The Cooper Car Company was founded in 1946 raced in Formula One between 1953 and 1968, winning two drivers and constructor's championships by completing the double in both 1959 and 1960. They competed in 129 races, winning 16, claiming pole in 11, and setting the fastest lap in 14. The model T43 shocked the racing world, becoming the first rear-engined car to win a Formula One race, with Stirling Moss winning the season opener in Argentina and Maurice Trintignant taking the subsequent race at Monaco. Thus triggering the rear-engined revolution.
