I’ve written about both car and driver before, here; and here; but the photos were too good to ignore.

George showed some pace too, he qualified fifth at both Road Atlanta and Donnybrooke, was sixth on the grid at Edmonton and eighth at Laguna Seca but he had a shocking run of reliability with various chassis, engine and engine ancillary failures. The team’s Chev engines were prepared at Bourne.


His best finish was third at St Jovite, a performance matched by Pedro Rodriguez who raced another P154 at Riverside, and at Laguna where he was fifth.

The team’s 1970-71 P153-P160 grand prix cars were race winners, so BRM had bigger fish to fry. It’s a shame they didn’t build on the Can-Am learnings of 1970 with a full two-car works effort the following year all the same.
