The extraordinary racing career of Sir Jack Brabham, Australia's first Formula 1 champion, is being brought to life in a major documentary film. The film titled ‘BRABHAM’ is a feature-length biopic about the legendary racing driver.
Four years in the making, the film tells the story of the three-time Formula 1 world champion who won a total of 14 grand prix and was the first world champion to drive a rear-engined car that he designed and built in Australia. Brabham was the only person in F1 history to win both the drivers and constructors championships.
It features archive footage of Brabham’s racing career and includes interviews with Sir Jackie Stewart and John Surtees, Grand Prix winner Sir Stirling Moss, former F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone, who owned the Brabham team from 1971- 1988 and Ron Tauranac, who co-founded the team with Brabham and designed many of the cars before selling it to Ecclestone. Fellow Australian racing star and Mark Webber also features.
Brabham will have a red carpet premiere at the Brisbane International Film Festival on Sunday, October 6 and a second screening at the festival on Wednesday, October 9.
