He formed a formidable partnership with Jack Brabham and showed a friendship and close working relationship that created one of the best engineer-driver partnerships ever. His work indeed stretched beyond the confines of Formula 1, with the Ralt chassis.

Very sad, but good to see he kept himself busy and active right to the end. He was Patron at the Phillip Island Historic meet when he was 90.
RIP Ron.

R.I.P. 95, what a great innings. When I first started following F1, I had no idea about who it was that actually designed F1 cars, until I saw a picture of the iconic Lobster Claw Brabham BT 34.

I may be wrong here, but I don't think that Ron can be blamed for that particular shambles, I think he had left Brabham by then!

He designed the BT 34 in 1971 and left Brabham in 1972. I always liked it because it looked different, particularly in this photo from the 1971 Italian GP. It's best results were 5th in the 1971 Austrian GP and 1st in the BRDC International Trophy at Silverstone on April 23, 1972.

This is quite an interesting article on the car.

Beat me to it. RT designed the 1971 BT34... as he had done with every prior Brabham F1 car from the first in 1963, the BT3.
Ralph Bellamy designed the 1972 BT37 car.
The next F1 car was the 1973 BT42 of Gordon Murray.

I thought it was interesting how Gordon Murray went back to Ron Tauronac's idea of two radiators in front of the left and right wheels and a wing positioned between them. He continued with the twin radiator concept with the BT 44 and 45.

BT43


BT 34

I sstand corrected then, I thought Ron had moved on before the uncompetitive BT34 was penned.

I have one of his superb cars an RT34 nearly the last but not quite. The attention to detail is unbelievable. The panels are interchangable from car to car including all of the rivet holes.

The amount of Ralts he produced was superb, he did a lot for the lower formulae. Left no stone unturned

Keep that prized RT34 possession
