Project Brabham Launches Official T-shirt At Autosport International
Brabham will kick off the new year with the launch of the official Project Brabham T-shirt at Autosport International, 8-11 January at Birmingham’s NEC. Brabham Racing Team Principal, David Brabham will be in attendance throughout Project Brabham’s first trade and public showcase, offering supporters the perfect opportunity to be the first to own the shirt and also get it signed by David.
“After launching Project Brabham we had a lot of feedback from the community about introducing a Project Brabham T-shirt as they wanted to wear it in support of our team,” explained David. “Autosport International is the perfect place to launch the ‘Inspiring wins through pioneering thinking’ Tee, allowing our supporters and wider show fans to snap one up early. We are really looking forward to meeting our Brabham community and introducing new members at Europe's biggest motorsport show. See you there.”
The tastefully designed black, 100% cotton T-shirt will be available from stand 7210 in Hall 7 in a wide range of sizes including small, medium, large, extra-large and double extra-large. Priced at £20, the Project Brabham Tee will also be available online after the show by visiting www.brabham.co.uk and clicking on Store.
David, son of Sir Jack and founder of the bold new approach for racing which makes motorsport more accessible, transparent, and engaging to fans, will hold daily autograph signing sessions at 11am from the Project Brabham stand. Third generation driver and multiple Formula Ford race winner, Sam Brabham will also conduct signing sessions at 3pm each day.
David will be appearing daily on the Autosport Central Stage and the F1 Racing Grid on Saturday and Sunday, where the sportscar legend will talk about his vision for the return of the iconic Brabham Racing team and share his ideas for a sustainable future in motorsport.
Limited edition Brabham Retro merchandise, celebrating Sir Jack Brabham’s outstanding legacy, will also be available for purchase with a special show offer of £5 off T-shirts and hats.
Visitors to stand 7210 can learn more about David’s new model for open source motorsport as Brabham Racing strives to return via the FIA World Endurance Championship. Members of the core Brabham Racing team will be available to chat and visitors will be offered the chance to join the 3,000 strong crowdfunding community that has helped Project Brabham become one of the largest successfully-funded sports campaigns on any English speaking platform.
