Any chance of BRM Story Vol 4 from Doug Nye

Hello ALL BRM Fans out there!It has been some long time now that the Doug Nye Superb Vols1,2,3 have been published of the BRM Story.As someone who tried and nearly succeeded in restoring P48#6 the identified Guinea Pig Chassis into its original P25 front engine state in the mid 70s;In Vol 2 Page330,Nye called it a replica,and Robs lamplough bought it and finished it!.Also had the opportunity to drive one of Team Charles Clark's P261s around Oulton Park in late 1970,could have been early 71.I was thinking of buying one for Libre Races,so happily paid 100 for 10 laps of that magnificent circuit.There was another driver there with a Gold Helmet(Mine was black),who could have been Ian Mitchell,but he was testing to drive one for them.Never got the chance for photos as it was all in a bit of a hurry;in fact my car(#unknown to me as no deal was done as spares were limited!) did not have its engine cover on,and I seem to emember Ian's did not either,but long ago now.Going back to the Doug Nye's books,many out there build 43rd scale Resin/White metal model kits.Spark from China has unfortunately collared the market with fully built collectors models in good detail,but sometimes horrendous colour mistakes,as original colour photos change shades over time.None the less there is very limited photos and information on the early V12 as run by Owen Racing Org and Tim Parnell,and similarly little on the developement of the lovely P153 into the P160s to the dearth of the P180,yet Betloise ran it and won at Brands in a non Champ event.Then the rebirth of the P160 into the 160B,D ,E then the P201 -4 series.My Production mate in Italy has tried to produce kits that Tenariv never managed,and has moulded in resin.white metal the 201,204,207,in the BRM Stanley/Rotary Watches schemes,that are quite basic,but can be built very nicely with research and time.I dont know how many out there want such a newNye Vol4,but it would be nice before all this is so easily forgotten??I have built the entire range even the Bernard White P261 with the V12 for Hobbs,and it keeps my memory banks open and great fun,but more information would be nice??

The key below delete, just over there on the right hand side of your keyboard, just above the shift key.

That is the one you want.

Wonder if it even will be a book about the last-ever BRM racing car in motorsport, the P351 (P401) prepared for 1997 Le Mans 24H. Keith Wiggins, with his Pacific Racing team, has a lot to detail about that project, since he was the responsible of it at the time.
