Brabham BT11 designed by Ron Tauranac and built in 1964 by Motor Racing Developments was a typical 1.5-Litre F1 car constructed using steel tubular spaceframe and powered by usual Coventry Climax FWMV 1.5 V8. In 1964 it was used by works team and was available for numerous privateers, including Rob Walker and Jo Siffert. Private teams continued to use it until 1968. One of such private team in the mid-1960s was DW Racing Enterprises run by British Bob Anderson, former motorcycle Grand Prix rider. What DW is stand for is not exactly known. Probably it was Dudley Ward, a motorcycle entrant who presumably had some connection with Bob in his 2-wheeled days. Anderson ran his team in F1 in 1963-1967, and 1964 season was the pinnacle of his Grand Prix career. In his private BT11 Bob managed to get 3rd place in the Austrian Grand Prix, 7th round of the Championship, and took 11th position in the final drivers’ standings with 5 scored points.
