Ashley Seward Motorsport will field three entries in the 2022 Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Championship, as it carries familiar names and partnerships in to a radically shaken up season.
With the brand-new Type 992 Cup Car being run in this year’s championship, ASM has elected for consistency in its driver line-up with Dean Cook, Geoff Emery and Scott Taylor all returning for another year with the team.
Emery missed out on the 2021 Pro-Am title in heartbreaking circumstances at Bathurst and is back for another tilt at class honours. Emery carries a brand new livery aboard his #48, shifting away from his iconic blue colours to a bold gunmetal grey, coinciding with a new deal with MJR Air Conditioning who adorn the hood.
Cook was a steady improver across the 2021 season and will fancy his chances of competing at the front of the incredibly competitive Pro-Am field. Cook continues his partnership with Zonzo Estate that saw the classy Yarra Valley winery take pride of place on a striking blue and yellow scheme from Townsville onwards last year.
Scott Taylor is also back for another year, relishing the level playing field that comes with new machinery. Taylor also came on strong in the back half of 2021 and will be eager to move further forwards this year, as he carries a livery tweak that sees an extra splash of green to his familiar scheme.
The Ashley Seward Motorsport trio will be in action at the Australian Grand Prix for round one of the 2022 Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Championship, from April 7-10.
