Jack Le Brocq’s Thrifty Newcastle 500 start will help him into a very exclusive group in ATCC/Supercars history.

Le Brocq will make his Chevrolet Camaro debut at this weekend’s event, the first of the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship.

It sees Le Brocq race a fifth different brand since his 2015 debut, having raced Mercedes-AMGs, Nissans, Fords and Holdens.

He joins Kevin Bartlett, Ian Geoghegan, Bob Morris, Bob Holden and Jim Richards in starting championship races in five different makes of car.

Bartlett raced in six different cars — Chevrolet, Mitsubishi, Morris, Alfa Romeo, Holden and Ford.

Richards famously won two championships each in BMWs and Nissans, and also won the 2002 Great Race in a Commodore.

Shane van Gisbergen could also become just the sixth driver to win a race for three different makes.

"Pretty cool to be only days away from becoming 1 of [6] drivers in the history of the ATCC/Supercars Championship to make a championship start in 5 different makes,” Le Brocq posted to social media.

"Plenty of great memories made with some amazing people along the way!

"Looking forward to making plenty more throughout 2023 with the @mattstoneracing team.”

Le Brocq made his debut in the 2015 enduros aboard an Erebus Motorsport Mercedes-AMG.

He later made enduro starts in Kelly Racing Nissans before shifting full-time to Holden squad Tekno Autosports.

A shift to Tickford Racing brought about Le Brocq’s maiden victory at Sydney Motorsport Park in 2020.

He moved to MSR and back to Holden in 2022, with the team shifting to Camaros for the Gen3 era.

Le Brocq was also a Super2 title contender for Tickford (Ford) and MW Motorsport (Nissan) before his main game arrival.

Cars will hit the track at the Thrifty Newcastle 500 for three practice sessions on Friday.

Tickets are on sale on Supercars.com and Ticketek.com.
