Tekno Autosports has announced New Zealander Jonny Reid will co-drive alongside Michael Patrizi in the #91 Holden at the Sandown 500 and Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 endurance races.

Reid joins fellow New Zealand driver Scott McLauglin, who it was confirmed earlier this year will team up with Jonathon Webb in the #19 entry.

“Jonny completes another part of the puzzle for us, we’re delighted to have him join the team for this season’s endurance rounds,” said team manager Bruce Jenkins.

“Jonny’s performance in testing last year and his professionalism make him an ideal candidate for the seat.

“I am confident that both Jonny and Scott will help Tekno secure some great results come Sandown and Bathurst.”

Reid currently competes in the Porsche City Index Carrera Cup Australia and the V8 SuperTourers Championship and was teammates with Patrizi in the Porsche Carrera Cup last year at McElrea Racing.

The 28-year-old also tested for Tekno Autosports in 2011 and is excited by the pace shown by the cars this year.

“I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to drive with Tekno,” Reid said.

“They have been really impressive this year, given the amount of work they have accomplished to get both cars up to speed prior to the start of the season. I am really looking forward to showing what Michael and I can do.”
