Since its inception in 2011, Erebus Motorsport has made its mark in Australian motorsport competing across several categories including V8 Supercars and GT racing, tasting much success along the way.
The team set upon its journey with the purchase of a new Victorian facility and an SLS AMG GT3 in 2011. Erebus Motorsport’s first year saw success from the outset with wins in the Australian GT Championship at Phillip Island and Bathurst with Peter Hackett behind the wheel.
Expanding to a second SLS AMG GT3 in 2012, the team finished second in its inaugural Bathurst 12 Hour, before scooping six races wins and four rounds wins in the seven-round Australian GT Championship with Peter Hackett, Maro Engel, and Bernd Schneider piloting the gullwing.
2013 saw the team launch its V8 Supercars campaign with three E63s driven by Lee Holdsworth, Tim Slade, and Maro Engel, marking a huge milestone in the history of the team. Days later, the team kicked off the racing season in fine fashion with a win at the Bathurst 12 Hour in February with Thomas Jaeger, Bernd Schneider, and Alexander Roloff.
The win at Mount Panorama was followed by six race wins and three round wins in the Australian GT Championship with Craig Baird and Jack Le Brocq. The team then headed to Zhuhai, China where they scored a race win with Mika Hakkinen and Matthew Solomon, before heading to Macau where Maro Engel secured pole position in the SLS AMG GT3.
2013 also saw the team race a Mygale M08 in the Australian Formula 3 Championship with Jack Le Brocq and Andre Heimgartner, and a Holden V8 Ute with Stephen White in the V8 Ute Racing Series.
In only its second season in V8 Supercars, Erebus Motorsport scored its maiden V8 Supercars win with Lee Holdsworth at Winton Raceway in 2014. The team finished out the year as the Australian GT Championship winners, picking up eight race wins and two round wins with Richard Muscat piloting the SLS AMG GT3 along the way. An inaugural V8 Supercars pole position at Homebush provided a fitting end to the successful year.
The team also prepared two V8 Utes in 2014 driven by Adam Marjoram and Jesse Dixon in the V8 Ute Racing Series, scoring multiple podiums and a race win at Barbagallo with Dixon.
Last year the team celebrated wins across multiple categories including a V8 Supercars win with Will Davison at Barbagallo Raceway, a win in the Australian GT Championship with Morgan Haber at Highlands Motorsport Park, and several podium finishes and a win in the V8 Ute Racing Series with three Erebus Motorsport-prepared Utes driven by Craig Dontas, Adam Marjoram, and Kim Jane.
In 2016, under the watchful eye of the team owner Betty Klimenko, Erebus Motorsport will once again push the boundaries of Australian motorsport. The team will campaign two VF Holden Commodore Supercars in the hands of David Reynolds and Aaren Russell, and two AMG GT GT3s and an SLS AMG GT3 in the Australian GT Championship.
