DAVID TAYLOR commented on Stephen Page's blog post This rare 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO went for a staggering $48.4 million

About Me:
i AM RETIRED AFTER A BUISY LIFE.
While studying engineering in London I designed , built and raced three racing cars with the help of Mike Clive and others.
I then worked for Napiers as an engineer for some years on production of the Deltic engine.
I then formed my own company in the property business building and selling Houses then commercial property.
In 1970 I bought a F1 Cooper BRM and with Roger refurbished it. Sadly it was crashed and scraped but saving the V12 BRM engine and Hewland Gear box.
I bought a BRM P153 tub and suspension wheels etc . My engine fitted so we assembled the car chassis No 004.
We raced it in 1973 and 1974. I sold it then bought a Brabham F2 and raced it for a short period. I have kept an interest in Racing.

BRM P153

I have added some pictures of the BRM P153 I owned and raced in 1972 to 1974.

I had a BRM V12 engine and Hewland gearbox out of the COOPER F1 I owned and was crashed and scrapped.

I bought the BRM P153 tub wheels suspension etc from BRM and we fitted the engine gearbox etc.

I raced it and also had Kim Mather as a driver on occasions who was very good.

We won many races and set the outright lap record at Aintree.

The engine became unreliable after two years so I sold the car.

It is now raced in vintage F1 events.

All good fun
