Brabs In A Saleen At Sebring
drivers in a GTS car is the norm for Sebring – so Jeff Giangrande
has done the logical thing and employed the best man available,
to join Johnny Mowlem and Terry Borcheller, in the ACEMCO Saleen:
From Bentley at Sebring
last year (through Bentley at Le Mans and then the Care Racing Ferrari
in the bulk of the ALMS) to Saleen at Sebring this year, it’s
been an eventful 12 months for the Australian. Next month, he’ll
be racing against long time partner Jan Magnussen, of course.
The arrangement is currently
for just this one race, but could we see him in the Saleen or something
else this season?
“There are quite
a few things on the boil,” commented Brabham, “but this
offer came up and it was obviously better to get a race under my
belt. As far as the rest of the year goes, nothing is set yet –
but I could be in a Ferrari in the ALMS, or something in Europe.”
He’ll be testing
with ACEMCO at Sebring during the week beginning March 23, and that
will be the Australian’s first opportunity to drive a Saleen.
Yes, he is still
an Australian: remember his driving suit at Le Mans last June? Bentley
seemed to want to turn him into a British racing driver.
