LE BROCQ CONFIRMED WITH NISSAN
After finishing runner up in last year’s Dunlop Series, Jack Le Brocq will move to a new team and a new car for this year’s Dunlop Super2 Series.
Le Brocq will compete with MW Motorsport in one of their newly acquired Nissan Altimas.
Along with this Le Brocq will co-drive with Todd Kelly and will take advantage of Supercars newly announced wildcard initiative for Super2 competitors.
Le Brocq told Auto Action that he is looking forward to a competitive year and that the relationship with the Kelly’s and Matt White has started off perfectly.
“I’m really looking forward to the year, Le Brocq said.
“I’ll be back with Matt White and the team this year so it’s going to be really big for us. I’m really looking forward to working alongside the Kelly boys and they’ve already been a big help for us with our testing program and bits and pieces already. It’s going to be very competitive with a few guys coming back and a lot more Car of The Future cars in the field too.
“The first day was probably more that I could have asked for and walking away from that is probably the most I’ve been excited in a long time. Just absolutely stoked at the moment.”
Le Brocq is also excited by the challenge of introducing a new car into the Super2 Series.
“It’s going to be exciting and a little bit of unknown with how the Nissan is going to go in the Dunlop Series. Everything’s a new challenge and it will be exciting to battle for race wins and to have a good run with these guys.”
The idea of the wildcards was also what attracted Le Brocq to the program and he thinks it will aid his development towards his ultimate goal of being in the Main Game.
“This is the best option and will give us a good chance to do some wildcards and get that experience before we make the step up. I think it’s going to give us the best opportunity that I’ve had so far.”
Le Brocq and Nissan will run for the first time together on the streets of Adelaide on March 2-5.
