Motorsport Memorabilia 1966 Grand Prix commemorative cover
The introduction of 3-litre V-8 engines disturbed the dominance of Lotus, giving Jack Brabham the opportunity to take his third Drivers Championship in the BT19 model bearing his own name. A consistent spell with 3 pole positions and 4 consecutive wins gave Brabham a clear lead in both championships. Denny Hulme in the Brabham BT20 came fourth in the championship with 18 points but Jack Brabham had scored so highly that Hulmes points were not needed to count towards the Constructors trophy. John Surtees won 2 races in the Ferrari 312 before changing to the Cooper and gaining a further victory; however, he could only manage second place in a turbulent season. The artwork depicts Jack Brabham in his own Brabham Repco BT19, closely chased by John Surtees in a Cooper-Climax T81 at the German Grand Prix in the Nurburgring.
