As first reported by Speedcafe, the Coca Cola-backed outfit turned its eyes to Le Brocq after granting Brown a release for his move to Triple Eight Race Engineering to take over from NASCAR-bound Shane van Gisbergen.
Earlier today, Matt Stone Racing announced the departure of the Melburnian once his contract expires at the end of the current Supercars campaign, and now the next piece of the puzzle has been made official.
The move reunites Le Brocq with the squad which fielded him as a junior a decade ago, in the Australian GT Championship and under the Erebus Academy banner in Formula 3.
Le Brocq, currently eighth in the drivers' standings with a win to his name at Hidden Valley, will be team-mate to current Repco Supercars Championship leader Brodie Kostecki, who was already contracted for 2024.
The exact term of the deal for its latest recruit has not been specified, with Erebus's announcement referring to him being part of its line-up “from 2024”.
“We have witnessed Jack's journey and some of his achievements firsthand, and we're thrilled to welcome him back to the family,” said Ryan.
“Obviously, we still have five rounds remaining this season, and right now our focus in on winning the Driver's and Team's Championship.”
Le Brocq added, “Erebus is a team that has been instrumental in my career, and I am excited to re-join them next season.
“I look forward to contributing to Erebus' ongoing success in 2024, though my immediate focus is on giving my all for the remainder of the 2023 season with my current team.”
The 2023 Supercars Championship resumes with opening practice for the OTR SuperSprint tomorrow at The Bend from 09:45 local time/10:15 AEST.
