Victory for Ashley Seward Motorsport at Symmons Plains

2024/03/17

Ashley Seward Motorsport has taken home a fresh batch of silverware in the latest rounds of TCR Australia.

In TCR, Dylan O'Keeffe steered his Autoglym-backed Lynk & Co to a race win and second place overall after one of the most dramatic racing weekends on record.

O’Keeffe displayed pace in practice, but missed the window in qualifying to start the opening race in 11th. He finished Race 1 in 10th, which meant he would start from pole for Race 2 in the reverse top 10 affair.

This is where O’Keeffe’s weekend turned around. He won Race 2, and despite dropping as low as ninth in the final race, he finished third, giving him second overall for the round and a handy chunk of points towards his 2024 title charge.

The next round of TCR Australia will be held as part of the Shannons SpeedSeries at Phillip Island on April 12-14.

“A tough weekend in general but we finished on a high on Sunday," said O'Keeffe.

"The car rolled out well in Practice 1 and we had a good baseline compared to what we had at Sandown for Round 1.

“The car rolled out really strong so we knew from the start we had a decent package. Unfortunately for Practice 2 and qualifying, we detuned the car. We fell back a little bit and just misread the track conditions.

“We had a strong showing, especially in the reverse grid race. We had a great package and came through to win that race.

“In Race 3, we had a decent start and there was good battling – hard aggressive racing which is what we like to see. Sometimes you can be on the right end of it, other times not and unfortunately I dropped right back to ninth but we knuckled down, we knew we had a good package and came back to the podium.

"Massive thanks to Ashley Seward Motorsport, the crew and Autoglym for all their support. They all stuck by us. Thanks for sticking by us. We're really looking forward to Round 3 at Phillip Island."
