Among the announcements made at Sebring International Raceway this weekend was one where Matthew Brabham was awarded the 20th Gorsline Scholarship by John Gorsline.
Brabham, 20, now lives in Indianapolis after being born in Florida and growing up in Australia. He’s grandson of Sir Jack Brabham and son of four-time IMSA GTP champion Geoff Brabham, so has a distinct racing lineage. He will race in Indy Lights this year with Andretti Autosport.
The Gorsline Scholarship is presented by Gorsline Company, of Rochester, N.Y., a high-risk motorsports insurance organization. It recognizes aspiring drivers by providing programs with tools to develop their careers.
“At such a young age, Matthew is already an accomplished racer,” said Gorsline of the 2013 Pro Mazda and 2012 USF2000 champion.
Added Brabham, “I’m absolutely honored and it really means a lot to me, for sure.”
Brabham beat out two other young drivers, Sean Rayhall and Madison Snow, who both race sports cars and were also considered.
