    a letter to Sir Jack Brabham

    as per the Australian story thread, I am going to post this off soon to the old fella.

    Dear Sir Jack,

    After watching you on Australian Story on the ABC, we at performanceforums.com decided it was necessary for us to get together and let you know that you are not forgotten in Australia. We, as a group, would like you to know that your achievements and success will be long remembered and revered.

    For many of us you are an icon of motorsport, and source of inspiration. Your involvement with the sport is longer than most of as have been alive, and we acknowledge the huge impact you have had on the sport. Pushing your car over the line to take the WDC at the Sebring GP in '59 is an example of both your guts and everything that we love about motorsport and Australia. We doubt that any of the current crop of F1 superstars would have a tenth of the ‘balls’and grit it took to achieve what you have in your racing career, achievements that to this day are un matched.

    We are all proud to be able to say that we, like you, are Australian motorsport supporters and will continue to be so while we can.

    We, as a group, would like to thank you for your involvement, efforts and accomplishments, and wish you the best for your future.

    With kind regards, and much respect,

    The members of Performanceforums.com




    any one wishing to have their name attached (real ones) either post or PM them to me and I will print out a list and post it off to him.

    I think this is a great idea and urge any one who agrees with me to attach their name.

    cheers, Paul

    2ND paragraph....."you HAVE been an icon of motor sport" ...past tense??

    he is still alive

    should read....................... "you ARE an icon.... present tense???

    note the question marks, it didn't sound correct.[to me]

                Dear Sir Jack,

                After watching you on Australian Story on the ABC, we at performanceforums.com decided it was necessary for us to get together and let you know that you are not forgotten in Australia.

                Performanceforums is a large close knit car community based in Australia with a handful of ‘ex-pats’ residing internationally, totalling 1000+ members. It’s a community with a strong interest in motorsport with many members competing in various categories at a grass roots level with some at a national level.

                An overwhelming majority of members watched your story on ABC on Tuesday night and after discussion felt compelled to write to you.

                We, as a group, would like you to know that your achievements and success will be long remembered and revered. For many of us you have been an icon of motorsport, and source of inspiration. Your involvement with the sport is longer than most of as have been alive, and we acknowledge the huge impact you have had on the sport. Pushing your car over the line to take the WDC at the Sebring GP in '59 is an example of both your guts and everything that we love about motorsport and Australia. Watching this footage in black and white struck many close to heart as a display of true Australian grit and determination. We doubt that any of the current crop of F1 superstars would have a tenth of the ‘balls’and grit it took to achieve what you have in your racing career, achievements that to this day are un matched. An era when men were men.

                We are all proud to be able to say that we, like you, are Australian motorsport supporters and will continue to be so while we can.

                We, as a group, would like to thank you for your involvement, efforts and accomplishments, and wish you the best for your future.

                With kind regards, and much respect,

                    Fix this and add my name Tony Maxwell to the list.

                            Bill's done the Nurby 24hr, so this line should read: "....many members competing in various categories at a club level with some at a national & even international level."
