Francis Stephenson, 74, was part of the team that built and toured with Graham Hills championship-winning BRM in 1962, the first of Hills two Formula One world titles. On Sunday, BRM held a day to commemorate the 50 years since the championship and had gathered BRM cars to take part in a drive around the streets of Bourne, Lincolnshire. Mr Stephenson, of Hazel Way, St Ives, was given a BRM book written by Sir Alfred Owen and signed by Hill, at the event. Hills 1962 car was driven by his son, Damon, himself an F1 world champion. Mr Stephenson worked on the cars engine and helped with the transportation of the car around the world. He even missed his daughter Sandys Christening because he was working. Sandy Graham, also from St Ives, arranged for her father to visit the pit lane at Sundays event where he met Damon Hill. She said: I always wanted to have Damons signature in my dads book because I wanted it to go full circuit. It was surreal meeting him and asking Please can you sign this because your dad gave the book to my dad. My dad suffers from MS but as they posed for a photograph, he got out of his wheelchair and was sitting on the tyre it was as if his disability had disappeared. Then the person who owns the car was saying he had a problem and didnt know how to sort it ... and there was my dad telling him how to do it and get more performance. He just looked like a young mechanic again, telling people about the engine. It was an unbelievable experience. My dad is the only one who worked on that car who is still alive and I dont think this type of event will ever happen again.
