Official site of Erebus and Eggleston Motorsport V8 Supercars driver, Will Brown.
In 2018, Will is competing in the Virgin Australia V8 Supercar series for the 2017 Bathurst 1000 winning team, Erebus Motorsport. He is also driving in the Dunlop Super 2 Series for Eggleston Motorsport.
20-year-old Brown is one of only five drivers in Australian racing history to achieve two national circuit racing titles in the one year.
The early stages of his career involved karting at state and national levels in New South Wales and Queensland before strong success came in open wheeler categories, going on to become the Australian Formula 4 and Toyota 86 champion.
Hugely popular amongst both fans and teams alike due to the ever present smile and his down to earth approach, after an outstanding 2017 where Will was awarded The Mike Cable Award by his driving peers and The Peter Brock Medal by CAMS, in 2018 he is debuting in the main V8 Supercars game as a driver for the 2017 Bathurst 1000 winning team, Erebus Motorsport.
