Brabham BT62

The 2018 Adelaide Motorsport Festival will feature a drag race between three different performance cars and an aeroplane.

Dubbed the ‘Winged Warriors’ the competition will see a Porsche 911 GT2 RS take on a Brabham BT62, a 1989 Leyton House F1 car, and Matt Hall’s Red Bull Air Race plane.

All four vehicles will take a standing start before the 400 metre race, with Jim Richards set to drive the Porsche, David Brabham in the car that bares his name, and Ivan Capelli aboard the Leyton House.

The quartet will compete in three races on the Sunday in Victoria Park.

Along with the drag races, the Brabham BT62 is also set to conduct demonstration laps during the event, while Hall will perform two aerobatic displays over the weekend.

The Adelaide Motorsport Festival runs from December 1-2.
