Jack Le Brocq is to leave Matt Stone Racing at the conclusion of the 2023 Supercars season and will replace Will Brown at Erebus Motorsport for 2024.
Le Brocq will finish his second full season with the outfit ahead of his departure, having delivered them their maiden pole and race win this year.
“Matt Stone Racing and Jack Le Brocq will part ways at the end of the 2023 Supercars Championship season,” the team revealed in a statement.
“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 per cent 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’s departure leaves a vacant seat at MSR, with Cameron Hill remaining in the other.
“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,” said Le Brocq.
“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’ championships.”
Truck Assist is also scaling down its Supercars investment, meaning Matt Stone Racing will also be on the lookout for a new backer.
With Richie Stanaway expected to join Grove Racing off the back of David Reynold’s touted departure to Team 18, Scott Pye is likely to remain an in-demand free agent once his Team 18 contract ends, making a move to MSR a possibility.
