRM, three from Surtees and a single Matra. The four privateers were the stockbroker (Clarke, Mordaunt, Guthrie and Durlacher) March 711 run by Space Racing, and the Eifelland, making a total of 26 entries. As BRM had five drivers, Alex Stokes had been given the job of managing the 'B' team of Soler-Roig and Wisell.

Four spare cars were present: Stewart had Tyrrell 004, Amon had a Matra listed by MN as MS120C/03 but by AS as MS120C/04, Hulme had the other McLaren M19A, which he raced instead of the new M19C, and Beltoise had a spare BRM P160, which he elected to race instead of his intended P180. One of BRM's seven cars turned out to be one of the four plastic P180 replicas that had been created by Specialised Mouldings for show car purposes. One of these later spent decades on the roof of the Donington Museum. A spare March 721 was in the transporter but only Marriott for Motoring News spotted it. Motoring News also noted that both Henri Pescarolo and Graham Hill tried Amon's Matra in testing on the Friday.
