Notes on the cars:

  1. Brabham BT28 (Carlo Franchi ("Gimax")): Carlo Franchi, who raced as "Gimax", had a Brabham BT28 for Italian F3 in 1972 as a Jolly Club Milano entry. The car was updated to BT35 specification for Gimax in 1973, when it was entered by Scuderia Jolly Club at some raced and by Scuderia Italia at others. Subsequent history unknown.
  2. Brabham BT28 [22] (Luigi Battistello): Delivered to Australian Colin Crang in September 1969 for use in British F3 but not actually raced until a libre race at Brands Hatch in early December. Wrecked in testing at some point in late November. Sold to Luigi Battistello for Italian F3 in 1970, Retained by Battistello for 1971, initially with a Ford twin cam and then with an Alfa Romeo engine later in the season. Run again by Battistello in Italian F3 in 1972.
  3. Brabham BT28 (Giovanni Lo Voi): Giovanni Lo Voi had a Brabham BT28 for Italian F3 in 1970, competing in most races that season. He returned for the new 1600cc F3 in 1971, initially still using the 1-litre engine, before upgrading to a Ford twin cam in time for Imola in May. He retained the car for a single race in 1972 when Autosprint recorded the chassis numbers of most other F3 cars but just recorded a dash for Lo Voi's. Some sources have this car as chassis BT28-35 but that car has a well-documented career in the UK. Nothing more known.
  4. March 713M [6] (Roger Hurst): New to John Bisignano (Denver, CO) and raced in British F3 in 1971 with support from Liggett & Myers L&M tobacco brand. Sold in October 1971 to Roger Hurst of Lenham Hurst and raced in F3 in 1972 and 1973. By 1973 the car was being described on occasion as a 723, a 733, a March Falconer, and even as a Lenham LM1. Last raced by Hurst in November 1973. In March 1974, the car was advertised by Low Cost Racing who mentioned that it had Falconer bodywork and was fitted with a Holbay R70 engine for Formula 4. Its history over the next five years is unknown, but in 1979 and 1980, Tony Harris and Colin Brook raced 713M-6 in F4. Subsequent history unknown. A car with this identity was advertised in Italy in 2012.
  5. Brabham BT28 [24] (Gianni Giudici): New to Adelmo Fossati and raced in Italia F3 in 1970, entered by Scuderia Madunina and using Novamotor engines. Retained for 1971, initially with 1000cc engines, and later with 1600cc Novamotor twin cams. To Gianni Giudici for Italian F3 in 1972, when he was entered by Scuderia Italia. Subsequent history unknown.
  6. March 713S [8] (Hans Deffland): New to Eifelland for Formula 3 and delivered in March 1971. Although there is no contemporary identification of this car's first driver, it was identified by Bonhams in a sale in Germany in August 2003 as Willi Sommer's car, commenting that the car had its original ONS-Wagenpass issued in 1971. Sommer raced a March 713S through the 1971 season as part of the Eifelland Wohnwagenbau team. According to Chris Townsend, it then went to Hans Deffland (Munich, Bavaria) for 1972, entered by Formel Team München. After the 1972 season, Deffland exchanged it for the crashed Porsche 910 of Walter Proebst (Adlkofen, Landshut, Bavaria), and Proebst raced the car in German hillclimbs, initially in the F3 class and later in F2. Bonhams did not account for its history after 1971 until it was restored "1996-99 by Auer of Dortmund".
  7. Chevron B17 [17.70.05?] (Maximillian Plass): New to Jürg Dubler (Oberhasli, Switzerland) and raced in European F3 in 1970 using Novamotor engines, and winning at Montjuich Park, Brno and Zandvoort. Bought from Dubler by Austrian sportscar driver Klaus Reisch in 1971 for the new 1600cc F3, using a Wainer-built Alfa Romeo engine, and run by Auto Ascher. Then likely to be the Chevron B17-Alfa raced by Maximillian Plass (Munich, Germany) in F3 in 1972. Subsequent history unknown.
  8. Brabham BT28 (Massimo Ciccozzi): Alessandro Pesenti-Rossi raced a Brabham BT28 in Italian F3 in 1971. It went to Scuderia de Passatore for 1972, fitted with a Wainer Alfa Romeo engine and driven by Massimo Ciccozzi in the early part of the season. Ciccozzi progressed to a Branca, and the BT28 was taken over by Angelo Ancherani later in 1972. Then to Giauco Maselli for 1973. Reportedly retained for 1974 and 1975, and presumably the BT28 raced by "Claudio" Maselli in 1975. Subsequent history unknown, but this car was advertised by Paolo Ricciuti (Pescara) in March 2021, still with Clauco Maselli's name on the side of the bodywork. The frame number of the car suggests a chassis number somewhere in the range BT28-5 to BT28-20.
