Sam Brabham will make a long-awaited return to racing action this weekend as he makes his Porsche Carrera Cup GB debut at Silverstone this weekend.

The 24 year old, son of Le Mans winner David Brabham and grandson of three-time Formula 1 champion Sir Jack Brabham, will compete for the first time since 2014.

Brabham has joined reigning champions Redline Racing for his Porsche bow as he competes once again on the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship support package.

The Banbury-based racer made his racing debut in Formula Ford GB in 2013, finishing second in the Scholarship class, before he became a double race-winner in MSA Formula the next year.

While Brabham was previously a finalist for the 2015 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholarship, his first taste of the current-generation 911 will come in an official test at Silverstone tomorrow.

His livery for the weekend will pay homage to the Brabham family’s 70 years of racing heritage, including the iconic ‘Hissing Sid’ which is synonymous with the family.

“To say I’m delighted to be joining the Carrera Cup GB at Silverstone with Redline Racing is an understatement,” said Brabham.

“It has been a long four years out of competitive racing, however, everything I’ve experienced during that time has made me more than ready for this opportunity.

“It means a huge amount to be making my racing return at a track steeped in Brabham success, with a special livery marking Brabham’s illustrious history.

“I’d really like to thank my long-standing partners, Forresters and Ballinacurra House for their invaluable support.

“I’ve wanted to make the switch to sportscars for a long time. This will still be a big challenge but I’m ready and extremely excited to get going.”
