Team Sydney has confirmed Jonathon Webb and Dylan O'Keeffe will join Fabian Coulthard and Garry Jacobson for November's Repco Bathurst 1000.

Webb, who owns the team, will line up in the #19 Local Legends entry with Coulthard.

Coulthard joined the team in 2021, having moved from the Shell V-Power Racing Team.

The Coulthard-Webb combination will see a Bathurst podium finisher and Bathurst winner share the same car.

Webb won the Great Race in 2016 alongside Will Davison, with Coulthard finishing third 12 months later.

"I’m looking forward to attacking the mountain with Fabian and Local Legends," team managing director Webb said.

"I’ve been impressed with Fab’s approach in setup of his racecar and I feel we will be in a competitive position."

O’Keeffe is a major coup for the team, with the driver making an impressive debut at Mount Panorama last year.

He finished 11th alongside Andre Heimgartner in the #7 NED Whisky Kelly Racing Mustang.

O’Keeffe boasts an impressive CV; he finished fifth in both the TCR and Dunlop Super2 series in 2019.

After placing sixth in the 2017 Porsche Carrera Cup Australia series, he improved to third in 2018.

He has also tasted success on the mountain, winning Class B at the Bathurst 12 Hour in 2017.

"We welcome Dylan to Team PremiAir Hire to partner Garry," Webb added.

"Dylan was impressive in his Bathurst debut last year, he’s a professional and hungry up and comer.

"Our team manager Geoffrey [Slater] and I believe Garry and Dylan will complement one another technically and that they are a good match to secure results."

The Repco Bathurst 1000 will be held across November 4-7.
