British Racing Motors (or BRM as it was more widely known) was created to put the UK at the forefront of the Grand Prix world as the FIA Formula One Championship became the top level of motor racing in 1950.

BRM had always been "the English Ferrari" in its aim to produce the chassis, engine and gearbox to its own design and within its own workshops. The team was soon under the control of Alfred Owen of the Rubery Owen industrial empire based at Darlaston in the Black Country of England. From their base at Bourne, Lincolnshire World Championship success came in 1962.
The team remained a championship chasing concern during the mid sixties and a regular race winner into the early seventies.
