The AADA is honoured to be taking up residency in the Sir Jack Brabham building in Brisbane.
Brabham, who passed away peacefully only a short while ago on May 19, has been mourned the world over. An automotive racing legend, he was the only Formula One driver in history to win a world title in a car of his own construction.
Aside from this remarkable achievement, Brabham won the Formula One world championship an incredible three times; he was named Australian of the Year in 1966 and was awarded the Order of the British Empire in 1967. Just over ten years later, he was knighted for his services to motorsport and in 2012 was named a National Treasure.
Despite such an incredible life and monumental achievements, he will be remembered by those closest to him as a dedicated father with a keen sense of humour.
In 2012, the state-of-the-art ‘Sir Jack Brabham Automotive Centre of Excellence’ was officially opened and named in honour of Brabham’s trail blazing career in motor racing.
The AADA, which is now officially based at this prestigious address, will use the new location to perform all daily activities.
