Notes on the cars:

  1. GRD 374 [088-F3] (Alex Dias Ribeiro): New to Alex Dias Ribeiro and raced in British F3 in 1974 with Hollywood sponsorship, winning at Snetterton in May. Crashed at Cadwell Park in July and replaced with a new car.
  2. GRD 374 [089-F3?] (Marcos Moraes): New to Team Brasil for Marcos Moraes to race in British F3 in 1974.

Sold for 1975 to Doug Bassett and continued in British F3, but identified now as 090-F3. Bassett reappeared briefly at the start of 1976 in this car. Subsequent history unknown.

The identification of individual cars in these results is based on the material presented elsewhere in this site and may in some cases contradict the organisers' original results.

These British Formula 3 results have been compiled by Chris Townsend using the main British magazines Autosport and Motoring News but also the US magazine On Track which carried surprisingly good coverage of the British series.
