Qualifying
Qualifying information not available

Notes on the cars:

  1. March 733 [3] (Russell Wood): New to Russell Wood and run for him in the British F3 series by Peter Bloore Racing with backing from The Chequered Flag. Wood won three early round of the championship but had a heavy accident at Zandvoort in May and did not win again. Sold to Australian Ian Douglass for 1974 and rebuilt for Australian F2, using various 742 bits. The car was involevd in a fire during private testing at Oran Park after the Lakeside race in December 1974 and was completely burnt to the ground.
  2. March 733 [26] (Mike Wilds): New to Dempster International Racing Team for Mike Wilds to drive in F3 from July 1973 onwards, replacing the 1972/73 Ensign with which he had started the season. It was then sold to Graham Watts (Faringham) for hillclimbs, appearing at Prescott in March 1974, when the car had a 1600cc Holbay engine. During 1975, the car was bought by Terry Smith (Felton, Somerset) to replace his highly successful 1-litre Vixen Imp. Smith raced the March in sprints and hillclimbs through the rest of 1975 and through 1976, using a 1600cc Holbay Ford twin cam engine, but in the summer of 1976, bought the ex-F1 McLaren M14D. The March was sold to Geoff Hunt (Andover, Hampshire), again with the Holbay twin cam, and used in sprints for quite a few years. Eventually traded to Richard Speakman for the ex-F3 Pilbeam MP51. Subsequent history unknown.
  3. Brabham BT38C [19] (Jimmy Fuller): New to Canadian driver Chris O'Brien and raced in British F3 in 1972 using Holbay engines. To Jimmy Fuller for 1973, again in British F3, then to David Taylor for Kim Mather to race in British Formula Atlantic in 1974, and then in libre. At some point during this period the car was rebuilt on a 1973 BT40 monocoque. Also raced by Ted Payne during 1974, and Payne then took over the car in 1975, appearing mainly in libre races at Croft. To John Simpson for 1976, again in Croft libre, and later reported to be the car raced by David Proctor (Jedburgh) in Monoposto between 1981 and 1985. Presumably the car Proctor used to win the 1600cc class in the Classic F3 series in 1994 but Proctor had two BT38Cs, the second raced by his son Seb Proctor. Not run again after 1996 and by 2004, both cars were with Mark Barton (Haslemere, Surrey). Barton raced a BT38C in the Classic F3 race at Brands Hatch in June 2008.
