Notes on the cars:
- Brabham BT16/21B (John Taylor): In 1976, John Taylor (North Petherton, Somerset) ran a Brabham BT16/21B in sprints. The car had been fitted with a 3-litre Ford Essex V6 engine. He advertised it was a BT21B in November 1976 but appeared again with it at a sprint at Oulton Park in April 1977. It was then sold to Eike Wellhausen (Chesterfield, Derbyshire), then described as a former Jaguar E-Type driver but now better known as a Lister racer. Eike understood it to be a Brabham BT23C and Autosport described the car as a BT23C that had originally been built for an American who had intended installing a Chevy V8 but had never raced. Wellhausen replaced the standard Essex engine with a fully-tuned version and raced the car in libre events at Mallory Park, Donington Park and Silverstone from 1977 to 1979. By 1979 the V6 had been replaced with a Hart BDA. Eike recalls selling it to "a London jeans manufacturer who raced other single seaters". Subsequent history unknown.
