Can Miami Grand Prix top 1959 Formula 1 race at Sebring and Jack Brabham


A driver running out of gas, pushing his car across the finish line and winning a world championship.

That’s where the bar is set for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix this weekend around Hard Rock Stadium. Organizers are determined to put on a show, what with concerts, a beach, yachts and celebs serving as window dressing for the first Formula 1 race in Florida in 63 years.

Australian Jack Brabham raced in the 1966 United States Grand Prix at Watkins Glen in his personally designed Brabham Formula 1 powered by a Repco Engine.

Just try topping what happened on that wild and wacky weekend in Sebring in 1959 when Aussie Jack Brabham snagged the title as the world’s top driver and most famous human tow truck after he ran out of fuel just shy of the checkered flag. Brabham then ran out of fuel himself, collapsing from exhaustion after sidestepping disqualification had anyone helped him push his vehicle.
