The current owner of B19 CH-DBE-03 since 2003 is Ross Maxwell.

It wasn't a great start for the Richard Shardlow-owned, Paul Watson Racing Organisation-entered car when it failed to start the 1971 BOAC 1000kms following engine problems. Things didn't improve a lot in the next two races when at the Salzburgring Larousse qualified 13th but retired on the 1st lap of the first heat with fuel pressure problems and at the Martini Trophy Larousse qualified 7th but retired on the 31st lap suffering from water loss.
