In a new video, the Brabham BT62 is seen lapping Australia’s Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit at high speed during pre-launch testing, with MD David Brabham behind the wheel.
The car has been in development more than two years. Brabham Automotive’s director of technology and engineering, Paul Birch, explained how the car has been engineered: “Don’t think of the BT62 as a supercar or track-biased road car, think of it as an unrestricted GT racer – it’s in a different league. Weighing just 972kg dry, it’s light, very light. Factor in the car’s power, and the way the Brabham engine delivers its performance and you have an incredibly effective package.”
