Brown wins Larry Perkins Trophy in Camaro sweep of Melbourne

Will Brown, Broc Feeney and Nick Percat claim race wins in Supercars’ support races at the Australian Grand Prix.

24 March 2024

Triple Eight Race Engineering’s Will Brown has won the Larry Perkins Trophy and taken the championship lead following four sprint races at the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne, as Ford’s challenge came unstuck with some friendly fire across the event.

Brown and teammate Broc Feeney won three of the four races in Melbourne – two to Feeney and one to Brown – but Brown prevailed in the race for the Larry Perkins Trophy with a more consistent run across the weekend.

Nick Percat overcame the Triple Eight challenge in the fourth and final race of the weekend, taking victory for the first time with Matt Stone Racing.

The Chevrolet Camaro remained undefeated in 2024 with six wins from six races, as Ford entrants cost themselves the chance of victory with a series of incidents in Melbourne.

Matt Payne and Cameron Waters made contact at the final corner in the early stages of the third race of the weekend while battling for the lead, sending both cars into the fence.

Payne was leading in the fourth race when he was hit in the rear by Chaz Mostert, with both Mustangs falling down the order. Payne did score two podiums in the first two races, with Mostert third in the third race. Also scoring a podium was Mark Winterbottom with second in the second race.

Brown now leads the championship by 17 points from Feeney with Mostert, Percat and David Reynolds rounding out the top five.

The next event on the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship calendar is the ITM Taupō Super400 on April 19 to 21 – Supercars’ return to New Zealand.
