JACK

LE BROCQ

Jack Le Brocq is one of Australia’s hottest young Supercar stars.

Impressive in and out of the car, the 27-year-old has been snapped up by Tickford Racing to drive the Supercheap Auto Ford Mustang for season 2020 and beyond.

For Le Brocq it is something of a home coming, the native Melbournian having raced very successfully for the Tickford squad (then known as Prodrive Racing Australia) in the second tier Super2 series in 2016.

Le Brocq has big shoes to fill in the Supercheap Mustang, replacing the highly successful Chaz Mostert, and was selected by Tickford for one of the sport’s prime drives based on the team’s previous experiences with him at the junior level and its belief in his potential.

It is a major career break for the affable Le Brocq, who for season 2020 now steps into one of the sport’s top teams with the opportunity to establish himself as a star of Supercars.

Prior to joining Tickford, Jack raced for Tekno Autosports in the 2018 and 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championships, enduring two experience-gaining but nonetheless difficult seasons at Supercars’ senior level.

In an ultra-competitive year that saw a record five Rookie drivers make the move into the Supercars main game, Jack out scored them all to finish the 2018 season as highest-placed Championship Rookie driver. His best individual result was a Rookie best fifth outright at Symmons Plains (Tasmania).

Jack’s 2019 season was less successful, with winning the Hard Charger Award (for the most positions gained over the season) one of the rare highlights.

Before moving to Tekno, Jack had headed up Nissan’s first-ever assault on the Dunlop Super2 Series in 2017, racing an ex-factory Altima for the Matthew White Racing team. Jack took four wins and several pole positions across the season to finish third in the title chase, as well as making his part-time debut in the Supercars Championship with ‘Wildcard’ entries in the Darwin and Queensland Raceway rounds.

His 2017 season was completed by co-driving Todd Kelly in the factory Nissan in the Supercars’ endurance championship events, with a best of seventh at Bathurst. Jack’s strong 2017 season came off the back of an equally impressive 2016, where he had been the most successful driver in the Dunlop Series, winning seven races, scoring three clean sweeps, winning the pole award, and finishing runner-up in the series for Prodrive Racing Australia (PRA).

With Prodrive Jack also co-drive Cam Waters in the Monster Falcon in the Supercars endurance races, finishing just off the Bathurst podium in fourth.

Jack came to the Dunlop Series with a wealth of experience in GT racing, where he starred for Erebus Motorsport in its fearsome Mercedes Benz SLS racer at events like the Bathurst 12 Hour. He also debuted for Erebus in the V8 Supercar main series in 2015, contesting the Enduro Cup with Ash Walsh, while at the same time contesting the Dunlop Series aboard a Ford Falcon for Matthew White Racing. He finished third in the title at his first full attempt.

Before that, Jack spent some time in Formula 3, Utes and Kumho Touring Cars, proving his versatility, off the back of winning the then-prime open-wheeler junior driver development series, the Australian Formula Ford Championship in 2012.

A year earlier he’d gone to the UK to contest the British Formula Ford Festival, the world championship for the category, and won his first race before mechanical problems put him out.

Jack’s potential was recognised early, with support from the CAMS Rising Star/AMSF program almost as soon as he left Karting (which he started at age 7) and began racing Formula Vees at just 16years old – the earliest he could get a Racing License.

Most significantly, Jack was selected as one of just 18 drivers around the world to be part of the 2012 FIA Young Driver Excellence Academy. He undertook workshops in Austria and won the Top Fitness Assessment among the Academy inductees.

Jack’s love of motorsport began with his father Geoff, who raced Karts himself with some success.
