David Brabham returns to F1
Son of Marque Founder Sir Jack, David Brabham will lead Project Brabham in the World Endurance Championship, say recent reports.
Project Brabham is a crowdfunded project that gets most of its funding from crowdsourcing and the business aims to create a model of open source racing. As per the plan, the project will let fans buy a stake in the team which will take part in Formula 1 races and most notably, the team is led by David Brabham who is expected to make a comeback.
The star is expected to get back on the track and be at the wheels next season, restarting his race with a three year LMP2 programme in the World Endurance Championship. During the fourth year, the marquee will be the constructor in LMP1 and the goal is to win WEC and Le Mans.
There are high prospects of him returning to Formula E and also show up in Formula 1 races eventually. Although he has not shared anything officially yet, there are high chances of him returning to the Formula 1 track, say reports.
The last time he was on the track was in 1992 at a race held in Hungary with Damon Hill in his maiden campaign who later won the championship in the 1996 championship. David Brabham’s father Sir Jack has won the world championship three times in a row and has had an exciting racing career.
Brabham won the Le Mans race in 2009 and said. “I have long dreamt of seeing the Brabham team back out on the track, winning at the highest level and continuing the legacy my father laid down when he first started the team in the ’60s”
