Hi Irridux,

sorry you are wrong!Have a look at davef's posted video about the 67 French Grand Prix, at 1:31min you can see that Stewart drove Firestone tires! :report:

You are right Silence! :thumbup:
Probably, He has borrowed the Tyres from Reg Parnell brother Team for this race... :lol:
Or, maybe, He shares his car with Chris Irwin's P261.
Check the nose of the P261...  :report:
Anyway, the official BRM Team used the Firestone Tyres only on 67 P261.

Many thanks to all for the kind help. I quote here the "Motor Sport" report of the time: " Not unnaturally most people went faster on the second day of practice and it was amusing to see that BRM had snatched the V8 Tasman car away from Tim Parnell and Irwin, to give it to Stewart; and given them an H16-cylinder car in return. It was even more amusing when Stewart failed to equal the time set up by Irwin the day before, and Irwin improved on Stewart's time with the 16-cylinder car. (What a lot of old proverbs spring to mind)   "

I add also a nice photo which shows behind Ligier the orange nose of the P261 of Stewart with the BRM badge. The mentioned movie was also very  instructive. The car is in post #1 with Firestone tyres.

Irridux, Silence, thks to you I get unemployed :wave:


after a quick check, we can confirm the P 261 used Firestone at Monaco and Bugatti for Stewart; But the Reg Parnell car seems to have switched from Dunlop ( monaco, Courage) to Firestone ( Irwin)

Beginning the season on Dunlop,they were undecided on what to use; even at Kyalami, they tried Good Year for practice.
The work team used alternatively Dunlop then Good Year ( U.K GP) Dunlop ( German)  and from the Canadian GP until Mexico Good Year only

I don't know why, but the GPLEA BRM P83 have a second windscreen, only visible in cockpit view, which wasn't there in reality, at least not at the french GP.

fajanko made a file to delete the second windscreen.

For those who plan to go to Le Mans this year, there is a commemorative expo to mark the 50 year of the event . Now, on display at the track museum, a retrospective of the 1967 French GP

A  Brabham BT 24 ( winner of the race ), BRM P 115, Cooper Maserati T 81 and Lotus 49 , and the Matra MS6 F3 winner of the F3 race ,will be there.
