Can anyone tell me where the term "British Racing Green" comes from.  To =
my knowledge green was never a racing colour, was it?  The early racing =
T's were called "cream crackers," and I thought the later teams were =
white. My TD is what is called British racing green, but that's a =
misnomer, isn't it? Tom Britt  

My belief, based on some unknown source from the past, is that the BRG first 
appeared on any sponsored cars on the 4 factory "A" coupes prepared for the '55 
or '56 Sebring race. Can anyone correct me.
