Great Britain


BRM (1963 & 1968)

Began his career with BRM in 1951 working primarily on engines, including the V16 1.5 litre supercharged engine and the 3 litre H16 engine. Stayed with BRM until 1969 (barring a very brief spell at Perkins Engines in nearby Peterborough), when he then joined British Leyland as chief engineer, responsible for passenger car engines. He then worked for Hesketh, Cosworth and Lotus, before setting up his own engine consultancy business in 1994. Geoff remained linked to the sport though, working in the BTCC with PSP as recently as 2002 as an engine installer and consultant. Described by his BRM colleagues as a bit of a boffin, Geoff was born in the home of BRM, Bourne, the son of a garage owner and Geoff picked up mechanical skills during his holiday time. Geoff now lives near Thetford in Norfolk.
