Jack Brabham driving the Brabham-Repco BT 19 on his way to winning the French Grand Prix at Rheims on July 3rd. 1966. This was the first Grand Prix win by the Australian world champion since Portugal 1960. Brabham led home the second placed Ferrari of Englishman Mike Parkes by 9.5 seconds with Brabham team mate, New Zealander Denny Hulme in third place.
More importantly it was the first time a driver had won a Formula One Grand Prix in a car bearing his own name which was created, designed and built by him and his team. Over 50 years later, this is a feat which has never been repeated and is unlikely to ever happen again in the modern Formula One world. An incredible achievement by a man from the western suburbs of Sydney.
The Brabham-Repco BT 19 was the brainchild of Jack Brabham and his Australian colleague Ron Tauranac in collaboration with engineers Frank Hallam and Phil Irving from Repco in Melbourne. They made the most of the new Formula One 3 litre engine capacity rules early on and ingeniously designed a new engine from an alloy blocked Oldsmobile/Buick V8 project which had been discarded by General Motors.
The car proved very well suited to the majority of the tracks with its mid- range torque and punch allied to the brilliant chassis design. This enabled Jack Brabham to win four of the nine rounds of the 1966 World Championship and claim his third and final Formula One title to add to his previous two in 1959 and 1960.
The Brabham- Repco cars were victorious again in 1967, Denny Hulme beating the boss “Black Jack” Brabham by 5 points to make it a Brabham 1-2 in the championship.
In the midst of the many internationally famous Australian sporting heroes from Cricket, Tennis, Golf, Football, Swimming and all other sports the incredible brilliance of Jack Brabham stands unrivalled on the world stage. I am not sure many Australians are fully aware and appreciate the enormity of what he achieved in those days.
