Jack Le Brocq’s Tekno Autosports Holden will don a black-and-orange look for four of the remaining five events of the season after securing a new major backer.

The Gold Coast-based team has this morning revealed a partnership with Truck Assist, Australia’s leading truck roadside assistance and online insurance provider.

Tekno has been without a full-time primary sponsor this year, with a number of brands – including Tekno’s own road car performance arm – run on the ZB.

The Truck Assist backing includes the three PIRTEK Enduro Cup events at Sandown, Bathurst and the Gold Coast, as well as the season finale in Newcastle.

Le Brocq heads to Sandown leading the five-strong group of rookies in the championship, placed 18th with five top 10 race finishes.

The 26-year-old will pair with team owner Jonathon Webb for the endurance races, with both drivers set to get behind the wheel at Queensland Raceway tomorrow for testing.

“It’s awesome to be partnering Truck Assist for these important events and to be able to bring a new sponsor to the sport,” Le Brocq said.

“Our Truck Assist Commodore looks fantastic in orange-and-black, and Jonathon and I are looking forward to continuing our progress toward the front of the field.”

The Truck Assist deal returns Tekno to orange and black – colours it last used during its Bathurst 1000-winning 2016 season.

Truck Assist will promote its heavy vehicle roadside assistance and online truck insurance capabilities around the Supercar program, including trackside activations.

“Truck Assist is excited to partner with Jack Le Brocq and Tekno Autosports for these premier Supercar events,” said Alan Hasted, Truck Assist general manager.

“Jack’s a major talent with a big future in the sport. He’s someone we’re proud to throw our support behind and to have as an ambassador for our business. There’s a genuine synergy there,

“Tekno Autosports has long punched above its weight in Supercar racing. They’re a small tight-knit team – perfect for us to partner and grow with. Together we’ve got some exciting things planned along the way.”
