Brabham started karting at the age of seven, being raised in a family that bled motorsport. His grandfather and two uncles had raced in Formula One, while his father was prominent in Australian motorsport. In 2010, aged just 16, Brabham entered the Australian Formula Ford Championship, taking a victory in a state race before taking on the national championship.
After two years in Formula Ford, Brabham moved to the US, in order to compete in the USF 2000 Championship. Four wins gave him the "Rookie of the Year" award, and saw him promoted to the Pro Mazda Series, starting his relationship with Andretti Autosport. Another successful season saw him take another "Rookie of the Year" title, as well as the championship with 13 wins.
A move to Indy Lights followed, with Andretti still supporting the American-Aussie. A single victory and fourth place in the championship were the result of Brabham's work, before the Formula E Championship drew him in.
Formula E HistoryEdit
Brabham was named as an Andretti Autosport driver a few days before the 2014 Putrajaya ePrix, replacing Charles Pic, whom was absent with F1 commitments. A quiet début saw him claim thirteenth, while a retirement in Punta del Este meant he failed to score in his first two races. Brabham missed the following two ePrix due to other commitments, ultimately replaced by Scott Speed, after a one-off drive for Marco Andretti.
