Tickford Racing confirm Jack Le Brocq as replacement for Chaz Mostert

Tickford Racing has confirmed Jack Le Brocq as replacement for Chaz Mostert for the 2020 Supercars Championship season, also confirming Supercheap Auto as title sponsor.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be coming back to Tickford Racing, and am very excited to be driving the Supercheap Auto Ford Mustang in 2020,” said Le Brocq, who drove for the team in the 2016 Super2 Series.

“To have an opportunity with one of the sport’s top teams is amazing, and to be partnered with Supercheap Auto is a great honour. My first two years in the championship have been a rollercoaster at times, but I’ve learned heaps and can’t wait to apply it all to the Ford Mustang next year.

“Tickford has had a great 2019 season, and I certainly want to add to that in 2020, so we’ll be head down this off-season to get me up to speed when we hit the track in Adelaide.”

Le Brocq has raced for Tekno Autosports for the past two seasons, finishing 22nd overall with two podium finishes this year.

“We’re very excited to have Jack coming aboard, and are delighted to have re-signed Supercheap Auto as a naming rights partner,” said Tim Edwards, team manager of Tickford Racing.

“Jack is someone we’re well familiar with and have followed for a long time. We enjoyed working with him in Super2 so to bring him back into the fold at the main game level is really positive for the both of us.

“Our fans will remember back in 2005 we signed a young Mark Winterbottom who had a tough first two years in the championship, and that turned out quite well.

“We see similar potential in Jack, we know he has ability in the car, and with the right people and resources we believe he can run up the front, and we look forward to providing that in 2020.”
