Notes on the cars:
- Stebro-Chevron B14 [FB-68-10?] (Peter W. Broeker): Canadian veteran Peter W. Broeker (Pt. Claire, Quebec) bought a Chevron B14 for 1968 and surviving Chevron records imply that it was chassis number FB-68-10. Used in SCCA pro events and also in Canadian Eastern Zone Formula Championship and Championnat de Formule du Québec races in 1968. Retained for 1969 and raced in the Canadian Road Racing Championship and the Molson Championship, often entered as a Stebro-Chevron. Presumably the car raced by Bill Eagles (Lasalle, Quebec) in Molson events in 1970 and in the Players FB series in 1971. If Eagles did own it, then it must have returned to Broeker as after Broeker's death in late 1980 the B14 was bought from his estate by Gerry Jones. As Broeker had got it back, this is likely to be the "B9/15/17" that Broeker used briefly in 1974. Jones sold it to Roger Fountain who moved to England in 1988, and sold the car to Chris Ball who had it restored for HSCC racing in the UK.
The identification of individual cars in these results is based on the material presented elsewhere in this site and may in some cases contradict the organisers' original results.
Results for this series have proved very difficult to complete, due in part to the poor coverage in Canadian magazines such as Track & Traffic. Wolfgang Klopfer has provided Autoweek reports, Don Markle uncovered much material in the CMHF Archives, Jim Ibey found what he could from Track & Traffic and Tom Johnston has provided scans of entry lists and reports from a variety of sources. Also Michael Gee has been busy transcribing motor sports news articles at Vancouver's main library.
Complete results have been found only for R2 St Jovite 25 May 1969 (Autoweek), R2 Westwood 31 May 1970 (Autoweek), R3 Edmonton 14 Jun 1970 (Autoweek and also the official results) and R4 Rockcliffe 1 Jul 1970 (Autoweek and also the official results). The R5 Harewood 16 Aug 1970 results are derived from the Wheelspin report in the 27 May 1970 edition.
Full results are still needed for some races and further help would be greatly appreciated.
