Matt and Geoff Brabham win at Indianapolis
Father and son duo Matt and Geoff Brabham have both taken victories at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as part of the Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational.
Matt Brabham won on Saturday after dicing with former IndyCar racer Max Papis to win the Indy Legends Charity Pro-Am event.
Brabham shared a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster with Michael Donohue, qualifying on pole before jumping in the car midway through the 45 minute feature event.
He and Papis, driving a 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350, then battled it out for the win, with Brabham taking the flag by 2.3s.
“The race to the end with Max was awesome. It was a big honour to race against him like that, and then to come away with a victory was even sweeter,” said Brabham.
Geoff Brabham didn’t turn a lap after the car he was set to drive suffered a suspension failure while Jody O’Donnell was behind the wheel.
The 10-time Indy 500 starter then went on to win the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association Group 2 feature race on Sunday in a Brabham BT35.
