  1. McLaren M10B [400-05] (Howden Ganley): Barry Newman for Howden Ganley: UK 1970 (18 races, five second places) - Gordon Spice: Argentinean GP 1971; UK 1971 (11 races + 1 DNS). Rebuilt as 'Kitchmac' by Tony Kitchiner for 1972 season: driven by Gordon Spice (UK: 7 races + 1 DNS), John Kendall (UK: 2 races; US : 1 race only R3 Watkins Glen), Fred Saunders (UK: 1 DNS only), Alan Rollinson (UK: 1 race only), Roger Williamson (UK: 3 races); UK 1973: driven by Kaye Griffiths ( 1 race only), Richard Knight (5 races + 1 DNS). Not seen again after the end of 1973. It has been reported that this car was wrecked in an accident but it appears to have survived its final race in 1973 intact. Subsequent history unknown.
  2. Lola T190 [190/F1/7] (Trevor Taylor): New to Doug Hardwick's Henley Forklift team for the 1970 British Formula 5000 series. Raced by Mo Nunn (2 races), Davey Powell (7 races + 2 DNS) and Trevor Taylor (6 races) in 1970. To Kaye Griffiths (2 races + 1 DNQ), Terry Sanger (1 race only), Ian Ashley (3 races) and Tony Trimmer (1 race only) in 1971, during which time it was acquired by Rocky Plumridge. Retained by Plumridge for 1972 and raced by Ian Ashley (9 F5000 races, and DNQ for the Rothmans 50,000). Subsequent history unknown.
  3. Beattie P1100 ['1'] (Lingard Goulding): Built mid-1970 for Lingard Goulding to race in Formula 5000, and in occasional libre races. Retained for 1971 in 'P1100B' specification, but crashed heavily by Goulding at Mallory Park in early July and written off.
  4. Lola T190 [190/F1/2-2] (Tony Lanfranchi): New for Ulf Norinder and raced in the 1970 Tasman series. Then raced in the UK 1970 but crashed in practice for R4 Zandvoort 19 April 1970 and rebuilt on the 11th T190 tub as 190/F1/2-2. Raced again by Norinder for five more races then raced by Tony Lanfranchi at two races but crashed on the warm-up lap at the Oulton Park Gold Cup on 22 August. The car broke its back on landing and was not seen again. Presumed destroyed.

These results were initially compiled by Allen Brown, but these were in the very basic form required to track individual car histories. Since then further details, such as laps completed, qualifying times and so on, have been added from Rob Ryder's extensive database.

Individual sources for this event

Autosport 27 Aug 1970 pp30-34 (report by Quentin Spurring). Motor Sport October 1970 p1094 (very brief report by DSJ). Motoring News 27 Aug 1970 pp12-13 (report by MGD, Mike Doodson). Autocar 27 Aug 1970 pp26-27 (by Michael Scarlett). The Motor Racing Year No 2 p135-138 (by Anthony Pritchard). Motoring News gave no chassis identities, but Motor Sport listed the five cars that started and the spare March 701, and Autosport added the number of the second BRM P153.

Only five F1 entries made it to this event: the Tyrrell team brought the new Tyrrell 001 plus Stewart's usual March 701; Lotus brought one Lotus 72 for Rindt, BRM brought two BRM P153s for Jack Oliver to try, Surtees had his TS7, and Rob Walker had a new Lotus 72 at last for Hill. De Adamich and the McLaren M14D were missing, as was the De Tomaso, both due to a lack of engines. Rain meant that the grid was a bit of a lottery, Stewart electing to start the Tyrrell from the back after its engine had failed twice during practice, instead of using the March, and Rindt and Hill were well back after problems in practice.
