BREAKING: there are reports that Formula One champion Sir Jack Brabham has died

Very sad if true.

Cars were always first for this bloke, however whenever you saw an interview with him and the topic came around to bikes, he knew who was doing the business and who was on the way up.

Very smart man.

RIP

Sadly the news has been confirmed on several Australian News sites.

He certainly lived a very full life. RIP Jack, you were a Legend.

Lets see..........
design a chassis, scratch-build an engine to go in it, take it out and throw it around for a year, then come home as a F1 champ for everything.

Onya Jack, best of the best.

Adios, Jack

Sir Jack's now turning fast laps on the big racetrack in the sky.

Only saw him race once, Mexico GP 1970, and he didn't finish that one due to a mechanical.

Not many of my earliest racing heroes left now, I'm afraid.
