Will Brown and Broc Feeney are both "hungrier than ever" to win the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship after near-misses last season.
Triple Eight teammates Will Brown and Broc Feeney are both “hungrier than ever” to win the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship after near-misses last season.
Red Bull Ampol Racing’s Feeney/Brown pairing forms one of the most anticipated storylines heading into the new season.
Brown arrives in the place of Shane van Gisbergen, having departed Erebus Motorsport in a deal announced midway through 2023.
Both Brown and Feeney fought for the 2023 title before the crown ultimately went the way of Brodie Kostecki, who won six races and claimed 10 pole positions.
Brown led the standings before an untimely run of outs at The Bend began a slide to fifth, while Feeney’s campaign was undone by a mechanical issue in Bathurst.
Having seen the title go begging, Brown says he and his new teammate are both determined to right through wrongs of 2023.
“Both of us are working towards getting that championship, that’s for sure,” the Queenslander told Supercars.com.
“We both won multiple races last year and were both in the hunt until the last few rounds, which we were both disappointed about.
“We’re hungrier than ever, I’m hungrier than ever to clinch a title or a Bathurst. It’ll be an awesome year.”
Brown and Feeney, with a combined age of 46, form the youngest line-up on the 2024 grid.
The duo go beyond Supercars, with Feeney’s road to the main game featuring a stint in Toyota 86 — which came in Brown’s old car.
Feeney is now heading into season No. 3 with Triple Eight, and already boasts wins at the Sandown 500 win and Adelaide 500.
“It’s been a cool journey for us, we’ve known each other since we were quite young,” Brown said of Feeney.
“It's quite funny, he bought my Toyota 86 off me, we both went down that pathway.
“We both fought for the title last year and were rivals, but coming to the workshop with him for the first time, it was cool to see the way he works.
“He also likes having a lot of fun, which is what I like to do! I think we’ll have a fantastic time as teammates.”
Brown and Feeney will test their new cars on Monday February 5 ahead of the season-opening Thrifty Bathurst 500 on February 23-25.
