If you loved the movie "Grand Prix"...

you'll love the latest addition to BritishRacecar!


That classic 1966 movie featured the fabulous Formula One cars of the early sixties, when displacement was limited to just 1.5L but racing budgets and technology were changing extremely quickly. The cars were fantastic... but it was also an era of particularly charismatic drivers. (Possibly none moreso than Innes Ireland.) If you loved the movie and want to better appreciate the actual history of the cars, drivers, teams, and constructors of the 1.5L Grand Prix era, here's your chance. I'm excited to announce the very first Grand Prix car / article to be added to BritishRacecar.com.

Can I get a drum roll please?

The interesting thing about the BRP cars is that there were so few of them built,I wonder if the Indy car survived?

I understand the Indy cars have survived, and at least one of them is being very carefully restored.
