This received from Brian Redman:
Reference your question re least number of starters in an international race:
Keimola, Nordic Series, 1969
Promised 1,000 pounds starting money to race at Keimola by promotor, Curt Lincoln, the teams undertook the long journey to
be told: "sorry chaps - no money".
Pretty well en masse, everyone withdrew their entry and the race was held with THREE cars.
Curt's son-in-law, Jochen Rindt 1st.
Curt's driver, Leo Kinnunen 2nd
Both driving Porsche 908s
Third and last was Hans Laine in a Porsche 906. (Hans would die in a 908 in practice at the Nurburgring in 1970, I think.)
Kind regards, Brian
(Well thank you Brian - and the washing machine goes to...}
