Notes on the cars:

  1. Brabham BT38C [13] (Thorbjörn Carlsson): Unknown in 1972 but likely to be one of the car raced by Tony Brise, Brian McGuire or Alessandro Guidetti.
  2. Brabham BT28 [43] (Mats Peterson Paninder): A new car for Gustaf Dieden which first appeared at Karlskoga in August 1970 and raced in Scandinavian F3. Then hired by Torsten Palm, who had previously raced a BT28 for Picko Troberg's Mennen Racing Team, and used as a private entry in the Torneio Brasileiro de Formula 3. Retained by Palm in 1000cc form for the start of the 1971 Swedish F3 series as his new 1600cc BT35 was not yet ready. To Leif Engström 1972-1975 then Mats Peterson Paninder 1976 and 1977. Subsequent history unknown.
