Notes on the cars:

  1. Lola T210 [SL210/14] (Terry Croker): Terry Croker bought SL210/14 in August 1970 to replace his Lola T70 for use in the Interserie championship. Croker used it in the 1971 European 2-litre series, sharing with Guy Edwards at the Nürburgring in September. It was sold to Rolf Skoghag for 1972 who continued to race it until June 1973. It is then reported to have passed through the hands of Mike Gue and John Webb before reaching Bill Sainsbury (Vancouver, Canada) for 1976. After racing in DSR in 1976 it is reported to have passed via MacKenzie Racing 1977 and at least one other Canadian owner to Robert Grant (UK) in 1985 who sold it to Bengt Ljungbergh (Sweden) later that year. Ljungbergh retained it to 2007 when it was sold via Chris Fox to Geoff Lister. It was for sale in November 2010.
  2. Alfa Romeo T33/3 (Klaus Reisch): One of the early 1971 Alfa Romeo T33/3s was sold to Austrian amateur Klaus Reisch and entered by Hubert Ascher, the Austrian Alfa importer. We on first time out at Montlhéry in a French national event, narrowly beating Claude Swietlik's Lola T210. He was fifth in the Wunstorf race in August, winning the sparse over 2000cc class, but crashed heavily in the Interserie event at Imola on 12 September. The car aquaplaned into the pit wall and burst into flames. The driver was thrown out and later died from his injuries.
  3. Chevron B19 [71-3] (Heinz Derflinger): Originally sold to Richard Shardlow but after a single race, co-driven by Terry Croker, Shardlow decided not to continue with the car and it was sold to Heinz Derflinger. He only raced it a few times and sold it for 1972 to fellow German Jörg Zaborowski for Interserie and other sports car races. In 1973, Zaborowski crashed the B19 at a German hillclimb and it was rebuilt by Zaborowski at Chevron's on a new B21 frame. Zaborowski continued to raced the car well into 1975 before acquiring a newer B31. Sold to Kent Abrahamsson in Sweden in 1997 - Nigel James (UK) 2008 - Irvine Laidlaw (UK) 2011.
  4. Martin BM8 [BM7-1?] (Edward Negus): The Martin BM7 was raced by Brian Martin in 1970 and then by Edward Negus in 1971, during which time it was fitted with a 1600cc FVA engine and was sometimes described as a BM8. In 1972, the car was rebodied by Martin as a "BM9C" with a Chevron B16-style centre section and sold to Chris and Mike Oates who used it in club racing. The next few years are unclear but by 1976 it had been sold to Peter-Paul Durig in Switzerland and was used in Swiss national events over the next five seasons. In 1982, it returned to the UK when Richard Brown bought it from Durig (the BM10 going in the opposite direction). It was then sold to Jim Gathercole who restored it back to BM7 specification and raced it in historics for three seasons. It then went to Karl-Reiner Vogeler in Mar 1986 and to Bernd Seidler in Mar 1993. Seidler restored the car again in 1999 and it was offered for sale by Bonhams in 2004 and 2005. Subsequent history unknown.
  5. Chevron B19 [71-24] (Bernd Terbeck): Chassis 71-24 was sold to Harry Hundt, head of Duckhams Oils Germany, who hired Bernd Terbeck to race the car in German national events. Terbeck retired early in 1972 and Hundt then entered it for Heinz Wechsler in 1973 and 1974, mainly in Bergrennen. Hundt then wound up his team but passed the Chevron to Wechsler who continued to race it in 1975 before selling it to Rolf Farber in mid-1976. It then passed to Wilfried Güllert for 1977 then Dieter Josting in 1981 and Claus-Peter Beckhäuser in 1983 when it moved into historic racing. The car passed to Robert Harvey in 2004 and to Peter McLaughlin (Hannover, NH) late 2008. It was for sale with at Grand Prix Classics (La Jolla, CA) in May 2011.
  6. Martin BM8 [1] (Brian Martin): The Martin BM8 was Brian Martin's regular car for the 1971 season and was then sold to David Good for hillclimbs in 1972. Good came very close to winning the class-based Leaders title, only to crash on his first class run at the final round of the championship. The BM8 was raced by Richard Brown in hillclimbs in 1974 and 1975, and by John Stuart in 1976 before fading from view for a few years. It was with Simon Phillips in 1982 and then raced by Stoic Racing (Ian Harrower, John Piper and others) with a BDX engine in 1983-84. It passed through the hands of Ian Barrowman and Mike Campbell-Cole in the 1990s before landing with Howard Matloff (San Diego, CA) by 1998.
  7. Lola T212 [SL210/8?] (Hans Schulze-Schwering): The Lola T210 of Walter Lehmann (Hungen, Hesse, Germany) was identified as chassis 8 when it appeared at the 1970 Spa 500 km. Lehman had been using the car in hillclimbs. Believed to be the car entered by Auto-Lehmann-Racing-Team for Hans Schulze-Schwering (Munster, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany) in 1971 and then entered by Hans Schulze Schwering for Alex Janda (Höchberg, Bavaria, Germany) in 1972. In November 1972, it was reported that Janda's "T212" had been sold to a Brazilian for a South American series expected to take place in January 1973.
  8. Chevron B19 [71-22] (Clemens Schickentanz): Paul Kersten bought a Chevron B19 via dealer Jo Siffert for Clemens Schickentanz to race in 1971. Its history after 1971 is uncertain but it appears to have been the "B21" (later "B23" and even "B26") raced in French hillclimbs by Jacky Daumet (Alès, France) from 1973 to 1977.
