Brab­ham BT2 takes first UK win at Cas­tle Combe

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The For­mula Ju­nior Brab­ham BT2 now driven by in­ter­na­tional GT racer Richard Bradley scored its first UK win since 1986 dur­ing the Cas­tle Combe Au­tumn Clas­sic.

The 1962 car, chas­sis FJ-9-62, was raced by Roger Mac in pe­riod but en­joyed the most suc­cess with Mike Har­ri­son in the decade up to 1986 in the early years of His­toric For­mula Ju­nior.

It then spent 30 years in North Amer­ica be­fore the Bradley fam­ily ac­quired it and shipped it to the UK in time for last month’s Good­wood Re­vival. Bradley then mas­tered the con­di­tions at Cas­tle Combe on Satur­day to score an em­phatic win.

“It’s very dif­fer­ent to what I’m used to,” said the cur­rent Ja­panese GT racer.
