Pole Positions

Erebus Motorsport came into existence in 2011 with team owner Betty Klimenko setting 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, Betty was hungry for more and as a result took over a Supercars team to rebrand it as her own.

Fast forward to 2016, 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.

The following year was pivotal for the team which saw Erebus cleared of their “underdog” title as they conquered the 2017 Bathurst 1000 and became the second team in history to win both the Bathurst 12 Hour and the Bathurst 1000.

2018 proved to be another successful year for the team as 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!

Erebus began to look to their future in 2019, 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 in 2021.

Most recently, Brown was joined by Brodie Kostecki who also stepped up from the feeder series to create an all-new lineup for the squad in 2021. 

The duo proved to be genuine contenders throughout the year concluding their rookie seasons with a win and six podiums between them, including a Bathurst 1000 third place finish.

2022 sees the team looking to continue their momentum from last season. Stability across the entire team sees Erebus more determined than ever heading into the 2022 Supercars season.
