Notes on the cars:

  1. March 81A (Toshio Suzuki): A second-hand March 81A raced by Toshio Suzuki in the 1982 JAF Formula Pacific series, entered by Team Harukuni Takahashi(?) and fitted with a Toyota 2T-G engine. Raced by Suzuki at all 11 races. Unknown after 1982.
  2. March 79B (Akira Hagiwara): Takao Wada drove a March 79B in Japanese Formula Pacific in 1979, entered by Tomei Jidousha. The car replaced a Falcon 78A that Wada had raced earlier in the season, and both cars were fitted with Nissan LZ14 engines. Wada retained the 79B for the early part of 1980, and then swapped to a Hayashi 80P. Kenji Takahashi then raced a 79B for Tomei Jidousha for the remainer of the 1980 season, so it is likely that this was the ex-Wada car. Raced again by Takahashi in 1981 and in 1982. Later in 1982, Akira Hagiwara raced a 79B entered by Tomei Jidousha and this is assumed to be the same car. Subsequent history unknown.
