Birmingham-based intellectual property firm Forresters is backing a bid to return the legendary Brabham Racing team to the track – and ultimately to Formula One.
The project is already over halfway to hitting its first crowdfunding target of £250,000 following a staggering response from fans.
David Brabham – son of the racing legend Sir Jack – is inviting the motorsport community to become a part of the new Brabham Racing team and help shape its future through crowd funding.
Fans have embraced the open source racing model David is developing, which promises openness and transparency, giving unprecedented behind the scenes access while inspiring drivers and engineers through the Brabham-Digital immersive online portal.
Over 1,700 funders have already helped Project Brabham to reach over the 60 per cent mark on its first total which, once hit, will ensure the front end of the new Brabham-Digital portal can be delivered, enabling fans to watch and contribute to the team’s initial stages of development.
The community will also be able to vote and interact on certain team decisions, receiving regular video, written and audio updates until the team is fully formed.
Forresters’ Birmingham office partner Matt Shaw said: “The response from fans has been truly staggering. As the intellectual property firm chosen to handle all trademark matters for Brabham, we have long been supportive of this iconic family, and as sponsors of the up and coming MSA Formula Ford star Sam Brabham, we are proud to be doing our bit to support this ground-breaking project.”
