Product description

This is the extraordinary story of a man who started a revolution in motorsport; a revolution that saw the British attitude towards Grand Prix motor racing change, thereby sowing the seeds of Britain's pre-eminence in the world of Formula One.

Raymond Mays was obsessed by the idea of a successful British GP car to challenge the domination of Alfa Romeo, Bugatti and Ferrari, and he was absolutely determined there was going to be one.

Born out of sheer patriotism, the legendary BRM, or British Racing Motors, was the brainchild of both Raymond Mays and Peter Berthon. Mays’s drive and determination to see British Racing Green and the Union Flag at the top of Grand Prix racing was remarkable.

This biography not only features Mays's pre-war career as a successful racing driver and hillclimber, but also chronicles the post-war story of the rise and fall of the BRM team.

Fascinating archive footage blends with interviews to produce a passionate account of a genuine British sporting hero. Featuring famous drivers such as Fangio, Ascari, Moss, Hill and Stewart, this film lets you relive the golden days of Grand Prix racing with a fine ‘blast’ of British nostalgia.
