Notes on the cars:

  1. March 782/79B [782-10] (Chris Cramer): Bernard de Dryver's car at Thruxton 27 Mar 1978 and presumably all season; run by Bob Salisbury Racing. To Godfrey Crompton's Douglas & Gavin for Chris Cramer in hillclimbs in 1979. Retained for Cramer to use in 1980, when he won the British championship. Sold to Jimmy Jack (Evanton, Scotland) for hillclimbs from 1981 to 1983. The car evidently returned to Cramer, as he used it once in the 1987 season, at Harewood. Cramer sold the car in 1989 to Wolfgang Bode (Germany), who started the restoration but did not complete it. It was sold to Franz Guggemos in 2004, and he sold the Hart engine and restored it with a BMW engine, restoring it to 782 bodywork after it had been hillclimbed without sidepods. Initially rebuild in Eddie Cheever's livery, it was run in German historic hillclimbs in 2008, but was badly damaged in practice for a Historic F2 race at Spa in 2010. Repainted in de Dryver's Paris Match livery by 2015.
  2. March 743 [22] (Colin Myles): New to Ippokampos Racing for Australian racer Buzz Buzaglo to use in British and European F3 in 1974. Used by Tom Pryce at the Monaco GP F3 support race. Sold to Bob Arnott for 1975 and retained for the first few weeks of the 1976 season. Sold to Colin Myles (Holmes Chapel, Cheshire) and fitted with a 1098cc Hart engine for hillclimbs from 1979 or earlier.
