PremiAir Racing locks in O’Keeffe with Golding

PremiAir Racing confirms Dylan O’Keeffe alongside James Golding for the endurance events.

21 June 2023

Dylan O’Keeffe will once again partner James Golding at PremiAir Racing in the endurance events.

O’Keeffe will join Golding in the #31 Chevrolet Camaro at the Penrite Oil Sandown 500 and Repco Bathurst 1000, after racing together to 12th place at Bathurst last year.

“This has been far from a rushed discussion, but at the same time, Dylan went above and beyond for us last year and the team were very happy with him while he also has a very good relationship with Jimmy, so it is a very natural fit and something of a ‘no brainer,’” said PremiAir Racing team principal Matt Cook.

“Dylan was with our team at the pre-season test at Sydney Motorsport Park at the beginning of the year and then again at our recent Queensland Raceway test day, with plenty of seat time at both. He was also at our opening round at Newcastle, at which he got a good feel for the 2023 team dynamic.

“We are confident he will be able to hit the ground running with us in Sandown for the start of the enduro season, and I can’t wait to see what he and Jimmy can achieve together in the #31.”

O’Keeffe added: “I really enjoyed working with Jimmy and Nulon Racing last year, so I am very excited to once again be partnering with the team to take on the Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000 in the new Gen3 Camaro.

“I have had a good number of laps in the #31 this year between the pre-season test at Sydney Motorsport Park and the recent Queensland Raceway test day, and I am doing all I can off the track to prepare for this year’s enduro season.

“Jimmy and I have a great relationship, and after having different co-drivers in my first three Bathurst starts, it’s good to have some continuity for 2023.”
