Engine belt and component manufacturer, Dayco, will return to Australia’s Supercars Championship for the 2022 season, teaming for the second time with Blanchard Racing Team (BRT) and driver Tim Slade.
Dayco will have a higher profile on BRT’s CoolDrive Auto Parts’ Ford Mustang, with the name emblazoned on the windscreen banner.
The team will also enter the 2022 season with a new engine supplier, renowned Ford Performance engine development and tuning expert, Rob Herrod.
According to Dayco Vice President – Aftermarket Asia Pacific, Arnold Mouw, all is set for the company’s biggest season yet in motorsport.
“All of us at Dayco here and across the world were so impressed with BRT’s debut season. The work that has taken place since then to make this Supercar even faster has been outstanding and we are ecstatic to be across the windscreen for the 2022 season,” said Mouw.
“We share the expectation of the sport’s fans and our trade customers for the new season, and we look forward to watching Tim Slade and the team once again give the rest of the field a real challenge, armed with a brand new powerplant and several other engineering developments.”
Team Owner, Tim Blanchard, welcomed Dayco back for the new season.
“We have been fortunate to have retained our foundation sponsor group and to see Dayco increase their presence on the car this year,” said Blanchard.
“There is no doubt that our Supercar collaboration on the track has also generated increased interest in Dayco’s quality aftermarket product range through CoolDrive Auto Parts. We have no doubt that this trend will continue as the Supercars season progresses.
The 13-round championship will visit race and street circuits across Australia and New Zealand from March to December. It will be the final season of the current specification Supercars, with the new Gen3 car regulations to be introduced from 2023.
