#38 Will Brown

This 18 year old young gun is one of the most talked about young talents in Australia and we are expecting big things from the two time National Champion in season 2017!

Will Brown joins Championship winning team Eggleston Motorsport in 2017 for his rookie season in the Supercars Dunlop Series. Given his tender age, Will hasn't been racing cars for very long but his impressive track record speaks for itself, becoming one of only five drivers in Australia to win two national titles in the same year (2016 Formula 4 and Toyota 86 champion). Will also narrowly missed claiming a third title as the runner up in the National Formula Ford title after missing the first round. Will Brown is a name to watch in 2017!

Wills Racing Success:

2016 Australian Formula 4 Champion

2016 Australian Toyota 86 Champion

2016 Australian Formula Ford Runner up

2015 Formula 4 Rookie of the Year

2015 3rd Place Australian Formula 4 Championship

#88 Paul Dumbrell

This experienced campaigner and current Red Bull Racing co-driver will shake up the Dunlop Series and aim for the top prize

At only 34 years of age, Paul Dumbrell has a list of driving achievements most drivers would only dream to have of.  Having finished runner up in the Development Series (now known as Dunlop Series) in 2001 and taking the crown in 2002 and 2014 with EMS, Dumbrell knows what it takes to be a champion,

Going on to race full time from 2003-2011 in the main V8 Supercar Series, Dumbrell retired from full time racing in 2011 to focus on his business ventures.

Widely judged as one of the fastest drivers around, Dumbrell was signed immediately by Red Bull Racing as enduro co-driver for 5 time champion Jamie Whincup, proving a wise choice after the pair won the Bathurst 1000 in 2012.

EMS is thriving on the opportunity to have this experience in the team and there is no doubt PD will be as keen to regain the top spot in 2017.
