Boost Mobile Racing powered by Erebus’ Will Brown has secured his first podium of 2022, claiming third in Race 25 at Sandown.
Starting from 7th on the grid, Will got a brilliant start and was quick down the inside on the way to turn 1, moving past Scott Pye and up to P6.
Brodie, who started from 10th, was caught up in a scuffle as the mid-field fought for track position, dropping four spots on the opening lap before settling into a rhythm.
He was the first to stop on lap 9, bumping into Mark Winterbottom on the run into pit lane as the #18 driver decided on a late pit option.
It was a quick stop by the crew, though with damage to the front bar and bonnet, it was going to be a long slog home for Brodie.
Will took his stop on lap 16 from second on the road, and with another fast stop for rears, was 4th by the time the field cleansed with 17 laps to go.
One of the fastest on track and on 4-lap fresher tyres, Will quickly closed the gap to David Reynolds in front. He didn’t muck around and got the move done at the last corner on lap 32 for the last spot on the podium.
Will secured his first podium of 2022 and his first podium at Sandown, meanwhile Brodie limped his Commodore home in P23.
At lights out on the second race, Will took off from P11 and Brodie from P20 after not getting a final run in qualifying.
There was early contact in the opening lap, though both Boost Mobile drivers avoided the carnage. Will held position, while Brodie made the most of it and moved up to P17.
The race was fairly processional with Brodie stopping on lap 10 for rear tyres, meanwhile Will held on until the end of lap 19 for his fresh rubber.
Will re-joined the race in traffic and right behind James Courtney; sitting on the tail of the #5 until the very end, finally getting by with 5 laps to go.
Next in line was Cam Waters, and with a speedy car Will closed the gap from 2.7-seconds to 0.6-seconds within three laps. Unable to get the move done though, Will finished just behind in P11.
Brodie made it as high as P14, six spots up from where he started, though dropped back P16 in the finals laps as he struggled to hold onto his worn tyres.
Collective points from all three races also sees Will claim fourth overall for the weekend. The team now prepare to head over the ditch with the Auckland SuperSprint, September 9-11.
