The sound of BRM racing cars could be heard in action at a Lincolnshire circuit on Friday 25 April, when the BRM Association held their first Track Day at Blyton Park near Gainsborough.

More than 175 members and their guests gathered to see ten F1 cars fitted with engines built and developed at Bourne, Lincolnshire, plus the company’s 1960 Leyland Tiger Transporter.

The original 1950 V16-engined BRM P15/1 came from the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu for the day and was firing on all 16 cylinders, running up to 9,000rpm.

There was also a selection of BRMs from their 1960s heyday through to the team’s later cars representing the 1970s.

The BRM Association was formed following the success of BRM Day held at Bourne on 7 October 2012. Further details can be found at their website: www.brmassociation.org.
