Developed by Argentinian Sergio Rinland, the BT60Y made its début at the San Marino Grand Prix, replacing the BT59Y. It was powered by the Yamaha OX99 V12 engine. The significance of the letter "Y" stands for the car's engine supplier, Yamaha. It was driven by Martin Brundle and Mark Blundell.
In 1992, the team used a modified B-spec version of the car. Dubbed the BT60B, it was powered by the Judd GV V10 engine and driven by Eric van de Poele, who arrived from the Modena team, and Giovanna Amati, the first woman to compete in Formula One.
After three races of the season, Amati was dropped by the team and replaced by Damon Hill.
The season was a complete disaster for the team, starting only 3 races and failing to qualify most of them, until the team folded after the Hungarian Grand Prix, which Damon Hill finished eleventh.
