Jack Le Brocq links up with Erebus for Bathurst 12 Hour
Erebus to help M-Motorsport run Mercedes for 12 Hour
Le Brocq to race with Justin McMillan, Glen Wood and Garth Walden
Jack Le Brocq and Erebus Motorsport will link up in an M-Motorsport Mercedes GT3 entry for the Bathurst 12 Hour.
Le Brocq, who has signed for Erebus in place of Triple Eight-bound Will Brown, will share a Pro-Am entry with Justin McMillan, Glen Wood and Garth Walden.
Le Brocq is no stranger to McMillan and Wood; Wood was Le Brocq's number one mechanic in his 2012 Formula Ford title-winning season, while Le Brocq helped develop M-Motorsport's Camaro in 2015.
Brown will get his own early start with new team Triple Eight at the 12 Hour, alongside new teammate Broc Feeney.
"I’m super excited to be getting the band back together and attacking the Mountain in a current spec Mercedes GT3," Le Brocq said.
"I obviously spent some time in the SLS back in ‘13-’14 under the Erebus banner and to be back with Justin and Glen who I’ve shared some incredibly memorable times with is a huge honour.
“It’s also a great opportunity to get some early miles in before my 2024 Supercars campaign with Erebus gets underway at the Bathurst 500.”
Erebus will support M-Motorsport, which is owned by McMillan, who is embarking on his 10th attempt at winning the 12 Hour.
"With the support of Erebus and our M-Motorsport team, together with a new Mercedes GT3 and a formidable Pro-Am driver line-up, I am confident that we will be a strong contender for the Pro-Am this year," McMillan said.
"The Bathurst 12 Hour is undoubtedly one of the world's most demanding races and we have a lot of boxes to tick but I’m excited for what’s to come.
"Glen has so much experience at this event and is an example of reliability and speed ideal for endurance."
The M-Motorsport/Erebus Mercedes will test at Phillip Island on January 30 before the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour on February 16-18.
Le Brocq will race for his new team in Supercars at the Thrifty Bathurst 500 on February 23-25.
