Notes on the cars:
- Brabham BT30  (Peter Westbury): New to Peter Westbury and used for a full season of European F2 in 1969, winning at Neubiberg in October. Sold to John Wingfield (London NW11) and used in libre and in selected F2 events in 1970 and 1971. In August 1971, Wingfield acquired a new BT36 and the BT30, still with its Felday-tuned FVA engine, was sold to Jim Charnock (Liverpool) for Formule Libre, starting at Rufforth in early September. Charnock won five races in the closing weeks of the 1971 season, then won three more in 1972, when he was a regular runner at Aintree. He continued with the car in 1973, when he competed at Aintree and in the BRDC Jaybrand Racewear Formule Libre series, and in 1974 and 1975 when he was mainly seen at Aintree. The car is then unknown until it was advertised by dealer Brian Classic (Bucklow Hill, Cheshire) as "chassis number 3" in June 1984. Sold to Chris Mann (UK) 1985 and then sold via Frank Sytner to Ray Delaney (Melbourne, Australia) in 1987. Raced by Delaney in east coast Australian historic events the next six years at Calder Raceway (Vic), Sandown Park (Vic), Oran Park (NSW), Amaroo Park (NSW), Winton Raceway (Vic) and the support races at the Australian Grand Prix in Adelaide (SA) in 1988 and 1989. Sold to Dick James in 1993. To Mike Carmody 2003 and sold by him to Tom Lee (Puyallup, WA) October 2005. Restored for 2007 to its original livery.
- Lola T142 [SL142/40] (Mike Hailwood): See full history: Lola T142 SL142/40.
- Lola T142 [SL142/36] (Keith Holland): New to Alan Fraser for Keith Holland to drive in British F5000 in 1969 and 1970, and by Ray Calcutt when Holland left the team. Then via Harry Linney and Bob Miller to John Bowtell (Witney, Oxfordshire) who raced it in late 1971 and early 1972, entered by Andrew Cavell. Raced at Silverstone in April by Martin Ridehalgh, and by Bowtell again later in the year. To Richard Brown (Chieveley, Berkshire) for hillclimbs in 1973, then to Bob de la Haye for 1974 and 1975. Then unknown until acquired by John Peskett (Leicester) in 1978. Unused and stored until the car was featured on TV program 'Salvage Squad' broadcast in March 2002. Again unknown until advertised by Marcel Roks (Belgium) 2005 (blue with white stripe, #39). To Will Tomkins (Peterborough, Cambridgeshire) 2005 - Roger Deans (Baldock, Herts) 2006 and debuted at Shelsley Walsh in September 2006. See full history: Lola T142 SL142/36.
- Lola T142 [SL142/37] (Ulf Norinder): See full history: Lola T142 SL142/37.
- Lola T60 [SL60/5] (Steve Thompson): New to Frank Lythgoe for F3 in 1966, and raced for him by Mike Beckwith. Sold in June 1966 to Steve Thompson (Sutton Coldfield, Warwickshire), and raced in F3 and libre in 1966 and 1967. Then fitted with a 1.6-litre Ford twin-cam, and hugely successful in libre racing in 1968 and 1969. Also appeared in the F2 class at 1969 F5000 races. Retained briefly for 1970, until Thompson's new Chevron B17c was ready, and then sold to Chris Featherstone (Maidstone, Kent) to replace his original T60 after it was wrecked at Mallory Park in October 1970. Fitted with a 1500cc pushrod Ford engine, and raced by Featherstone in Monoposto in 1971 and 1972. For 1973, the car went to Vic Nutter (Billingshurst, West Sussex), by which time it had Ensign bodywork and a Hewland Mk 7 six-speed gearbox, and was raced by him in Monoposto a few times each year in 1973, 1974 and 1975. Nutter then returned to Kenya, and the Lola remained in storage in England until 1981 or 1982, when it was sold to John Fenning who restored it to original F2 specification. Later sold by Fenning to Peter Denty (Thetford, Norfolk) some time before 2003.
- Lola T142 [SL142/42] (Derrick Williams): See full history: Lola T142 SL142/42.
- Cooper T66 [F1-2-63] (Mike Coombe): New to Rob Walker and entered for Jo Bonnier in F1 in 1963, replacing an older ex-works T60. Retained for 1964 but soon replaced by a Brabham BT11 and used as a spare car with a BRM V8 engine, Its engine and gearbox were then transferred to Walker's ex-works Brabham BT7 and the car was sold to Bill Bradley and then on the John Axon. It was fitted with a 4727cc Ford Cobra V8 and raced in libre very successfully in 1965 and 1966, interrupted only by a heavy accident at Oulton Park in 1965. Sold to Jim Charnock (Liverpool) for 1967 and raced regularly in libre for another two seasons. To John Scott Davies briefly in early 1969 then to Mike Coombe and John Dean who shared it in F5000 and libre in 1969. Sold to Alan Mountain who entered it in libre and hillclimb events for John Lambert (York) in 1971. The engine was transferred into a Leda F5000 chassis and the rest of the car was sold to collector John McCartney. Subsequently via Jim Gleave, Howden Ganley, Hugh Edgely, Peter Bloore, Rod Tolhurst and John Harper to Anthony Mayman in early 1986. Then to Sid Hoole in 1992 and fully restored. Raced in historic events by Hoole for over 20 years.

- Lola T142 [SL142/35] (Mike Walker): See full history: Lola T142 SL142/35.
- Conchord (Bob Waters): Bob Waters decided to move into F5000 for 1969 with a new car build for him by Chas Beattie. Beattie had formerly run The Chequered Flag's F3 team and built the Gemini/DAF F3 cars for 1967. He set up Chas Beattie Projects for 1969 and built Formula Fords under his own name, and the spaceframe F5000 chassis for Waters that was christened the Conchord. The car was built up using componentry from Waters' old ex-Team Lotus, ex-Alan Eccles Lotus 40 sports car (chassis 40/L/1). According to Mike Kettlewell, it used "an ex-Jackie Oliver Mustang engine"; this would have been a 4.7-litre (289ci) Ford V8. The car was an unmitigated disaster and Waters withdrew after the Snetterton race in September. He was entered for a BOC Formula Libre Championship race at Snetterton again in April 1970 but is not mentioned in reports. The car was advertised from Kent in August 1970 but not seen again until it passed through Roger Hurst's hands in the early 1980s. In 2003, Hurst mentioned that "the Conchord was built using the running gear from a Lotus 30" and that "as far as I can remember it reverted to a Lotus 30". At some point the car was bought by Peter Denty (Thetford, Norfolk), along with the Lotus 40 chassis and other bits. These were used to recreate the Lotus 40, so the Conchord effectively ceased to exist.
