Erebus Motorsport is pleased to announce that David Russell will continue his partnership with Brodie Kostecki and return for his fourth endurance season with the team in 2024.
Russell and Kostecki have proven to be an exceptional pairing, having never dipped below fourth position and securing two Bathurst 1000 podiums and a Sandown 500 podium.
Most recently, Russell and Kostecki secured their highest Bathurst 1000 podium result, crossing the line second after days of topping practice and qualifying sessions.
“It’s a great feeling to be able to continue building on the last three years with Erebus and with Brodie,” Russell said.
“To know we will have that continuity next year coming off the back of a very strong endurance campaign is great and we definitely have some unfinished business.
“Myself and Brodie, as well as Erebus as a whole, have a desire to win races and that’s something that’s firmly on our minds as we go into the 2024 endurance campaign.”
Having joined the team during a transitional period back in 2021, Russell has enjoyed watching Erebus and Kostecki work their way up the Championship ladders.
“It was a bit of a clean slate for Erebus back in 2021 with two new main drivers and two new co-drivers joining the team,” Russell said.
“I’m so proud to be a part of Erebus’ journey and to have been part of that transitional phase as well as this year’s Gen3 introduction, it was a no-brainer for me to continue with the team.
“I really enjoy seeing Brodie go about his role as the main driver. He’s an incredible driver and it’s going to be great to continue our relationship and continue building off each other’s strengths.
“Our goal for next year, as it always is, is to win races and we’re both confident in our abilities to do that.”
Erebus CEO Barry Ryan is thrilled to continue the relationship with Russell and looks forward to seeing what 2024 brings for the duo.
“I consider Dave to be the best co-driver in pit lane so I’m really excited to continue working with him in 2024,” Ryan said.
“Brodie and Dave have proven themselves as one of the strongest enduro pairings on the grid and I have no doubt they’ll continue to be at the pointy end at next year’s enduro events.”
While Russell’s 2023 endurance season has concluded, Erebus Motorsport heads to the penultimate round of the Supercars Championship at Gold Coast next week, 27 – 29 October.
