Notes on the cars:

  1. Toleman TG280H [10] (Jimmy Jack): New to Chris Cramer (Stroud, Gloucestershire) and fitted with a 2.5-litre Hart engine for the British Hill Climb Championship in 1981. Retained by Cramer for 1982. Sold to Jimmy Jack (Evanton, Scotland) and Jim McGaughey for 1983 and converted to a GT with Lancia 037 bodywork and a BMW F2 engine. Debuted by Jack at Doune and raced by McGaughey in British GT racing in 1984 and 1985. In 1994, the car reappeared in Finland where it was raced by Ahti Juusela with a Ford engine, and in 1995 with a Mazda engine. It was then acquired by Jari Kämäräinen's team and raced by him, still with the Mazda engine, from 1996 to 2000, winning the Finnish championship in 1997. After a change to the rules, the car was stored until 2006 when it was raced again under Estonian rules. The engine broke after a race in 2007. Subsequent history unknown.
