The opening round of the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup is about to kick into action at Zolder, with Dylan O’Keeffe steering one of Vukovic Motorsport’s Renault Megane TCR machines.
O’Keeffe has completed a pair of official test sessions at the Belgian circuit, placing his brand-new Renault Megane RS 18th and 17th in the 22-car field, just 1.3s off the fastest time for the day – a good effort, considering the extra 10kg of ballast he is carrying as a wildcard entrant.
Australian fans wishing to watch O’Keeffe’s maiden run in the WTCR can do so via MotorTrend TV, which will live stream all sessions. Eurosport also carries coverage, which is broadcast via the Fetch TV streaming service, including a live broadcast of Race 1 and delayed broadcasts of qualifying and Race 2.
