 misnomer, isn't it? Tom Britt

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

 I have a model formula 1 BRM in BRG, dating from the sixties.  BRG was,
indeed, a racing color.
