A salute to Sir Jack, Brabham trail blazer extraordinaire

Born on this day in 1926 in Sydney, Australia, Jack Brabham blazed the family trail and many others through his outstanding motor racing achievements.

A 14-time Grand Prix winner and three-time F1 world champion, Sir Jack remains to this day the only driver to win the Formula One world championship driving one of his own cars.
