1964 Brabham BT8

Chassis number : SC-2-64

Share on:

The Brabham BT8 debuted at the London Racing Car Show in January of 1964. This is the second of just 12 BT-8s built and is Motor Racing Development's most successful sports/racing car.

This BT-8 is powered by the potent double F1 World Championship-winning 2.5 liter Coventry-Climax FPF four-cylinder engine. It was purchased and raced by BOAC pilot H.P.K. Hugh Dibley for the Stirling Moss Automobile Racing Team. Dibley campaigned SC-2-64 throughout the 1964 season, running at Goodwood, Oulton Park, Aintree, and the Silverstone International Trophy. He scored five wins and four-lap records.

It was sold and raced at the BRSCC meeting at Castle Combe where it placed second behind the SC-2-64's sister, SC-4-64. The following month this BT8 won at both the BRSCC Mallory Park and Brands Hatch.

Brabham built over 500 racing cars. The marque is unique as the only F1 World Champion to wear the name of its World Championship driver.
