Notes on the cars:

  1. Chevron B15 [F3-69-10] (Iain McLaren): New to Natalie Goodwin's Goodwin Racing for Cyd Williams to race in European F3 from June 1969 onwards, replacing the team's well-used Brabham BT21B. Retained for early 1970 when it was raced by Williams and Ian Ashley, then sold to dealer Bobby Howlings. To Iain McLaren (Broxburn, Scotland) for 1971 and raced in Scottish hillclimbs in the 1300cc single seater class. To Kenny Allen and continued in Scottish hillclimbs in 1972 and 1973. Unknown after 1973 until advertised by Bobby Howlings' Cheshire Sports Cars Ltd as a rolling chassis in July 1975. The car was bought from Howlings by Simon Price (Shrewsbury), who kept it, unused, for 20 years until selling it to George Jack in June 1996. The car still had its 1000cc F3 engine and Hewland gearbox and Jack completely rebuilt the car. Jack then relocated to New Zealand in January 1988, taking the car with him, and won his class in the 1998/99 Thoroughbred & Classic Car Owners Club (TACCOC ) historic championship. He later fitted a 1500cc pre crossflow Ford engine, and then a Formula B Lotus twin cam and Hewland Mk 5.
  2. Lola T55 [SL64/1] (Ted Dzierzek): New to Midland Racing Partnership for Bill Bradley to drive in F2 in 1964. Driven later in the season for MRP by Richie Ginther, Tony Maggs and Dickie Attwood, the latter finishing second at Albi in September. Retained by MRP for 1965 and raced by, amongst others, Chris Amon and Paul Hawkins. Sold to Bill Jones for Phillip Robinson to drive in F2 and in libre in 1966. Then to Tony Charnell (Dumfries, Scotland) for 1967 and fitted with a 1.6-litre Ford twin-cam for libre racing, mainly at Ingliston but sometimes venturing south to Croft and even Silverstone. Retained for 1968 and 1969 and then sold to Iain McLaren (Broxburn, Scotland) for Scottish sprints and hillclimbs. Then to Ted Dzierzek (Edinburgh, Scotland) for Scottish hill climbs in 1971, still with its twin cam engine. Subsequent history unknown but possibly the T55 twin cam hillclimbed by Peter Stahl (Ascot, Berkshire) in 1972.
  3. Brabham BT30X [1] (David Fyfe): New to Bob Jennings (Puttenham, Surrey) and fitted with a 2-litre Climax FWMV V8 engine. Used in the 1969 British Hill Climb Championship by Jennings, sharing with Mike MacDowel (Guildford, Surrey) who won at Bouley Bay in July and finished second at Rest-and-Be-Thankful and Craigantlet. Retained for 1970 when MacDowel won at Doune. Jennings continued with the car in 1971 but had Roy Lane fit it with a 3.7-litre Buick V8. To David Fyfe (Edinburgh) for 1972, then to Murray McGrath (Edinburgh) for 1973 but crashed at Doune and sold to Hamish McLean (Fife). Then unknown until owned by Barrie Dutnall (Gillingham, Kent) and raced at Lydden Hill in 1979. In 1980, Dutnall stripped the car of its engine and suspension, which were used on a new car built around a BT40 tub. The BT30X reappeared in 1985 when sold by David Rishworth (Leamington Spa, Warwickshire) to Ted Walker (Dursley, Gloucestershire), who sold it to Peter Coleman (Lenham, Kent) about six months later. Believed to have been restored with a new F2-style BT30 chassis and sold to Japan, while the original chassis and some other original parts passed via Simon Hadfield (Shepshed, Leicestershire) to Steve Worrad (Whitchurch, Shropshire) in 2005. The chassis and accumulated parts to Neil Glover (Ansty, West Sussex) 2008 and then to Chris Keen (Fritham, Hampshire) in 2009.
