Australian GT race winner Jack Le Brocq joins M-Motorsport



Ahead of the second round of the Australian GT Championship at Phillip Island in late May [22-24], the M-Motorsport team of Justin McMillan has revealed that 2013 Australian GT sensation Jack Le Brocq will join him in the Interlloy Camaro for the remainder of the 2015 season.

“I’m excited by what Jack brings to the team,” McMillan admitted of the announcement. “He showed in 2013 that he was a consistent GT race winner, taking four consecutive victories in his only drive in the series, so I’m sure he’ll be able to make the transition across to the Camaro with no trouble at all.”

Le Brocq replaces former F1 driver Tomas Enge who joined the team for the opening round in Adelaide, however due to his international commitments, Enge has been forced to withdraw from the Australian GT program, paving the way for the 2012 Australian Formula Ford champion to drive alongside McMillan in the Interlloy Camaro.

“I’m so pumped about this opportunity with M-Motorsport,” said Le Brocq.
 “The Camaro is an awesome machine and after testing at Phillip Island last week, I can’t wait to get racing.

“The cars are still quite new so it’s also a chance to help in the development phase, which is something I really enjoy.”

Aside from his involvement with McMillan in the new 7.9-litre, 650-horsepower Interlloy Camaro, Le Brocq will continue his 2015 Dunlop Development Series [V8 Supercar] program with Matthew White Motorsport, as well as his relationship with Erebus Motorsport in a development role.

Le Brocq’s chance to test the new car at Phillip Island also coincided with Reiter Engineering’s return to the country to undertake further development with the iconic Camaro GT car, with McMillan, Dale Paterson and Steven Richards turning laps of the Grand Prix circuit ahead of the second round of the championships - the ‘101’ endurance race on May 22-24.
