Brabham targets strong Detroit.

Having produced another stunning performance to take a second consecutive American Le Mans Series class win - and fourth victory of the season for Patron Highcroft Racing at Mosport - David Brabham will hope to continue the strong recent form for the Acura squad in the latest ALMS round this weekend at Belle Isle.

Brabham and team-mate Scott Sharp have closed to within ten points of the class leading Penske Porsche pairing of Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas, the Highcroft duo will look to bring that gap down still further in the Detroit Sportscar Challenge.

Having already secured a strong result at the street circuit in the past, Brabham said he was confident going into the weekend and added that he wasn't thinking too much about the championship – with his focus firmly on securing the best result possible and then seeing what it leads to.

“After another really great result at Mosport, we are really looking forward to the next round at Detroit,” he said. “We finished third there last year and the Patrón Highcroft Racing Acura is really strong on the street circuits so I'm confident that we can keep doing what we have been doing so well.

“The competition is sure to be fierce, as it has been all season, and the fact that the Penske Porsche made a mistake with fuel at Mosport means that they will be under pressure heading to the next round. But they are bound to have had a bit of a shake up and will come back fighting.

“We approach each round with the same mentality to win the race, and not concentrate too much on the championship, so we will keep on doing that and see what happens at the end of the day.”
