BROWN CHARGES TO PHILLIP ISLAND WIN - TITLE IN BALANCE

Cars Galore Formula Ford driver Will Brown has claimed pole position and Race 1 victory from a 24 car field, during the final round of the 2016 Australian Formula Ford championships at Phillip Island.

The win now puts Will within striking distance of claiming the Formula Ford championship, over nearest rival Leanne Tannder, who finished outside the podium.

If Brown manages to win the round this weekend at Australia's fastest race track, he will have claimed the 2016 championships in both the Australian Formula 4 and the Australian Formula Ford series.

18 year old Brown wrapped up the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 championship 2 weeks ago on the streets of Surfers Paradise.
