Revue de presse

Hot4s.com.au (Australia), May 2007

Yes, you did read right. The cost on this puppy is $74.95, but it's quite a special book for those in the know. You see, it details the rise and subsequent fall of the great British Racing Motors, which was something of an emotional roller-coaster for Pommie pride throughout the '50s and '60s. The sheer research that must have gone into this thing, not to mention trying to pull all these photos from archives and what have you, must have been absolutely astronomical, and if you're a fan of British motor-racing history, you'll no doubt turn every page with either a tear in your eye or a hand on your heart.

If you can stomach the price, it's well worth the effort.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Continues to reveal the tortured history of Britain's most emotionally charged and passionately operated Formula 1 racing team.Doug Nye is the world's most respected author and researcher on the historic racing scene and Tony Rudd's distinguished motor industry career included many years as BRM designer and chief engineer. Little wonder, then, that their first volume of BRM - the Saga of British Racing Motors was hailed as the most detailed and authoritative history of a grand prix team ever published. It covered the birth of BRM, and took readers through the years of the troublesome V16 cars and the 4-cylinder 2.5-litre models of the 1950s.Now, Volume 2 of their four-volume BRM history takes the story forward into the V8 era with the last of the cars built around a tubular chassis. It covers the most successful period in the Formula 1 team's career, including the World Championship won with Graham Hill in 1962, the first two of his five wins at Monaco and the first two of his three victories in the US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen.Having unique access to the BRM company files, the authors have been able to delve deeply into the emotion-charged background to the BRM team's final emergence as a Grand Prix front runner, to their involvement in the Tasman races in Australasia and to their first foray at Le Mans with the Rover-BRM gas turbine cars.As with Volume 1, the print run of this and succeeding volumes is being restricted to 2500 numbered copies. Volume 3, to be published late-2003, will concentrate on the V8-powered monocoque cars from 1964 to 1968, leaving the final volume, to be published in 2004, to conclude the saga of BRM with the H16 and V12 cars from 1968 to 1978.* Please note: As Volume 1 is out of print, the publishers will be commissioning a short reprint of unnumbered copies later in 2003 to enable new subscribers to complete their four-volume set.

Strictly for afficianados 24 décembre 2013
Par Ricardo Mio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you followed 1960's era Grand Prix racing, you were very much aware of BRM's failures and triumphs as chronicled in Doug Nye's Big Books on BRM. This volume (Vol. 2) covers the last of the lean years and the breakthrough year, with driver Graham Hill and engineer Tony Rudd working as one to achieve the 1962 world championship. Nye undertook a great deal of research to produce this book, which is admirable, but concentrates too much on the details and as a result misses the big picture. For example, BRM's decade of failure was largely due to technical hubris as explified by its failure to ignore driver feedback, which Graham Hill discusses in his own book (briefly), but is not discussed here. To me, this was a subject that deserves a chapter, at least. Also, I would have liked many more graphics on chassis design and supension geometry and how differed from Lotus, Cooper and Ferrari. Another question never answered is why Tony Brooks was relegated to a secondary role to Graham Hill when in fact he was the quicker driver. Also, Gurney's role with the team is only touched upon, and yet he was the only driver who delivered victory in the troublesome BRM P48. His time with BRM would later bear fruit with the development of the Gurney-Westlake V12, which is not discussed either. Pointed summaries of alll the principles and their contributions, supported by quotes, would have helped the narrative. Criticism aside, I enjoyed reading this book and consider it indispensable to understanding the 1960s F1 scene. Strictly for afficianados.
Everything you need to know about British Racing Motors 20 juin 2013

This review really applies to the entire series Volumes I, II, and III

Everything you wanted to know (and didn't know) about BRM from its origins at the end of WWII, the struggles with its spectacular but unreliable V16s to the evolution of the rear engine cars, the first (and only) world championship in 1962 with the P578, and the campaigns of the beautiful P261s from 1963-9. Volumes II and III also benefit from the inclusion of all of Tony Rudd's race reports to Sir Alfred Owen. Doug Nye is the master writer of this era. The technical details are brilliant, the race reporting is fascinating and the pictures are stunning. The drama of Messrs: Raymond Mays and Peter Berthon in Volume I is as good as any novel, and it's all true. I'm sure all fans of BRM are looking forward to Volume IV.
