David & Sam Brabham Set For SR3 Challenge Debut
16 July 2014

Former Formula One racer, Le Mans 24H winner and American Le Mans Series double champion David Brabham is the latest confirmed driver for this weekend’s Grove & Dean Motorsport Insurance Radical SR3 Challenge round at Snetterton in Norfolk.
Sportscar and single-seater ace David will share the Radical Works-run SR3 RS with his son, Dunlop MSA British Formula Ford race-winner Sam Brabham. It is the first time that the father-and-son pairing has shared a race drive, and also the first that either has driven Radical’s best-selling SR3 RS race and track car. 

“I am really looking forward to having my first race with Sam this weekend at Snetterton. We have never driven a Radical before, but I am sure it will be a lot of fun,” said David Brabham. “It will be a great learning experience for Sam to drive another car and for me to pass on my 30 years’ experience in a real racing environment. I thank Phil Abbott of Radical for this opportunity.”
BRDC Rising Star Sam Brabham is relishing his first taste of sports-prototype competition in the SR3 Challenge, a championship renowned for wheel-to-wheel racing in the identical-spec SR3 RS racers. “It's a fantastic opportunity to be racing a new car as well as being teammates with dad, who has so much experience I know I will learn things I can't learn anywhere else. It should be a great weekend and I am really looking forward to it."

Radical Sportscars Technical Director Phil Abbott said:
“It’s always a privilege to welcome a driver like David with experience and success across a range of motorsport disciplines including Formula One, Le Mans, ALMS, British F3 and the Bathurst 1000 – with David’s extensive Le Mans experience I’m sure he’ll feel right at home in the SR3 RS. The fighting spirit displayed by Sam in this year’s Dunlop MSA British Formula Ford Championship season will serve him well in the competitive Snetterton field, featuring four Le Mans Series racers amongst others.”
