The BT24 was used by the Brabham team in 1967 season and in the beginning of 1968. The car was designed by Ron Tauranac based on previous season winning BT20 and Formula 2 light and compact BT23. The car had fibreglass body on tubular steel space frame chassis – Tauranac still preferred space frame while other Formula One designers shifted to monococque chassis. The power was provided by entirely new Repco 740 engine. In 1968 Brabham Racing Organization used the BT24 in first three Championship races of the season – in South Africa, Spain and Monaco before it was replaced by BT26. Austrian Johen Rindt who came to Brabham from Cooper Cars, took 3rd position in South African Grand Prix, his first race with new team, and retired in Spain and Monaco. When the team switched to BT26, Rindt was able to finish only once, in 3rd position again – this time in Germany, and retired in all other races.
