Jack Le Brocq has cleaned up at the Castrol EDGE Townsville 400 extending his Dunlop Series lead to teammate Garry Jacobson by 60 points.

Le Brocq walks away with two ARMOR ALL Pole Positions and two race wins’ after a weekend of on-track domination.

After laying down the fastest lap of the race with a 1min.15.15sec, he continued to extend his gap by 6.1 seconds in front of veteran Paul Dumbrell during race two in Townsville this afternoon.

The Eggleston Motorsport racer overtook the young gun in lap one of the race, however Le Brocq wrestled the spot back shortly after.

Le Brocq emphasised no harm was done and he knew the Ford Falcon FGX was going to have the speed over him, after maintaining great speed all weekend.

“We just need to make sure we keep chipping away at it, we are on a good streak and we have had great pace to back that up,” Le Brocq said.

“I am feeling really comfortable and confident in the car and am looking forward to the last three rounds”.

The Prodrive sensation has accomplished five race wins in a row, blitzing the field at the Perth SuperSprint last round and the Castrol EDGE Townsville 400 this weekend.

Todd Hazelwood has shown determination for success, turning it up this weekend and taking out third place today.

Hazelwood emphasised that his podium result in Townsville has been a long time running because the team have worked really hard this year with the new gen car.

“It is hard to keep moving forward and keep up with these guys but we are really wrapped with the progress we have made,” Hazelwood said.

“I can do the job because I know when I get the opportunity I can rise and get the result”.

Hazelwood finished 5.4 seconds behind Paul Dumbrell.

Garry Jacobson incurred a five second penalty due to a breach of start which threw away his chance at battling teammate Jack Le Brocq for today’s win.

Jacobson admitted his breach of start was a case of mistiming his ambition to get off the line in order to get his best chance for a race win.

“I was barely keeping up with them…you’ve just got to keep fighting,” Jacobson said on his battle with Le Brocq.

Jacobson finished Race Two in position six behind GRM driver James Golding.

James Golding has struggled to keep his pace this weekend at the Castrol EDGE Townsville 400, however has managed to remain consistently in the top ten of the field with teammate Richard Muscat.

The Wilson Security Racing PAYCE GRM drivers were head to head all weekend in an internal battle for the next best.

The Dunlop Series will be back on-track at Wilson Security Sandown 500, 16-18 September.
