How many times has a multi-car team showed up for a race with 2 or more different cars and actually started the race with multiple types? I'm sure it was fairly common through the 70s, but I'm still curious of any famous examples.
Sorry if anyone else has mentioned this...
BRM turned up for many 1972 GP's with 4 or 5 cars, mostly all competing in the races too. P180's, P160b's and c's and P153's.
Monaco was a particular example in line with your post Dan, as they brought 5 cars and raced 3 different versions. Beltoise recorded BRM's final race win in one of the two 160b's, Marko in a 153b was classified 8th and the P180 for Ganley retired from a crash just after half distance. Gethin disqualified for an issue being pushed in the pits and the other 160b was retired by Wisell after 16 laps.
With a bottomless pit of Philip Morris funding, BRM was supposedly meant to run 6 cars at the races in 1972, 3 P180's in Marlboro colours and the other 3 P160's in the national Marlboro liveries.
Edit: Apologies, I couldn't see Rob G's answer for looking. (only one post down from your question Dan) Bit more info can't hurt though can it?
