A Drama Filled Weekend for Brown at The Bend
Will Brown has had an unfortunate round at The Bend with two P13's and a DNF.
Race 20 – DNF
Will Brown started Race 20 from P8 and found himself on the outside of Turn 1 facing the opposite direction on the opening lap.
The first-corner clash was deemed a racing incident, though ultimately came from Jack Le Brocq who was squeezed and left with nowhere to go but into the rear bumper of Will, ending his race.
Race 21 – P13
Starting from P16, Will got away well and moved up two spots at the start to P14 before the end of the first sector.
Much like Race 20, there was drama on the opening lap with multiple cars rotating in the middle of the pack at Turn 6. Will narrowly avoided the clash and with some precision driving, squeezed through the other side and moved into P10.
The #9 pilot reported his rear tyres had started to go on lap 7, before stopping for fresh rears on lap 8.
Will was effectively P9 at the mid-way point, though with those behind with fresher rubber, he could only hold on for so long. Broc Feeney got up on the inside of the Coca-Cola Camaro on lap 16, and as they bang doors on the run to the final corner, Andre Heimgartner and James Courtney capitalised on the bump and run, and got by Will who ended up P13 at the end.
Race 22 – P13
Will moved inside the top ten from P13 on the grid, though had a moment on lap 5 which saw him drop back to the rear of the mid-field.
By the conclusion of the race, Will had worked his way back to P13 before receiving the checkered flag.
Ultimately, the troubled weekend sees Will drop to 4th place in the Drivers' Championship, 258 points behind teammate Brodie Kostecki.
