3-litre Formula 1 World Championship events 1966-1985

These 1966 to 1985 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.

The entries returned to relative normality after Silverstone, with two from each of Lotus, Tyrrell, McLaren, Brabham, Shadow, Surtees, and Williams; three from BRM; one from March, Tecno and Ensign. De Adamich was badly injured after the Silverstone startline accident, and Ferrari did not turn up at all. The Goral Tecno, described as the lowest GP car ever, only managed a few laps. The privateers were Embassy Racing with Hill's Shadow, Space Racing with the stockbroker March 731, the works' hire March 731 with works mechanics in Lec livery for Purley, and Hesketh Racing with yet another March 731, making a total of 24. The works March 731 of Williamson and the LEC 731 of Purley were both brand new cars, but used the carnets and chassis plates of the cars they replaced. The seven spare cars were the two Lotus 72Ds, Stewart's Tyrrell 005, a spare McLaren M23, a spare Brabham BT42, a spare Shadow DN1 for the first time, and the second Tecno.
