Brawn GP chief faces speeding ban
Tuesday 04 August 2009
The head of Brawn GP could be banned from driving after he was charged with speeding, a court confirmed today.
Ross Brawn is accused of doing 100mph in his Mercedes on the 70mph limit A30 at Sourton, near Okehampton, Devon, on May 30.
The 54-year-old, from Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, did not appear at Plymouth Magistrates' Court yesterday as he is abroad preparing for the team's next races in Spain and Belgium.
No plea was entered to the charge.
Brawn's legal team was granted an adjournment in the case which will now be heard on Friday, September 4.
Brawn is one of the highest profile bosses in motor racing and has worked in the sport for more than 30 years.
He is the former team principal at Honda and worked as technical director at Benetton and Ferrari.
Brawn GP currently leads the constructors' championship and Jenson Button leads the drivers' championship.
