Will Brown secures first victory ahead of Raging Bulls

The rookie Will Brown is in career-best form, taking his first race win today in Sydney ahead of seven-time champion Jamie Whincup and championship leader Shane van Gisbergen who clashed horns in the closing laps.

The 23-year-old’s win was also Erebus Motorsport’s first victory since Darwin 2020. He also became the second first-time winner of 2021 following Andre Heimgartner’s win in Tailem Bend.

The second race of the day wrapped with Will Brown leading ahead of the Red Bull duo, the two cars catching Brown with only five laps to go but instead of passing the youngster, they took to racing and rubbing doors between the teammates, which is sure to make one hell of a debrief post-race.

In the post-race press conference, Jamie Whincup made it clear that with only a few races left of his career, he wasn’t giving an inch and is chasing results for the rest of the races for 2021.

Shane van Gisbergen still has an impressive lead over the championship and is looking forward with only three more races left in the year his focus seems to be on maintaining great results and keeping the car straight.

This was clearly on show earlier in the day in the first race when Van Gisbergen took third position from Chaz Mostert by a bumper length in the closing seconds after a Qualifying penalty had the kiwi further back in the gird.
