Lexington Chevron B-25. Chassis may be either 25-73-01 or 25-73-03 Dave Charlton's McLaren M23 Chassis M23/2 Ex Peter Revson - Revson won the British GP in this car in 1973. Jody Scheckter also raced this car a couple of times

Lotus 72
Dave Charlton's McLaren M23 Chassis M23/2 Ex Peter Revson - Revson won the British GP in this car in 1973. Jody Scheckter also raced this car a couple of times Gunston Lotus 72. There were two Lotus 72 chassis at the race for Eddie Keizan and Guy Tunmer - I think. One may have been 72/R3 and the other 72/R6 ex Ronnie Peterson and winner of the 1973 French GP, 1973 Austrian GP, 1973 Italian GP and 1973 US GP - all Peterson victories! However there was a third Lotus 72 that went to SA - it was 72/R7 ex Emerson Fittipaldi in which he won 5 GPs in 1972 and 1973. This car was driven by Paddy Driver and Guy Tunmer. So I am unsure which 2 chassis were at Donnybrook for the race
