In qualifying, Le Brocq was on for a third-place until exceeding track limits on his best flying lap, and with his time deleted had to start from 13th.
A solid drive by JLB and good strategy saw Car #34 leap three positions to claim 10th at the chequered flag.
Having demonstrated how his qualifying form is building with 11th on the grid, Hill put on a top-level drive in the race, running well inside the top 10 until a rare wheel nut failure in his pit stop caused a delay that put Car #35 to the rear of field.
MSR remains 8th in the Teams’ Championship and is now focused on the next round in South Australia at The Bend.
Following a team partner ride day at Sydney Motorsport Park on Monday the team heads straight to Tailem Bend for a test day with Car #35 to ensure the squad is fully prepared for Round 8 of the Supercars Championship.
MSR’s enduro co-drivers will be in attendance at the SMP ride day to gain valuable seat time in the new Gen3 Chevrolet Camaro ahead of Sandown and Bathurst, where the team have high expectations with Jayden Ojeda and Jaylyn Robotham also having strong seasons in their own GT3 and overseas racing this year.
“Not the best day but not too shabby either. A mistake from me in qualifying put us back in P13 but the boys did a great job to rebound in the race and get us up into P10. Some more solid points for the weekend and looking forward to rolling into a The Bend in a few weeks.”
Cameron Hill – Driver of #35:
“It was a massive round for me being my home round with a lot of family and friends coming up from Canberra. It was great to have so much support and we had a good run both days with good qualifying results, although unfortunately we didn’t get the race results we wanted due to things that were outside of our control. I’m happy with how we have continued to build this weekend and can’t thank the team enough for giving me a fast race car.”
