Jérôme Brarda

Jérôme Brarda started his career in Europe in race cars, in the classic single-seater school, Formula 3, then moved to endurance races such as Le Mans.

After a successful tryout in Offshore Powerboat racing in 1986, Jérôme crossed the Atlantic in 1990 to join the famous Team USA owned by Miami Vice star Don Johnson. Jérôme competed intensively alongside Don in the Superboat class, setting world records.

Jérôme did not abandon car racing, though. In 1993 he entered a seven year race programme with Porsche in the GT Class, winning major Endurance Grand Prix worldwide.

In 2007 he returned to offshore powerboat racing in the US at the highest level, helming a MTI44 Supercat. Jérôme returned to the World Offshore Championship in 2008, becoming Vice-World Champion in 2017. He has developed a successful media and TV presence as host for several specialised international channels.
