Brabham returns to JTR

Sam Brabham will return to JTR for a second attempt at the Formula Ford Championship in 2014.


Brabham, 19, finished fourth in the championship last year in what was a positive debut season.

“It feels really good to be back with JTR this season,” he said.

“We had a brilliant first year and together we achieved results I didn’t think would be possible in my rookie season.”

JTR ran Dan Cammish to the championship last year, and with the addition of Brabham and South African Jayde Kruger, will be looking to complete a hat-trick of championships this year.

Team principle of JTR and current British GT stalwart Nick Tandy is positive Brabham can hit the ground running at the start of the season.

“We’re extremely pleased to be returning with Sam this year, not least because he is very likely to be a strong contender for JTR to go for our third successive championship title.”

The Brit is not short of pedigree, as he is the son of Le Mans 24 Hour winner David Brabham and Grandson of treble F1 champion Jack Brabham.

David Brabham said: “He is now in a great position to fight for the title from the start of the season with a team we not only know well in JTR, but also know how to win.”

The 2014 Formula Ford season kicks of on March 30 at Brands Hatch.
