TEAM TEKNO’s IPSWICH SUPERSPRINT RACE WRAP.

Jack Le Brocq aboard the Team TEKNO Commodore has returned to the top-ten, with a tenth place performance to round out his weekend at Queensland Raceway.

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, a positive weekend, it’s good to get back in the top-ten again.

“Bring on Sydney!”

Racing in the sunset on Saturday
Kicking off the weekend was a co-driver only session, with Jonathon Webb jumping behind the wheel and registering the eighth fastest time.

Le Brocq resumed driving duties for the pair of 45-minute-long Friday practices, registering the 17th fastest time in the sunny first run, and 23rd best in the latter session, which started on a damp track.

Saturday morning’s final practice netted Le Brocq the 12th top time, before qualifying 23rd for race 19, only 0.8066sec off pole position.

After settling in 24th at the start, the TEKNO crew elected to run long before pitting, which finally occurred on lap 23 of 39, while the number 19 machine was running in third spot.

With solid pace in the closing laps, Le Brocq drove up to 21st position by the chequered flag.

Sunday morning’s qualifying session saw an improved result, with Le Brocq lining up from position 12 for the 67 lap finale.

Following the opening lap, Le Brocq found himself in 11th position, before pitting on laps 11 and 36.

Picking off competitors in the run to the chequered flag, Le Brocq was eventually classified in tenth.

After 20 races in season 2018, Le Brocq now sits 19th in the Championship standings, with the next round a new format for Supercars, with a 300km night race at Sydney Motorsport Park on August 3-4.
