Trent Brand/Jeremy Browne

mod IMG_8249 Trent Brand

One of the leading crews contesting the 2008 SA Rally Championship is Trent Brand and Jeremy Browne in a Subaru WRX STi.

Trent is a member of the Brand Family from the Coonawarra in the State’s South-East. The family has a long history in making superb wines and involvement in motorsport – in particular rallying.

After mechanical problems in 2007, Trent returns in 2008 with a new motor and engine management giving more power, improved brakes and suspension.

Trent achieved outstanding results in the 2004 Subaru RS Challenge, being one of few crews to successfully complete every round of the Australian Rally Championship. Special Stage times are usually in the top five. Last year the crew was leading Round One into the last special stage only to strike mechanical problems 2km from the finish!

Co-driver is Jeremy Browne, previously four times SA Champion co-driver and a very experienced pace note caller. As a driver in Historic Rallies, in a Lancia Fulvia, he has competed in many overseas events and won Targa Tasmania Classic outright in 2000.

Trent’s crew includes wife Trish, father Bill, brother Damien, sons Aden, Corey and Marcus and Simon.

Sponsors are S & J Automotive, Blue Haze Wines, CAPPA Motor Bodies, M.H. Monfries, KPA Industries, Gambier West Brake Service, U-POL and Parsons Tabo.
