It weighs just over a ton

Brabham, a name long associated with racing, has just revealed its new supercar, the BT62. And from the looks of it, it's pretty typical modern supercar design.

Everything is in carbon fiber, and the seats are incredibly close together. Ah

Famed Brabham name poised for return to F1?

A recent report wonders aloud whether the Brabham name is close to a return to Formula One, with family scion David telling a Brazilian outlet "yes, there is the possibility to bring the team back (to F1)."
