Notes on the cars:

  1. McLaren M10A [300-02] (George Eaton): See full history: McLaren M10A 300-02.
  2. Lola T142 [SL142/38] (Horst Kroll): See full history: Lola T142 SL142/38.
  3. 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. Then apparently retained by Broeker until 1974, when he used it in a few races. After Broeker's death in late 1980 the B14 was bought from his estate by Gerry Jones. 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.
  4. Lola T142 [SL142/29] (Eppie Wietzes): See full history: Lola T142 SL142/29.
  5. Kiki Mk 6A (Tony Simms): Doug McArthur (Toronto, Canada) built a number of one-off racing cars in the late 1960s. These included a Mk 2 that raced in Formula C, a Mk 3 which had a Ford 289 engine and was said to resemble an overgrown Lotus 7, and a Mk 4 that ran in Formula B until Doug Durrell demolished it at Mont Tremblant in July 1969. For 1968, local papers noted that McArthur was planning a Formula A car with a spaceframe chassis and Chevrolet engine. The car was first seen in Canadian Formula A in 1969, when it was driven by Tony Simms (Willowdale, Ontario). It had a mild steel space frame with a few stressed aluminum panels around the cockpit plus the undertray, and used a Hewland LG gearbox and McLaren wheels. The Chevrolet V8 engine was prepared by Dave Billes at Performance Engineering. Simms returned with the car in 1970, but its only documented appearance was at Trois-Rivières in September. It was then sold to John Powell, who was moving up from racing a MGB. Unfortunately, the car got airborne while testing at Harewood Acres and was destroyed. Some surviving components were being used in a Kiki Mk 8 until Powell's budget ran out.
  6. Cooper T83 [F3-5-66] (Gerry Baker): New to John Kendall, and entered for him by Frank Manning Racing in British and European F3 in 1966. Unknown in 1967, but identified by Canadian historian John Lindsay as the car raced by Gerry Brown (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) in 1968. Brown won two novice races in a Cooper at Mosport Park on 27 July 1968, and at Harewood Acres two weeks later, his car was shown as a Formula B Cooper with 1340cc capacity. Another entry list for that same event called it a Cooper T83 with 1100cc capacity and spelt Brown's name as Jerry Brown. The Cooper passed to Gerry Baker (Hamilton, Ontario) for the 1969 season, but was rarely seen. The Hamilton Spectator referred to Baker's car as ""a new Formula 2 Cooper (1600cc)" acquired in April. Baker also entered the car for at least one race in 1970. Subsequent history unknown.


Note that 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' published 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), R9 Mosport Park 13 Oct 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).

The entry list for this first round of the "Gulf Canada Series for the Canadian Road racing Championship" omitted Craig Hill but he appears on the entry list for a couple of supporting "Formula Cars" races in a Sports Cars Unlimited Formula Ford Lotus 61. The program describes Broeker's car as a Stebro Mk5 but it is described elsewhere as a Chevron B15B.
