Dylan O’Keeffe to partner Nick Percat for enduros

Nick Percat will be joined by Porsche Carrera Cup race winner Dylan O’Keeffe for the Supercars enduro season in the Bendix Racing Chevrolet Camaro.

Matt Stone Racing has signed O’Keeffe for the Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000 as Percat’s co-driver.

O’Keeffe is currently competing in Porsche Carrera Cup Australia and the TCR Australia Series this season, with no shortage of seat-time.

Having won in TCR at Phillip Island earlier this year, he more recently chalked up a pole position and a trio of top five finishes in New Zealand in Carrera Cup.

O’Keeffe is also now a Supercars enduro season regular, with this year marking his fifth consecutive start in the Great Race.

The Melbourne-based driver joined the MSR team at a recent test day in Queensland to cut some laps, where he impressed.

He will be back in the #10 Bendix Camaro in the coming weeks for more testing ahead of Sandown and Bathurst later in the year.



“I’ve always watched Dylan’s racing career closely and thought he has been a stellar co-driver over the years. We’re excited to now have him join the MSR team this year in Car #10 alongside Nick as we have a red hot crack at the enduros.”


“We’ve locked in Dylan O’Keeffe as our co-driver for this season’s endurance campaign, which is really cool. He is the right height so that works for me, he’s doing plenty of racing with TCR and Cup cars as well and he’s a really good fit in the MSR team. Pumped to have him onboard the Car #10 crew; he’s always done a really solid job at Bathurst and Sandown so I’m looking forward to seeing how we go.”


“When the opportunity came to join the Matt Stone Racing squad for the enduros, I jumped at the chance – they’re definitely a team on the rise. They’ve won races the last couple of seasons, and Nick’s been in great form this year. They’re a well-drilled team, very organised and methodical and it’s an enjoyable environment to be part of. It was my first time working with Nick, but we were already gelling really well during the test day. He’s obviously very experienced and has a great record at Bathurst – as well as his debut win in 2011, he’s finished on the podium a couple more times so I’m really looking forward to tapping into his knowledge base and learning as much as possible from him.”
