Repco Brabham BT-19 – With Larko
Mark Larkham tells us about the history and significance of the Repco Brabham BT-19 that Jack Brabham took victory in the 1966 Formula 1 Championship. He shares his passion for the race car, the amazing history that is tied up in Australia, Repco and 2 significant men, Ron Tauranac and Sir Jack Brabham who worked with Repco to develop an engine to go racing with in 65 and 66. In 1966 Jack took the car to victory and won the Formula 1 World Championship in this exact car.
Larko interviews Sam Brabham, son of Jack, asking how it feels to drive such an iconic car at the iconic Bathurst track. Sam took the car around the mount panorama circuit for the first round of the Repco Supercars Championship and had an ear to ear grin the whole time he was driving. Repco have kept and maintained the Repco Brabham BT-19 in working shape for many years and were very proud to have the car on display in its usual race attire at the event.
