During the 1958-59 European racing season, the Cooper was the only rear-engined Grand Prix contender, and within three years, the front-engined cars had virtually disappeared. Many consider the 2.5-litre Formula 1 Cooper-Climax (engine was made by Coventry Climax) to be the most successful Grand Prix racer Britain ever produced; it took over where the front-engined Vanwall racer had left off. The Cooper-Climax brought England the Constructors' Championship twice running, provided the mount for Jack Brabham's two World Championships, initiated a design trend followed throughout Europe, and eventually influenced American track-racing car design. In the 1960 season Brabham won five grands prix in a row in a Cooper, and Coopers won a total of ten Grand Prix that year.
