Notes on the cars:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Brabham BT35 ["30"] (Adelmo Bignami): 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Lotus 69 [71/69.1.F3] (Roberto Manzoni): New to Fabrizio Noè and raced in European F3 in 1971, using Novamotor engines and entered by Squadra Corse Meda. Sold to Fiorenzo Togna for Italian F3 in 1972, entered by Scuderia Como Corse. Sold later in the season to Roberto Manzoni who raced it in Italian F3 using an Alfa Romeo engine. Subsequent history unknown,
  7. Brabham BT28 [41] (Marcello Gallo): Unknown 1970 production. Possibly the car of "Dubis" (Giorgio Corradi), who did not appear after 1970, or one of the Jolly Club cars of Luigi Petri, Pino Pica, Giancarlo Gagliardi or Diego Ritucci. To Girolamo 'Mimmo' Bertoni for 1971, entered by Scuderia Jolly Club, then to Giuseppe Piazzi for 1972, then Marcello Gallo in 1973, then Giuseppe Monguzzi in 1974. Subsequent history unknown.
  8. 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.
