Brabham’s F1 illustrious history was showcased on the loop ‘lawn’ during the April Scramble at Bicester Heritage. The lawn display featured Brabham’s BT7 and BT24 Grand Prix cars alongside other landmark examples from the marque.
Curated by Brabham Branding, the display included some of the finest examples from the marque’s history, including the 1963 Brabham BT7 – one of two works cars driven by Jack Brabham and Dan Gurney, and the car which earned the brands first of 35 GP victories in 1964 at the French Grand Prix at Rouen.
loop lawn visitors were greeted by a 1967 Brabham BT24 – a period chassis rebuilt in the same specification used by Denny Hulme to win the 1967 World Championship – as well as a BT18B ex-Italian GP car and a BT2 Formula Junior, which was the first ever Brabham to sport the iconic green and gold livery design.
Adrian Miller’s immaculate 1966 Vauxhall Viva HB Brabham was also in attendance, one of seven surviving examples and the subject of a 1/43 scale model replica by Corgi Vanguards.
The historic display included a glimpse into the future with live demonstrations of the BT19 inspired racing sim, an esports motorsport simulator developed in conjunction with Base performance.
Triple Formula One world champion Sir Jack Brabham remains the only man to win the championship driving one of his own cars. Today Brabham is spearheaded by son and multiple Le Mans winner David Brabham, who with his team is focused on continuing to develop the Brabham business through its brand partnership program, which started with Brabham Automotive back in 2018.
