November 8, 2019 - DAYCO RACER TAKES CARRERA CUP PRO-AM RUNNER-UP SPOT

Dayco Australia joined forces with experienced Tag Heuer Pro-Am racer Roger Lago in the 2019 Payce Porsche Carrera Cup at eight closely fought rounds held across Australia from February to October.

Lago entered the series finale on the streets of Surfers Paradise from October 25 to 27 locked in a three way battle for the Pro-Am championship after a highly competitive season.

It was never going to be an easy task for the Brisbane based racer as this was his first time competing on the concrete walled Surfers Paradise Street Circuit, but the Dayco racer made the most of the exciting final round with strong progress in both practice and qualifying.

After a great start in the opening sprint race, Lago’s weekend was almost over when he narrowly missed Pro-Am points leader Damian Flack who crashed heavily at turn 11.

Lago’s pace in the second sprint race on the Saturday was faster than his qualifying lap times, the Dayco Porsche racer engaging in a close battle with his two other Pro-Am title challengers, Flack and Liam Talbot, managing to keep Flack at bay all the way to the chequered flag. This would prove pivotal to securing the season runner-up result.

A great start in the third and final race on Sunday saw Lago drive a smart race to finish his season with an unscathed car and second place in the 2019 Tag Heuer Porsche Carrera Cup Australia Championship. The Pro-Am title went to Talbot, who finished the season 30 points ahead of Lago with Flack eight points behind in third.

According to Dayco Vice President, Aftermarket Asia Pacific, Arnold Mouw, Dayco’s involvement in Porsche Carrera Cup Australia during 2019 has been rewarding.

“We extend our congratulations to Roger Lago and his team on their efforts this season. The television and event coverage certainly exceeded our expectations and we have been able to leverage our involvement through our company’s Australian and global marketing activities as well. Our customers love the car and we look forward to the 2020 season,” Mr Mouw stated.

The 2020 Payce Porsche Carrera Cup Australia Championship will once again be held in support of major Supercars events as follows:

Round 1 - Superloop Adelaide 500, Feb 20-23

Round 2 - Australian F1 Grand Prix, Mar 12-15

Round 3 - Watpac Townsville 400, Jun 26-28

Round 4 - BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown, Jul 17-19

Round 5  - Sydney Super Night, Aug 28-30

Round 6  - The Bend OTR 500, Sep 18-20

Round 7 -  Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, Oct 8-11

Round 8 - Vodafone Gold Coast 600, Oct 20-22

October 8, 2019 - DAYCO TRIPLE IMPACT AT AUSTRALIA’S BIGGEST MOTOR RACING EVENT


Dayco, a world leading engine components and drive systems supplier for the automotive, industrial and aftermarket industries, will be seen across three major motorsport categories at Australia’s most famous motor racing event, the 2019 Bathurst 1000 held from October 10 to 13 at Mount Panorama.

Dayco’s premium event and television coverage during 2019 continues with the Bathurst debut of the Monster Energy Tickford Racing Ford Mustang driven by Cameron Waters. The Dayco sponsored driver is currently 5th in the Supercar Championship and has gained six podium finishes so far this season in his striking matt black Mustang.

Long term Dayco Ambassador David Russell returns to Supercars at the Mountain this weekend as well, joining forces with Matt Stone Racing (MSR) and Sherrin Rentals in the Dunlop Super2 Series 250 kilometre Bathurst endurance race to be held on Saturday October 12. This weekend’s Super2 race at Bathurst will reunite the driver (Russell) and sponsor (Sherrin Rentals) that debuted at Mount Panorama together a decade ago.

Since then, “Dayco Dave” Russell has gone on to forge a successful career as an endurance racing specialist both in Australia and internationally, bringing an enviable Super2 Series pedigree to this weekend’s nationally televised Bathurst Super2 race.

In 2010 Russell raced to his first Supercar pole position and scored both race wins in a clean sweep of the Bathurst Super2 Series round, following that up with second at the Bathurst Super2 Series round in 2011. Russell has qualified and finished in the top three in all of his Super2 Series races at Mount Panorama during his career.

Along with his Super2 Series / DVS experience, Russell celebrated a decade of main series Bathurst Supercar endurance co-driver racing last season, having competed there with Fernandez Racing (1 season), Kelly Racing (2 seasons), Nissan Motorsport (5 seasons) and last season with Tickford Racing. Dayco has proudly been a part of the last seven Bathurst campaigns with Russell.

The third high profile Dayco motorsport marketing platform for Australia’s biggest motor racing weekend is the debut of the Dayco Carrera Cup Porsche at Mount Panorama in the hands of Tag Heuer Pro-Am Championship leader Roger Lago.

Lago has enjoyed an outstanding Porsche Carrera Cup season which has included the first outright Pole position for a Pro-Am driver, three race wins and consistent top five performances to keep him within grasp of the Tag Heuer Pro Am title in this penultimate round of the 2019 Championship.

According to Matt Stone, MSR Team Principal, “It’s good to have David Russell back in the team. We ran together in the 12 hour at start of year and it’s good to be able to continue the relationship in Super2. We have competed against Russell in Super2 for years so are well aware of his abilities and what he will bring.”

 “I have had some great Super2 races at Bathurst and together with such a strong team, I am looking forward to a very strong race this weekend,” David Russell said.

For Dayco Asia Pacific Vice President- Aftermarket, Arnold Mouw, the company is delighted to have such a strong presence at this major Australian motor racing event.

“It will be impossible to miss the Dayco brand message at Bathurst this year – that’s for sure! We have progressively grown our involvement in Australian and international motorsport each year together with our ambassador, David Russell, and we are delighted to see him back behind the wheel of a Supercar this year at Mount Panorama.

 “Together with Roger Lago in his stunning Carrera Cup Porsche and Cameron Waters in his Tickford Racing Mustang, we have an enviable presence at this event which is as big as it gets in this country, while also being an event that gains incredible Asia Pacific and global coverage as well,“ Mr Mouw stated.

“I wish all of our drivers and teams a safe and highly successful weekend at Bathurst,” He added.
