The ‘cherry on top’ for Brown at Triple Eight

WHEN Will Brown talks about the opportunities opened up by his high-profile off-season switch, he’s talking more than just Supercars.

Don’t be mistaken, prolonged Supercars success – i.e. championships – is very much at the heart of Brown’s move from Erebus Motorsport to Triple Eight Race Engineering.

But beyond that, there’s a key attraction that comes with being a Red Bull-affiliated athlete.

It’s a factor which was the icing on the cake for Brown.

“They do so much around the world,” the 25-year-old told V8 Sleuth of Red Bull, a long-time co-naming rights sponsor of Triple Eight’s Supercars efforts.

“I can see that there’s other drivers that have had opportunities due to being with Red Bull.

“For me, hopefully I can add in a bit of flying with Red Bull; they run an awesome program overseas in Austria there and they have also got the athlete camp.

“I can just do so much with the other athletes as well, like (pilot) Matt Hall.

“That’s like a cherry on top, really.

“But ultimately it does come back to not only Red Bull but Triple Eight’s history over the years.”

Triple Eight has already leaned into the aerospace crossover with Brown, with its 2024 Gen3 Camaro livery to be launched on the runway of his hometown, Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport

Brown yesterday tested a Mercedes-AMG GT3 at The Bend, ahead of him joining forces with Broc Feeney and Mikael Grenier in an all-Pro Triple Eight entry at next month’s Bathurst 12 Hour.
