It is fantastic to see that BRM and their great sporting achievements have not been forgotten in the run up to the Olympics (sorry about the pun!)
The Olympic torch is being carried through the streets of Bourne tomorrow (Wed)
Hall & Hall are providing 2 BRMs to take part in the Parade.
See link


Bourne (8.53am-9.17am)

The torch will reach Bourne at 8.53am, where it will be carried along South Road. From there, it moves into South Street before being carried along Abbey Road and then Spalding Road. Carrying the torch through the town is; ex RAF officer Richie Goodsell, 53, from Bourne, who runs circuit classes in the area; charity fundraiser Daniel Dillon, 31, from Kent; young athlete Livii Warwood-Hart, 12, from Celle; 16-year-old Oliver Mas, a young volunteer from Cambridge; Victoria Ganley, 26, from Lincoln, who was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at 16 and has since ran for charities that support those with the condition; and Nicholas Robinson, 19, from Sevenoaks.

Street entertainment will be held throughout the town and after the torch has past, Bourne-based BRM racing team will do laps of the route before the roads reopen. Road closures will be in force from 8am to 9.40am.

An interactive route of the full map can be seen at the Olympic 2012

I watched the ITV Anglia news at 6pm yesterday to see the BRMs because all week they have been focussing on the torch's progress through the Eastern region but they only showed about 5 seconds of the runner in Bourne on what looked like a bland ring road and no footage of any of the roadside festivities.

A short clip, but I'd recommend you turn the volume down (or skip) until around 2 minutes in.
