Brabhams at Brands Hatch


At this weekend’s Masters Historic Festival at Brands Hatch David Brabham will lead a parade of cars built and raced under the Brabham name.

“I think it will be one of the most emotional times I could have,” said David. “With Dad’s passing, seeing the response from people around the world sending their thoughts and emotions, it’s been quite incredible. Brands Hatch was a second home for the family because Dad had a fantastic relationship with [former managing director] John Webb for a very long time. The main straight’s named after him.

“When I first came here I lived at Brands Hatch for six months with Gary, we were both instructors there and the family has won a lot at Brands, so it’s a very special place for us. To go to there and drive one of dad’s old Brabham cars at a time like this after his passing… it’s going to be difficult to keep the emotions at bay, that’s for sure.”
