Notes on the cars:

  1. Brabham BT38C [22] (Alberto Colombo): New to Vittorio Brambilla and raced in Italian F3 in 1972 using Novamotor engines. To Alberto Colombo in early August 1972, and run for him by Scuderia del Lario for the rest of the Italian season. Presumably the Scuderia del Lario entry for Roberto Manzoni in 1973.
  2. Brabham BT35 ["30"] (Piergiovanni Tenani): Adelmo Bignami (Italy) raced a Brabham BT35 in Italian F3 in 1972, entered by Scuderia Italia. This is presumably the car raced by Piergiovanni Tenani for Scuderia Italia once at Monza at the end of the season. Subsequent history unknown.
  3. Lotus 69 (Fredy Link): Fredy Link drove a Lotus 69 in European F3 in 1972 fitted with a Renault engine developed by Franz Albert and entered by Albert Racing Cams and Vienna Race Management. One of these cars would have been chassis 71/69-6.F3 but the identity of the other is unknown.
  4. Lotus 69 (Gerhard Witti): Gerhard Witti drove a Lotus 69 in European F3 in 1972 fitted with a Renault engine developed by Franz Albert and entered by Albert Racing Cams and Vienna Race Management. One of these cars would have been chassis 71/69-6.F3 but the identity of the other is unknown.
  5. Lotus 69 [71/69-2.F3] (Marcello Rosei): New to Claude Bourgoignie and raced in European F3 in 1971, using Holbay and Novamotor engines and entered by Johnson's Wax Team Belgium. Sold to Marcello Rosei and used in Italian F3 in 1972 using Wainer Alfa Romeo engines and entered by Scuderia Meneghina. Retained by Rosei for 1973, again with Wainer Alfa Romeo engines. Retained again by Rosei for the start of the 1974 season, when it was fitted with a Repetto Lancia engine and entered by Scuderia Varazze Corse. Rosei then acquired a March 733, and the Lotus-Lancia was sold to Sergio Rosso, who raced it in Italian F3 for the rest of 1974. Retained by Rosso for 1975, but he was entered in a Lola at some races that season. History then unknown until acquired by Philippe Demeyer (Belgium) in 2018.
  6. Brabham BT38C (Alessandro Guidetti): New to Alessandro Guidetti and raced by him in Italian F3 in the latter part of the 1972 season, run by Scuderia Mirabella Mille Miglia. Retained for Italian F3 for the first half of the 1973 season, when it was entered by Scuderia Brescia Corse.
  7. Lotus 69 [71/69-4.F3] (Fabrizio Noè): New to Manfred Mohr and raced extensively in European F3 in 1971, using Novamotor engines. Sold to Fabrizio Noè for 1972. Noè had raced a 1971 Lotus 69 in F3 in 1971 but in early 1972 was reported to have sold his car to Fiorenzo Togna and bought Mohr's "monocoque" car to replace it. This suggests Mohr's car had acquired a F2 chassis at some point during 1971. Raced by Noè in Italian F3 in 1972. Subsequent history unknown.
  8. Brabham BT35 [28] (Josef Ludescher): Josef Ludescher (Winterthur, northern Switzerland) raced a Brabham BT35 in Swiss events in 1971. Retained for 1972 and used in Swiss, German and Italian events. Retained again for 1973. According to a later advertisement, the car was retained by Ludescher until 1983, after which it returned to England for historic racing.
  9. Lotus 69 [71/69.3.F3] (Bruno Pescia): New to Giuseppe Bianchi and raced extensively in Italian F3 in 1971, using Novamotor Ford engines and entered by Scuderia Italia. To Cesare Doneda for 1972, and raced by him and by Bruno Pescia in Italian F2 in 1972. Subsequent history unknown.
  10. Lotus 69 [71/69.10.F3] (Lella Lombardi): New to Manizio Levi and raced in Italian F3 in 1971, using Ford engines and entered by Scuderia Meneghina. To Lella Lombardi for Italian F3 in 1972, using Novamotor engines and entered by Jolly Club Milano. Subsequent history unknown.
  11. 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.
  12. Brabham BT35 [2] (Jean-Bernard Mermod): Colin Vandervell's 1971 F3 car, entered and practised for the Atlantic race at Brands Hatch September 12, 1971 but ran in F3 race the same day. Later used at end of season by Tony Brise, including in the joint Atlantic/F3 race at Brands Hatch on Boxing Day 1971.
