Notes on the cars:

  1. 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.
  2. Kiki Mk 6A (Tony Simms): Doug McArthur (Toronto, Canada) built a number of one-off racing cars in the late 1960s. These included a Mk 2 that raced in Formula C, a Mk 3 which had a Ford 289 engine and was said to resemble an overgrown Lotus 7, and a Mk 4 that ran in Formula B until Doug Durrell demolished it at Mont Tremblant in July 1969. For 1968, local papers noted that McArthur was planning a Formula A car with a spaceframe chassis and Chevrolet engine. The car was first seen in Canadian Formula A in 1969, when it was driven by Tony Simms (Willowdale, Ontario). It had a mild steel space frame with a few stressed aluminum panels around the cockpit plus the undertray, and used a Hewland LG gearbox and McLaren wheels. The Chevrolet V8 engine was prepared by Dave Billes at Performance Engineering. Simms returned with the car in 1970, but its only documented appearance was at Trois-Rivières in September. It was then sold to John Powell, who was moving up from racing a MGB. Unfortunately, the car got airborne while testing at Harewood Acres and was destroyed. Some surviving components were being used in a Kiki Mk 8 until Powell's budget ran out.

Sources

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.

Results for this series have proved very difficult to complete, due in part to the poor coverage in Canadian magazines such as Track & Traffic. Wolfgang Klopfer has provided Autoweek reports, Don Markle uncovered much material in the CMHF Archives, Jim Ibey found what he could from Track & Traffic and Tom Johnston has provided scans of entry lists and reports from a variety of sources. Also Michael Gee has been busy transcribing motor sports news articles at Vancouver's main library.

Complete results have been found only for R2 St Jovite 25 May 1969 (Autoweek), R2 Westwood 31 May 1970 (Autoweek), R3 Edmonton 14 Jun 1970 (Autoweek and also the official results) and R4 Rockcliffe 1 Jul 1970 (Autoweek and also the official results). The R5 Harewood 16 Aug 1970 results are derived from the Wheelspin report in the 27 May 1970 edition.

Full results are still needed for some races and further help would be greatly appreciated.

Please email Allen if you can add anything.

Individual sources for this event

Entry details are from the British Empire Motor Club's 19th Annual Spring Trophy Races program kindly provided by Don Markle. The entry list for this first round of the "Gulf Canada Series for the Canadian Road racing Championship" omitted Craig Hill but he appears on the entry list for a couple of supporting "Formula Cars" races in a Sports Cars Unlimited Formula Ford Lotus 61. The program describes Broeker's car as a Stebro Mk5 but it is described elsewhere as a Chevron B15B.
