David Brabham would welcome return to GT racing

Brabham would welcome GT returnSportscar veteran David Brabham says that a drive in GT racing this year is just as appealing as remaining in the prototype ranks.

The Le Mans 24 Hours winner raced a HPD for privateer team JRM in the World Endurance Championship last year with Peter Dumbreck and Karun Chandhok.

Having yet to secure a deal for the 2013 season, the Australian said he was evaluating opportunities in the WEC and in North America, and that a top GT drive would also appeal to him.

"I have no plans at the moment, but I'm looking around for opportunities," he said on the AUTOSPORT Stage with KX at AUTOSPORT International on Thursday.

"Whether it's in US or the WEC I don't mind. From a driving point of view I have lots left in me and I know what I can do in terms of contributing to a team.

"It's tough out there, especially in sportscars, and I'd be happy doing a GT programme. I'll drive anything."

When questioned about the possibility of driving new Bentley Continental GT3, which is being displayed on the AUTOSPORT Stage with KX, Brabham said: "It's a lovely-looking bit of kit.

"I've always had a soft spot for Bentley and had a nice time when I drove the LMP car for them at Le Mans in 2003."
