In Formula One racing the feat of engineering and competing in a racecar of one’s own making is likely to never be repeated. Winning the driver’s championship in such a way would today be considered practically unfathomable. The only driver to achieve such a feat is Australia’s own Sir Jack Brabham winning the Formula One World Championship and Formula One Constructors Championship in 1966. Brabham’s career evolved from a well-developed mechanical aptitude to driving when a friend convinced him to race one of the vehicles they had created in 1948. Realising his skills in motor racing extended to being behind the wheel Brabham went on to win the 1948 Australian Speedcar Championship. Winning the Formula One World Championship in 1959 1960 and 1966 Sir Jack Brabham’s legacy of achievement continues to inspire Australians of all ages.
The Royal Australian Mint has struck a coloured 2017 cupro-nickel 50 cent uncirculated to celebrate the late motor racing icon.
