WONDERFUL WILL - BROWN TAKES HISTORIC TCR WIN FOR HYUNDAI

Will Brown has secured a deserved victory in the third race of the inaugural TCR Australia Series round at Sydney Motorsport Park.

The HMO Customer Racing young gun fought off a number of challenges to secure his second win for the day and leave the Sydney venue with the championship lead.

The race was action-packed, with a number of great passing moves and the bump and grind that fans can expect to see at every TCR Australia event.

Alfa Romeo driver Dylan O’Keeffe finished second having led the first nine laps, only to be passed by Brown. The result added to his second place in today’s earlier race.

Hyundai driver Michael Almond made an incredible passing moves to take third place, ahead of fellow Hyundai driver Nathan Morcom, who was involved in three separate incidents that raised the eye brows of the stewards. Morcom was served three penalties totalling 60 seconds and placed him last of the classified finishers.

Aaron Cameron (Volkswagen) inherited fourth place after Morcom’s penalty, with James Moffat (Renault) recovering to fifth in a great display after his luckless start yesterday. 

The top 10 was rounded out by Jason Bright (Volkswagen), Chris Pither (Renault), Alex Rullo (Holden) and Alexandra Whitley (Volkswagen).

Brown (122) leads the championship standings by 12 points from O’Keeffe (110) with D’Alberto (99) in third.
