    1.5L GP 1963 BRM P61 Driven by Graham Hill

    BRM’s first attempt at the monocoque design, the P61 was not a true monocoque as a rear subframe was bolted to the front, monocoque half of the car and omitted a rear bulkhead between the driver and engine . The car only competed in 2 Grands Prix. The P61’s debut came at the 1963 French Grand Prix at the hands of then champion Graham Hill. Hill who stalled at the start and was given a push-start, earning him a 60-second penalty/DSQ.  Hill would finish the race 3rd, 61 seconds ahead of Jack Brabham. Although the result seemed promising, it immediately became apparent the car suffered from severe chassis flex without a bulkhead. The P61 would not return until Monza, where Hill would retire with clutch problems. Most of the seasons other races were contested in the earlier P57 car. The car was the basis for the 1964 P261, a true monocoque.

    Model was built using an abandoned Supershells body with a variety of modified DArt Hobbies parts to resemble Hill’s 1963 low exhaust Reims car.

    Not yet presented to the 1970’s grid – an entry from 1973 that never finished higher than 9th place owned and driven by two time champion Graham Hill…

    Hill used the Shadow DN1 during the 1973 season for his newly established team, Embassy Racing. Driving the team’s only entry, which ran in a largely white scheme, Hill failed to score any points with the DN1. His best finish was ninth at the Belgian Grand Prix. Embassy Hill switched to Lolas for the following season. This is a DArt repop of the Scaley DN1 – part of the Eclektrix line introduced last year… Front wheels are BWA and rear wheels are custom machined… tires are the usual beefy SC0106 and on the fronts RM0202 trued down to nearly nothing…

    1970’s Grand Prix – #15 – Graham HILL, Customer Shadow DN1 (1973)
