Will Brown, Chelsea Angelo and Broc Feeney are set to feature in a talent rich driver line up for the upcoming Hyundai Excel Enduro event at Queensland Raceway on September 14/15.
The 170km race will also feature Jake Camilleri, Declan Fraser and Jaylyn Robotham, who will share the driving duties in the five-strong entry from category stalwarts BPRO.
Heading the entry is Brown, the current runaway leader in the TCR Australia Series, who this season has also tasted success in the Dunlop Super 2 Series, with the Toowoomba based driver to share driving duties with Darren Whittington.
The event will also somewhat be a warmup run for Brown’s tilt at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, where he will again join forces with Anton de Pasquale at Penrite Racing.
“I can’t wait to jump into the Excel for the Enduro, the racing really looks like a lot of fun,” said Brown.
“As I’ve always said, I will drive anything I can, so when the opportunity came up, I said yes right away.
“The guys at BPRO do a great job, and I can’t wait for it to kick off!”
Angelo meanwhile has had recent front-wheel-drive race experience aboard a TCR Holden Astra, which will put her in good stead lining up with Ashley Izod, making the all-female combination one to watch.
Another young gun pairing set for a strong showing will be the duo of Super 3 title challenger Feeney, who will be joined by Toyota 86 Racing Series front runner Declan Fraser.
BPRO team principal Brett Parrish will be out to show the value of experience, when he teams with Victorian Jaylyn Robotham, who needs no introduction to Hyundai Excel racing, although his attention in 2019 has turned to a successful entry into the TA2 Asia Series.
Rounding out the strong entry for the squad is newcomer to the class Matt Wells, who will pair with the highly experienced Jake Camilleri, who has much recent success driving a variety of MARC Cars in international long-distance races.
The weekend format for the Track Attack Hyundai Excel Series will see a regular single-driver championship event format on Saturday, followed by the two-driver main event on Sunday.
