Hi Chaps

I'm trying to research a photo I have of Bobby Unser in the BRM from 1968. The photo shows him in I think the P126.

The mystery is that the car has the race number 11 , Unsers numbers in the two races he did for BRM were # 25 for the Italian GP DNS and # 9 for the US GP at Watkins Glen.

The only possible clue I have is that the previous GP Italy was the German GP at the Nurburgring where Attwood raced a works BRM # 11. Is it possible that Unser tested the BRM before the Italian GP thus the car having the # 11 race number ?

By the way the photo looks to be have taken during wet track conditions.

I look forward to any answers to the Unser question.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Rob

Unser tested the BRM at both Snetterton and Silverstone, the latter in rainy conditions:
