Still have the Brabham BT-21.  Just had her rebuilt over the winter but haven't raced her in a few years. Maybe will sell her. Or keep and race her!

Anyway, have just plopped the 20 year old Papy disk and loaded up all the stuff here. Awesome with a 1440k screen and gfx 1070 TI card.  Wow.

A formula car, single seater person but I have to say that the Can Am 71 and 66 are just captivating.

So glad to be back!

Thought that it was Brands. I've not been there since 2001 for the HSCC weekend.

Yes, I remember you. I wondered if you still had the Brabham. Good to see you still have it. I'm sure we'd all love to see some incar footage someday. You're doing what a lot of us just dream of doing.

Great to see you back expat. I occasionally wondered what happened to you. Last I remember was you having an expensive shunt with your BT-21 at Brands Hatch in the rain.

Great to hear from you all.  I have no footage from my own driving but it is exactly like you see in this footage going around the Brands grand prix circuit.   My car was originally built as many were at the time as a 1000 cc F3 "screamer" later converted to F 2 with a 1600 cc Lotus Twin Cam engine of about 185 hp.  Many other Brabham owners here in England have gone to historic F3.  I could convert my car back but it would not be economical to do so.  Besides the Twin Cam has a wider power band and more enjoyable to drive.

Great to see you back. I'd love to be but currently without a Windows machine in my life... has anyone made a version for my Chromebook yet?
