The new Wetherspoon will open next month

The pub will be named after British motor racing pioneer Thomas Raymond Mays.

Raymond, a former Oundle School pupil, was one of the people behind racing team BRM, which took 17 Grand Prix wins, and powered Graham Hill to the Formula One drivers championship in 1962. The team won the Constructors Championship in the same year.

The team’s workshops were based in Bourne at the back of his family home.

While not competing in Formula One as a driver himself, Raymond had a long racing career, winning a number of races in a range of categories.
