Brabham BT62 completes Australian testing…heading to Europe
The Brabham BT62 has completed its final round of dynamic testing in Australia ahead of its next round of testing in Europe.
AFTER ITS GLAMOROUS reveal in London a month ago, the Brabham BT62 has finished its final round of dynamic testing in Australia and will now head to Europe. In a video released today, multiple Le Mans winner and Brabham Automotive’s Managing Director, David Brabham, is seen pushing the car to its limits at The Bend Motorsport Park.
Speaking about the testing at The Bend, Brabham said: “The BT62 is incredibly responsive and rewarding to drive, and as a result, it’s very easy to feel at one with the car. The steering is very direct and does exactly what you want it to do. There’s a very wide window of grip and the confidence that the car gives you as a driver, even in the wet, is outstanding.”
Brabham Automotive’s Director of Engineering and Technology, Paul Birch, commented, “Our testing in Australia has proven what the BT62 is capable of in terms of performance, pace and handling – and it’s seriously impressive. As the program advances into Europe, we’ll continue to balance and optimise the car’s set-up and configurations for different driving styles, tracks and conditions.”
The next phase of testing will see the Brabham BT62 take to the Algarve International Circuit at Portimao, Portugal, later this month.
