Erebus Camaro causes early Bathurst red flag

JACK Le Brocq has endured a false start to his tenure with reigning Supercars champions Erebus Motorsport at the Thrifty Bathurst 500.

The #9 Chevrolet Camaro stopped on the run to the Cutting on its outlap from the pits, just seconds into the hour-long Practice 1.

Supercars TV reported that Le Brocq stopped the car as the result of an engine oil pressure issue.

Le Brocq has moved into the #9 entry this year in place of Will Brown, while Todd Hazelwood steps into #99 vacated by Brodie Kostecki.

The team built two new cars over the off-season, which underwent shakedowns and a full test day at Winton earlier this month.

Practice 1 at Bathurst resumed after the brief stoppage, although Le Brocq is not expected to return to the track during the session.

UPDATE: Erebus Motorsport has completed an engine change on the #9 Le Brocq Camaro ahead of Practice 2.
