Brab­ham ca­reer’s Good­wood party

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The life and ca­reer of Sir Jack Brab­ham will be cel­e­brated at the Good­wood Re­vival Meet­ing in Septem­ber.

Brab­ham, who raced at the Re­vival as re­cently as 2000, died in April 2014 aged 88. Track demon­stra­tions will pay trib­ute to Brab­ham, both as a racer and a con­struc­tor, on the 50th an­niver­sary of his fi­nal World Cham­pi­onship win.

Also to be cel­e­brated will be the 50th an­niver­sary of For­mula 1’s move to three-litre en­gine reg­u­la­tions for 1966, when Brab­ham won his third World Cham­pi­onship in his Brab­ham-repco BT19. It re­mains the only ti­tle for a driver com­pet­ing in a car bear­ing his own name.
