Notes on the cars:

  1. Brabham BT21 (Wayne Spears): Peter Roberts (Granby, Quebec) and his mechanic Wayne Spears (Chomedey, Quebec) raced a Brabham "BT21" in Formula B in 1968 and 1969. Spears drove the car again in 1970 when it was listed at Harewood Acres as a BT21C. Nothing more known.
  2. Stebro-Chevron B14 [FB-68-10?] (Peter W. Broeker): Canadian veteran Peter W. Broeker (Pt. Claire, Quebec) bought a Chevron B14 for 1968 and surviving Chevron records imply that it was chassis number FB-68-10. Used in SCCA pro events and also in Canadian Eastern Zone Formula Championship and Championnat de Formule du Québec races in 1968. Retained for 1969 and raced in the Canadian Road Racing Championship and the Molson Championship, often entered as a Stebro-Chevron. Presumably the car raced by Bill Eagles (Lasalle, Quebec) in Molson events in 1970 and in the Players FB series in 1971. If Eagles did own it, then it must have returned to Broeker as it was bought from Broeker's estate by Jerry Jones. Jones sold it to Roger Fountain who moved to England in 1988 and sold the car to Chris Ball who had it restored for HSCC racing in the UK.
