The great Jack Brabham, three times F1 World Champion in 1958, 60 and 66, passed away aged 88.
A giant of the sport, Brabham was the only man to ever win a Formula One championship in a car he built himself.
Nicknamed "Black" Jack, as much for his rough character as for jet black hair, was also first to win a Formula One championship in a rear engined car in '59 with a Cooper.

His cars live on in Historic racing where they continue to fight for wins in the hands of great drivers like Duncan Dayton.
