Truck Assist TEKNO Racing Townsville Review
Truck Assist TEKNO Racing driver Jack Le Brocq registered his best result of the season, with a fighting 14th place finish on a sodden day in Townsville.

The combination showed strong pace in the tricky conditions, especially on slick tyres near the start of the race when grip was limited.

"Saturday was a bit of a tough one, we struggled to get the tyres to last in the race, but we were able to learn a few lessons," said Le Brocq.

"Sunday was an interesting one, obviously the weather came down, which made it really hard to judge which tyre to be on at the right time.

"P14 is a good result, we had some really good speed with slicks on the damp track.

"We'll take 14th, and really look forward to QR now."

A wet opening half hour of practice kicked off the weekend, with Le Brocq using the opportunity to bed in the car for the event.

The track dried for the second session, with the Truck Assist machine registering the 19th fastest time, before improving to 15th in the third and final practice on Saturday morning.

Lap time gains on new tyres in qualifying were hard to come by, with Le Brocq registering the 21st best time from the 20-minute session.

A tough opening lap of race one saw Le Brocq drop to the tail of the field, before engaging in a battle with the pair of Garry Rogers Motorsport Commodores.

After pitting on lap 22 from 11th place, Le Brocq took his second pit stop on lap 42 of 70 from 16th.

In the closing laps, Le Brocq passed Garry Jacobson to claim 23rd position.

Sunday's qualifying session proved to be a carbon copy of Saturday's edition, with Le Brocq claiming 21st on the grid.

From the race start, Le Brocq jumped two positions, with all competitors exercising caution with slick tyres on a damp track.

Working his way through to tenth, a safety car on lap 20 saw Le Brocq head to the pits for service, losing time with a double stacking scenario behind Mark Winterbottom.

Resuming in 18th, Le Brocq forged his way up to ninth before pitting on lap 28 when the heavens opened.

In tricky conditions on the run home, Le Brocq greeted the chequered flag in 14th after completing a late stop on lap 57 of the shortened 64 lap race.

Following the opening 18 races of season 2019, Le Brocq now sits in position 22nd in the series standings, with the Supercars Championship scheduled to continue at Queensland Raceway from July 26 to 28.
