Auto: Seventy years of the Brabham story: Countdown begins to start of new era
Celebrating an illustrious and unprecedented history and hinting at the next chapter, the countdown has begun on the new Brabham Automotive website.
The Brabham name first hit the track in 1948, when Sir Jack Brabham made his Australian competition debut. The legendary racer went on to become triple Formula 1 World Champion and is still the only person to win the title in a car bearing his name.
Now seventy years on, as the company prepares to reveal the start of a new era, it’s a perfect time to reflect upon a legacy of achievements and historic milestones.
Seventy defining dates, images and insights will be revealed on the website to celebrate the evolving story of a lineage of champion racers, engineers and innovators. Released daily, the seventy moments will also provide glimpses of the future, counting down to the unveiling of Brabham Automotive’s first project on 2 May 2018.
Capturing the passion and success that the Brabham name is famous for, this new project will see one of motorsport’s most memorable marques return to the spotlight.
Spearheaded by multiple Le Mans winner, David Brabham, this announcement is the culmination of years of planning, design and development.
Speaking at the start of the countdown, Managing Director, David Brabham said: “My father had an incredible determination to succeed and, like him, I have worked tirelessly to bring the iconic Brabham name back to the global stage. This new chapter of the Brabham story will continue in the same spirit, but with renewed direction, focus and vigour. This announcement makes me feel incredibly proud as we enter a new era for the legendary Brabham name.”
More information on Brabham Automotive will be announced shortly, and both media and the public are invited to register via the new website, www.brabhamautomotive.com, to receive updates as they become available.
