Fresh Livery for Autoglym Lynk & Co

Press Release – Dylan O’Keeffe will sport a new menacing black livery on his Lynk & Co 03 TCR at Round 3 of the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series at Phillip Island this weekend.

The Ash Seward Motorsport team started the 2024 TCR season in the same colours it ran in 2023 with Tom Oliphant, but with two rounds of the new season complete and a race win under O’Keeffe’s belt, the team has decided to update the scheme to show that the squad means business in 2024.

O’Keeffe won Race 2 at Symmons Plains Raceway last month, having started from pole position and leading from start to finish in a convincing display.

After finishing third in Race 3 in Tasmania, his solid results catapulted him to sixth in the title chase, just 26 points shy of provisional leader Zac Soutar.

O’Keeffe and ASM are no strangers to success at Phillip Island. The Victorian drove the ASM Alfa Romeo to victory in two races during the inaugural TCR Australia season in 2019, and the Victorian is keen to rekindle that strong form.

Practice kicks off at The Island on Friday, followed by qualifying and Race 1 on Saturday and two more races on Sunday.

All of the action can be seen live and free on 7plus, as well as all three races broadcast on 7mate. Check your local guides for details.

“We learnt a lot about the Lynk & Co at Sandown and Tassie, but Phillip Island is a high-grip circuit which we haven’t been to so far this year,” said O’Keeffe.

“I’m keen to stretch the legs of our new-look Autoglym TCR on Phillip Island’s European-style circuit. I haven’t driven on the new track surface there yet, but we feel that the car is really going to suit it.

“Symmons is a unique track, and it’s also very dirty and dusty. The set-up work that we did was   heading in the right direction, so I’m really looking forward to the fast and flowing nature of Phillip Island.

“We’ve got good history there. ASM and myself won there in the first year of TCR in the Alfa Romeo, so this we’re aiming to repeat history.

“And the new livery reflects a new outlook for our team. All black. All eyes forward.”

“We’ve updated the livery of the Autoglym Lynk & Co because we wanted to send a signal to the field that we are here and in the thick of the fight,” said Turney.

“The new look has more grunt and muscle about it. It’s more menacing, a bit sinister, slick and glossy, and that’s what we were going for!

“Dylan has enjoyed great start to the year. We are completely onboard with it and can’t wait to see how Phillip Island and the rest of the season plays out. Ash has the car is dialled in. It’s quick and now it’s got a look to match the performance.”
