Toowoomba teen Will Brown has joined some of Supercars’ biggest names as the winner of the Mike Kable Young Gun Award.
Brown, 19, starred in his debut Dunlop Super2 season with Eggleston Motorsport, coming agonisingly close to a maiden win in Newcastle on Sunday.
The Young Gun Award, which was implemented in 1999, recognises an outstanding first-year driver in either the main or second-tier series under 30 years of age.
Voted on by the media, previous winners include Marcos Ambrose (2001), Mark Winterbottom (2003), James Courtney (2006), Chaz Mostert (2011) and Scott McLaughlin (2013).
Brown accepted the award, which comes with a $15,000 prize cheque, at tonight’s Supercars Gala in Sydney.
