Jack Le Brocq has delivered Truck Assist Racing its maiden Supercars Championship race win in an incredible day for the team at the Darwin Triple Crown.
It was already an historic day for the Yatala-based squad, with Le Brocq scoring the team and his career-first pole position in Qualifying for Race 15.
In the preceding Race 14, the #34 Camaro driver was caught up in someone else’s incident on Lap 1 and incurred damage to the rear of the car.
The Matt Stone Racing crew worked hard in-between the two races to repair the #34, getting it out to take up the well-earned number one grid slot.
Le Brocq put on a lights-to-flag performance, with the MSR crew also executing two good pit stops.
Cameron Hill featured amongst some intense battle packs in both of the day’s 35-lap races, collecting a pair of solid 16th-place results, despite a cool suit failure in Race 14.
Hill battled through the Darwin heat, showing impressive race pace and race craft.
Adding to a highly successful day, Le Brocq secured a full haul of 105 points with the fastest lap of the race and the new Gen3 lap record at Hidden Valley Raceway.
Le Brocq has moved up to eighth in the Driver’s Championship, with Truck Assist Racing also moving forward to ninth in the Teams’ Championship.
Matt Stone – Team Owner
“It’s just fantastic. I can’t thank the team and JLB enough for bringing it home. Pole position and led every lap that we could and brought it home. Couldn’t be happier. This is what we wanted to do; we said it was coming, we knew we could do it — we said we were going to get on the front row, we did it, and now we won the race. Can’t celebrate soon enough.”
Jack Le Brocq – Driver of #34:
“I’m a bit lost for words to be honest. Firstly, a massive thank you to everyone at Truck Assist and Matt Stone Racing, it’s pretty unreal. The crew has worked so hard, especially the last few hours putting this thing back together, it was pretty banged up after the race earlier today. It has been a long time coming, we’ve had really good speed this year and it was great to be able to convert that into some solid race pace as well. Thank you to everyone at Truck Assist Racing.”
Cameron Hill – Driver of #35:
“It was a mixed weekend for us in Darwin, but good to collect more points in the #35 Truck Assist Camaro. The racing was hard out there, but I had fun. Stoked for Jack and the MSR family to get the team’s first win. Hopefully it’s a sign there’s more to come. Looking forward to the NTI Townsville 500.”
