Project Brabham

David Brabham, son of the late Sir Jack, has relaunched the Brabham brand with an ambitious open-source and partially crowd-funded project. The aim is to run an LMP2 car in the near future and then move up to LMP1. Other classes like Formula E and ultimately even Formula 1 are also under consideration.

More information can be found here:

Brabham | A Racing Dynasty

Project Brabham | Indiegogo

hopefully this will be more successful than the rebadged BMW's that somebody tried to sell as Brabhams many years ago.

That had nothing to do with the Brabham family.

I know, but the initiators of that project surely tried to piggy back on the Brabham name.

The telemetry tier sounds fun, and I hope he succeeds. Worth a 25 quid punt I reckon.

I never thought I'd live to see an Indiegogo being made for a racing team.
