1974 BRM P201 Pescarolo

The P201 was the new BRM car designed  by Mike Pilbeam in 1974, which replaced Tony Southgate’s P160 raced since 1971. The car was powered by the same BRM 2,998 cc V12 engine as its predecessor, and featured a triangular monocoque, hip-level radiators, outboard front springs and inboard brakes. French motor oil company Motul backed the team in 1974, and the works team was renamed as Team Motul BRM. French influence resulted in the drivers lineup consisted of three French musketeers – Jean-Pierre Beltoise, Henri Pescarolo and Francois Migault. Beltoise was most successful among them and scored all 10 points for the team in 1974, including last BRM podium  in F1 in the South African Grand Prix, the debut race for P201. Pescsrolo’s best was 9th place in Argentina, and Migault finished 14th in France as his highest season placing. Team used dark green livery in Argentina and Brazil, first two rounds of the championship, before switching to combination of pale green and silver colors for the remainder of the year.
