MW Motorsport's Jack Le Brocq has carried his strong momentum from Perth into the NP300 Navara Winton SuperSprint by recording the second quickest time in final practice yesterday.

After clinching his maiden V8 Supercars Dunlop Series podium at Barbagallo, the pilot of the #28 Falcon continued his front-running form into yesterday's sessions that saw him 0.47secs adrift of pacesetter Cameron Waters.

Le Brocq was seventh in the day's earlier session however, and acknowledged that the MW Motorsport crew was still lookingto find some gains before qualifying this morning.

"It's going really well, we've obviously got a little way to go to reach Cam [Waters] at the moment but we had a good run on the greens today," he told v8supercars.com.au.

"There's still a couple of tenths left on the table there and... we're chasing a little bit of understeer at the moment in a few corners.

"The guys will have a look at her overnight and put something together that works for tomorrow."

The Melbourne-native was on double duties yesterday, clocking laps in the Erebus Motorsport V8 entry he will steer in this year's PIRTEK Enduro Cup alongside Ash Walsh.

And he neared the top of the time sheets in those sessions also, finishing third overall in practice one before falling back to 18th in practice two.

"The laps in the Erebus car definitely always help [on a Dunlop Series race weekend]," he told v8supercars.com.au.

"More time in any car is always valuable.

"It's good to get your eye back in, while it's also a good chance to learn that car aswell."

Le Brocq enters the third round of the Dunlop Series third in the series standings, trailing leader Waters by 144 points.

The Dunlop Series qualify for race one at Winton today at 10.35am.
