Australian GP trophy to be named after Brabham

The Australian Grand Prix winner's trophy will be named in honor of three-time Formula One champion Jack Brabham, who died on May 19 at the age of 88. Brabham is the only Formula One driver to win a world title in a car he designed and built himself -- the rear-engine Brabham BT19 -- in 1966. He is already recognized on the trophy which carries a laminated studded timber trim replica of the steering wheel from the race car that he used to win his first world title in 1959. He won the F1 world title again in 1960. Australian Grand Prix officials made the announcement Tuesday. Brabham will be given a state funeral on Wednesday on the Gold Coast in Queensland state, where he lived.
