TEAMTEKNO/TOUR DE CURE RACE THE WD-40 PHILLIP ISLAND 500

The TEKNO/Tour de Cure Commodore in action at Phillip Island
Jack Le Brocq had another solid learning weekend aboard the TeamTEKNO/Tour de Cure Commodore at the WD-40 Phillip Island 500, with consistently quick race laps a highlight for the team over the course of the event.

Having to work hard after a pair of tough qualifying results, Le Brocq registered finishes of 20th and 18th from the respective races.

“The big positive to take away from the event is that we had good race pace, but we just need to qualify better to be able to take advantage of it,” said Le Brocq.
Le Brocq: prepares for battle
“On Saturday, we were seventh to eighth best on average lap times throughout the whole race, so the speed is there.

“Although we didn’t quite get the results we were looking for, it was another strong weekend of learning the car and team.

“Also, it was great to be able to support the Tour de Cure, they are an amazing group of people doing incredible work.”

Jack Le Brocq had excellent race pace
Friday for the team started on the back foot when a steering rack issue relegated Le Brocq to the bottom of the time sheets for the opening practice session, before battling against some niggling issues to place 21st in final run.

Twenty minutes of qualifying ahead of the opening 57 lap on Saturday netted Le Brocq the 17th starting position.

After being forced wide at the Hay Shed early, Le Brocq’s race was further hindered when he was spun around at MG Corner.

With the race running Safety Car free, Le Brocq forged his way back through to 20th at the chequered flag.

Sunday morning qualifying netted Le Brocq the 21st place on the grid for the final 250km race.

The team made an early strategy call by bringing Le Brocq into the pits prior to the race’s only Safety Car appearance.

After making solid progress, Le Brocq had a lonely race home following the second round of pit stops, placing 18th at the finish.

After the completion of ten races, Le Brocq now sits in position 19 in the series standings.

The Supercars Championship now heads west, with the annual visit to Western Australia and Barbagallo Raceway from May 18-20.
