 Jack Brabham was a British Saloon Car Championship driver and race winner, having won five races for Alan Brown Racing between 1963 and 1966.

BackgroundEdit

Better known for his Formula One exploits, Brabham was already a double world champion before he entered his first race in the BSCC in 1963.[1] Before he won the 1959 and 1960 world championships, Brabham had competed in both Australia and the UK in numerous club events, as well as sports cars.[1] Having entered his first Grand Prix in 1955, Brabham had a wide range of experience before he was asked to race for Alan Brown Racing in 1963, and continued to race in Formula One during and beyond his BSCC career.[1]

BTCC HistoryEdit

Alan Brown Racing asked Brabham to drive for them at the final round of the 1963 season.[2] Driving a Ford Galaxie around Snetterton, Brabham demonstrated his talent, taking victory on his debut.[2] Alan Brown then asked Brabham to drive for them at the first two rounds of 1964, with Brabham once again showing his talent, taking victory at the first race (although a pre-race issue prevented him from starting the second round of the year).[3] Brabham also attended the final meeting of 1964, taking victory for the third time in only his fourth race.[3]

Brabham would not attend another BSCC race meeting until the sixth round of 1965, once again driving for Alan Brown Racing.[4] A third place finish resulted, with Brabham using one of the team's new Ford Mustangs, before he took victory at the following race at Brands Hatch.[4] Brabham looked to have also taken victory at Oulton Park in the final race of the year, but was disqualified in post-race scrutineering.[4] Brabham returned for the first four races of 1966, taking his final victory at the year's opening race.[5] He would take the Alan Brown Mustang to two further podiums before he left the BSCC for the final time, focusing on building his own Formula One team, Motor Racing Developments.[5][1]
