BRM Formula 1 Racing Car

 

A very smart and well modelled companion for the Vanwall - you cannot race just one car can you? With two great British racing cars you can have your very own carpet Grand Prix.

The BRM P25 was raced from 1956 to 1959; it was initially unsuccessful, not winning a race until a long awaited victory at the Dutch Grand Prix in 1959. Colin Chapman having helped to improve the car in 1956. Stirling Moss believed that the BRM engine was superior to the Coventry-Climax unit used in his Cooper, and a P25 was briefly run in 1959 for Moss by the British Racing Partnership.

Corgi released two new racing cars in 1958. The Lotus XI in July and this BRM P25 in December. The BRM was updated in 1961 when it was given suspension and a new coat of jade green paint, the pre-suspension version was always green, British Racing Green according to van Cleemput and also available in pale green according to Ramsay - although this may be confusing it with the later S model. The seat can be pale yellow or silver and it can have racing number 1, 3 or 7. The early cars did not have a driver, he was added for the S version in 1961.
