Erebus Motorsport came into existence in 2011 with ambitions for world domination. By world domination, we mean Team Owner Betty Klimenko set her sights on succeeding in the fast world of motorsport.
With a number of accomplishments in GT’s under her belt, both on home soil and internationally, there were no plans in stopping there. 2013 saw Betty take over a Supercars team and rebrand it as her own.
Fast forward to 2016 and a few triumphs later, Erebus moved from Queensland to Melbourne, and over the next season solid foundations were laid. The team recruited, not in quantity, but quality, until it was capable of going toe-to-toe with the biggest names in racing.
2017 was a pivotal year for the team which saw Erebus cleared of their “underdog” label as they conquered the Bathurst 100 and became the second team in history to win both the Bathurst 12 Hour and the Bathurst 1000.
The following year Erebus scored three more wins, five pole positions and multiple podiums on their way to securing fourth in the 2018 Team’s Championship – a best ever for the squad!
2019 saw the squad look to their future, signing rising star Will Brown on a multi-year deal. Brown scored second in the Super2 Series in 2020 in an ex-Erebus Commodore before stepping up to the main game this year.
He is joined by Brodie Kostecki who also steps up from the feeder series in what will be an all-new line-up for the squad. 2021 brings about plenty of changes for the team and is sure to be one to remember.
