Notes on the cars:

  1. Brabham BT28 [4] (C-G Linnaeus): New for Ulf Svensson (Sweden) and raced in European F3 in 1969. Retained for 1970 and entered for Conny Andersson in European F3. Retained early 1971 but then unknown until noted by F1 Register as the car of C-G. Linnaeus in 1976. Subsequent history unknown but a car with this number in historic racing from 1999 onwards.
  2. Brabham BT28/35 [BT28-43] (Leif Engström): A new car for Gustaf Dieden which first appeared at Karlskoga in August 1970 and raced in Scandinavian F3. Then hired by Torsten Palm, who had previously raced a BT28 for Picko Troberg's Mennen Racing Team, and used as a private entry in the Torneio Brasileiro de Formula 3. Retained by Palm in 1000cc form for the start of the 1971 Swedish F3 series as his new 1600cc BT35 was not yet ready. To Leif Engström 1972-1975 then Mats Peterson Paninder 1976 and 1977. Subsequent history unknown.
