Notes on the cars:
- McLaren M10A [300-02] (George Eaton): See full history: McLaren M10A 300-02.
- Lola T142 [SL142/38] (Horst Kroll): See full history: Lola T142 SL142/38.
- Lola T142 [SL142/29] (Eppie Wietzes): See full history: Lola T142 SL142/29.
- Brabham BT21 ["BT21-9"] (Al Justason): According to a biography of Bill Stone, his 1968 Formula 3 Brabham started out as a crashed BT18 frame bought from Frank Williams. Stone built this car up and entered it as a BT18/21B in European F3 events in the latter half of 1968. Early in 1969, Stone appeared with a Brabham powered by a Ford twin cam engine and said to be a BT21B when he raced it at Silverstone in April. At the Madrid GP, Autosport described it as a BT18 with a 1800cc Ford twin cam engine. It was called a BT21A when Del Bennett drove it at Silverstone in May. This car was then sold to Al Justason (Toronto, Ontario) for Formula B racing in 1969. Photographs of the car in Justason's ownership show that it had BT18 upper bodywork and it is likely that this "BT21" was actually Stone's BT18-based car from 1968. Justason sold the car to dealer Joe Grimaldi as a rolling chassis and its subsequent history is unknown.
- Brabham BT21 (Peter Roberts): New to Peter Roberts (Granby, Quebec) and his mechanic Wayne Spears (Chomedey, Quebec), and raced in Formula B in 1968 and 1969, when it was described simply as a BT21. Spears drove the car again in 1970 when it was listed at Harewood Acres as a BT21C. Nothing more known.
- Brabham BT21C (Howard Brown): From May 1968 to September 1969, Howard Brown (Paoli, PA or Malvern, PA) raced in Pro Formula B and in NEDiv in a Brabham, identified by the Sep 1968 Lime Rock entry list as a BT21C. Brown ran as #76 in 1968 and #69 in 1969 but the colour and identity of the Brabham are not yet known.
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 originally proved very difficult to complete, due in part to the poor coverage in Canadian magazines such as Track & Traffic. Wolfgang Klopfer provided Autoweek reports, Don Markle uncovered material in the archives then maintained by the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame (CMHoF), Jim Ibey found what he could from Track & Traffic, Tom Johnston provided scans of entry lists and reports from a variety of sources, and Michael Gee transcribed motor sports news articles at Vancouver's main library.
Since those early efforts, Mike Adams and Dominic St-Jean have provided official results sheets uncovered in the CMHoF and Trois-Rivières archives, and complete results have now been found for R1 Mosport 18 May 1969 (official results), R2 St Jovite 25 May 1969 (Autoweek), R6 Harewood Acres 17 Aug 1969 (official results), R2 Westwood 31 May 1970 (Autoweek), R3 Edmonton 14 Jun 1970 (Autoweek and also the official results), R4 Rockcliffe 1 Jul 1970 (Autoweek and the official results), R5 Harewood 9 Aug 1970 (Wheelspin 27 May 1970 edition and the official results), R6 Trois-Rivières 06 Sep 1970 (official results) and R7 Mosport Park 11 Oct 1970 (official results).
