Notes on the cars:

  1. Lotus 59 [59-FB-13?] (Jacques Couture): Jacques Couture (Laval, Montréal, Quebec, Canada) raced a Lotus 59 in Formula B in 1969, appearing in the Quebec Region's Molson Championship events in Canada, and in two SCCA Pro events at Lime Rock. He won four Molson Championship races, finishing second in the championship. In 1970, Couture raced one of the pair of new Lotuses entered by the new Jim Russell Racing Driver School which had just opened at Mont Tremblant, but may have used his 1969 car in one or two races at the start of the year. Subsequent history unknown.
  2. Stebro 'Mk 5' [Chevron B14] (Peter W. Broeker): Canadian veteran Peter W. Broeker (Pt. Claire, Quebec) bought a Chevron B14 for 1968 and surviving Chevron records imply that it was chassis number FB-68-10. Used in SCCA pro events and also in Canadian Eastern Zone Formula Championship and Championnat de Formule du Québec races in 1968. Retained for 1969 and raced in the Canadian Road Racing Championship and the Molson Championship, often entered as a Stebro-Chevron. Then apparently retained by Broeker until 1974, when he used it in a few races. After Broeker's death in late 1980 the B14 was bought from his estate by Gerry Jones. Jones sold it to Roger Fountain who moved to England in 1988, and sold the car to Chris Ball who had it restored for HSCC racing in the UK.
  3. Titan Mk3 (Ken Huband): Ken Huband (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) raced a Formula C Titan in several races at Mont-Tremblant in 1968. At the 25 May 1969 race, Huband's car wasn't described but in later races it was called a Titan Mk 3 or a Titan-Ford. This is presumably one of the 1968 Formula 3 cars but its identity is currently unknown. Huband bought a new Brabham BT29 for 1970 and the Titan disappears but it's possible that it was converted to Formula Ford.
