LE BROCQ TO MAKE V8 DEBUT AT SANDOWN
Le Brocq has already enjoyed brief outings in a variety of V8 Supercars beginning with a minor role in the categorys own Car of the Future aero program last year.
Testing with Matt Stone Racing earlier this season he cut laps in Matt Palmers Kumho Series Falcon and Erebus Motorsports #9 Mercedes on consecutive days at Calder in September before completing a practice session with MW Motorsport at the most recent round of the Kumho Series at Phillip Island.
â€œMatt (White) runs a great team and its the right car at the right time for me to get some miles before hopefully doing the Dunlop Series next year Le Brocq told Speedcafe.com of racing at Sandown.
â€œIve only ever run these cars on old tyres so Im really looking forward to getting out there on better rubber.
â€œTheyve obviously got a lot of horsepower but they dont turn and brakeÂ like a GT car does so itll take some getting used to.
â€œWere going out there to win it nothing less than that really he added.
â€œWell just put our best foot forward and see what we can do.
Currently working for Minda Motorsport as a mechanic Le Brocq is talking to a number of Dunlop Series team owners while he tries to find a budget for next season.
Matthew White whose squad leads the Dunlop Series through Dale Wood with one round remaining is looking forward to seeing how Le Brocq fares at Sandown.
â€œWe had a good opportunity at Phillip Island to see how Jack went and hear what he had to say about the car and obviously he acquitted himself well White told Speedcafe.com.
â€œIts great for him to be getting miles in this series at Sandown because these days the level in the Dunlop Series is very high.
â€œRyan (Simpson) has really raised the bar in the Kumho Series this year as well and if Jack can get near him then well know weve got a phenomenal talent on our hands.
â€œIf he can be in the top three than I think hell have done a good job. Im planning to run myself in the second car so ultimately thatll give us a very direct comparison on how hes going.
