They built racing cars….
Pure and simple. For F1. And, in order to finance those F1 projects, every other type of racing car too – from Formula Junior to big-banger sports cars. Cooper and Brabham. Two titans of the sport. Cooper gave us rear engines, Jack Brabham the sight of a brilliant driver winning races and championships in a car bearing his own name and his own indelible stamp.
Join Rob Wilson and I as we drive into Surrey, south of London, to capture some of the spirit of Cooper and Brabham.
