David Brabham is regarded as one of the world’s elite sports car racers – an outright and triple Le Mans 24 Hours class-winner, double American Le Mans Series Champion and former Formula 1 driver.
David is a member of one of the world’s most successful motor racing families; a dynasty that has achieved three Formula 1 World Drivers Championships 1959, 1960 and 1966 (his father, Sir Jack Brabham AO, OBE), four Le Mans 24 Hours victories 1993, 2007, 2008 & 2009 and nine International Sports Cars titles 1987 – 2010 (David & his brother, Geoffrey) for over seven decades. The family’s winning ways continue today through 3rd generation drivers Sam & Matt Brabham, David’s son and nephew.
The Brabham name is an iconic motor sport brand, a name known to be inspirational, pioneering in its thinking, innovative and excellent engineering. ‘Inspiring Wins Through Pioneering Thinking’.
David brought a unique style to his approach – working with teams to bring them to a higher level of focus, belief and success. His ability to quickly assess a team’s direction, its chances of success and implement a change in thinking to achieve its goals is one of his best qualities, as well as driving a car to its absolute limit.
He has been a Global Leader in Green Racing – an initiative addressing the concerns of global warming, the environment and reducing dependence of foreign fuels and energy sources. His suggestion in 2004 that the American Le Mans Series consider an alternative fuel strategy led to the 2008 creation of the Michelin Green X Challenge.
David has put his illustrious driving career on hold to work on turning the iconic Brabham name into a global brand. He is bringing a new and innovative way to experience motor sport through an online digital platform called Brabham-Digital – a portal where fans, drivers, engineers and students from around the globe can engage, contribute and learn through a transparent Brabham Racing team.
David has raised over £400,000 in 15 years through the Racing4Charity organisation. He also supports Humanity’s Team, Conscience Business Initiative and is a Patron of the ‘Hope for Tomorrow’ charity.
