Betty Klimenko, Owner of Erebus Motorsport
When Betty Klimenko entered V8 Supercars as a Team Owner in 2013, she broke the mold. Giving fans a new level of accessibility, the popular motorsport matriarch loves to provide glimpses of behind-the-scenes action to the public.
Not one to shy away from a challenge, in 2016 Klimenko has new drivers, new race cars, and many new faces among her Victorian crew. With drivers David Reynolds and Aaren Russell, the team has a good balance of experience and youth. The team has also now consolidated all its operations at the Erebus Motorsport-owned facility in Moorabbin, Victoria. The final piece of the puzzle was securing the most competitive platform possible. This has seen the team transition to VF Holden Commodore chassis’ and engines.
With a long term plan for her motorsport team, the sole female V8 Supercar Team Owner has just begun to bring her dream to fruition.
