Notes on the cars:

  1. Alpine A441 [4411] (Gérard Larrousse): Team Archambeaud acquired a new A441 for 1974 for lead driver Gérard Larrousse. The car was used as a test chassis for the 2.1-litre turbo engine and won at Mugello at the beginning of 1975. It was kept as a backup car for Le Mans in 1976 but it is not yet certain whether chassis 4411 then became chassis 4420.
  2. Alpine A441 [4410] (Alain Serpaggi): Société Alpine entered two new A441s in 1974 and chassis 4410 was Jean-Pierre Jabouille's car for the first race and then became Alain Serpaggi's regular car for the rest of the season. This car was sold to 'Jimmy' Mieusset for the 1976 French hillclimb season and then to Jean Ortelli for 1977 and 1978, after which it was on display in the Mougins museum, still owned by Ortelli. The car was still in the Musée de l'Automobile at Mougins in June 2008 and appeared at Retromobile in 2010.
  3. March 74S [10] (Jean Ragnotti): Built new for 1974, fitted with a BMW engine and entered by March Engineering for Jean Ragnotti in the European 2-litre Sports Car championship, with Antar sponsorship. Fitted with a Richardson FVC after the first few races, and later with a Cosworth BDG. Retained by March for 1975, fitted with a Hart 420R engine, updated to 75S specification and plated as '75S-U2' for John Lepp to race. The car was retained again for 1976, now to 76S specification and reportedly using the identity '76S-1', now raced by Lepp as part of the Ultramar team. Sold to Bobby Brown (Hicksville, NY) for the 1977 Can-Am season, now using the identity '77ST-1'. Sold to Greg Sorrentino (Troy, Michigan) and raced in 1979. In 1980, it was converted to centre-seat specification with a new body fabricated by Dave Craddock and campaigned in this form by Sorrentino in 1981, described as a March 802. To Charlie Monk (Sarnia, Ontario) for 1982, and then via John Adams Racing & John Kalagian to J. Byron Walker (Detroit, Michigan). Raced by Walker in 1983 and 1984 before being stored. Walker later acquired the 1977 bodywork from EB Lunken, who had used it on his March 73S, and found Lepp's Ultramar livery under the layers of paint. In 2013, Walker was in the process of restoring the car to its 1975 specification.
  4. Alpine A441 [4412] (Jean-Pierre Jabouille): The third A441 was the regular car of Société Alpine team leader Jean-Pierre Jabouille. This car was sold to Japan in 1975 and was raced by Jabouille at Fuji in October and by Beaumont at Fuji a month later. The car remained in Japan and raced in 1976, 1977 and 1978, winning the Fuji 500 km in April 1978 driven by Hasemi and Hoshino. It is believed to have remained in Japan.
  5. Lola T294 [HU74] (Giovanni Morelli): According to Lola records, HU74 was sold to I.P.E. Italy. IPE was the sponsor of Giovanni Morelli's cars in Italy in 1973 and 1974. The car was fitted with a Ford-based Armaroli Negrini engine.
  6. Lola T292 [HU58] (Jean-Louis Lafosse): Acquired in May 1973 by Jean-Louis Lafosse to run in 2-litre racing as part of Ecurie Filipinetti, who also ran Lafosse's Gitanes-backed 3-litre Lola T282. The project was badly effected by the death of Georges Filipinetti. Lafosse retained the car for the 1974 season and after an unsuccessful run with Osella, moved to the ROC team and raced the T292 at Mugello in September fitted with one of ROC's Simca engines. The car appears to have become part of the ROC equipe and was raced by Xavier Lapeyre at Jarama in October and is believed to have stayed with ROC through 1975. Then likely to be the "ex-Filipinetti" Lola T292 with which Georges Morand won the 2-litre class at Le Mans in 1976. After that it appears to have gone via Heini Mader to Michel Elkoubi and been used in French national races in 1977, for example at the Treffort hillclimb. It was rebuilt for Le Mans again in 1978 as one of Elkoubi's two Pronuptia entries. However, it is unclear which of the #24 and #25 entries it was and, because of this, its later history has not yet been determined.
  7. Lola T292 [HU63] (Mauro Nesti): In August 1973, Mauro Nesti crashed the March 73S with which he'd been dominating Italian hillclimbing and his sponsor Cebora bought a T292, chassis HU63, to replace it. The car was updated to T294 spec for 1974 and Nesti was enormously successful in it for the next three seasons, winning his class in the European Hill Climb Championship in 1975 and 1976. It has been suggested that Nesti had a new T296 for 1977, but it is quite possible that the old T292 was the car he drove in 1977 (taking his third title), 1978 and the early part of 1979 before acquiring a brand new T298 HU98. The subsequent history of the T292 is unknown.
