Fans of BRM, and their founder, Raymond Mays are in for a treat in October when the Reverend Bryan Apps visits Bourne Motor Racing Club to help launch his new book, Raymond Mays’ Magnificent Obsession.  Bryan is a lifelong motor racing enthusiast, creating a BRM scrapbook at the age of thirteen, with Raymond Mays writing its foreword in 1952.  Mays continued corresponding with Bryan for many years, keeping him informed of the latest developments with the team.

The book, a biography of Raymond Mays includes complete histories or ERA and BRM and includes race summaries and personal letters addressed to the author from Alfred Owen, David Brown, Tony Rudd, Rivers Fletcher and Juan Fangio.  The book is illustrated with over 100 of the author’s colour paintings.

The meeting takes place on Thursday October 8th 2015, at The Bourne Corn Exchange Hall, commencing at 8.00 p.m, Non members are always welcome to attend, by paying £ 3.00 on the door.  Copies of the book will be on sale on the night for a special launch price of £ 25.00
