British Formula One Racing Team was a Formula One team run by Brian Henton in 1977. Henton, a racing driver who had been competing in Formula One and Two, set up his own team to compete regularly in Formula One.[1] The team purchased a March 761B from March Engineering together with a Cosworth DFV engine,[2] to compete in selected World Championship and Shellsport F1 series races.[2] The team's best result came in a non-championship race, where Henton put the March on pole, in front of the works Marches entered by Max Mosley. Henton and Bernard de Dryver entered four World Championship races, but failed to qualify for any.[3] The team later shut down through lack of funds.[1][2]
