Brown reflects on up-and-down qualifying

THERE was an intense post-qualifying debrief in Triple Eight’s Albert Park tent after the team’s worst sessions of the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship.

Granted there were no disasters, with Broc Feeney and Will Brown qualifying fourth and sixth for Race 3 of the Melbourne SuperSprint, and sixth and ninth for the Sunday finale.

But that was still quite the shock to the system given Triple Eight’s early dominance whereby it had at least one car on the front row for each of the season’s first four races – and went on to win all four.

Championship leader Brown gave his version of events, observing a tale of two halves in this morning’s double qualifying.

“I think the first session in quali we were pretty strong, we both felt like we could have been on the front row and probably didn’t maximise it,” he admitted to V8 Sleuth.

“So I think it was sixth and fourth for us, but we should be able to race from there.

“The second one was a hard one, I’m not sure what it was, I just felt like I didn’t have it in the second one compared to the first one.

“It was quite amazing to see the difference between the two sessions. I think the second one I did the best for what I had, but the first one I reckon I could have been on the front row.”

Brown leads the standings by 18 points from Feeney, ahead of this afternoon’s 14-lapper which is scheduled to start at 5:40pm AEDT with Matt Payne on pole.

“I think it will be good racing this arvo: it’s 14 laps, everyone is going to want to get up there quickly. It’s going to be on,” said Brown.
