Sir Jack Brabham, a three-time World Champion, has died at his home in Australia at the age of 88.
Brabham won World Championships twice driving for Cooper in 1959 and again in 1960 and won a final time in a car of his own manufacture, the Brabham-Repco in 1966 when he also won the Constructors’ championship. The Brabham dynasty was more than his cars and World Championships. His three sons, Geoff, David and Gary have all competed at top levels of motor racing. and now the third Brabham generation are also starting their racing careers.
One of the all time greats has left us.
