The weekend marked a significant milestone for the squad, with the Saturday race being the 250th for Team TEKNO in Supercars competition. “It was a bit of a tough weekend, we chased car setup and some niggling issues, but we’ve managed to score some points and a whole lot of experience,” said Le Brocq. “It was my first ever event at Pukekohe, so there was a fair bit to take in, it’s a pretty hairy old school track! “We roll on to Newcastle, we were fast last year [...]

The Truck Assist Team TEKNO machine of Jack Le Brocq and Jonathon Webb had an up and down weekend on the streets of Surfers Paradise for the Gold Coast 600, with strong car pace a major takeaway from the event. A solid drive in the opening leg resulted in a 16th place finish, but early contact sidelined the car on Sunday. “It was a tough Sunday for us,” said Le Brocq. “Unfortunately I caused a red flag after getting stuck down an escape road in qualifying, and I wasn’t able to find reverse gear. “Jono started off the race really well and moved up a few positions, but had a bit of a tangle and broke a wishbone on the [...]
The Truck Assist Team TEKNO Holden Commodore of Jack Le Brocq and Jonathon Webb finished the Bathurst 1000 in 15th position, after a tough day-long battle at Mount Panorama.

The combination had a promising start to the race, but a mysterious broken rear track rod after 21 of 161 laps saw the remainder of the event become an extended test session. “It’s disappointing to have an issue before we even got going properly, but that’s motorsport,” said Le Brocq. “We really worked hard on the balance of the car all weekend long, and I think we found something in the warm up which would have given us a good car to fight with in the race. “It’s [...]
The Team TEKNO Holden Commodore driven by Jack Le Brocq worked hard on the comeback trail twice, as the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship hit The Bend Motorsport Park for the very first time. First lap incidents made for a difficult pair of races on the all-new South Australian circuit for Le Brocq, who worked hard to consolidate championship points. “I was lucky to get some laps around The Bend earlier in the year, but for the first time here in the Team TEKNO Supercar, there certainly were some challenges,” said Le Brocq. “The battle in practice was all about trying to find a balance in the car, which wasn’t easy given the slippery conditions and low-grip nature of the circuit. [...]

"We [...]

The effort was the fourth top-ten result for Le Brocq in his debut Supercars season, following on from strong runs at Symmons Plains and Barbagallo Raceways. “It was a bit up and down, we were alright in P1, but we took a bit of a wrong turn after that with the setup,” said Le Brocq. “It was good to bounce back today, we tuned it up and we had a really good race car yesterday as well. “The big difference was qualifying today, and we were able to race in the top-ten. “It’s good, [...]
