Brabham Branding Launches Classic F1 Race Car Simulators
Fancy driving a Brabham race car? Of course you do. But while that is, for most us, an unlikely scenario, there is a chance of getting that Brabham thrill through a new series of simulators that Brabham Branding is producing in collaboration with Base Performance Simulators (BPS), a UK-based company that specialises in the creation of driver development simulators.
To celebrate the motor racing history of the Brabham name, the three new simulators will pay tribute to some of the company’s most iconic Formula One grand prix cars and be styled after those cars. Each rig will allow drivers to test, compete and play on a professional level – be they professional racing drivers, esports competitors, or home gamers.
The three limited-edition Brabham Motorsport / Base Performance Simulator racing simulators include the BT19 – the car that Sir Jack Brabham raced to his third Formula 1 World Drivers’ Championship, and which made Brabham the first, and so far only, driver to win the world championship in a car of his own construction. The next simulator is the BT46B, which was the groundbreaking ‘fan car’ that debuted at the 1978 Swedish Grand Prix. The BT46B simulator comes in the red, white, and blue of that car. Finally, there’s the BT52, which was the company’s 1983 Formula One season car which Nelson Piquet drove to his second world championship title.
“The Brabham Branding team are excited to not only be involved in such a great project, but also to see these incredible works of art come to life in a way that will inspire people to get behind the wheel and develop their driving skills,” said David Brabham, owner of the Brabham racing name. “As we continue to grow the Brabham brand through our Brand Partnership Programme, this new collaboration with BPS is the next exciting chapter where drivers who enjoy driving on simulators can be part of the Brabham journey.”
Brabham Motorsport range of racing simulators are available for £24,990 ($AU47,210) from baseperformance.net
