David Brabham was awarded the BRDC Woolf Barnato Trophy, sponsored by Gulf, for the second successive season during the annual British Racing Drivers' Club Awards ceremony in London.

Brabham one again collected the award alongside Aston Martin Racing team-mate Darren Turner, with the pair having been the highest-placed finishing British or Commonwealth drivers in a British car, following their GT1 Le Mans 24-Hour class victory in the #009 Aston Martin DBR9.

"This year was my 15th year of racing at Le Mans, so to win the GT1 class again with Aston Martin Racing and the support of Gulf was something special," Brabham said. "The BRDC Woolf Barnato Trophy just tops it off.

"The Le Mans 24-Hour race is one of the highlights of my season and after competing in it for so long I am always keen to return. What will happen next year is anyone's guess, but I have an open mind and hope the opportunity will arise again.

"Naturally my priority for 2009 is the LMP1 programme in the American Le Mans Series with Acura and Patr?n Highcroft Racing, so if the race fits around that schedule I certainly hope to return."
