Erebus Motorsport has signed a new contract with Anton De Pasquale which will see him continue with Penrite Racing in 2020 and beyond.

Having signed as a rookie in 2018 and following a successful two seasons, the extension comes as no surprise.

“Erebus has always shown their faith and belief in me; asking me to join them for an evaluation day in 2017, then giving me my start in Supercars the following year,” De Pasquale said.

“They have always backed me and my ambition and I know we share the same goal.

“We have worked hard to put ourselves in a pretty strong position and I’m looking forward to working together to build on that and enjoy more success in the years to come.”

De Pasquale has already clocked his first podium; the Penrite Racing youngster finishing third in Sunday’s race at Phillip Island in April.

He narrowly missed out on another during the last race in Townsville; claiming his second-best career finish with fourth.

“Anton has been a great contributor to the success of our team over the past two seasons and he is still improving his skills and going faster every time he hits the track,” CEO Barry Ryan said.

“It is fantastic to have Anton continue with Erebus Motorsport into 2020 and we look forward to targeting race wins and Championship success well into his future.”

The extension of De Pasquale’s contract was naturally welcome by Team Owner Betty Klimenko.

“We have had a phenomenal start together and as we look to the long term, it’s brilliant to extend our journey with Anton,” she said.

“The team had confidence that he was going to do well, but he also showed confidence in us, that we were a team that could deliver him results.

“It’s exciting to think what we’ll be able to achieve as we grow together.”

Penrite Racing will take to the track this weekend for the Ipswich SuperSprint.
