Between 1964 and 1968 Jochen Rindt has driven the Brabham in private Brabham team of Roy Winkelmann - the most successful Formula 2 team of the sixties. Today only three original cars exist from this series. No other formula car reached in the end of the sixties more wins than the Brabham BT23-5. This was partly not lease because of the extreme driving style and the spectacular use of Jochen Rindt, whereby the Brabham gets in peak form. In 1970 during training for the Italian Grand Prix in Monza Rindt had a deadly accident. His point advantage at this season was enough to be until today the only driver to posthumously Formula 1 World Champion.
