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. Brabham BT28 [5] (Jack Deaso): New for Keith Jupp and prepared by P & M Racing Preparations for British F3 with Holbay engines. Retained by Jupp for 1970 and raced by Bert Hawthorne on a couple of occasions. Sold via US dealer Joe Grimaldi to Jack Deaso (Stratford, CT) and raced in New England Region SCCA Formula C in 1971 and 1972. To Tony Barbose (Millville, NJ) for 1973, but apparently unraced by him. Bought from Barbose in the late 1970s by Walter Hagstrom (who moved from Tuxedo, NY to Laguna Niguel, CA during his ownership), then to Dave Lewis (Julian, CA) in the early 1980s and then Wayne Mitchell (San Diego, CA) around 1989. Mitchell sold it to Dave Bankes (Los Angeles, CA) in 2005, but bought it back a year later. To Robert Lamplough (London) 2011.
