Brabham Automotive, the manufacturers of the Brabham BT62 which makes its track debut at Brands Hatch on November 9 – 10, has announced partnerships with Symec, a technology business based in the south west of the UK with a European office in Poland and Force Accessories, an Australian designer and manufacturer of motorcycle and motorsport accessories.
Brabham Automotive is spearheaded by David Brabham, son of the late Sir Jack Brabham, three-time Formula One champion. David Brabham has also enjoyed an extensive motorsport career at the highest level, taking the overall win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2009 and the American Le Mans Series title the same year. The BT62 was unveiled in May 2018 with David Brabham making it clear that he wanted to take the family name back to Le Mans and compete at the highest level of GT racing.
Symec works with companies to improve their mobile landscape, optimise their hardware and bring businesses together by offering wider avenues for connection and collaboration. The company specialises in mobile communication management, P2P collaboration, data storage and access, predictive analytics, remote access networks, smart buildings and business asset management.
Force Accessories was established in 2005 and its goal is to bring motorcycle accessories that offer excellent value for money by manufacturing and distributing a range of proprietary products by a company that is proudly Australian owned.
Brabham Automotive CEO Dan Marks is excited about working with Symec.
“It’s wonderful to have Symec on board s we embark on an exciting new chapter for Brabham Automotive, bringing a new Brabham-badged car to the race track for the first time in nearly 30 years.” said Dan Marks.
“More broadly, we look forward to working with Symec to optimise our communications, technology and processes for the future.”
Symec Sales Director Alex Whiting is also looking to the future with the relationship.
“We’re thrilled to support Brabham Automotive as they bring their iconic marque back to the motor racing world. Innovation is at the heart of what we do at Symec and it is an exciting time to partner with such a forward-thinking organisation – both on and off the track.”
CEO of Force Accessories Ian Sharkey is delighted to have established a partnership with a fellow Australian brand.
“Force Accessories is proud to take the opportunity to partner with Brabham Automotive in the debut of the new race car,” said Ian Sharkey. “Innovation in design and commitment to Australian manufacturing are common synergies between our two companies. We look forward to sharing this success both on and off the race track.”
The Brabham BT62 will be seen on track in European competition for the first time at 10:15 UK time on Saturday November 9 for the opening practice session for Round Eight of the 2019 Dunlop Endurance Championship run by Britcar.
The lights go out for the first one-hour race of the weekend at 16:25 local time later that afternoon, the grid racing into darkness on the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit.
