Synopsis: Re-issue of an award-winning book which has been described as the most comprehensively researched and written history ever produced of a Formula 1 racing team. Doug Nye is the world's most respected author and researcher on the historic racing scene and Tony Rudd's distinguished motor industry career included many years as BRM designer and chief engineer. Little wonder, then, that their first volume of BRM v the Saga of British Racing Motors was hailed as the most detailed and authoritative history of a grand prix team ever published. It covers the tortured birth of BRM, and takes readers through the years of the troublesome V16 cars and the 4-cylinder 2.5-litre models of the 1950s. Having unique access to the BRM company files, the authors have delved deeply into the emotion-charged background to the BRM team's creation, its near-collapse and then its troubled survival prior to its final emergence as a front-running Grand Prix team. The team's creator Raymond Mays and its great benefactor Sir Alfred Owen, as well as drivers like Stirling Moss, Juan Manuel Fangio, Froilan Gonzales, Tony Brooks, Jo Bonnier and many other stars of the past all figure prominently in this remarkable motor racing saga.

About the Author:
