The Brabham family has won their legal action in the German High Court to protect the Brabham name from being used without their authorisation.
The family of Sir Jack Brabham had been embroiled in a battle in the German High Court to prevent car dealer Michael Trick from using the Brabham name to market cars in the European Union.
The High Court ruled in the family's favour ensuring that the rights to the Brabham name for marketing now revert to Sir Jack's family.
"I'm delighted that this situation has finally come to an end," said David Brabham. "It's been a long and tiring battle, but this was something I felt we needed to do to protect the Brabham name.
"The global brand stands for success and innovation bolstered from 60 years of racing heritage, and deserves to be protected.
"That respected reputation is built on four F1 Drivers' and two Constructors' titles, while the legacy has continued with myself, Geoff and Gary, adding two Le Mans victories, two American Le Mans Series titles, four IMSA GTP Championships, F3 and F3000 crowns, plus various national and international accolades across the echelons of the sport."
