Favourites emerge for MSR co-drives

ANOTHER two pieces of the 2024 Supercars co-driver puzzle appear set to fall into place.

Dylan O’Keeffe and Cameron Crick seem destined to join Matt Stone Racing’s enduro roster, given their presence at the team’s mid-season test at Queensland Raceway today.

MSR had two vacancies to fill after Jaylyn Robotham was snapped up by Brad Jones Racing and Jayden Ojeda linked with Erebus Motorsport, although the latter is yet to be officially confirmed as Jack Le Brocq’s co-driver.

V8 Sleuth believes O’Keeffe is in line to partner Nick Percat in the #10 Bendix Camaro, with Crick to team up with Cameron Hill in the #4 entry.

A wildcard involving Crick had at one stage been on the cards, but it’s understood that is not proceeding – for this year at least. A co-drive call-up would represent the Eggleston Motorsport Super2 driver’s main game debut.

Carrera Cup/TCR regular O’Keeffe by contrast has four Bathurst 1000 starts under his belt; two with PremiAir Racing, one with Team Sydney, and one with Kelly Racing.

MSR did evaluate Chris van der Drift at a pre-season test but decided against pursuing the veteran Kiwi as a co-driver.

The Yatala squad could be a dark horse for the Great Race based on the impressive pace its two Camaros showed at the season-opening Bathurst 500.

Also testing at QR today is Triple Eight, Dick Johnson Racing, PremiAir Racing and Brad Jones Racing rookie Jaxon Evans.
