Career setbacks that would have seen a less determined character throw in the towel only seemed to encourage this tough, no-nonsense driver to get stuck in once more and prove his critics wrong. With three seasons of Formula Vee and Super Vee racing behind him, Brian took the plunge into F3 - initially with his own GRD before a move into the works March F3 team for 1974 really put him on the map. Easily winning the Lombard and Forward Trust championships, he graduated to Formula 2 and a brief and salutary stint with Lotus. This was followed by an abortive 1976 season after a planned drive with Tom Wheatcroft foundered after just one race, and Henton had to start all over again.

His patriotic private British Formula One March got him back on the F1 grid, but he soon ran out of funds, so it was back to Formula 2 for 1978, Brian enjoying some success in his own car, and 1979, when he finished a close second to Marc Surer in the championship, winning at Mugello and Misano. With BP and Toleman behind him, Henton made no mistake the following year, taking the title and re-establishing himself as a serious proposition once more.

Brian had certainly earned his move back into Grands Prix with Toleman, but the season was another major disappointment, the underdeveloped car beset by turbo problems. Henton could have been sunk without trace, but he managed to find a seat for 1982, first with Arrows, deputising for the injured Surer, and then at Tyrrell in place of Slim Borgudd. He did a solid job, nearly making the points, and was credited with fastest lap at Brands Hatch, but it was not enough for Tyrrell to retain him. A one-off drive into fourth place for Theodore in the 1983 Race of Champions rounded off a career which eventually failed to meet Henton's expectations, but it wasn't for want of trying.
