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.
