Journalist, author and historian Karl Ludvigsen is to deliver a lecture on the BRM 1.5 Litre Supercharged V16, hosted by Cranfield University, on 3 June, at 4.00pm.
Karl Ludvigsen has devoted a lifetime to the automotive industry as an editor, journalist, author of over four dozen books and as an executive with General Motors (Fiat and Ford). The award-winning author delves deeply into the troubled saga of the BRM V16 to bring to life the travails and triumphs of this exotic Formula 1 car, whose amazing engine was the first in history to rev above 10,000 rpm. Few cars of any kind have such an exciting reputation among enthusiasts than the first BRM, a 16-cylinder wonder machine that was a bright beacon of promise in Britain’s drab post-war years.
