The Cooper T53 was a Formula 1 racing car built in 1960 by the British Cooper motorsport team.
Jack Brabham drove the new Cooper race car to second place in the International Trophy at Silverstone in May.
At Monaco, in the T53’s first appearance in the World Championship, McLaren drove a strong race, but in second place could not prevent the first Grand Prix victory for Lotus by Stirling Moss in Rob Walker’s Lotus 18.
The car’s potential became clear when Jack Brabham, the 1959 World Champion, won five Grand Prix races in a row from the race in the Netherlands onwards, becoming World Drivers’ Champion once again and claiming the second consecutive Constructors’ Championship title.
As part of the Bosch Hockenheim Historic, Rainer Ott will drive this car at the Raceclub Germany.
