Brabham hopes for strong weekend.

David Brabham will look to build on the strong recent form of the Patron Highcroft Racing team to keep his LMP2 championship challenge on track at Road American in the seventh round of the ALMS season.

Following on from victory at Lime Rock and second in class finish at Mid-Ohio, Brabham and team-mate Scott Sharp head into the weekend lying second in LMP2 behind Penske pairing Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas – with the gap to the Porsche drivers currently 28 points.

Brabham admitted that he feels the Road America circuit is amongst the best on the ALMS calendar and said that the hopeful addition of new parts for the team's Acura could be vital to its chances of success.

"A lot of preparation has gone into this next race but a lot depends on whether some new parts will be available in time for Road America," he said. "We have an intensive ongoing development programme in place and although we are clearly competitive, with a great run and outright victory at Lime Rock followed by second in class at Mid-Ohio, we need to go even better at Road America.

"It's time for us to step up to the plate and the Patron Highcroft Racing team have proved time and again that they can keep pushing the boundaries and I have every confidence in them. If we can get the development parts ready in time we will definitely improve on last year's result.

"Obviously our aim will be to win at Road America and every remaining round in order to beat the Porsches and win the championship."
