David Brabham says he is fully focused on 'achieving the dream' of a third straight win in the Le Mans 24 Hours as he prepares to fight for his first success in the premier LMP1 class.
Brabham has taken GT1 class honours for the past two seasons with the Aston Martin Racing team but will now form part of the factory Peugeot squad at La Sarthe, sharing the #9 car with Alex Wurz and Marc Gene.
Should Brabham, who currently leads the ALMS standings with his regular Patron Highcroft Racing outfit, take victory in the French classic, he would join a select band to have won the event in different classes, and he said he was fully focused on going for victory.
“The Le Mans 24 Hours is one of the highlights of my season and racing this fantastic event with the Peugeot team will be a great experience,” he said. “We head to Le Mans with a lot more confidence, armed with banks of information gained from the Spa 1000 kilometres and the additional test at Paul Ricard where it was great to get more mileage in the Peugeot in the 30-hour endurance simulation.
“I've been focused on gathering as much information as possible for Le Mans, in the way that the car works, the traction control, and the tyres, gleaning every bit of data to ensure that I am well on top of things when I get to Le Mans. Now my aim is to go and get the job done.
“I've won the GT1 class with Aston Martin Racing for the last two years, so it would be wonderful to make it three in a row and I head to France with every intention of achieving that dream.”
