The Brabham name to return to endurance
Brabham Automotive, led by 2009 24 Hours of Le Mans winner and former WEC competitor David Brabham, has announced its intention to enter the 2021/2022 FIA World Endurance Championship in the LMGTE Pro class.
The entry will be linked to the new Brabham Automotive BT62 track car and heralds the return of a legendary Australian name to competition. However, as David Brabham notes, there is much work to be done before Autumn 2021.
“Returning the Brabham name to Le Mans is something I have been working on for years, so it’s fantastic to make this announcement,” he said.
“Brabham Automotive only launched its first car, the BT62, in May 2018 so we have a long road to travel to earn the right to return to compete at Le Mans.
“That work starts now with a long-term racing commitment. We look forward to developing the BT62 and future products while building a world-class competitive race team around the leading engineering and manufacturing talent we have in the business.”
