Sir John Arthur "Jack" Brabham AO, OBE (born 2 April, 1926 in Hurstville, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia – died 19 May, 2014 in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia) was an Australian former racing driver and Formula One driver, who won three world championships, in 1959, 1960 and 1966. Brabham was the second triple champion after Juan Manuel Fangio, who won five titles.

Brabham also started his own constructor, Motor Racing Developments, Ltd. with Ron Tauranac, which was much better known as Brabham. The team competed from 1962 to 1992. Jack's third championship (1966) was won with his own car, and he his the only driver to ever win the championship in a car of his own make or his own name. He was also the first driver to win a race in a car bearing his own name, a feat also achieved by Bruce McLaren.

After his Formula One career ended in 1970, Brabham founded Engine Developments Ltd. in 1971, which are known as Judd engines after its other co-founder, John Judd.

Brabham had three sons, Geoff, Gary and David. Geoff did not manage to reach Formula One, but Gary and David did so. Gary drove for Life in 1990, while David drove for Brabham in 1990 and Simtek in 1994.

Brabham died in May 2014, aged 88, after a long battle with liver disease. Fellow Australian Daniel Ricciardo dedicated his Canadian Grand Prix win to Brabham.

Starting in 2015, the Australian Grand Prix winners' trophy will be renamed The Sir Jack Brabham Trophy in his memory.
