Fangio vs Brabham, 1978

Here is an extremely memorable piece of footage where 5-time world champion, Juan Manuel Fangio, aged 66, races against Jack Brabham. The 4 lap ‘demonstration’ was run after the Australian Grand Prix at Sandown in 1978. With Fangio in his W196 Mercedes Benz and Brabham in his Repco Brabham, a car 12 years newer than Fangio’s.
An awesome exhibition of great racing cars, pushed to their limit against one another, a special clip.
