Jack Le Brocq will join team-mate Cameron Hill and the other two Repco Supercars Championship rookies in a test at The Bend Motorsport Park tomorrow, ahead of the next round as part of the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix at Albert Park.
“Although Tailem Bend is a fair trek from Queensland, we are going back to The Bend for a championship round later in the year, so testing on that track now should put us in good stead. We can also learn a lot from the fast-flowing corners of The Bend before we go and race on a similar style circuit at the Grand Prix later this month.”
MSR came away from a solid weekend in Newcastle, with Le Brocq the standout after recording two top 10 finishes and a best of eighth place, the same position he now sits in the championship standings.
Hill recorded a commendable 20th and 21st around the Newcastle East Street Circuit on his Supercars debut.
The #35 Truck Assist Racing Camaro, which the two MSR drivers will share, is one of three Supercars expected to test at The Bend, including Tickford Racing's Declan Fraser – who experience a mixed start to his full-time Supercars career when he was out on the opening lap of Race 2 in a start line incident after a solid 13th the day earlier.
As a non-rookie, nor second-year driver, Le Brocq is allowed up to 10 laps (including in and out laps) of the South Australian circuit.
