Notes on the cars:

  1. March 733 [713M-1?] (Livio Franzoso): New to Eifelland Wohnwagenbau for Hannelore Werner to race in German and European F3 in 1971. To Heinz Lange for 1972 but sold early in the season to Scuderia Italia and raced by Piergiovanni Tenani, Clois Avigni and "Shangri-Là" (Romano Martini) in Italian F3 that year. Sold to Livio Franzoso for 1973 and continued to be raced by him in Italian F3 until the end of 1975. Franzoso entered the car as a 733 so it may well be one of the unidentified 733s raced in Italy after that date. History then unknown until Marcel Biehl (Mönchengladbach, Germany) posted pictures of the unrestored car on Facebook in November 2013. Immaculately restored and raced by Biehl in 2015.
