Sir Jack Brabham says he has nothing to do with German tuning firm Brabham RacingEnlarge Photo
Brabham, now 82, together with his family is considering mounting legal action against the German firm despite his poor state of health.
"It is very disappointing, in 65 years or racing no one has ever done this to me before," he told the Australian Associated Press today. "They are using my name without my knowledge to promote and sell their products."
One of his biggest concerns is that if anything goes wrong with the products, people will automatically assume that Brabham himself has endorsed them. In his illustrious history, Sir Jack was F1 Champion in 1959, 1960, and 1966, and was the founding of the Brabham racing team and constructor.
