Notes on the cars:

  1. March 74B [6] (Bruce Jensen): New to Bruce Jensen (Kitchener, Ontario, Canada), and raced by him in the Players Canadian Formula Atlantic series. Sold for 1975 to Jean Beaulieu (Quebec City, Quebec, Canada) appeared very briefly at the start of the 1975 series, but he failed to start the opening race after a number of problems that culminated with a rod through the side of the engine. He sold the car to Ron Rogers (Trenton, Ontario), who raced it mostly in club events in 1976 and 1977 before selling it to Jim Close. Rogers ran the car for Close until Close took it back to California. Sold to its current owner in the early 1990s, and retained.
  2. March 74B [8] (Dave Morris): New to Dave Morris (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) and raced by him in the Players Canadian Formula Atlantic series until a major accident at Mosport Park in July. Morris rebuilt the car with a new monocoque from March, and advertised it as an unraced 75B in October 1975. Subsequent history unknown.
  3. Chevron B27 [27-74-08] (Bertil Roos): New to Fred Opert Racing and raced by US-domiciled Swede Bertil Roos in North American Formula Atlantic, and later in the season by a number of guest drivers, including Richard Melville, Bill Brack and Héctor Rebaque. This is then believed to be the "ex-Roos" B27 used by Jim Crawley (Frenchtown, NJ) in a number of SCCA Nationals in 1975, allowing him to qualify for the FB Run-Offs. At the same time, Crawley raced a newer B29 in the British series. The B27 was advertised in November 1975 by George Walsh of Intercontinental Marketing in Philadelphia, PA, Crawley's sponsor at the Run-Offs, describing it as ex-Roos, ex-Crawley and noting track records at Bridgehampton and Palm Beach. Subsequent history unknown.
  4. March 74B [9] (Bobby Brown): New to Bobby Brown (Hicksville, NY) and raced in the British Formula Atlantic series at the start of the year, then moving to North America in May for the Canadian Players series. In June, Brown acquired a new Chevron B27, and the March was traded to Fred Opert as part of the deal. Advertised by Opert in June 1975, and shown as "in stock" in November 1975, with a comment that it had not raced since June 1974. Next seen in late 1978 and again in late 1979, when raced by Peter Moodie (Kingston, Jamaica) in a series of Jamaica National Championship races. Subsequent history unknown
  5. Chevron B27 [27-74-04] (James King): Chevron build record says sold via Fred Opert to Doug Shierson Racing. According to Chevron the car used by James King at Mallory Park before being shipped to the USA. (King and Mead owned their own cars in the Shierson team.) Badly damaged by King at Mosport in July 1974 and rebuilt around a new tub. Formula Mar 75 p29 reports, 'King is trying to sell the B27 he drove in 1974 under Shierson's management'. (King still has the plate for this car.) Sold to Lloyd Callaway (Chicago, IL) and used in 1975 early 1976 SCCA and some pro races. Callaway advises that the car was sold to Fred Opert in early 1976 in p/x for a new Chevron B34. It was bought from Opert by John Connolly (Brooklyn, NY) who raced it in local SCCA and EMRA events in 1976 and 1977. When Connolly bought a new Ralt RT1 in early 1978, the Chevron B27 was bought by Bertil Roos (Blakeslee, PA), who won the Formula Atlantic race at the SCCA 'Bonus' National at Charlotte in April 1979. He then attached fenders to the car and used it in Can-Am, still with its 1600cc Cosworth BDD engine. Roos bought a different Chevron B27 for 1980, and, according to Doug Waters, his 1979 car was sold to someone in California who planned to use it as a sports car with an Alfa Romeo V8 engine. Many years later, in 1999, Sandy Dells Racing (San Diego, CA) sold two B27 tubs to Jim Sparks (San Diego, CA). Dells restored one of these to running condition for Sparks, then sold the other tub and parts on Sparks' behalf to Mike Winebrenner (Louisville, KY) in 2004. Winebrenner was able to identify his monocoque by its SCCA Chicago Region stamping as Lloyd Calloway's 1975 car, but the 74-04 chassis plate is on Sparks' car. Winebrenner's parts were sold in early 2009 to Bud Morrison, who already owned 74-05 and 74-07. It would appear that Sparks' car is built on the original tub, and Morrison's is the replacement tub.
  6. Brabham BT40 (Craig Hill): Craig Hill (Missassagua, Ontario, Canada) raced a white #2 Brabham BT40 in the Players Canadian Formula B series in 1973, entered by Fother Hill Ltd with sponsorship from Castrol GTX. Retained by Hill for 1974 and fitted with a Cosworth BDA engine for the new Formula Atlantic series, when it ran as #4. Unknown in 1975. Raced by Howard Kelly (Kingston, Ontario) at the IMSA Formula Atlantic race at Road Atlanta in April 1976, then at a couple of later Players rounds in Canada. Subsequent history unknown.
  7. March 73B (Tim Cooper): Roy Folland (Montréal, Quebec) had a purple #6 March 73B for 1973 but crashed at Trois-Rivières in Sept and after being repaired, the 73B was sold to Ecurie Canada for guest driver Eppie Wietzes to race at the Watkins Glen Pro FB race five weeks later. Then sold to Tim Cooper (Kansas City, MO) who raced the "ex-Ecurie Canada" 73B at a Willow Springs Regional in December 1973. Raced extensively in SCCA racing early in 1974 and then in the Pro F/Atlantic series, prepared by Charlie Williams Racing. Cooper raced a 75B as part of Doug Shierson Racing in 1975, probably a new car. He then went to Wilbur Bunce's team for 1976, and it is possible that the 75B/76B that Bunce built up for him could have been based on the old 73B. The self-entered 77B he had in early 1977 may have been this car again. It might even have been the ex-Cooper March "78B" later entered by Ted Titmas in 1978 and 1979. The latter years of this history become increasingly uncertain and we're very keen to talk to Tim Cooper to clarify.
  8. March 74B (side rads) [4] (Syd Demovsky): A dark blue 74B sold by March to US agent Joe Grimaldi, so probably the dark blue "rent-a-March" 74B run by Tom Greatorex for Syd Demovsky (Chicago, IL) in the 1974 Players Canadian Formula Atlantic series. By Edmonton, the second race of the season, the car had been converted to works F2 configuration with side radiators. Subsequent history unknown.
  9. Brabham BT40 (Bill Eagles): Bill Eagles (Lasalle, Montréal, Quebec, Canada) raced a green/yellow #46 Brabham BT40 in the Players Canadian Formula B series in 1973, entered by Tex-Made Racing, Ville La Salle. Also driven by Allan Lader at Sanair in June. Retained by Eagles for 1974, again entered at #46, and fitted with a Cosworth BDA engine after the opening round. Subsequent history unknown.
  10. Chevron B20 [72-7] (Peter Ferguson): Sold via Fred Opert to Ferguson/Wilson Racing Team for 1973, when it was described as brand new. Raced by Peter Ferguson (Toronto, Ontario) in the Canadian FB series. Retained by Ferguson for Formula Atlantic in 1974. According to documentation later submitted to CAMS, the car was owned by Players from 1974 to 1978, then was in storage from 1978 to 1984. It was owned by Alex Polsinello from 1984, then George McLean in 1991, then Russell Sewell in 2010. It was bought by Martin Bullock (Western Australia) in 2011.
  11. March 74B [2] (Joe Grimaldi): New to US March agent Joe Grimaldi, and raced by him and by hire drivers in the 1974 Players Canadian Formula Atlantic series, including David Loring at Mosport in July, and Seb Barone at Sanair. The car was reported by Canadian Motorsport Bulletin in its Mosport Park report to belong to Dale Lang. It is possible that this was the car fitted with F2 bodywork for Patrick Depailler at Trois-Rivières in September. Presumably the car raced by Grimaldi at Waterford Hills in September 1974, but this is uncertain. Subsequent history unknown.
  12. Chevron B27 [27-74-05] (Hugh "Wink" Bancroft): An Fred Opert team car, used by Hugh "Wink" Bancroft (Costa Mesa, CA) in the US series in 1974. The car was owned by Bancroft, who according to Formula and Sports Car retained it unraced in 1975, and then wheeled it out again for a few SCCA So Pac division races in early 1976. Advertised in May 1976. The car now owned by Bud Morrison has a SCCA log book showing it was owned by Ken Valan (Wilmington, DE) in 1978, then Frank Shober (Chatham, NJ) from 1979 to 1985. In October 1988, it was bought from Bruce McQuiston at the Bertil Roos Racing School (Blakeslee PA) by Monte C. Shalett (New Orleans, LA), who sold it via Grand Prix Classics (La Jolla, CA) to Paul Wesselink (Dana Point, CA/Huntington Beach, CA) in June 1997. From Wesselink to Bud Morrison in May 2005.
  13. Rondel M1 (Al Justason): Al Justason (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) raced a Rondel M1 in the Canadian Formula Atlantic series in 1974. According to Chris Townsend, when this car arrived, it was still in the Rondel colour scheme with Pescarolo's name on it, implying it was chassis 206, although Justason had no record of the chassis number himself. When Justason "retired" at the end of the 1974 season, he rented the car to Bob Beyea for a couple of Canadian Formula Atlantic races in 1975. He recalls that he later sold the car to Bill Bovenizer in Toronto. Subsequent history unknown.
  14. Chevron B14/B17b [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 after Broeker's death in late 1980 the B14 was bought from his estate by Gerry Jones. As Broeker had got it back, this is likely to be the "B9/15/17" that Broeker used briefly in 1974. 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.
  15. March 74B [3] (Gilles Villeneuve): New to Ecurie Canada, and raced by Gilles Villeneuve (Berthierville, Quebec, Canada) in the Players Canadian Formula Atlantic series with Schweppes sponsorship. Villeneuve was the newly-crowned world snowmobile champion, but had also raced with success in Formula Ford. For the first two races of the season, this car had standard 74B bodywork and a front radiator, but by Gimli on 16 June, he had a new car in the latest specification, and the older 74B was inherited by Chuck Hansen, whose name was on the side of it at Gimli and who then raced at Sanair as an Ecurie Canada entry in mid-July. It then appears to have passed into the possession of March importer Joe Grimaldi, and was raced as a Race Shop entry by Dale Lang at Road America in late August. It was then updated to the latest F2 specification for George Follmer to drive as an Ecurie Canada entry at Trois-Rivières when it was described as a second Schweppes March 74B originally meant for Hans Stuck. Raced by Bertil Roos at Watkins Glen in October, then hired by Grimaldi to Eric Kerman for the SCCA Runoffs. Sold by Grimaldi to Tom Pumpelly and run for him by Cavanaugh Racing at the opening two races of 1975, but he failed to start either race. Then thought to have gone with Pumpelly to Doug Shierson Racing but exactly how it was used later that season remains unclear. As he advertised the car in January 1976 as a "74-75B", "ex-Follmer/Roos", the strong impression is that the 75B provided for him by Doug Shierson was actually his 74B updated to the latest specification. Subsequent history unknown.
  16. Rondel M1 (Chris O'Brien): Chris O'Brien (Ottawa, Ontario /Halifax, Nova Scotia) raced a Rondel M1 in the Players Canadian Formula Atlantic series in 1974. It was described by Canadian Motorsport Bulletin in June as the "ex-Tom Pryce Titan Properties" car, and when it was advertised by O'Brien in April 1975 as "ex-Scheckter", which would point to it being chassis 204, the only car Scheckter drove, which was then also driven by Pryce from June onwards with Titan Properties sponsorship. O'Brien crashed the car at Mosport in July 1974 and it was rebuilt on a new monocopque in time for Sanair two weeks later. It was advertised in December 1974 as "ex-Scheckter" with spares that included a monocoque, presumably the one damaged at Mosport. O'Brien recalls that he sold the car back to Opert. However, O'Brien recognised the chassis 206 that Randy Zimmer later had as being his car, casting doubt on the identification of it as chassis 204.
  17. Chevron B27 [27-74-07] (George Sabin): Chevron build record says sold via Fred Opert to George Sabin. Used by Alan Lader as well in 1974. Sold to Bobby Fisher (Lafayette, CA) for 1975 and used in some early-season Nationals and one Pro race. To Jim Van Horn (Orange, CA) for 1976 and run in west coast Pro and SCCA racing. Then a strong candidate for the car of Californian Mike Morris in SCCA races in 1977 though this may have been the ex Hayes car from 1975-76. Either this or the Hayes car likely to be the B27 for sale by Crosslé Cars Pacific in 1982. In February 2007, Bud Morrison bought what he believes to be B27-74-07 from Neil Johnson via Fantasy Junction (Emeryville, CA).
  18. Chevron B27 [27-74-03] (Chip Mead): New to Doug Shierson Racing via Fred Opert for Chip Mead (Dayton, OH) to race in Formula Atlantic, initially in the opening races of the British series, then in North America. The car was blue and ran in North America as #23. Sold to Keith Feldott (LaGrange, IL) and raced in SCCA Central Division FB in 1975, 1976 and 1977. Subsequent history unknown.
  19. Chevron B20 [72-4?] (Joe Shepherd): A Chevron B20 raced by Joe Shepherd (Indianapolis, IN) in SCCA Formula B in 1973. Retained by Shepherd for Formula Atlantic in 1974 and 1975. Advertised by Shepherd in February 1976.
  20. March 71BM [10?] (Mauro Lanaro): The talented but cash-strapped Ian Coristine (Montréal, Quebec) had run his own March 71BM in 1971, but for 1972 rented an updated car from Ecurie Canada. The 71BM, probably Wilson Southam's old car, was updated to side-radiator 722 specification by team mechanic Tom Greatorex. Coristine stayed with the team for 1973 but the car was put back to 71BM specification. The team almost ran out of money mid-summer, but were rescued by a sponsorship deal with Schweppes. The 71BM was then sold to Mauro Lanaro (Montréal, Quebec) and used in Canadian Formula Atlantic in 1974. Coristine recalls that this car was destroyed in a transporter fire on its way to a race at Debert, but the exact date of this has yet to be determined. Lanaro then bought another 71BM to replace it.
  21. March 722 (Charles "Chuck" Hansen): Charles Hansen (Tenafly, NJ) raced a yellow #75 March 722 with Falconer bodywork at a few SCCA Northeast Division Nationals and in the Pro races at Sanair and Trois-Rivières in 1973. He ended the season with 13 points in NEDiv. He entered a FB March at the start of 1974, but by the time he finally raced it, at Sanair in July, it appears to have been a new 74B. Whether he retained the 722 for the early part of the season is unclear. Subsequent history unknown.
  22. Rondel M1 [207] (Seb Barone): The car raced by Bob Wolleck for Motul Rondel in F2 in 1973, and believed to be the same car all season. Like most of the team's cars, this went to Fred Opert for 1974 to be converted for use in SCCA Formula B and Canadian Formula Atlantic. Assuming Wolleck used the same car all season, this would then be "ex-Wolleck" car that Seb Barone (Portland, CT/Middletown, CT/Dilliner, PA) remembers buying for 1974. After a season in the Canadian Formula Atlantic series, Barone traded it back to Opert for his 1975 Chevron B29. According to Cy Morland, who owned chassis 207 from 1998 to 2008, the car was owned after Barone by John Stowe in New England for an extended period, so would be the Rondel raced by Stowe in New England Region SCCA Regionals in 1976. Morland had the tub completely rebuilt by Marc Bahner, and then sold the car back to England. Subsequent history unknown.
  23. Brabham BT40 [37] (Ron Householder): Sold new via Fred Opert to Al Lader (Gresham, OR) and used in the Canadian Formula B championship. Lader crashed in practice at Sanair in June, and it is unclear whether BT40-37 was the car Lader used all season, repaired as required, or whether it was a new car supplied after the Sanair accident. Lader won four races that season and would have won the championship if it had been open to non-Canadians. Sold to Ron Householder for 1974, and raced in the Canadian series, which was now to Formula Atlantic rules. Fitted with a BDA for 1975 and raced in Formula Atlantic, and also in Formula A in SCCA racing. Householder continued to race this car in SCCA and ICSCC racing for the rest of the 1970s. It was then stored in an aircraft hanger until late 2011, when it was acquired by Collin Jackson (Langley, British Columbia, Canada), who had been a teenage crew member for Householder in the 1970s. The car was restored over the next three years by Jackson and Andy Pearson of Specialty Engineering, and it was raced by Jackson in vintage racing in 2015.
  24. March 74B [73B-2] (Richard Paul): New to Richard Paul (North Hollywood, CA), and first raced it at the Phoenix SCCA National in February 1973 where it was entered as #48, sponsored by Fire Suppression Inc. Paul crashed heavily at Trois-Rivières in September. Paul retained the car for 1974, when it was usually described as a 74B, but wrapped it around a lamppost in practice for the St Johns Formula Atlantic race in July 1974. The car was rebuilt but may have used an older 722 monocoque. Paul entered it as a 742 in races in early 1975. Subsequent history unknown.
