SIR JACK INDUCTED INTO HALL OF FAME
BRSCC Vice-President, Sir Jack Brabham OBE, was inducted into Motor Sport Magazine’s Hall of Fame last night at a prestigious ceremony at The Roundhouse in Camden, held in association with TAG Heuer and hosted by BBC TV’s Jake Humphrey.
Collecting the award on behalf of Sir Jack was his son David Brabham, with the legendary Sir Stirling Moss OBE and fellow BRSCC Vice President, making the presentation to his past racing comrade.
Sir Jack Brabham is a true racing legend having won three Formula One World Championships in 1959, 1960 and 1966. He is the oldest surviving Grand Prix World Champion and in 1966 became the only man to ever win the F1 drivers’ title in one of his own cars, as he was the founder of the highly successful Brabham racing team.
In addition to Sir Jack Brabham, Motor Sport Magazine also inducted Sir Frank Williams CBE, Jody Scheckter and Dario Franchitti, who were all present and honoured with achievement awards on-stage in front of a star studded audience.
The great and good of Formula One gathered for the awards, with personalities including Christian Horner, Eddie Jordan, John Watson and Karun Chandhok in attendance on the night. Celebrity faces were also seen gracing the red carpet outside the iconic Roundhouse and mixing with the motor sport fraternity. James Martin, Chris Rea, Nick Mason and Johnnie Walker joined the exclusive event.
In 2010, Mario Andretti, Tony Brooks, Jacky Ickx and Ron Dennis were inducted at the inaugural Hall of Fame event, along with founding members Enzo Ferrari, Tazio Nuvolari, Juan Manuel Fangio, Jim Clark, Sir Jackie Stewart, Sir Stirling Moss, Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher.
