Jack Brabham

This is a photograph I took in the paddock during practice the day before the British Grand Prix at Aintree in 1962.
It's Jack Brabham in the Brabham Racing Organisation Lotus 24 preparing to go out on a practice run. He drove the Lotus in the early part of that season whilst he was waiting for his new Brabham BT3 to be ready - his team had hoped that he would be able to race the car in the British Grand Prix but in the event it wasn't ready until the following race, the German Grand Prix. At Aintree Jack qualified the Lotus in ninth place on the grid and ended the race in fifth place, a lap behind the winner Jim Clark in a Lotus 25.
Here's Jack Brabham approaching Waterway Corner during a practice run.
