When a small-town racing car driver takes on the high-octane world of Formula One, he soon learns that to stay at the top he will have to risk more than just his life on the track.
“Black-Jack” Brabham, revolutionised the sport of Formula One in the 1950s and 60s. His innovation and engineering of open wheeled racing cars is legendary, over a career spanning three Formula One World Titles – on the third occasion, winning in a car of his own making. Sir Jack Brabham remains the only person to hold the Driver’s and Constructor’s Championship title in the same year.
Sir Jack was also a great mentor and is credited for instrumentally supporting the careers of young drivers and engineers, including: Bruce McLaren, Ron Dennis, Phil Kerr and countless others.
Five decades on from Sir Jack’s unparalleled accomplishments, his youngest son, David Brabham (Le Mans 24 Hour Champion), stands on the precipice of his life’s greatest achievement, the launch of Brabham Automotive.
With everything on the line, David and his team are now poised to take the reigns and fly the Brabham flag once more.
