Individual sources for this event

There were two entries from Lotus, Tyrrell, McLaren, Surtees, Shadow and Williams; three from BRM and Brabham; and one each from Ferrari and March. There were only two privateers at this race: Beuttler in the new stockbroker March 731, which he had been able to test briefly before the event, unlike the works STP car being driven here by Pescarolo; and Graham Hill in his new Shadow DN1 run by his own new operation, Embassy Racing, making a total of 22. Andrea de Adamich and his colourful Ceramica Pagnossin sponsorship had moved from Surtees to Brabham, Motoring News revealing that there had been a dispute between Surtees and the sponsor. Surtees used an interview in Motoring News in July 1973 to say of the Italian, "Andrea's biggest problem is his personality", accusing him of "Walter Mitty" fantasies. Denis Jenkinson awarded his 'Team Shambles' title to Team Surtees. Tecno, who had done rather more to deserve the title, did not turn up after the truck was ordered to return to base when an engine problem was discovered. Spare cars were Fittipaldi's Lotus 72 R5, which arrived late from Zolder where he had been testing, Stewart's Tyrrell 005, a second Ferrari 312B3 for Ickx, Hulme and Revson's third McLaren M23, a spare BRM P160E used by Lauda, and the second Brabham BT37 which stayed on a trailer.
