Notes on the cars:
- March 71BM  (Ian Coristine): Gordie Dewar was appointed March importer into Canada for 1971 and his first purchase, chassis 71BM/1, went to Delta Racing Developments for Ian Coristine to race in the Players FB series. Coristine finished the season fifth in the red #50 March but crashed in practice for the final race, at Circuit Ste-Croix in October. The car went to Reg Scullion for 1972 and he started the season racing in Nationals in Texas before returning to Canada for the Players season. Run by Ecurie Canada and Tom Greatorex, Scullion ended the Canadian season in ninth place but then returned to the US to finish second in the SCCA Run-Offs. He retained the car for 1973 as a Scullion-Donolo Racing entry. Subsequent history unknown.
- Chevron B15 [B14] (Bill Eagles): 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.
