Jack Le Brocq will be looking to build on a solid 2020, which featured a maiden win in Sydney and a podium at Tailem Bend.
A return to Tickford Racing couldn’t come soon enough for Le Brocq, and he made it count with the Sydney Motorsport Park breakthrough.
The 2016 Dunlop Super2 Series runner-up was solid in his first top-tier campaign with Tekno, emerging on top of a five-way squabble for rookie of the year honours in ’18.
Second time around at the single-car Holden outfit didn’t prove so fruitful.
Le Brocq endured uncertainty around his seat at times during the season and had to patiently negotiate an uncompetitive Commodore that not once cracked the top 10 in qualifying or race trim.
2020 shaped up better, with the Melburnian stepping into the #55 Supercheap Auto Mustang vacated by Chaz Mostert.
Le Brocq’s previous experience in the Tickford organisation came in that 2016 runner-up effort, when he claimed seven Super2 wins from 16 starts.
Either side of that season were a pair of third-place finishes in the development series, as he established himself as a consistent title contender.
Le Brocq’s path to Supercars started in karting and Formula Vee; 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.
He 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.
Erebus provided a maiden opportunity to grace the Supercars grid in ’15, with future PIRTEK Enduro Cup opportunities then coming at Tickford with Cameron Waters and Kelly Racing with Todd Kelly.
It was with Waters that he pinched fourth at Bathurst, a placing that remained his best to date in any Supercars race ahead of 2020.
His life changed when he crossed the line in Sydney, with Le Brocq able to call himself a Supercars race winner.
