Erebus Motorsport Super2 driver Will Brown returns to the Supercars All Stars Eseries Championship this week, ready to make an assault on the grand finale at Australia’s iconic Bathurst and Oran Park.
Brown, the 2019 TCR Champion had a shot at the series in Round Two, when the Supercars raced four races at Silverstone and Barcelona. He was relatively new to iRacing then, but still managed best results of fourth and sixth.
After a big break, he is keen to give the final round a red-hot go.
“I was pretty excited when I heard I was going to be able to compete again in the series,” Brown said.
“I haven’t been in the series since filling in for Dave in round two, which I really enjoyed.
“It’s been a while, so I’m really looking forward to coming back for the finale.”
Brown will be the standout on track, as the #999 Commodore trades its usual look for something a bit brighter.
Pedders have jumped onboard as primary sponsor for this week’s round of racing, while long-time partners CRC Industries also feature prominently.
Brown is excited to line up in the red and white Holden, also sponsored by Metamark, Coca-Cola, Revolution Racegear, DBA, Red Ink and Natiive.
“I love the livery. It looks awesome! It’s great to have brands like Pedders and CRC on the car.
“They are so well known, not just in Australia, but the automotive industry, so to have them on board is awesome.”
The field heads to Bathurst and Oran Park for the final round.
“Obviously I’m stoked to be having a crack at the mountain, but I’m just as excited to go to Oran Park,” Brown said.
“I wasn’t racing when Oran Park was around, but I know how iconic it is and everyone always talks about how epic the track was to race, so for me to get the opportunity to do that virtually is really cool.
“I did race virtually at Bathurst in the TCR series last week, so I’ve had a lot of practice now. I have spent time every day to get in as much practice as I can with the team at Erebus.”
Joining Brown for the final round in the Eseries are Penrite Racing’s David Reynolds and Anton De Pasquale, plus co-driver Brodie Kostecki.
Whilst Reynolds struggled early on, he has been the series most improved driver. He narrowly missed out on a podium last round at Michigan and will be gunning for a trophy on Wednesday night.
For De Pasquale, whilst he is out of contention to win the series, he is in a very real battle for outright third place with Cam Waters, with nine points the difference.
Kostecki, whose car will also feature Pedders and Erebus as well as Yuasa Batteries branding, joins the field for a second time at Bathurst and will be looking to secure another podium.
Qualifying will be broadcast exclusively on Fox Sports Wednesday night at 6pm AEST, with the races broadcast live from 7pm on Fox Sports, Kayo, 10 Play, Sky Sports (NZ) and Facebook.
