Have any other TNFers seen this thread on Flickr -

Allegedly this is an ex-Lauda car, though I have seen no reference anywhere to this partnership. All my records for his 1970 single seater races reflect him competing in the McNamara. I have never seen any suggestion that the Austrian ever drove an F3 Brabham. So is this just a case of misinformation, or am I missing something?

I think it will refer to Tim Kary's Brabham BT28 which 'acted' the part of Lauda's McNamara in the Ron Howard film 'Rush'

So, Lauda did not drive a BT-28 in period? Clearly his ride for Rush is a Brabham, but I can't find any results showing that in period.
