Brabham BT2 takes first UK win at Castle Combe
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.
