The quiet achiever through first three rounds

If not for a DNF out of his control in Melbourne, Jack Le Brocq would be fourth in the championship
  • Jack Le Brocq seventh in points after three rounds

  • Erebus recruit has six top 10s in eight starts

  • Le Brocq could be as high as fourth if not for AGP DNF

Jack Le Brocq has proven the quiet achiever through the first three rounds in 2024, with the Erebus Motorsport recruit repaying his new team’s faith in signing him.

Le Brocq was prised away from Matt Stone Racing to replace Will Brown, who leads the championship after three rounds in Red Bull Ampol colours.

However, Le Brocq has proven a solid signing for Erebus amid the team’s dramatic start to the season, and sits seventh in the championship after three rounds.

After finishing 13th in Race 1 in Bathurst, Le Brocq has been a constant of the top 10, and is just 24 points from fourth placed Richie Stanaway after finishes of fifth and eighth in New Zealand.

Le Brocq’s only blip was a DNF caused by contact from Thomas Randle while disputing ninth in the Melbourne finale. The collision caused the #9 TFH Hire Camaro to retire the race.


Critically, Le Brocq finished ahead of returning champion Brodie Kostecki in both Taupō races, with Kostecki penalised twice in as many days.

In what has proven a Triple Eight-dominated season so far, Erebus has moved to third in the teams’ standings, something that wasn’t lost on Le Brocq.

"Great to make the Shootout. It's always good to tick that box,” he said in a team video after the Taupō finale.

“We were running in P6 for that first stint. Probably went a little bit long in that first [stint], probably hurt myself in the middle, just coming out into the traffic. And, yeah, probably used up the rear tyre a little bit.

“But, the guys here at TFH Hire Racing did a great job this weekend. To come away with another top 10 in P8, it’s always good fun.

"Moved forward in the drivers' championship and also in P3 now in the teams’. So, pretty solid weekend here, and it's great to have Bush [Kostecki] back, and looking forward to getting to Perth.”

Kostecki and Le Brocq will resume their 2024 campaigns at the Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint on May 17-19.
