Sir Jack Brabham AO OBE and Alan Jones MBE, who were immortalised at the 2013 Formula One Rolex Australian Grand Prix with their likeness sculptured in bronze, now have a new home.
The bronze busts have been cemented in place at the end of pit lane at the Albert Park circuit, not far from where they were officially unveiled on Sunday March 17.
To celebrate the two greats of Australian motor sport, the Australian Grand Prix Corporation in partnership with the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS), commissioned bronze busts of both Alan Jones MBE and Sir Jack Brabham AO OBE.
The sculptures were unveiled by the Honourable Dr Denis Napthine, Premier of Victoria with FIA President, Jean Todt on hand for the ceremony along with Australian Grand Prix Corporation Chairman, Ron Walker AC CBE and CAMS President, Andrew Papadopoulos.
The recognition for Jones and Brabham came as the Australian Grand Prix celebrated 60 years since its first race at Albert Park in 1953 which was also the year CAMS was formed.
Both men have a strong link to the early days - Jones’ father Stan competed at Albert Park in 1953, while Sir Jack Brabham AO OBE started on the grid in 1956 and 1959.
Now fans will be able to see them trackside for evermore... and admire their achievements.
Sir Jack Brabham AO OBE was a three time winner of the Formula One World Drivers' Championship and Alan Jones MBE won the title in 1980.
