Brabham Family to Take Legal Actions Against Brabham Grand Prix

You should probably read this before you go all crazy about the name Brabham returning to Formula One racing. Although it surfaced to the media, earlier today, that a team with the name of Brabham Grand Prix has lodged an F1 entry for the 2010 season, the family of 3-time Formula One champion Jack Brabham dismissed all rumors regarding a potential link to that move.

In addition to that comment, Brabham Enterprises Limited also released a short statement earlier today, announcing that they will take legal advice on how to protect the name of Brabham following the recent turn of events.

Brabham Grand Prix has nothing to do with Jack Brabham or any other member of his family, as the outfit is currently ran by Formtech founder Franz Hilmer and technically managed by former Super Aguri employee Mark Preston.

Sir Jack Brabham and the Brabham family have expressed their surprise at the recent news reporting that an entry has been submitted for the 2010 FIA Formula One World Championship by Formtech with the intention of operating as Brabham Grand Prix Limited,” read the statement from Brabham Enterprises Limited.

The family would like to make it clear that they are in no way involved with Brabham Grand Prix Limited and received no consultation regarding the company's plans to resurrect their historic name in Formula One. The family is taking legal advice and will take necessary steps to protect their name, reputation and its goodwill,” added the release.
