Their friendship was interrupted by Brabham’s decision – prompted by a suggestion from Dean Delamont, the competition manager of Britain’s Royal Automobile Club (RAC), at a New Zealand Grand Prix – to move to England to test his skills in the European arena. He arrived in 1954, but, racing in noncompetitive cars, made little impact. He took part in 16 Grands Prix – finishing nine – before he won his first Grand Prix at Monaco in 1959 in the radical rear-engine Cooper T51, opening a season which he concluded by becoming world champion at the age of 33.

It was, he decided, too dangerous. He claimed to have woken up in hospital once too often. Four wheels seemed a safer bet. It led to him racing at Brands Hatch and Silverstone in 500cc single-seater events – the cars consisted of little more than chain-driven double-knocker Norton engines – which later became Formula Three. Ecclestone had a brand-new Cooper, bought through the new-found partnership, with the cockpit designed for his slight build, as were his driver’s overalls by Lewis’s of London.

The following season he came second in the World Championship title race to co-team driver, New Zealander Denny Hulme, who then left Brabham for McLaren. But ‘Black’ Jack felt time was running out. There was little more he wanted to prove or needed to achieve. He confided in Tauranac that he wanted to retire, which led to his partner acquiring his share in Motor Racing Developments Ltd in 1969. At the end of the 1970 season, Brabham, aged 44, made public his decision, bringing to a close an illustrious fifteenyear career spanning 126 Grands Prix, 14 wins and three World Championships.
