One of only two produced, an original large format circular alloy display sign, used by Rubery Owen to dress their BRM exhibition stand at the 1966 'Racing Car Show' held at Olympia, London. The sign is constructed of hand sign-written aluminium sheet, with rolled edges. The size is - 29" / 74cm. The sign is market fresh, having been in long term storage - the visible shaded marks can be cleaned and are the effect of the sign being stored in greased paper for preservation. The sign retains a good gloss and is very striking, however it has suffered some light scratches and marks over the years.
BRM only secured one victory in 1966, at the hands of Jackie Stewart at the Monaco GP.
