The Brab­ham name is set to re­turn to the In­di­anapo­lis 500 next May, 55 years af­ter Sir Jack Brab­ham’s first start. Twenty years af­ter Sir Jack rev­o­lu­tionised the race with his rear-en­gined Cooper, son Ge­off Brab­ham made his Indy de­but (far right), go­ing on to fin­ish fifth in his rookie year. With a fourth plac­ing two years later, Ge­off re­mains the most suc­cess­ful Brab­ham at the Brick­yard. Sir Jack’s last start was in an Offy-pow­ered Brab­ham (right) in 1970.
