Brabham a suburb

LANDS Minister Brendon Grylls this week unveiled a new suburb in the City of Swan, named Brabham, after motor racing legend Sir Jack Brabham.

The new location is part of the area’s 1,100-hectare urban growth corridor, which has been designated as the primary residential growth space in the City of Swan.

Large population growth is planned for the area, with predictions for the region’s population to reach 33,000 over the next 26 years.

Mr Grylls said the new locality took in the area of the Caversham Motor Racing Circuit reserve, where Sir Jack raced in the early days of his career and where many Western Australians had historical motor racing connections.

He said Sir Jack was an ambassador for Australia as well as an accomplished motor racer.

“Sir Jack is not only a triple Formula One world champion but was also named Australian of the Year in 1966, awarded the Order of the British Empire in 1967 and then knighted for his services to motor sport in 1979,” Mr Grylls said.
