Brabham Performance Clinic
An inspirational force in driver development
David Brabham founded Brabham Performance Clinic in 2004 with the aim of channeling his unrivalled expertise to inspire the next generation of racing champions.
Drawing on over 30 years of racing experience, through karts and single-seaters to F1 and across the highest sportscar echelons, David uses his global ethos and winning mentality to help drivers realise their ultimate ambitions and perform at the highest level.
Brabham Performance Clinic developed the MSA’s young driver development and education programme, of which David was National Race Coach for six years, while he was also one of the first to become a Level 2 certified racing coach. He continues as a consultant as the MSA manages Team UK in-house from 2013.
Through that groundbreaking programme, David has helped to guide drivers such as Marussia F1’s Max Chilton, McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver Alexander Sims, Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 test driver Sam Bird, and Sahara Force India F1 Team reserve driver James Calado, to name a few.
Breathe and Believe - Philosophy
Brabham Performance Clinic philosophy centres around one single notion; that “We all have the same human tools, it’s how we use them that dictates our achievements.”
The company’s mission is to help clients achieve unfaltering focus in the pursuit of success. To Breathe and Believe, and accept Infinite Possibilities.
The same principles can be applied not only to motorsport, but all areas of sport, everyday life and business. Brabham Performance Clinic has worked with schools and youth groups, local authorities, corporate organsiations and charities.
The Power of One
Unquestionably one of the most consciously aware drivers of his generation, David is also renowned for the motivational energy and focused force he brings to any team environment.
His unique ability to gauge and direct the driver and team dynamic in such a way that inspires everyone to break boundaries has delivered outstanding results for decades.
David has repeatedly proved the ‘power of one’ – that when a team is united in a common goal, great things can be achieved, whether with an underfunded outfit or manufacturer-backed concern.
With each programme mentored by David, Brabham Performance Clinic works with elite industry partners, such as , and MSA qualified coaches, to mastermind bespoke development schemes that enhance the driver in mind, body and performance, to enable them to perform to the best of their ability.
