Jack Le Brocq will depart Matt Stone Racing at the end of the 2023 Supercars season, the team has confirmed.

Le Brocq, who was off contract at season’s end, is set for a new home in 2024 — albeit a familiar one.

The 31-year-old recently emerged as the leading candidate to join Erebus Motorsport after Will Brown’s shift to Triple Eight was locked in.

A move elsewhere has yet to be confirmed, with MSR to announce its plans for 2024 in due course.

Rookie Cameron Hill joined the team alongside Le Brocq this season, with his 2024 plans also yet to be announced.

"Matt Stone Racing and Jack Le Brocq will part ways at the end of the 2023 Supercars Championship season,” an MSR statement reads.

"It has been agreed by both parties that Jack will not continue with the team into 2024, seeing out the end of his current contract.

"We would like to thank Jack for his professionalism and family spirit whilst at MSR and wish him all the best for the future.

"MSR is very pleased to have helped Jack get his best-ever results in Supercars so far in 2023, including the team’s first-ever Supercars race win in Darwin and Jack and the team's maiden pole position.

"Both Jack and the team remain a hundred percent focussed on the rest of the 2023 season and ramping up for the enduro campaign to finish off the year on a high.

"An announcement on MSR’s exciting plans for 2024 will be made in due course."


Le Brocq added: "I’d like to start this update by thanking Matt Stone and the MSR team for their support and faith in me since we started our journey together.

"It was a tough decision for both parties, but the 2023 season will be my last at MSR. It's been a big 18 months for the team, including MSR's maiden Supercars win in Darwin.

"We've all grown a lot over that time, and I will forever be grateful to have played a part in it.

"There’s five rounds to go this season, so my focus will remain on getting the best results we can right through until the chequered flag flies in Adelaide.

"We won’t stop pushing towards our goal of securing a top 10 in the Drivers’ and Teams’ Championship."

Brown’s move to Triple Eight was confirmed earlier this week, with the Queenslander replacing Shane van Gisbergen from 2024.

The Brown departure opened a key vacancy at Erebus, which has challenged for wins at every round this season.

After seven rounds, Erebus has Brodie Kostecki and Will Brown in first and second in the drivers’ standings, and leads the teams’ championship.

Supercars will hit the track at The Bend Motorsport Park for the OTR SuperSprint on Saturday.

Tickets for the event are on sale now.
