North East Division SCCA Formula B 1973

Ken Duclos upgraded from his Brabham BT29 to the latest Brabham BT40, and retained his NEDiv Formula B title. His closest competitor was Sebby Barrone, who retained his March 722 and had a much better season in it. Duclos also won the Runoffs at the end of the season.

Despite a Brabham taking the title, NEDiv saw a continued increase in sales of Marchs, with five new March 73Bs added to the divisions stocks of 722s.

Northeast Division sources

Most of our knowledge of NEDiv racing comes from the SCCA's Sports Car magazine and from Competition Press & Autoweek. We are very keen to acquire or borrow 1960s, 1970s and 1980s copies of SCCA regional publications from this Division. These include:

  • Pit Talk (New England Region)
  • The Drift (Steel Cities Region)
  • Knock Off (Mohawk-Hudson Region)
  • Regional Review (New York Region)
  • Spark Plug (Glen Region)
  • The Spokesmen (Philadelphia Region)
  • The Straightpipe (Washington DC Region)
  • Top End Magazine (Finger Lakes Region)

Additionally, Racing Magazine was published as a Lime Rock track magazine.

We are also keen to get scans of entry lists from SCCA Nationals in this Division.
