    Jack Brabham vs Juan Fangio (1978)

    This is a recording of an "exhibition" race between two of motorsport's all-time greats; Juan Manuel Fangio in a Mercedes W196 GP car and Jack Brabham in one of his own grand prix cars. It was a support race for the 1978 Australian GP at Sandown Park.

    Incredible to see (and hear!) two great cars from different eras, piloted by men from different eras, head-to-head out on a track. Enjoy...

    Great video, thanks for sharing, Jack.

    In my opinion Fangio is the greatest driver of all time. Others may win more titles than him, however he not only was a driver but a gentleman too. And imagine trying to control those machines in the 50's.

    Pure undiluted greatness.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!

    Fangio was a genius as a racing driver, he took a car with inferior technology to the one Brabham had there and was about to stay with him, that has to take a lot of skill.
