Race Recap - 24-hour marathon slog at the Bol d’Or
April 26th, 2013

You’ve accomplished so much in World Supersport, how did it come about that you joined up with Yamaha to spearhead their WEC campaign while contesting the full season of the FX-Superbike Championship at home in Australia?

I was actually in negotiations with Yamaha at the time, and was working towards a cutoff date. The Yamaha Austria team manager just rung me up part way through and offered me the ride. He’d been watching my career for a bit and knew that I was free. It actually worked out really well because it meant I would be on a Yamaha here and a Yamaha over there. Originally I’d looked at the dates and I think one of the rounds clashed as they’d asked me to do the full WEC season. I don’t know which dates ended up changing but when I looked at it again I worked out I could do all four rounds.

How much time did you actually get on the YART bike given that the weather wasn’t at its best when the team attended the scheduled tests at Magny-Cours.

We went over there for four days of testing. The first one Josh Waters was there, which was good, though we didn’t get as ...   Read more...

2nd position at the Bol D'Or 24 hour world endurance championship at Magny Cours
April 21st, 2013
After 799 laps, over 3500km of racing, 900 litres of fuel, 30 pit stops and an average speed of over 146km per hour Broc and the Yamaha Racing Austria Team (YART) finished on the podium in 2nd position behind the full factory effort from Kawasaki. The first time at the Bol D'Or for Broc, accompanied by double world endurance champion Igor Jerman and last minute replacement Sheridan Morais, the team qualified in 9th position. Broc started the race with the famous dash across the track to leave the grid with a big handful of throttle. After 6 hours and 161 laps Broc and YART were in 6th place behind the BMW and Honda TT LegendsTeam. By 12 hours Broc and the team had completed 395 laps and were up to 3rd having passed the Honda TT Legends team and BMW had gone missing. After a long night with temperatures dropping to only 5 degrees centigrade Broc was 598 laps in and up to 3rd position behind the Yamaha GMT team. The last few hours saw a huge battle with Suzuki who were in 4th place. Broc rode his usual 50 minute session but as the fastest rider in the team his services were called upon for another session to keep the Suzuki behind. Great efforts by Igor and Sheridan consolidated the position at 2.5 laps ahead. This saw a change in rider order meaning Broc was again on the bike for the final stage of the race and crossed the finish line to take 2nd place. A great start to Broc's world endurance career ...   Read more...
