In the lead up to Matt Stone Racing’s 50th Supercars Championship round start, the team are excited to share that Jack Le Brocq has signed a multi-year deal with the Yatala based squad for 2022 and beyond.
“We are really pleased to have Jack joining MSR for the next few years. For us Jack was the perfect choice. We know how good he is from the many battles we’ve had with him in the past and look forward to him contributing to our push to move up the grid.” said team owner, Matt Stone.
“MSR are racers, pure and simple.” commented Le Brocq. “The team has made great progress toward the front of the field over the past couple of seasons, so I am very pleased to now have the opportunity to join them and contribute to that progression.”
The 29-year old’s career across multiple categories, in the lead up to his full-time debut in the Supercars main game, is nothing short of impressive. Fast forward to his successes since racing in Australian motorsports top category, and he continues to impress.
In 2020, Jack claimed his maiden Supercars career win at the Truck Assist Sydney SuperSprint, then went on to score another podium result with 2nd at The Bend, where he had to battle it out with current series leader Shane Van Gisbergen.
“Jack beat the likes of Anton DePasquale and Matt Campbell when he won the Australian Formula Ford Championship, and he was a fierce competitor against us with Todd in Super2. We know his best is yet to come in Supercars.” Stated Stone.
Matt Stone Racing believe that Jack will thrive in the MSR team environment to reach his full potential and perform at his absolute best. The whole team really look forward to having Jack race with MSR from next year. He is a true professional who’s worked hard to get where he is and takes nothing for granted.
Le Brocq added, “With the team’s capabilities and its competitive machinery across all levels of Supercars, I see no reason why we won’t be regulars in the top 10 and aiming for podiums and better. I have learned a lot these past two seasons, so I am looking forward to putting that into practice.”
“After two COVID interrupted seasons, I am also looking forward to getting some stability back into our racing.”
With the combined 8 years of experience between both Le Brocq and future teammate Hazelwood, Matt Stone Racing are extremely confident we have a strong, competitive driver pairing for the 2022 season.
When asked about having two experienced drivers locked in for next season, Stone said, “It will be good to add a bit of experience into our line-up. Matt Stone Racing is traditionally focused on rookies, and it will be good to have guys in the seats with a few years under their belt to take it to the next level in their careers. I’m sure they are both very hungry to make some solid steps forward and so is the team.”
Stone also mentioned, “We are looking forward to more stability over the next few years with both drivers on multiyear deals so that we can focus on the roll into Gen 3 and capitalising on the new regulations.”
Having competed against each other door to door in the 2017 Super2 Championship, both drivers learnt the other’s strengths and weakness, and although in different teams, they were able to push each other forward. We believe together, as teammates, they will be able to build and use this knowledge to take themselves and MSR to the next level and fight hard for consistent top results.
This announcement now completes Matt Stone Racing’s driver line up for the 2022 season.
