Truck Assist, Australia’s foremost truck roadside assistance and online insurance provider, has today confirmed a continuation of its partnership with driver Jack Le Brocq and TEKNO Autosports for the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
TEKNO and NTI Truck Assist debuted their partnership at the 2018 Sandown 500, with the distinctive orange and black livery campaigned the final five events of the year, with a highlight being Le Brocq claiming top rookie honours for the season on the streets of Newcastle.
Throughout his breakthrough campaign, Le Brocq claimed five top-ten finishes, with best race and qualifying results of fifth.
“Truck Assist is proud to once again be partnering with Jack Le Brocq and TEKNO in 2019,” said Alan Hasted, General Manager, Truck Assist.
“Supercars is the perfect platform to expose Truck Assist to a passionate nationwide audience, with the feedback from our introduction to sport last year a huge boost for the brand.
“Throughout his journey up the motorsport ranks, Jack has proven his talent, with his efforts last year against some incredible competition highly impressive.
“Jack is the perfect ambassador for Truck Assist and is going to go a very long way in the sport.
