Replica vintage helmet signed by 3 time F1 World Champion Jack Brabham.

Brabham was a Royal Australian Air Force flight mechanic and ran a small engineering workshop before he started racing midget cars in 1948. His successes with midget racing events led to his going to Britain to further his racing career, where he became part of the Cooper Car Company’s racing team, building as well as racing the cars. Brabham contributed to the design of the mid-engine cars that Cooper introduced to Formula One and the Indianapolis 500, and where he would win  the Formula One World Championship in 1959 and 1960. In 1962 he established his own Brabham marque with fellow Australian Ron Tauranac, which in the 1960s became the largest manufacturer of customer racing cars in the world. In the 1966 Formula One season Brabham became the first – and still, the only – man to win the Formula One World Championship driving one of his own cars. He was the last surviving World Champion from the 1950s.

The helmet is signed by Brabham and comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
