Jack Brabham

Three-time Formula 1 World Champion Jack Brabham had a long and fruitful career in racing. The Australian native won numerous titles in his home country before taking on the world. After Brabham entered the prestigious Formula 1 series, he raced for the Cooper Car Co., who provided him with his first two World Championships in 1959 & 1960. After a short stint with Lotus, he designed and built his own car, Brabham, taking it to Indianapolis in 1961 and creating a sensation as the first rear-engined racer there. He won his third and final championship in 1966 with his own car, the Brabham BT19 & BT20. He retired in 1970 with 14 wins, 13 poles in more than 125 starts.
