UPDATE: WILL Brown will now be on the grid for next month’s Dunlop Super2 Series round at Bathurst.

Following a story on v8sleuth.com.au this afternoon, Brown, who will co-drive the #9 Penrite Erebus Commodore with David Reynolds in the main race, has now been confirmed as competing in the third round of the development series category.

Brown currently sits second in Super2 points to series leader Thomas Randle after two rounds, having finished third overall in the season opener in Adelaide and second overall in Sydney.

The Toowoomba-based racer, who won last year’s TCR Australia Series crown, has competed in the Super2 category since 2017. He drove for Eggleston Motorsport in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and joined Image Racing with the backing of Erebus Motorsport this year.

Image boss Terry Wyhoon confirmed to us earlier today that his team would run a single entry for Jordan Boys, however the situation changed after the publication of the story and Brown will be able to take his place in the team’s #999 Commodore.

“Things can change very quickly in motorsport and today most certainly was the case,” Wyhoon told v8sleuth.com.au tonight.

“When I spoke with you today we were not running Will’s car, but things changed very quickly after, so we’re working to prepare both cars now for the Bathurst round.”

Both Brown and Boys will be racing in the main Bathurst 1000 race, the latter making his Bathurst 1000 debut co-driving with Todd Hazelwood in the #14 Brad Jones Racing Commodore on the same weekend. 

The Bathurst Super2/Super3 round has been ‘on, off, on’ in recent weeks with a final entry list expected to be released soon.

The round format will consist of a 20 minute qualifying session and 100-kilometre race on Friday October 16 with another qualifying and race of the same duration on Saturday October 17.
