History

The BT41, designed by Geoff Ferris, was the final customer car from Brabham. Very similar to the F2 BT40 it shared an almost identical tub, which on the F3 car had an inner mild steel skin to make minimum weight. An angular car, the F2 design carried a full width sports car nose while the F3 had a more conventional chisel nose with dive planes. Both cars carried side rads. Despite efforts by John Watson and Adrea De Adamich it was to be March's year with priprieatry BMW power and the BDA ppwered cars of any type faded.

In F3 Johnny Gerber drove this car fitted with the aftermarket Falconer bodywork. The angular works bodywork was probably deficient in drag and the side rads proved somewhat inadequate. Falconer designed a much more aero shape with a front rad which was adopted by just about all but the works cars by season's end.

At the end of the season, Fred Opert, with his knack for sensing opportunity, imported the car to the U.S. and outfitted it for Formula C with a Hart 1100 BDJ, where it proved virtually untouchable. It was raced for approximately 5 years in the U.S. and was then consigned to storage. It was rescued a few years ago by a pro FF2000 team and restored as an off-hours project.

The car has an SCCA log book documenting it's U.S race history.
