After winning the final race in Perth, Jack Le Brocq has catapulted up the Dunlop Series standings. With 725 points to his name, the GoGetta driver is equal with leader and teammate Garry Jacobson, setting up an epic battle between the young racers.  

Le Brocq started from pole position after his earlier two wins at Barbagallo Raceway. A slow start saw Bathurst 1000 winner Paul Dumbrell shoot to the lead early, as a slew of incidents played out in the field.

On lap five Liam McAdam ran into trouble, his front bumper damaged and his Commodore dropping fluid onto the circuit.

That fluid caught out teammate Dumbrell, who spun from the lead into the sandtrap with Kurt Kostecki. That triggered the first Safety Car, with another intervention late in the race with Matt Chahda also getting beached.

Le Brocq sailed home by 1.14sec over Taz Douglas and Todd Hazelwood, with James Golding P4 after running on old tyres and Macauley Jones in fifth.

The GoGetta racer was pleased to get some runs on the board this weekend at his third event with Prodrive.   

Dumbrell and Golding were on the podium for the round. 

“To win first race and round for the weekend as well absolutely stooked,” Le Brocq said.

“Everyone at PRA did a good job and I look forward to the rest of the year.”
