Zaandvort 21/6/1969 was a Saturday,
Kyalami 07/03/1970 also a Saturday.

I didn#t prove it, but I think most of the Dutch and South African GP were held on Saturdays (btw also the 1st ever Championship-GP 13/05/1950 in England)

Silverstone GP's also used to be on Saturdays. I remember the 1981 and 1983 British GP's were on Saturdays.

The South African GP's were held on Saturdays as apparently playing sports on Sunday only began in the late eighties.

All International racing in UK was on saturdays or bank holidays until 1966.
