Notes on the cars:

  1. Brabham BT6/BT9 [FJ-19-63] (Nick Dioguardi): To Grand Prix International (Los Angeles, CA) and first seen when raced by Kurt Neumann in a SCCA race in the car park of Dodger Stadium in December 1963. Raced by Bruce Kessler (Beverly Hills, CA) in SCCA Nationals in early 1964 but crashed at Del Mar in March. Then raced by Lothar Motschenbacher (also Beverley Hills, CA) in May and then by Neumann again in June. Sold to Nick Dioguardi (Glendale, CA) and run in the new Formula C in 1965 and 1966. Despite competition from SCA-engined cars, Dioguardi won the 1966 Run-Offs in this car. Last seen when advertised by Alan Bouverat (Saratoga, FL) in December 1967 so this would be the FC Brabham that Bouverat raced in the War Bonnett SCCA Nationals in October 1967. Subsequent history unknown.

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.

US information has been taken from SCCA results sheets with additional information from Autoweek race reports and from some entry lists. Thanks to David McKinney and Wolfgang Klopfer for providing these. Identifying the classes and model of some entries has proved very difficult so all new information would be welcomed.

All comments, clarifications, corrections and additions are most welcome. Please email Allen if you can add anything.
