The British Syd Greene, the founder of Gilby Engineering company, was involved in motor racing since the mid-1950s. He ran his own private F1 team entering Maserati and Cooper cars for Ray Salvadori, Ivor Bueb, and his son Keith Greene. In 1961 Syd Greene designed his own car, Gilby, powered by Coventry Climax FPF engine. Keith drove this car to 15th place in the 1961 British Grand Prix. In 1962 the car was modified with Climax engine replaced by the BRM V8. Keith Greene in the BRM-engined car retired  in the British Grand Prix and did not qualify for the Italian Grand Prix. The highest result of the car was 3rd place by Greene in the non-championship 1962  Naples Grand Prix behind the works Ferrari’s of Willy Mairesse and Lorenzo Bandini. Gilby Engineering ceased competing in F1 after the 1962 season, the Gilby-BRM car was sold to Ian Raby who entered it in three events in 1963.
