Sam Brabham, the son of accomplished sports car racer and ex Formula One driver David Brabham, is set to test with Carlin’s Formula 3 squad at Donington.

Young Brabham will continue to run in the British Formula Ford championship although the Carlin try-out is seen as a significant toe-in-the-water exercise.

Eponymous team owner Trevor Carlin managed the team, Bowman Racing, David Brabham steered to the 1989 British F3 title, the same year he also captured the Macau GP.

The 19-year-old Brabham is excited about the prospect of turning laps in an F3 machine at the famous Midlands circuit.

The teenager’s career is starting to blossom at a time his cousin, Matthew Brabham, son of the eldest of Sir Jack Brabham’s sons Geoff, has graduated to Indy Lights in the US. comment policy reserves the right to deny any post that is abusive or offtopic.
