1958 BRM Formula 1 Car

BRM 1958 Formula 1 Grand Prix Car. British Racing Motors (BRM) was a British Formula One motor racing team founded in 1945 and based in Spalding Road, Bourne, Lincolnshire. It participated in F1 from 1950 to 1977, competing in 197 grands prix and winning seventeen. BRM won the constructors' title in 1962, the same year their driver Graham Hill became world champion. In 1963, 1964, 1965 and 1971, BRM came second in the constructors' competition. The BP25 2.5 litre 4-cylinder engine car coming to the 2017 SPARK! festival competed in the 1958 and 1958 season, being driven by Ron Flockhart. It won one race and was on the podium five times. Stirling Moss took second place in the 1959 British Grand Prix in an identical sister car.

The first BRMs were a pale duck-egg green (at the time, any shade of green represented Britain's racing colours), but this was later replaced for aesthetic reasons by a very dark metallic shade of grey-green, as can be seen on the BP25 car at this year’s SPARK! Festival.

BRM were also involved with Donald Campbell's gas-turbine Bluebird project.
