"'JBW Cars"' was a British racing car manufacturer in the late 1950s, who were a Formula One constructor from to 1961
Following two seasons competing in Formula Two races with the JBW Cooper T43 and T45, Brian Naylor decided to enter Formula One proper in 1959
The first appearance of the JBW-Maserati was at the pre-season BRDC International Trophy non-Championship race at Silverstone, on 2 May 1959
One further World Championship race and two non-Championship events in the remainder of the 1960 season all resulted in early retirements
The JBW Type 1 did not appear again until the following year's International Trophy race, on 14 May 1960
At the end of the 1961 season, and in increasingly poor health, Naylor retired from competition and wound up JBW Cars
The JBW-Maserati had further outings in the 1961 Intercontinental Formula events, but on each occasion Naylor failed to finish
