Broc Feeney holds off Erebus duo to win in Perth
Generation next has arrived at Supercars with three youngsters filling the podium in the final race of the Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint.

Red Bull rising star Broc Feeney held on for his third career victory following a tense battle with the Erebus duo of Will Brown and Brodie Kostecki who finished second and third respectively.

It's the third win in four rounds, and second in four races for Feeney who replaced the great Jamie Whincup in the #88 Red Bull Camaro at the start of 2022.

The second placing for Brown capped off a huge day for the 24-year-old Toowoomba local, who claimed pole and a race win in today's earlier race.

For Kostecki, his third placing was his third podium of the weekend and ensured the 25-year old WA native walks away from his home round maintaining a 100-point Championship lead over Chaz Mostert who is the best of the Ford drivers in second after three rounds.

Defending Supercars Champion Shane van Gisbergen remains third ahead of Kostecki's Coca-Cola Racing teammate Brown who is now fourth in the standings.

The Coca-Cola Racing Team now holds a 185-point lead in the Teams' Championship over the Red Bull Camaro duo of Feeney and van Gisbergen.

The Penrite duo of David Reynolds and rookie Matt Payne are the best of the Ford teams, 459 points behind Brown and Kostecki.

In the final race of this year's annual trip across the Nullarbor that attracted a crowd of 34,052 fans, Feeney led from start to finish to claim his first ever win in Western Australia.

The result was the Camaros 8th win in nine starts since replacing the Hold Commodore at the start of 2023.

With three events under their belts, the new Gen3 Chevrolet Camaros and Ford Mustangs will be put to the test on one of the most technical circuits on the calendar, Symmons Plains Raceway in Tasmania from 19-21 May.

In 2022 van Gisbergen won all three races in Tasmania and the three-time Supercars' CHampion wil be hoping for similar form to close the gap on Kostecki when the NED Whisky Tasmania SuperSprint gets underway in just under three weeks' time.
