Triple Eight Race Engineering announce Repco Bathurst 12 Hour line-up

New recruit Will Brown is set to make his Triple Eight Race Engineering at the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour in a Mercedes-AMG GT3 a week before he makes his first Supercars start for the title winning squad.

Brown will be joined by new teammate Broc Feeney and Mercedes-AMG factory ace Mikael Grenier in an entry backed by minor Triple Eight Race Engineering sponsor National Storage.

Having visited Triple Eight’s Banyo workshop this week, Brown is ready to work with the squad before the opening round of the Supercars season.

“It’s been great here at Triple Eight so far,” said Brown.

“It’s obviously a massive change for me this year moving teams, and now doing the Bathurst 12 Hour, it’s a lot to take in very early in the year.

“It’s not my first time at the 12 Hour, but it’s going to be my first race with Triple Eight.

“It allows myself to work closely with the team before we get to the first Supercars event the weekend after, so even though we’re going there to try and win the 12 Hour, it’s a great way for me to familiarise myself with the entire team.

“It’s great to have Broc as my new team-mate. I’ve known Broc for years; I knew him when he was racing Toyota 86, he actually bought my car off me, and it’s great being able to work with him.

“It’s funny though, you’ve come from being competitors last year and now we’re team-mates. We get along great and hopefully we have a lot of fun racing.

“Broc has done a lot of miles in these GT cars; we’ve seen what he’s done in Asia which is really cool. I haven’t done as much so I’m definitely going to be looking at his footage and data, but we have a test day coming up so it will be great to learn from him and the team then.”

The second entry to be fielded by Triple Eight will be spearheaded by Jamie Whincup, Prince Jefri Ibrahim and Australian GT ace Jordan Love.

A strong field is building ahead of the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour on February 16-18.
