Whilst Brodie Kostecki may be new to Erebus, he is certainly no stranger to the motorsport world. Having begun his racing career at just three years old, the Perth-based driver has an unmatched level of experience heading into his first Supercar Championship.
Beginning with go-karts, Kostecki won a state title and was ranked within the top 50 karters in the country at just 10 years old. Showing plenty of promise and potential, Kostecki made the move to America in 2011 to compete in the USAC Ford Focus Series. Here, he continued to excel, winning three national championships and achieving 27 victories.
Following that success, Kostecki continued his racing career in America and joined the NASCAR K&N Pro Series during his late teens. This series saw him racing against, and beating, experienced NASCAR drivers including the likes of Ty Dillon and Bubba Wallace.
Throughout his years in America, Kostecki was also quite dominant within the iRacing world. In 2012, Kostecki led 72 out of 100 laps of the online Phoenix International Raceway resulting in him beating over 1,200 other sim racers partaking in the week-long event.
For the past three years, Kostecki has driven in the Super 2 category, originally for Kostecki Brothers Racing before signing with Eggleston Motorsport in 2020. Whilst 2020 was less than ideal for the supporting categories, Kostecki was able to prove himself and ultimately claim his position in the main-game as Anton De Pasquale’s co-driver at the 2020 Bathurst 1000. Having undertaken an attention-grabbing drive, it was clear that he was ready to debut in the 2021 Supercars championship.
2021 will see Kostecki join Erebus Motorsport alongside the equally talented Will Brown for what will be both of their rookie seasons.
