David Brabham set for Macau return

Patrón Highcroft Racing's David Brabham will attend the Macau Grand Prix in a few weeks time.
David Brabham will be a VIP guest at Macau later this month, after organisers announced that he will attend to help celebrate the tenth anniversary of the establishment of the Macau SAR.

Brabham, the son of three-time F1 World champion, Sir Jack Brabham, won the prestigious Macau F3 Grand Prix back in 1989, beating the likes of Michael Schumacher, Mika Hakkinen and Eddie Irvine.

Brabham still has fond memories of that victory, and believes the event has lost none of its cache in the last 20 years.

"For a Formula 3 driver, Macau is the Holy Grail. I think everybody recognises it's a tough race to win. It's still seen as the place for a young driver to demonstrate his talent," said the Patrón Highcroft Racing man.

"I was fortunate enough to win Macau and Formula 3, and then I went from Formula 3 to F1. Macau can do that to your career."

Meanwhile, having not set foot in Macau since '89, Brabham believes it is time to go back and re-visit the event which played such an integral part in his career.

"Sometimes you get a flashback, something you read or you bump into someone, and it's always nice to think about Macau," he continued.

The Windsor Arch 56th Macau Grand Prix will be held from November 19-22, and will feature the Macau Formula 3 Grand Prix, the final rounds of the FIA World Touring Car Championship, the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix, and a host of supporting races.
