The 20-year-old credited his win to the engineering team, who seemingly struck the right gear with his Gen3 Chevrolet Camaro.

Broc had high praise for team Red Bull Race Engineer Martin Short after claiming his second race win of the 2023 season.

“He’s like the quiet assassin … he doesn’t say a whole lot but he says what he needs to at the right time,” Broc said.

“It makes such a big difference to have a good car underneath you especially with these things with no tuning ability – what they send you out with is what you’ve got.

“Everyone’s been up and down so much so being able to find your right car for your driver … they certainly got that right, [I’m] super grateful for those guys.”

Under Shane’s shadow

Bcor edged out Erebus Motorsport duo Will Brown and Brodie Kostecki who finished second and third respectively.
This is his first year replacing the legendary Jamie Whincup as Red Bull’s second driver next to the indomitable Shane Van Gisbergen.
Broc said working alongside such a legendary racer has certainly helped him develop at a quick pace.

“It’s given me the confidence that I can do it and moving to the cars this year it’s been good to be on a level playing field,” he said.

“To come in to a fresh start has been awesome and to get two wins so far this year … has been awesome.
“It’s been so cool to see him do his thing, he’s been great to work with for me.
“To be the best, you’ve got to beat the best and Shane’s certainly been that guy for the last few years.
“I hope he stays around and we continue working into the future.”

The Supercars Championship Series will continue in Tasmania at Symmons Plains starting May 19.
