In fact, even John Cooper couldn’t resist fielding a car in the Indianapolis 500.  In 1961, his highly innovative Cooper Climax T54 in the capable hands of defending Formula 1 World Champion, Jack Brabham, finished the 500-mile race in the top-10. The significance? Cooper’s car was the only one in the race with the engine placed behind the driver. Every winning car since 1965 has utilized Cooper’s design concept.
