How did my Rover BRM do?

It takes a 200-plus mile round trip like this eas­ily in its stride – com­fort­able and with lots of fab mu­sic on the cas­sette player. The idea of a BRM-badged car in the Lo­tus car park was in­ter­est­ing be­cause, while BRM and Lo­tus were ri­vals on the race cir­cuits, there was com­mon ground such as the BRM bench-tested en­gines in some spe­cial 1960s Lo­tus Elans. I never tire of trips to Nor­folk as it re­vives won­der­ful fam­ily hol­i­day mem­o­ries but I pre­fer the A149 to the A47. I still have a cher­ished photo that my mum took of dad in his Al­le­gro at a car­a­van site in Cais­ter-on-Sea.
