On the back of his karting form as a youngster, Brown was signed by AGI Sport to race in the inaugural FIA Formula 4 Australia Championship and claimed victory in the first ever race. A consistent spread of wins and podiums throughout the series saw him finish P3 overall and crowned 2015 Rookie of the Year after his impressive debut. With championship wins in both the Australian Formula 4 and the Australian Toyota Racing Series in 2016, Brown became 1 of only 5 drivers in Australian motorsport history to achieve 2 national racing titles in one year. In 2017, Brown joined Eggleston Motorsport to race in the Supercars Feeder Series, Dunlop Super2. After ending the driver’s championship in P9 in his rookie year, Brown was awarded the Mike Kable Young Gun Award and The Peter Brock Medal by the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS) for his outstanding year in racing. In 2018, Brown was named as a Supercars Endurance Cup co-driver, partnering Anton de Pasquale with Erebus Motorsport, where he immediately showed his elite driving ability throughout the 3 race series. He continued to make solid progress in his Dunlop Super2 Series landing P6 in the 2018 Driver’s Championship with Eggleston Motorsport.
2019 was the breakout year of Will's career, stepping up to the challenge of competing in the inaugural TCR Australia Series for HMO Customer Racing. Driving a Hyundai i30 N TCR Car, Brown won the championship with one round to spare against many of Australia’s most awarded and seasoned professional drivers. He continued to race with Eggleston Motorsport in the 2019 Dunlop Super 2 Series, gaining his first breakthrough win in Perth. Again partnering with Anton de Pasquale at Erebus Motorsport in the Supercars championship, Brown’s talent was on show finishing P2 behind Craig Lowndes and ahead of Garth Tander in the Co-Driver Race, taking his first podium in the series.
Brown began 2020 with a multi year signing with Penrite Racing, that would see him compete in the Virgin Australia Supercars series as a co-driver to David Reynolds in 2020, before becoming a full time driver for the team from 2021. Brown was also named as an official Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing Junior Driver, which would see Brown compete on a global stage in selected World TCR events before COVID intervened. The Supercars Enduro Cup was reduced to a single race at Bathurst this year, where Brown & Reynolds finished P15 due to engine issues. With limited running of the Super2 Series Brown picked up two wins and four podiums from only seven races and finished P2 overall.
In 2021, Will's star continued to rise, and he delivered on the biggest stage when he denied Jamie Whincup and Shane van Gisbergen in a Sydney thriller to win his first race. He later scored provisional pole at Mount Panorama, and although the race didn't go to plan, Brown proved to all that he's no slouch. Will finished eighth overall in his maiden full-time season in 2021, and became the latest Supercars race winner.
