That Will Brown finished the 2019 Super2 season 12th in the points was a shock to the entire category.
Such is his undoubted talent that Brown already has a main game deal in place for next year with Penrite Racing, for whom he has raced with in the PIRTEK Enduro Cup since 2018.
The Queenslander has shown excellent pace at the top level in those outings, and was rewarded with a solo podium in the Sandown co-driver sprint race last November.
Brown’s star had long been on the rise by that point.
In 2016 he achieved the rare feat of winning a pair of Australian national titles in the same year, claiming the Formula 4 and Toyota 86 Racing Series crowns.
From there, he progressed to the Dunlop Super2 Series stage with Eggleston Motorsport, taking ninth in the points even after a mechanical failure cruelly denied him a maiden race win at Newcastle.
Brown picked up the coveted 2017 Mike Kable Young Gun Award and rose to sixth in the ’18 standings before finally snatching his breakthrough victory last year at Perth.
That was just about the only highlight though, as he and Eggleston Motorsport battled to extract the best from their VF Commodore.
For 2020, Brown links with Erebus Motorsport-affiliated Image Racing and shapes as a leading championship contender – a prize that comes with a $400,000 carrot.
Come Supercars endurance season, Brown will co-drive with 2017 Bathurst winner David Reynolds.
