The return of Brabham Racing

The return of Brabham Racing

Brabham BMW fq

Brabham Racing is back, and is now modifying BMW M-series vehicles.

Brabham was once a well-known name in racing. Founded in 1960 by legendary Australian F1 driver Jack Brabham, the racing constructor went bust from financial liabilities back in 1992, but not before winning the F1 drivers’ title four times and the constructors’ crown twice with such noted drivers as Dan Gurney, both Damon and Graham Hill, Niki Lauda and Nelson Piquet. Brabham’s own 1966 title remains the only championship won in a car bearing its driver’s name. Now after a nearly 16-year break, Brabham is back, and BMWs will never be the same.

Brabham will be offering go-fast BMWs for road and track, and will be showcasing a trio of Bavarian monsters at the upcoming Essen Motor Show in Germany. They will include the M5-based BT 60, the X6-based BT 70 and the M3-based BT 92 pictured. Little else is known at this point, but  it’s good to have a classic racing company back in the fold.
