Fresh off a career-best solo race result, Chris Pither has set a target of improving the qualifying speed of his #22 Coca-Cola Commodore this weekend. Team Sydney cashed their chips in early at the first half of the Darwin doubleheader, with Pither using a soft-soft tyre strategy to charge to fifth in the opening race. That included executing fine overtakes on both Shell V-Power Racing Mustangs in the dying laps. All season, Pither has set the simple task of improving round-to-round, and they certainly ticked that box last weekend. “We’re not going to make changes overnight and go to the front of the field; it’s going to be a process but so long as we’re making gains and moving forward it’s [...]
The squad formerly known as Tekno Autosports started the year based out of its existing Gold Coast premises, with the intention to move into the Sydney Motorsport Park complex as soon as possible. That transition is now complete, with the team set up in a temporary onsite workshop – from where it will shift into the planned Centre of Excellence facility at a later date. “[We moved in] probably about a fortnight ago now,” team owner Jonathon Webb told Supercars.com. “We packed up the truck like everyone else did on the Friday at Grand Prix [in March], and not knowing what the world was going to do, the hope and the intent was that we would go to Tassie a [...]

Truck Assist TEKNO Racing driver Jack Le Brocq rounded out season 2019 with a solid drive to 17th in the second race of the Newcastle 500, after an all-night rebuild following Saturday drama. “It was a good reward today for the guys on the team to bring the car home nice and straight, they put in a massive effort overnight to get the show back on the road,” said Le Brocq. “It kind of sums up our season – never give up. “Yesterday was a shame, we’ve had a great run this season keeping the car nice and straight, so it was disappointing to have a DNF. “A big thanks goes out to all of the crew, our sponsors and [...]
Truck Assist TEKNO Racing is making a double throwback for this weekend’s Sandown 500 retro round, with the number 19 Holden Commodore to be driven by Jack Le Brocq and Jonathon Webb sporting a tribute to Bob Morris’s Holden Torana A9X, while also carrying the colours of Truck Assist’s sister company, National Transport Insurance. Morris’s distinctive green, white and blue Toranas hold a special place in the history of Australian motorsport, having taken the Hall of Fame driver to the 1979 Australian Touring Car Championship, edging out Peter Brock in the final point score. Significantly, Morris won the Sandown round from his successful campaign, the 100th race to be contested in the history of the Championship. Morris also won Championship [...]
Truck Assist TEKNO Racing’s Jack Le Brocq and Jonathon Webb have had their best weekend of the Supercars season to date, claiming a pair of 13thplace results from the Vodafone Gold Coast 600. Over the course of the weekend, the duo avoided the ever-present carnage in the concrete canyon, while also making it to the race lead on both days. “It was a great effort by Jonathon and the whole team, everyone here deserves some good results for all of their hard work,” said Le Brocq. “We actually had great speed at the end of the runs, and especially through the chicanes, the Truck Assist Commodore was flying. “I think both results will put us in a pretty good place [...]
Truck Assist TEKNO Racing Bathurst Preview Event Notes- This weekend is Jack Le Brocq’s second Bathurst 1000 as a lead driver, and his fifth Bathurst 1000 attempt in total. Jonathon Webb meanwhile has 13 previous Great Race starts to his credit since 2006.

Event Notes- This weekend marks Jack Le Brocq’s second career visit to New Zealand’s Pukekohe Park Raceway aboard the Truck Assist TEKNO Racing Commodore. In a change for 2019, the round is the final single-driver event leading into the Pirtek Enduro Cup, which commences with the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 from October 10-13. Le Brocq will be looking to improve on his 22nd and 23rd place results from the venue last year. Team TEKNO have form on the board in New Zealand, with four podium visits, including a win for Shane Van Gisbergen in 2014. Pukekohe is the lead-in to Bathurst this year, which is going to be very different. “It’s definitely a strange feeling, that’s for sure!” Said Le Brocq. “Being [...]
