Dan Gurney 1931-2018 - Official Brabham Statement
The Brabham family extends their deepest condolences to the Gurney family after the passing of Dan Gurney, one of motorsport's great icons, on Sunday 14 January 2018.
Our father, Jack had a wonderful relationship with Dan and his contribution to the Brabham Racing team was exceptional. Jack and his peers held Dan’s skill as both a driver and engineer in extremely high regard; it was no surprise that he was the first driver to earn Brabham’s maiden grand prix victory, at Rouen in 1964.
Dan’s invaluable contribution to motorsport, particularly helping Brabham to become one of the most successful Formula One teams in history, will never be forgotten.
