Ex-pa­trese Ar­rows to race in hands of sin­gle-seater ace Brashaw

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Hard-charg­ing his­toric sin­gle-seater racer Jamie Brashaw will step up to His­toric F1 this sea­son in an ex-ric­cardo Pa­trese Ar­rows A1.

Brashaw, who has pro­gressed up through Clas­sic F3 and His­toric F2, ac­quired the car at the end of 2014 but did not run it on track un­til the demon­stra­tion ses­sions at the Good­wood Mem­bers’ Meet­ing in March. His first planned race is at Brands Hatch at the end of May.

The 1978 chas­sis, also raced by Jochen Mass the fol­low­ing sea­son, was more re­cently raced by Steve Allen and the deal in­cluded Allen tak­ing over Brashaw’s F2 March 782.

“It’s fan­tas­tic,” said the Rother­ham driver. “I’m ex­cited about rac­ing it but it has been quite a while get­ting it right.”

Brashaw, who runs the car with his fa­ther Ian, will also race in His­toric F2 in his Chevron B25.
