1975 Brabham BT44B Pace LB

Brabham BT44 was designed by Gordon Murray for 1974 season and was used by the works team in 1974-75. The car followed conventional line of mid-70s design with an aluminium monococque body and  standard Ford DFV/Hewland gearbox combination. The strong feature of the BT44 was its aerodynamics due to clean body lines and use of side skirts and airdams, a precursor to ground effects aerodynamics. The team driver #1 Argentinian Carlos Reutemann took three wins in 1974, but many retirements in other races dropped him to only 6th place in the Championship. For the 1975 season the car was upgraded to ‘B’ specification,  and Carlos Pace won his first and only Grand Prix at his home event in Brazil, while Reutemann won at the Nürburgring. A series of other strong finishes helped Reutemann to finish third in the drivers’ championship in 1975, whilst Pace was 6th. The model is from “Lendas Brasileiras” Collection.
