Kelly Racing is pleased to announce Castrol as the primary partner of the #62 Castrol Racing Holden Astra TCR driven by Alex Rullo.

Castrol’s partnership with Kelly Racing now includes two primary categories involving Supercars and TCR. Involved with Castrol is BP Ultimate fuels who are supporting the 18 year-old young gun for the full seven races of the TCR Australia Series.

Fans will be able to get their first look at the #62 Castrol Racing Holden Astra TCR this weekend as it hits the track for the inaugural round of TCR at Sydney Motorsport Park from the 17 – 19 May. Prior to the first event, the team will take the opportunity to test all four TCR cars at Winton today.

Kelly Racing has also elected to rebadge the two Astra’s as Holden’s to be relevant with the local market and comes with support from AHG and McGrath Holden.

“It’s really exciting to have Castrol on board. It has a long history in motorsport and with Kelly Racing so to see its iconic brand on my Astra is really motivating heading into the TCR Australia Series,” said Alex Rullo.

“The car looks fantastic. The Castrol livery is so iconic you can’t really go wrong. And now that we’ve rebadged the car as a Holden thanks to AHG and McGrath Holden, I think the fans are really going to love it.

“Today we have a test day today at Winton Raceway as a final shakedown for the car and for me to get to know it a bit better and get used to driving front-wheel drive with the steering wheel on the left. 

“I’m looking forward to pushing the car and then heading into first practice at Sydney Motorsport Park on Friday.”
