1957 Australian Grand Prix

Jack Brabham's career was about to take off when he brought this Formula 2 Cooper Climax to Caversham for the 1957 Australian Grand Prix. The front-engine monsters (Maserati 250F, Ferrari 750) were still too good. By the end of 1959 Brabham was World Champion for the first time. (WASCC collection)
