Notes on the cars:

  1. Lola T330 [HU14] (Glenn Brown): See full history: Lola T330 HU14.
  2. McRae GM1 [006] (D. David France): See full history: McRae GM1/006.
  3. Lola T460 [HU3] (Steve Jizmagian): New to Steve Jizmagian (San Francisco, CA) and raced in SCCA Nationals and IMSA Formula Atlantic races in 1976. Retained for 1977 for Californian SCCA Nationals and Regionals. Retained again for 1978, again for Californian SCCA Nationals and Regionals. Retained by Jizmagian for 1979, but destroyed in an accident at Westwood in June 1979. What was left was broken for spares.
  4. March 74B (Bob Tracy): Bob Tracy (Hillsboro, OR) acquired a March 74B with BDA engine to race in ICSCC events in 1976. The car was acquired for him by Sans Thompson, who recalls that it came from Don Breidenbach. He appeared again with the car in early 1977. Subsequent history unknown, but likely to be the orange #32 74B entered by Tom Black (Lake Oswego, OR) for the Rose Cup Races in 1980.
  5. Brabham BT29 [9] (Bill Hill): This early chassis number would have raced in 1969 but its first owner is still unknown. Working backwards from its modern ownership, it would have been the black-and-yellow BT29 raced by Allan Lader (Gresham, OR), until Lader got a new 1970-spec BT29 in July. The older car was sold to Ron Householder (Portland, OR) and raced by him in SCCA, CASC and ICSCC events in 1971, 1972 and 1973. Householder sold it to Paul Anderson (Huntington Beach, CA) who entered it for Pete Halsmer in SCCA events in 1974. Then to Bill Hill (Olympia, WA) in March 1975. Hill drove this car, mainly in ICSCC events, until April 1980 at least, and Hill advertised the car "for rent" in mid-1980. Retained by Hill until his death. It was sold by his widow to David Irwin (Evergreen, CO) in December 2017.
  6. Brabham BT21B (Rodger J Lang): Rodger J Lang (Portland, OR) raced a Formula C Brabham from 1973 to 1976. In September 1975, he advertised a Brabham BT21B with 130 bhp Cosworth SCA engine, indicating that it was 1000cc, not 1100cc, and a six-speed gearbox. It is likely that this was the same Brabham he raced through all four seasons. Nothing more known.
  7. Brabham BT38 [22] (Dick Zibert): New to Frank Williams for his Italian customer Giancarlo Gagliardi, and run in F2 in 1972 using Cosworth BDE engines maintained by Novamotor. Gagliardi first appeared in the car at Crystal Palace at the end of May, where he was one of the slowest. After three more uninspiring performances, he dropped out, and the BT38 was next seen at the Rothmans 50,000 in August, where it was entered by Robs Lamplough's Fiddlers Three Racing for Tony Trimmer, having been acquired by Lamplough the Friday before the race. Trimmer could not qualify, but finished fifth in a short consolation race. It was acquired by David Cole for 1973, but used mainly in libre racing. The car appeared once in Formula Atlantic in 1974, driven by Donald MacLeod who had borrowed it from Cole. It was then exported to the US, and was next seen in the hands of Dick Zibert (Tiburon, CA) in mid-1975. Carl von Doymi (Greenbrae, CA) reportedly "tried out" Zibert's Brabham when it first appeared in July 1975. Zibert had moved up through Formula Vee and Formula Super Vee, and raced the white #11 Brabham BT38 in North Pacific Division SCCA Nationals and Regionals until 1978. Towards the end of Zibert's time with the car, he cut off the tub's outer skins in an attempt to make a ground-effect car, but this was aborted, and the car was sold to John Hafkenschiel in November 1988, as a pile of parts. Hafkenschiel had the tub repaired by Marc Bahner, who used Hafkenschiel's BT38B tub as a template.
  8. Brabham BT40 [37] (Ron Householder): Sold new via Fred Opert to Al Lader (Gresham, OR) and used in the Canadian Formula B championship. Lader crashed in practice at Sanair in June, and it is unclear whether BT40-37 was the car Lader used all season, repaired as required, or whether it was a new car supplied after the Sanair accident. Lader won four races that season and would have won the championship if it had been open to non-Canadians. Sold to Ron Householder (Portland, OR) for 1974, and fitted with a BDA engine for the Canadian series, which was now to Formula Atlantic rules. Also raced in SCCA racing that year, where it was moved up to the Formula A class as the BDA was not allowed into Formula B until 1975. Householder continued to race this car in SCCA and ICSCC racing for the rest of the 1970s. It was then stored in an aircraft hanger until late 2011, when it was acquired by Collin Jackson (Langley, British Columbia, Canada), who had been a teenage crew member for Householder in the 1970s. The car was restored over the next three years by Jackson and Andy Pearson of Specialty Engineering, and it was raced by Jackson in vintage racing in 2015.
  9. Brabham BT38 [19] (Tom Foster): Brand new for Tom Belsø at Oulton Park at the end of March 1972, entered by Team Viking. Raced by Belsø in F2 all season, then converted to Formula Atlantic for a couple of races late in the year. For sale during much of 1973, then to Tom Foster (Modesto, CA) for SCCA Formula B and ICSCC events from 1974 to 1977. Ron Householder (Portland, OR) then bought it for the engine, and sold the car in July 1978 to Kevin Skinner (Langley, BC, Canada). He won the ICSCC Formula B class in 1979, winning his class in seven races. In 2013, he still owned the car.
  10. Brabham BT29 [14?] (Lou Pavesi): Believed to be chassis BT29-14, this was the car raced by Mike Hiss (Delran, NJ/Laurel, MD) at Sears Point in June 1970, and then sold to Ernie Haze (Palo Alto, CA) for 1971. Haze drove the car in Northern Pacific Division SCCA Formula B in 1971, but his appearances were relatively rare. He won at Riverside in February 1983, then appeared on the entry list for the Laguna Seca June Sprints in 1973 in a red-and-gold #89 Brabham entered by Stigall Motors. The BT29 then went to Lou Pavesi (Los Altos Hills, CA) around 1976, then Frank Bramante (El Cerrito, CA/San Pablo, CA) by 1978, and via Tom Fugate (San Jose, CA) and John Treder (Santa Clara, CA) to John Hafkenschiel (Sacramento, CA) by the mid-1980s. Pavesi inspected the car in Hafkenschiel's garage and identified it as the ex-Hiss/ex-Haze car that he had owned previously. It entered Australia via Steve Pike in 1991 where it was owned by Jim McConville and run in historic racing. It was sold to Steve Lunn in 2006 and then to Max Pearson in 2010.
