A blog largely about photos I've taken over some years of classic and historic racing and sports cars.

This is one of the cars in the Donington Collection that I photographed on my last visit in September 2014.
It's the 1964 BRM P67 and was BRM's attempt to build a competitive four-wheel drive F1 car, as did several other teams in the 1960s. It only made one racing appearance, in practice for the 1964 British Grand Prix, but after qualifying in last position the car was withdrawn from the race. The project was then shelved as BRM concentrated their efforts on developing the H16 engine, although the P67 had some success in hillclimbs in the hands of David Good and Peter Lawson, the latter winning the British hillclimb championship in 1968 with the car.
