Notes on the cars:

  1. McLaren M10A/B [300-08] (Richard White): See full history: McLaren M10A 300-08.
  2. March 702 (Peter Fisk): Peter Fisk (Cambridge) raced a March 702 in speed events from 1974 to 1979. The car was fitted with a BDA engine, and Fisk sometimes shared with Robert Glass, also of Cambridge. Fisk advertised the car in October 1980. Subsequent history unknown.
  3. Martin BM10 [BM9-1?] (John Corfield): A new car built by Brian Martin late in 1972 and only raced on a handful of occasions. It was sold to John Corfield in 1973 as the BM10 and raced by Corfield and Peter Andrews with a 1600cc FVA engine for the next four years in the orange-and-black livery of Bradshaw Plant Hire. It was then acquired by Richard Simms (Ossett, West Yorkshire) and rebodied as a Skoda Super Saloon. It debuted in this guise at debut at Croft on Easter Monday 1978 and raced in Super Saloons for three seasons: firstly with Simms, then with Malcolm Johnstone from Sep 1978 onwards and then Ian Drew in 1980. It was acquired by Richard Brown in 1982 and restored back to Martin BM10 specification. He sold it to Peter-Paul Durig in Switzerland, apparently in exchange for the Martin BM9C, and he retained it until 1999 when it was sold back to England to George Douglas. Retained by Douglas and used in Orwell Supersports Cup races in 2003 and 2005.
