50th ANNIVERSARY
1959 - 2009

Celebrating Sir Jack Brabham's first Formula 1 World Championship

Official statement from the Brabham family

Ferndown, Dorset, November 20, 2008: The Brabham family would like to absolutely and categorically state that the range of cars and accessories being publicised under the Brabham name at the Essen Motor Show 2008 and on global websites, has nothing to do with the Brabham family, or its long and respected motor racing heritage, in any way. It is clear to us, as it must be to the whole world, what these people are trying to do. In our opinion, it is a clear case of using our name, our history and our success, without the backing of the Brabham family.

The following weblinks will show you some of the reasons for our concerns:
