Erebus announces Le Brocq signature

EREBUS Motorsport has confirmed Jack Le Brocq will replace Will Brown at the team for the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship.

It became clear the team which currently leads both championships would have a prized vacancy once Triple Eight secured Brown’s signature, to take over from NASCAR-bound Shane van Gisbergen.

Le Brocq has now been confirmed at Erebus, presumably to drive the #9 entry, while Brodie Kostecki continues on in the sister Camaro.

It’s a reunion for Le Brocq/Erebus, whose relationship with Barry Ryan spans more than a decade including the now Erebus CEO engineering his title-winning 2012 Australian Formula Ford campaign.

He joined the Erebus fold the following year via the Australian GT Championship and made his Supercars main debut with them at the 2015 Sandown 500, partnering Ash Walsh in a Mercedes E63.

Le Brocq, 31, is now in his sixth full Supercars Championship season and is in the midst of a career-best campaign with Matt Stone Racing.

“Erebus is a team that has been instrumental in my career, and I am excited to rejoin them next season,” said Le Brocq.

“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.”

Ryan added: “We have witnessed Jack’s journey and some of his achievements first-hand, and we’re thrilled to welcome him back to the family.

“Obviously, we still have five rounds remaining this season, and right now our focus is on winning the drivers’ and teams’ championship.”

Erebus, Triple Eight and Dick Johnson Racing are the only teams thus far to have confirmed their full primary driver line-ups for 2024.
