Dylan O’Keeffe will compete in the 2019 TCR Australia Series, driving for Ashley Seward Motorsport in one of the Garry Rogers Motorsport-owned Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce cars.
O’Keeffe is one of the rising stars of Australian motorsport, having learnt his craft in Porsche racing at both state and national levels. Last year, O’Keeffe enjoyed a successful stint in Carrera Cup, finishing sixth outright before making the step to the Super2 Supercars Series with GRM this year.
Ashley Seward Motorsport will run joint program with GRM to run the Alfa Romeo that will see the two organisations supporting each other with technical information, data and logistics.
“Ash has played a major part in my racing life since I started in Porsche five years ago, and now I’m obviously aligned with GRM, working for them full-time and racing with them in Super2,” said O’Keeffe. “It’s great to see both teams working together and helping each other, and I’m very happy to be a piece of the puzzle. I’ve watched some of the TCR races overseas, and they’re always great to watch – the cars are evenly-matched, and they put on close racing with plenty of passing. One of the best things about the category is the cars are the same all around the world, so once you’ve learned the right driving technique, you can go and race in other TCR events and know what to expect. I’m expecting the driving style to be completely different to anything I’ve raced before. Fortunately, we have the pre-season test tomorrow at Winton, which will give me a chance to learn and understand the car.”
