Brabham confirmed for MINI Challenge outing

MINI Challenge to get a big-name addition with confirmation that David Brabham will compete in Homebush event
David Brabham is to return to home soil to join the MINI Challenge grid for the inaugural race at the new Homebush street circuit.

The American Le Mans Series title winner and Le Mans 24 Hours victor will fly back to Australia for the event, which will tie in with the 50th anniversary of father Jack securing his first F1 title.


“I don't get back to Australia that much these days, so I was delighted to be asked by MINI Australia to come to the Homebush event and drive a MINI John Cooper Works,” he said. “I get to come back home, drive a MINI around a new street circuit, bring my family over from the UK and help celebrate my Dad's 50th anniversary, so Christmas has come early. I must thank MINI Australia and Toleman Motorsport for inviting me, I can't wait.”

The first event at the new Homebush circuit will be the season finale for the MINI Challenge and national manager of MINI Justin Hocevar said Brabham would be a major addition to the grid.

“David will no doubt offer another dynamic to MINI Challenge at Homebush,” he said. “Considering he comes armed with international race experience of the highest calibre, it will be a great opportunity for all drivers to put their skills to the test. Maybe he can take the Uber-Star car to an historic victory?”
