BRM V16 racing cars: books - history and technology

A book on BRM V16 passenger cars? Here are illustrated books on the history, models and technology of BRM racing passenger cars.

BRM - The Saga of British Racing Motors (2) - Spaceframe Cars 1959-1965

This second volume of a four-volume BRM history takes the story forward into the V8 era with the last of the cars built around a tubular chassis.

It covers the most successful period in the Formula 1 team's career, including the World Championship won with Graham Hill in 1962, the first two of his five wins at Monaco and the first two of his three victories in the US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen.

Having access to the BRM company files, the authors have been able to delve deeply into the emotion-charged background to the BRM team's final emergence as a Grand Prix front runner, to their involvement in the Tasman races in Australasia and to their first foray at Le Mans with the Rover-BRM gas turbine cars.

BRM V16 in Camera: A photographic portrait of Britain's glorious Formula 1 failure

BRM (British Racing Motors) was a motor racing venture created in 1950 to represent Britain in the new Formula 1 category. A symbol of Britain's post-war rebirth, the BRM car did nothing by halves: its 1.5-litre 16-cylinder supercharged engine and advanced specification made it a technical tour de force, but it earned a reputation as a fantastic folly, such that Stirling Moss described it as 'without doubt the worst car I ever drove'.
This book is a fascinating portrait of a racing car that still engenders enduring fascination.

BRM - A mechanic`s tale

This is the story as told by a man who was both a devoted fan and a loyal team member of British Racing Motors. He saw and was involved in the repeated failures and humiliating times of the 1950s, through the gradual progress of winning minor races to Jo Bonnier winning the first World Championship Grand Prix in Holland in 1959.

It culminates in the ultimate honor in 1962, when, in East London, South Africa, Graham Hill drove the BRM to victory to win both the drivers World Championship and the Constructors Championship for the BRM team, thereby making a considerable contribution to British motor racing history.
