His son David, who notably won the 24 hours of Le Mans in 2009 with Peugeot, has devised a new Brabham car, which will first be reserved for circuits pending a possible homologation of a GT in the coming years. "It's been twelve years since I thought of putting Brabham's legendary name back on the stage, with the desire to return to international competition.
