Notes on the cars:

  1. Brabham BT23 [6] (Robin Widdows): 1967 Whitley Racing Services for Robin Widdows. Sold at the end of the 1967 season to Mitsubishi Motors and shipped to Japan. May have been used by Kouichi Satou in 1973 and Masaru Tanaka in 1975
  2. Brabham BT21/23 [BT21-30] (Chris Lambert): This BT21 was built to F2 specification with a Cosworth FVA engine and BT23 suspension for Alan McKechnie Racing and raced in 1967 by Chris Lambert. It was later damaged in a trailer accident but evidently repaired and is believed to be the car that Don O'Sullivan (Western Australia) bought for 1968, fitted with one of his 2.5-litre Climax engines, and used in libre events at Caversham. If so, the car was sold back to the UK at the end of that year and would then be the "ex-Lambert" car that was used as the basis of a "new" BT21B for Dr Joseph Ehrlich's team which was being built up for F3 in April 1969. Presumably then the car raced for the team by Roger Keele in September 1969. Raced again in 1971 in Formula Atlantic by Johnny Dimsdale (London) with an RES twin cam and advertised by him at the end of that season as a BT21C. Presumably the same car that Bob King of Bob King Motorcycles (Bedford) entered as a BT21C in Formula Atlantic races in 1972 and which he later advertised with a RES Ford twin cam in October 1972, mentioning that it was red. This would then be the red BT21C with RES engine entered by Nick Overall (East Horsley, Surrey) in a Jaybrand libre race at Silverstone in March 1973. Subsequent history unknown.
  3. Lola T100 [SL100/4] (Chris Williams): Believed to be the works Lola T100 entered by Lola Racing for John Surtees to drive in Formula 2 at the start of 1967. Fitted with a Cosworth FVA engine and raced by Surtees at Snetterton and Silverstone in March 1967, then by Chris Irwin at the Nürburgring in April. Sold in May to David Bridges for Brian Redman to drive in F2 for the rest of that season. Retained by Bridges for F2 in 1968, when it was driven by Redman, Chris Williams, Mike Beckwith, David Hobbs and Robin Widdows. Sold to Robin Darlington (Ruaben, Wales) late 1969, and used in libre racing in 1970. He advertised it in January 1971 when it had a twin cam and was prepared for the new 1971 Formula Atlantic category. Robin cannot recall where it went, but it was next seen in Sprints in late 1973, when it was driven by Richard Lester (Yoxall, Staffordshire). The car was run by Lester in the 1600cc class in Sprints and occasional hillclimbs from 1974 to 1977. Lester then acquired a March 73B, and advertised the T100 in January 1978 as "ex-Redman" with an all-steel twin cam and Hewland FT200 gearbox. This is likely to be the red/white 1600cc Lola T100 that Kenneth Brill (Redditch, Worcestershire) raced in libre at Croft in 1978. Subsequent history unknown.
  4. Brabham BT23 [4] (Alan Rees): Roy Winkelmann Racing for Alan Rees in F2 1967. To Walter Habegger (Oberönz, Switzerland) 1968 for Swiss championship events. To Gérard Pillon (Geneva, Switzerland) 1969 and used in Swiss national events and French hillclimbs. (Although one source gives this as the car of Enzo Corti at Rheims and Albi in 1969, that identification looks highly doubtful.) Crashed at Côte de la Faucille on 7 September and not seen again. In 2009, Walter Habegger recalled that Pillon had an accident in the car and that it was badly damaged.
  5. Brabham BT14 [FL-4-65] (Freddie Smith): New to Freddie Smith (Forton, near Garstang, Lancashire) and used in libre racing, sprints and hillclimbs, fitted with a 1600cc Ford twin cam engine. When Formula 2 changed to a 1600cc limit in 1967, Smith was entered for several F2 races in the car by David Bridges Motor Sports, finishing seventh at Hockenheim. Used in hillclimbs again in 1968 then sold to fellow hillclimber Peter Kaye for 1969 but sold on mid-season to Willie Green. Next seen a few months later with dealer Bobby Howlings (Congleton, Cheshire) for libre racing at Croft, then on to Bill Creasey (Dunstable, Bedfordshire) for libre in 1970. Then via Howlings again to Geoff Lambert (Burnley, Lancashire) to replace a Brabham BT18 written off at Ingliston, and raced in libre events in 1971 and early 1972. Geoff's son John reckons the car went back to Howlings yet again in part-exchange for a Chevron B17. Subsequent history unknown.
  6. Brabham BT14 [FL-7-65] (Ian Raby): Bought new by Jackie Epstein for 1965 and used in both Formule Libre (with a Ford twin cam) and Formula 2 (with a Cosworth SCA). Sold at the end of the season to Ian Raby (Brighton, Sussex) who raced it in November 1965 and then in F2 through 1966. Converted back to its Ford twin cam engine for 1967 and continued in F2 up to Zandvoort in July when Raby suffered the injuries from which he later died. The BT14 was rebuilt and Tony Barchou of Ian Raby Racing in 1968 and then, as a BT14/18, in rounds of the European F5000 series in 1969. Engine and transmission sold to Alan Jones and rolling chassis to Rob 'Tiny' Littler but he did not use it and eventually sold it to a collector in California. Nothing further known until a car with this claimed history owned by Don Orosco (Monterey, CA) c1995. Subsequently via John Zuppan (Portland, OR) and Jim Schnell (Seattle, WA) to Jonathan Burke (San Francisco, CA) early 2005.
  7. Brabham BT18 [F2-5-66] (Andrew Fletcher): David Preston ran a Brabham with a 1.6-litre Ford twin-cam engine in libre racing throughout 1966. The car was generally described as a BT14 but that may just be because comentators were used to the twincam Brabham being a BT14. His season was punctuated by a serious accident at Silverstone on 25 Jun and he was not seen again for eight weeks. Andrew Fletcher then raced a Brabham BT18 in F2 and in libre in 1967, the car being identified by Motoring News as one that had been raced in libre during 1966. Then, in January 1969, when Fletcher traded up to a Chevron B8, his BT18 was described as being ex-Preston. The subsequent history of the Brabham is unknown.
  8. Brabham BT10 [F2-13-64] (Paul Blum): Walter Habegger (Oberönz, Switzerland) bought a Brabham late in 1964 and used it in Formula 3. However, photographs show that his F3 car was a BT10, not a BT9 as had been supposed. He converted the car to 1600cc Ford twin-cam power and used it in Swiss National events in 1965 but it is likely to have been the car he also used in selected F3 events. Habegger acquired a new BT16 later in 1965 but the BT10 was retained as part of his Midland Racing Team in 1966 and raced once by Arnold Seiler at Payerne in June and later in the year by Paul Blum (Frick, Switzerland). Raced in Swiss events and in minor F2 events by Blum in 1967, at which point it was identified as F2-13-64. Then to Willy Schöni (Konolfingen, Switzerland) for 1968, retaining its twin cam engine, and then to Charles Riesen (Bern) for 1969. Then via George Hedinger to Gebrüder Messerli who retained it for over 30 years. Bought by Raphaël Weber (Corgémont, Switzerland) in 2005 and restored, appearing in historic events since 2011.
  9. Brabham BT18 [BT16 F2-33-65] (Bruno Frey): New to Walter Habegger (Oberönz, Switzerland) in March 1966, fitted with a 1600cc Lotus-Ford twin cam and entered by Midland Racing Team for Habegger in Swiss national events. To Bruno Frey (Horw, Switzerland) for 1967 and raced in Swiss events plus selected Formula 2 races, still as part of Midland Racing Team. To Paul Blum (Frick, Switzerland) for 1968, and again used in Swiss national events and run for him by Midland Racing Team. To Kurt Buess (Gelterkinden, Switzerland) for 1969 and 1970, then to Georges Hedinger for 1971. The car went to Fritz Messerli for 1972 but was stored until sold to Raphael Weber in 2006. Weber sold it in June 2011 to Gerald Ludwig (Krefeld, Germany), who restored it to original condition. Run for the first time at the Brabham revival meeting at Reims, France, in September 2016.
  10. Cooper T82 [F2-1-66] (Alan Rollinson): Run by Bob Gerard as a quasi-works F2 team in 1966 for driver Bob Anderson, but also raced by Mike Beckwith towards the end of the season. Rebuilt with a Ford twin cam for the new 1600cc F2 in 1967 and driven by Beckwith, Peter Gethin, Alan Rollinson and others. Presumably this is the car that was next seen in 1969 when fitted with its original Cosworth SCA engine and being raced in hillclimbs by Donald L. Gray (Rotherham, South Yorkshire). Gray continued to pick up class award with this car into 1972. Subsequent history unknown but a "ex-Rollinson, ex-Gethin" Cooper T82 was raced by Ronnie Haines with a Ford twin cam engine in FORCE races in 2003 and in HSCC racing since then.
  11. Lola T62/T64 [SL62/8] (Robs Lamplough): John Surtees' 1966 F2 car according to Lola records, and raced only at Karlskoga in August 1966. To Robs Lamplough (London) at the end of 1966 and raced in 1967 F2 and libre, when it was described as having been updated to T63 specification. Then to John L'Amie in Ireland for 1600cc class racing. Sold to the US in Sep 1968, and almost certain to be the car imported by Pierre Philips of Pierre's Motor Racing (Portland, OR) and raced by Robert Schmidt (Portland, OR) for Formula B in 1969. From Schmidt it was sold to Sans Thompson (Banks, OR), who in turn sold it to Robert 'Bob' Tracy (Hillsboro, OR), who raced it in local Formula B in 1973. While owned by Tracy, the Lola was crashed by David E.B. 'Deb' Ward in 1974 at a driving school at Kent. Many years later, it was acquired by Lawrence Hayes, still in Tracy's livery, and sold by him via Rob Shanahan in February 2012 back to Robs Lamplough.
  12. Lola T100 [SL100/3?] (Hubert Hahne): Believed to be the new Lola T100 entered by BMW Motorsport and raced by Hubert Hahne at the Nürburgring in April 1967. It is presumably then the car he raced at Hockenheim in June, and that he used at Reims two weeks later, where he failed to qualify. It is then assumed to be the car he raced in the German GP in nominal Formula 1 specification with a 2-litre version of the BMW Apfelbeck engine. His remaining races that season were in the Brands Hatch Guards Trophy in August, at Albi in September, and the Gran Premio di Roma at Vallelunga in October. The two BMW Motorsport Lola T100s were then rebuilt to take Cosworth FVAs and given new chassis numbers SL100/7 and SL100/8.
  13. Lola T100 [SL100/1?] (Kurt Ahrens): Believed to be the Lola T100 entered by BMW Motorsport for Hubert Hahne at the opening race of the 1967 F2 season. This car was taken over by Jo Siffert at the second race, at Silverstone a few days later, and kept by him for the race at Nürburgring in April. It is then assumed to be the car used by Kurt Ahrens in the team's next race at Hockenheim in June. If Hahne stayed with the newer chassis SL100/3, then this original car would be the one raced by Siffert at Reims in June, at Albi in September, and at Vallelunga in October. It is assumed here to be the car used by Siffert to win the St Ursanne-Les Rangiers hillclimb in August using the 2-litre BMW Apfelbeck engine, but that could just as easily be the same car Hahne had used in the German GP two weeks earlier, as that used the same larger engine. Detailed photographs or access to BMW records may resolve that. The two BMW Motorsport Lola T100s were then rebuilt to take Cosworth FVAs and given new chassis numbers SL100/7 and SL100/8.
  14. Brabham BT16 [F2-23-65] (Chris Williams): The F1 Register show this car as being entered by Bob Anderson's DW Racing Enterprises for Anderson at Brands Hatch in August 1965 and at Oulton Park three weeks later but it may have been part of the Lythgoe operation. Lythgoe then enters this car for John Taylor and then Mike Beckwith in F2 in 1966. According to a profile of Rob Leeson in CT&T Feb 1969, this car was bought late in 1965 by Lythgoe, was used in libre with a 1.4-litre version of a SCA in 1966, went to David Bridges for 1967 and then to Leeson for 1968. The chassis number is derived from comparing that history with F1R F2 records. Its exact racing history in 1966 libre is hard to determine due to fluctuating descriptions but it seems to have been Rollinson's libre car from August until the end of the year with a F3 car travelling as backup. A profile of Rollinson in Autosport 6 Jun 1969 p19 gives more detail on the car and on other Lythgoe entries. MN reports that David Bridges borrowed the BT16-SCB for Brian Redman to race in early 1967 F2 rounds. Leeson took the BT16 back to his native Canada where he won the 1968 championship. Despite reports that it had gone to Bob Constabaris (West Vancouver, BC), Leeson sold it to Pierce Isaacs for 1970 and 1971. Later sold to Kevin Skinner (Langley, WA), by which time it has BT21 rear suspension, and raced by him with a Ford twin cam engine in FB. Sold by Skinner to Simon Gardner (Burnaby, BC, Canada) in July 1978, and raced in ICSCC events. Then sold in November 1979 to Jerry Ives, who used it for racing school in Canada. Sold by Ives to Bob Micheletti in February 1985 and rebuilt for history racing. To Christopher Leggett at the start of 1988, then later to David Long. Then unknown until 2017, when it was owned by Steve Davis.
