Erebus Motorsport has unveiled the brand new livery which Academy racer Jobe Stewart will race in Round 4 of the Supercars Eseries.
Stewart’s car will feature the branding of the team’s streetcar arm, Erebus Garage for Wednesday night’s showdown at Phillip Island.
Up until now Stewart’s liveries have mimicked the rolling sponsorship program that has run on Will Brown’s Commodore throughout 2021, though this week will see a brand new design.
The venture’s logo, which incorporates a checkered flag to symbolise the business’ racing heritage, will take prime position on the bonnet, doors and boot of the #9 Commodore.
The livery also highlights the company’s relationships with industry leaders Hare & Forbes, Pedders Suspension & Brakes, United Speed Shop and Snap-on Tools.
“Initially concepted during COVID lockdown in 2020, Erebus Garage is an exciting and natural extension of our business,” Erebus CEO Barry Ryan said.
“We have some of the best mechanics, fabricators and designers all under one roof, so we are able to provide a top quality service.
“There are definite crossovers between the team’s race fans and Garage customers, so it’s a no-brainer to use the platform to promote the other arm of our business and its capabilities.
“We are always taking on new projects and on the hunt to find that old classic forgotten about that’s been covered for 50 years, and can provide a solution for those individuals that just aren’t sure where to begin.”
From getting an old car back on the road, small upgrades and general maintenance to complete custom rebuilds, Erebus Garage have a passion for classic cars and bringing them to life.
Their most recent work includes a custom auto conversion for Erebus boss Betty Klimenko’s 1959 Corvette, as well as current projects including an engine upgrade on a limited-edition Nissan Figaro and full restoration on a 1968 Holden HK Panel Van.
Erebus Garage has also been well recognised for their work on competitor Scott Pye’s 1956 Ford F100, which includes a Coyote swap, heavily updated chassis, custom bodywork and complete overhaul of running gear; including United Speed Shop’s independent front end with Pedders coil-over suspension and big brakes.
Stewart will head to Phillip Island with teammate Jarrad Filsell for the Pro Series, with the drivers sitting 17th and 2nd in the championship respectively.
Meanwhile, Championship leader Brodie Kostecki will head to Monza after a calendar change sees the All Stars moving away from the previous oval circuits.
Qualifying will kick off this Wednesday at 7:00pm AEST and will be broadcast live on Facebook, Twitch and Youtube.
Racing coverage will follow from 7:30pm AEST and be broadcast live on Fox Sports, Kayo, 7 Plus and Sky NZ.
