Notes on the cars:

  1. Chevron B43 [43.78.19A] (Michael Bleekemolen): Michael Bleekemolen raced a Chevron B43 for Chevron Racing Team at Kassel-Calden and Jarama in September 1978, sponsored by F&S Properties. This is likely to be the source of the "ex-Bleekemolen" B43 used by John Lewis to build a Chevron B47 in 1979. The chassis plate on Lewis's car read "42.78.19A", suggesting it had some relationship to the B43-78-19 raced by works favourite Jim Crawford earlier in 1978.
  2. Chevron B38 [37.77.21] (Jean-Louis Schlesser): New to Patrick Gaillard for British F3 in 1977. Sold to Jean-Louis Schlesser for European F3 in 1978, and run by him for KWS Motorsport. Sold to Bernard Birbés for French F3 and French hilllcimbs (using a 1600cc Toyota engine) in 1979. To André Argeliès and run in French hillclimbs with a 1300cc Ford engine in 1981 and 1982. By 1987, this car had returned to England as was being raced in TF3 by Ian Jacobs.
  3. March 783 [10] (Peré (Pedro) Noguès): Shown in March records for 1978 as delivered to Rushen Green Racing 29 March 1978, colour blue, with tub 78M42. Pedro Nogues joined Serra at Rushen Green from the end of April, with a blue 783. Retained into 1979. This chassis number observed on the hillclimb car of Tom Hart (Beckenham, Greater London) in the 1600cc class in 1981. To Barrie Dutnall (Gillingham, Kent) in 1983 and 1984, then to Billy MacMillan (Darvel, East Ayrshire, Scotland) and fitted with a Cosworth BDG, then to Bill Wood (Edinburgh) at the end of 1986. Wood did not enjoy it, and it was sold via David Keogh or Paul Rendle at the end of 1987 to Chris Drewett (Harbury, Warwickshire). Raced by Drewett from 1988 to 2002. Sold by Drewett via Paul Matty to Andrew Peach, and presumably the March 782 raced by him in the HSCC Derek Bell Trophy in 2004.
  4. Chevron B43 (Walter Frey): Walter Frey raced a Chevron B43 in European F3 in 1978, sponsored by Toyota AG Switzerland.
