P160 /01 Owner Nick Rini
at Coys of Kensington BRM 50th. Anniversary at Silverstone 31/7/1999

P160 P160 /01

The fastest Formula One race of the Twentieth Century fell to BRM P16/01 in the hands of Peter Gethin during 1971.

The race also produced the closest ever finish.

The closest ever "blanket finish" also occurred due to the first five cars crossing the line together.

The car was part of the Bourne parade 29th. August 1999
thanks to Hall & Hall restorers.
