Notes on the cars:

  1. Brabham BT21 ["BT21-9"] (Al Justason): According to a biography of Bill Stone, his 1968 Formula 3 Brabham started out as a crashed BT18 frame bought from Frank Williams. Stone built this car up and entered it as a BT18/21B in European F3 events in the latter half of 1968. Early in 1969, Stone appeared with a Brabham powered by a Ford twin cam engine and said to be a BT21B when he raced it at Silverstone in April and as a BT21A when Del Bennett drove it at Silverstone in May. It was also used by Stone in the non-championship Spanish GP where its chassis number was given as "BT21-8". This car was then sold to Al Justason (Toronto, Ontario) for Formula B racing in 1969. Photographs of the car in Justason's ownership who that it had BT18 upper bodywork and it is now believed that this "BT21", despite its chassis plate, was actually Stone's BT18-based car from 1968. Justason sold the car to dealer Joe Grimaldi as a rolling chassis and its subsequent history is unknown.
  2. Brabham BT21 (Peter Roberts): 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.
  3. Brabham BT21C (Howard Brown): From May 1968 to September 1969, Howard Brown (Paoli, PA or Malvern, PA) raced in Pro Formula B and in NEDiv in a Brabham, identified by the Sep 1968 Lime Rock entry list as a BT21C. Brown ran as #76 in 1968 and #69 in 1969 but the colour and identity of the Brabham are not yet known.

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.
