Notes on the cars:

  1. March 705 [3] (Gerald Lieberg): New for Bill Gubelmann (Oyster Bay, NY) and used in the later races of the 1970 SCCA Formula B championship. Unknown in 1971 but reappeared in 1972 with Gerald Lieberg (Milford, CT), who drove it in the North Atlantic Road Racing Championship Regional series in NEDiv. Lieberg advertised the car in Competition Press & Autoweek in December 1972 and January 1973 as "ex-Gubelmann".
  2. Brabham BT29 (Pete Regna): Matt Spitzley (then from Aspen, CO), had a Brabham BT29 for 1970 entered by his Spitzford Racing team (Detroit, Michigan). For 1971 the car was sold to Mike Rand (Riverside, CT/Greenwich, CT) who raced it in NEDiv FB, finishing third overall. It then went to Peter Regna in New Jersey for 1972, after which Regna recalls selling it to Ken Duclos. Duclos, however, does not remember buying it.
  3. Lola T100 (Bob Bottega): Max Mizejewski (Woodland Hills, CA) raced a Lola T100 in Formula B in Southern California in 1970, entered at #97 at least part of the time by Dr Walter H. Martin. Mizejewski and his engine preparer Chuck Willis moved to a new Lola T240 for 1971, and the movements of the T100 are unknown in 1971. Raced by Bob Bollegra (Centerport, NY) in SCCA Regionals in NEDiv in 1972, and advertised by him in December 1972 as "ex-Max Mizejewski". Subsequent history unknown.
