VIDEO: Brown tackles speedway

SUPERCARS star Will Brown’s dabble into speedway has been captured in a video production entitled Mindset.

As previously reported by V8 Sleuth, Brown headed to Eastern Creek Speedway in May for a test with Dyson Motorsport.

“I wanted to see what the hype was about – how hard they are to drive and the horsepower,” he said.

“There’s probably no discipline like sprintcars and I thought ‘I’ve got to give it a go, don’t I?’

“Over the last couple of years, even though he’s a competitor of mine, I’ve idolised SVG (Shane van Gisbergen) and what he’s been doing, and what he’s capable of doing.

“In drift cars, in NASCAR, in rally cars – everything. Jumping between different disciplines and wanting to be up the front in all of them.

“So, that’s the thing, I just thought ‘a sprintcar, something different, really cool piece of equipment; can I jump in it and be able to do a good job in it?’”

The test may lead to more, according to Mark Lancaster of Lancaster GMSV, who was pivotal in setting up the Dyson Motorsport opportunity for Brown.

“After a great test, we decided that we may have a go at running some events during the 2023/2024 sprintcar season, with dates yet to be locked in,” said Lancaster.

Brown will tackle next week’s Repco Bathurst 1000 with Erebus Motorsport co-driver Jack Perkins.
