Erebus Motorsport’s Will Brown has secured his first win of the season with a spectacular as the lights went out under Safety Car.
Will got a great jump from 4th on the grid to sweep around Broc Feeney and take second right away.
Jordan didn’t get away so well but managed to hold 9th, while Jack Sipp started from pit lane with clutch dramas.
Will began to close in on Thomas Randle, as the Safety Car was deployed when one of the Super3 drivers became stuck in the gravel trap.
On the restart, Will pulled up alongside Randle for the best line into turn one, sweeping through to the lead when the lights went out.
He built a nice margin over Randle and made it to the checkered flag first, while teammate Jordan was unable to find a way past Jack Perkins and settled for 8th.
Jack raced well on debut, and also benefitted from the late Safety Car, moving up to P17 before the checkered flag.
Will Brown – #999 Super2
“It’s awesome to get the first win with the transition over to Image Racing, and with everyone at Erebus, it was nice to repay them with a win. With the teams having to relocate to New South Wales everyone has put in so much effort, so it’s great to reward them with a win and that was pretty exciting.
“It was a good tussle with Brodie (Kostecki) at the start, we both generally had good pace, but Brodie ran into some trouble early on and I noticed that I was closing in on Randle. When the Safety Car came out, I thought it was our chance and so I took the opportunity.”
Jordan Boys – #49 Super2
“We didn’t have a great qualifying and we missed the setup a little bit. I had an average start after bogging down a little and lost a position but was able to get that back on the first lap.
“From there I was stuck behind Jack Perkins and while I think we had more pace than him in the race I just couldn’t get by him. We’ll make some changes overnight and hope to find a little more pace in qualifying and we should be good in the races.”
Jack Sipp – #66 Super3
“Due to some clutch dramas we’ve been chasing over the weekend, we made the decision to start from pit lane, and that put us on the back foot. From there I just wanted to get through the race without any dramas and continue to learn these cars.
“The Safety Car halfway allowed us to race with some other cars which was good experience for me. We’ll have a look at the data overnight and hopefully we can tune the car up a bit more and get on top of the clutch drama and we should have a good day.”
