  • BRM, the Inside Story The biggest story of the week is that we have a new section on the site! The inspiration for our new section came from a British Racing Motors team mechanic, Dennis ‘Sheriff’ Perkins who worked for the team for well over a decade from the mid 1950s onwards, and who took unique photos throughout his time with the team. Those photos give us a new perspective, and form the basis for us to take a detailed look at the history of BRM, from the incredible V16 engined Type 15, to winning the World Championship and beyond. From the cock ups to the conquests, and back again, it’s all there.
