Brown Untouchable in Queensland Opener
Will Brown has finished on the podium in all three races in the SUPERCHEAP AUTO TCR Australia Series at Queensland Raceway.
Race 1 – P1
Will Brown led from start to finish in the opening race of the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series at Queensland Raceway, as he continues his dominant weekend.
Brown made the most of being the only driver on the front row, pushing his gap out to the best part of a second over the Honda of Tony D’Alberto in the opening stanza of the race, continuing to stretch his lead as the race progressed.
At the halfway point, Brown had a gap of over five seconds on the Honda of D’Alberto, who was beginning to fall into the clutches of Zac Soutar’s Audi in third.
The second half of the race settled into a rhythm after the frantic opening stages, as Brown continued to increase his margin.
Brown made the most of the conditions finishing with over ten seconds in hand on the rest of the field.
Race 2 – P3
Will Brown, having finished P1 in Race 1, was demoted to P10 on the grid for Race 2 by virtue of the reverse top ten grid. Brown made a demon of a start and had his sights on a podium finish by lap five.
By lap 15, the top three cars were covered by a second, as Brown began to put serious pressure on Aaron Cameron fir second, but was ultimately unable to make his way past the Peugeot, finishing in P3.
Race 3 – P1
MPC Team LIQUI MOLY’s Will Brown has capped off a brilliant weekend in the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series by claiming victory in the final race as chaos reigned behind.
It was an even start off the front row between Brown and Tony D’Alberto, though Aaron Cameron made a great start from fourth in the Team Valvoline GRM Peugeot, and jumped to the inside of D’Alberto, leaving the reigning champion on the high line into turn one.
Brown had control of the field when the green flag came out on lap six, and promptly began to drive off into the setting Queensland sun, as D’Alberto set about trying to minimise the damage his ten second penalty would inflict.
Brown had nearly six seconds in hand over Cameron when the Safety Car was called for the second time on lap eighteen after Kody Garland’s miserable weekend ended in retirement on the side of the track entering turn six, setting up the one lap dash.
