BRM’s seventieth birthday honours on-track

Goodwood Revival | Press Article 17/04/24

The largest ever assemblage of BRMs took to the Circuit on Friday afternoon in celebration of the Bourne marque reaching its seventieth year in 2021. British Racing Motors remains a legendary name in motor racing lore, having accrued its first World Championship Grand Prix at Zandvoort in 1959. Graham Hill and BRM claimed the Drivers’ and Constructors’ titles three years later, other famous alumni including Dan Gurney, Jackie Stewart, and Niki Lauda.

Highlights of the BRM Celebration parade in association with Motul included a brace of V16-engined, 1.5-litre P15s, the P25 aboard which Jo Bonnier claimed that maiden victory in the Netherlands, the ex-Richie Ginther P578, and the wildly ambitious H16-engined P83. Other cars of note included the P160 aboard which Peter Gethin famously scored the closest-ever F1 win at Monza in 1971. It wasn’t all single-seaters, though, with the likes of the Rover-BRM Turbine Le Mans car and the monstrous Castrol-liveried P154 Can-Am weapon also wowing the crowds.

The first of three P15s continuation cars also took to the Circuit, having been unveiled by the Duke of Richmond earlier today. Constructed by famed restorers Hall & Hall, a firm steeped in BRM lore, and employing chassis numbers laid down in period but not used, it was fashioned using original blueprints and similarly employs more than 4000 individual components. This remarkable car, along with its exalted antecedents, will be out on track in further parades on Saturday and Sunday.

About the Goodwood Revival
The Goodwood Revival is the world’s greatest historic motor race meeting, and the only sporting event of its kind to be staged entirely in a period theme. More than just an unrivalled weekend of historic racing, it is an immersive celebration of a less disposable world, where “make do and mend” was a way of life rather than a casual slogan.

The Revival is, at its heart, a celebration of craftsmanship and sustainability, from an age when possessions were made to last and be cherished. It promotes a thoroughly modern ethos – to “reduce, reuse, repair, restore and recycle” – in the most authentic way possible. All the cars are original, having been lovingly maintained since new, many of the outfits have been handed down through generations, and even the retailers specialise in pre-owned artefacts – everything from clothes and accessories to automobilia and books.

It is, proudly, the world’s biggest and most glamorous second-hand event.
