Pride of place was taken by the 1959 World Champion, the Formula One Cooper Climax. The 1958 Title holder, the Vanwall, was the first British racing car ever to win it. The first BRM was the fabulous 16 cylinder. It was the most powerful car of its size in the world. The HWM started life 8 years ago. Stirling Moss and the late Peter Collins have driven it.
