Initially BRM was the only British competitor challenging Ferrari and Maserati and it struggled for success in the early days. However in 1962 BRM reached its racing pinnacle winning the Constructors’ Championship and with lead driver Graham Hill becoming World Champion. This book was published in the aftermath of BRM’s success and significantly this copy is signed both by the author and the team’s World Champion driver.
