Matt Stone Racing to farewell Le Brocq

MATT Stone Racing has accepted defeat in its effort to keep Jack Le Brocq beyond the current Supercars season.

Le Brocq has been a revelation this year, proving one of the most consistent qualifiers and delivering MSR its first ever race win in Darwin.

He had long been tipped to re-sign with the Yatala squad, until it became clear that he will shift to Erebus Motorsport to replace Triple Eight-bound Will Brown in 2024.

Erebus has not yet confirmed that element of the equation, but Le Brocq is officially on the move.

“Matt Stone Racing and Jack Le Brocq will part ways at the end of the 2023 Supercars Championship season,” read a statement from MSR.

“It has been agreed by both parties that Jack will not continue with the team into 2024, seeing out the end of his current contract.

“We would like to thank Jack for his professionalism and family spirit whilst at MSR and wish him all the best for the future.

“MSR is very pleased to have helped Jack get his best-ever results in Supercars so far in 2023, including the team’s first-ever Supercars race win in Darwin and Jack and the team’s maiden pole position.

“Both Jack and the team remain a hundred percent focused on the rest of the 2023 season and ramping up for the enduro campaign to finish off the year on a high.

“An announcement on MSR’s exciting plans for 2024 will be made in due course.”

Le Brocq added: “I’d like to start this update by thanking Matt Stone and the MSR team for their support and faith in me since we started our journey together.

“It was a tough decision for both parties, but the 2023 season will be my last at MSR.

“It’s been a big 18 months for the team, including MSR’s maiden Supercars win in Darwin. We’ve all grown a lot over that time, and I will forever be grateful to have played a part in it.

“There’s five rounds to go this season, so my focus will remain on getting the best results we can right through until the chequered flag flies in Adelaide.

“We won’t stop pushing towards our goal of securing a top 10 in the drivers’ and teams’ Championship.”

MSR appears one of few teams with a vacancy remaining for 2024.
