Jack Le Brocq emerged on top from a strong crop of five young drivers to claim rookie of the year honours in the 2018 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
The Tekno Autosports driver grabbed 19th in the championship and set a marker early, finishing 10th and fifth in the third event at Symmons Plains.
He stays with the single-car Holden outfit in 2019, aiming to build on that platform.
Le Brocq's path to Supercars started in karting and Formula Vee, and he then won the Australian Formula Ford Championship in 2012.
A member of the FIA Institute’s Young Driver Academy that year, Le Brocq also caught the attention of Supercars team owner Betty Klimenko.
Le Brocq joined the Erebus Academy in 2013, racing in Formula 3 and the Australian GT Championship before finishing third in the Bathurst 12 Hour in ’14 with Will Davison and Greg Crick.
He entered the Dunlop Super2 Series in 2014 with Image Racing and finished 13th, switching to MW Motorsport the following season to grab six podiums and third in the points.
In 2015, Le Brocq made his PIRTEK Enduro Cup debut with Erebus, before linking with Prodrive Racing Australia for Super2 and the enduros one year later.
With Prodrive and then back with MW Motorsport in 2017, Le Brocq won 10 Super2 races across two seasons, finishing second and then third in the championship.
Le Brocq also added to his experience through co-drives with Cameron Waters, the pair finishing fourth at Bathurst in 2016, and Todd Kelly.
