National Museum acquires
historic Brabham car
Racing legend’s 1967 V8
Repco-Brabham prototype on
public display for the first time
The National Museum of Australia (NMA) has acquired
an historic car constructed and driven by Australian
racing legend and three-time Formula One (F1) world
champion, (1959, 1960 and 1966) Sir Jack Brabham, AO,
OBE (1926-2014).
The son of a greengrocer from Hurstville in Sydney’s
south where he drove delivery trucks around the yard,
Sir Jack was an ordinary Australian who helped develop
Formula One as we know it today.
The 1967 Repco-Brabham Tasman BT23A-1 prototype
now on display in the NMA’s Main Hall, was first raced
by Sir Jack, after his 1966 F1 World Championship win. Sir
Jack raced the car in the separate 1967 Tasman series where
he set the fastest lap at Wigram (a Christchurch suburb).
The1967 Tasman Series was a motor racing competition
contested over six races in New Zealand and Australia,
between 7 January and 6 March 1967.
The design of the BT23A-1 - on display at the NMA - led
directly to the development of the BT24 which was driven
by Denny Hulme of the Brabham team, and won the 1967
F1 Championship.
Since then, the car has been owned, raced and crashed by
others. It retains many original components including the
