David Brabham Returns To Goodwood Festival of Speed

David Brabham will return to the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, 26-28 June, to take on a duo of driving duties while continuing investor and partner discussions to bring the iconic Brabham Racing team back to world-class competition.
A long time supporter of the world-famous event, the triple Le Mans 24 Hours outright and class winner will continue the Brabham family's long relationship with Nissan and drive the mighty 1000hp, 1990 Le Mans 24 Hour pole-winning Nissan R90CK up the famous 1.16-mile hill climb course. Running in Batch 5, Brabham is scheduled to sprint up the hill at 11.35 and 15.50 on Friday, 11.25 and 13.10 on Saturday, and 12.20 and 14.30 on Sunday.
Adding to his driving duties, David will also support the Richard Burns Foundation by driving one of the rally legend's favourite cars on Sunday afternoon.

This will be David's first visit to the stunning Goodwood Estate as Brabham Racing Team Principal following the launch of the Project Brabham funding model late last year. Since then thousands of global fans, drivers and engineers have been inspired to join the world's first community driven, open source, subscription funded motorsport business, to get direct insider access and contribute to rebuilding the house that legendary triple Formula 1 World Champion Sir Jack Brabham built.

"I always look forward to attending the Goodwood Festival of Speed and this year looks to be another great event," said David. "It will give me a chance to see lots of people from the industry and the amazing fans that turn up each year. It also gives me the opportunity to speak about Project Brabham to our Brabham community and possible partners. Who knows, I might bump into an investor while I'm there...!

"I'll be driving the Nissan Group C car in which Mark Blundell smashed the qualifying record at Le Mans in 1990, so it's going to be a lot of fun. The Brabham family has a successful history with Nissan, what with Geoff's four IMSA GTP Championship titles while I won the Spa 24 Hours with Nissan in 1991, so it's great to continue that relationship.

"I am also assisting with the Richard Burns Foundation and driving one his favourite cars, a 1969 Chevy Camaro, so I'm looking forward to that."

Brabham fans and community members will be able to catch up with David in the support paddock between runs throughout the weekend.
