Le Brocq to lock in his racing future
JACK Le Brocq has put beyond doubt his likely home for the 2019 Supercars season, revealing he is in advanced stages of extension talks with Yatala-based Tekno Autosports.
As the highest placed finisher of five rookies this year, Le Brocq is one of the key pieces left in the driver market.
Few seats are still to be finalised
for next season, with two up for grabs at Kelly Racing, one at Tickford Racing and Tekno’s sole Commodore.
Along with Le Brocq, the futures of Lee Holdsworth, Richie Stanaway, Michael Caruso and Andre Heimgartner are to be determined, while drivers such as Garry Jacobson are hunting a promotion from Super2.
Le Brocq has been linked to a move to Tickford, who he
has previously driven for in Super2, but the 26-year-old
insisted a second season at Tekno is on the cards.
“I haven’t 100 per cent finalised it but the plan at the
moment is to continue with those guys,” he said.
“We’re just sorting out all the finer stuff, so the sponsors and bits and pieces but we’ll be there.
“I’m looking forward to going around again and seeing what we can come up with, try to keep improving.”
Le Brocq knows he must step up in qualifying to make the kind of dent he’s plotting for next year.
“We’ll be aiming to be
somewhere in the top 10 in the championship,” he said, having finished 19th this year.
“If we can get up around there, we will be pretty happy. We have done our year of learning; now we have to knuckle down and get some better results on the board.”
If Le Brocq does remain at Tekno, it will be the first time in his Super2/Supercars career that he has been at the same team in consecutive seasons.
