Dylan O’Keeffe will make his Team Sydney debut in the upcoming Cash Converters Eseries.

O’Keeffe was recently confirmed alongside Garry Jacobson in the #22 PremiAir Hire Commodore for November’s Repco Bathurst 1000.

On Tuesday, the team confirmed O’Keeffe will fill in for Jacobson in the opening two rounds of the Eseries.

O’Keeffe, an accomplished sim racer, will line up against current main game and Super2 stars in the All Stars category.

The 23-year-old was keen to get started, but was wary of the challenges oval tracks will provide.

“I’ve been spending a lot of time on the simulator lately, it’s a good way to maintain my co-ordination and concentration while real-life motorsport is on hold,” O’Keeffe said.

“However, I haven’t spent a lot of time doing oval races, so I’ll be doing some practice over the next couple of days to make sure I’m ready to go.

"I think the ovals will really level up the playing field… there will be slipstreaming, bump-drafting, lots of crashes and the races will come right down to the wire.

“It will be very entertaining for everyone to watch on TV and definitely a good thing to keep everyone occupied during lockdown.”

The Cash Converters Supercars Eseries will kick off this Wednesday.
