EREBUS LOCKS IN SUPERCARS DRIVER LINE-UP

SUPERCARS young guns Will Brown and Brodie Kostecki will remain at Erebus Motorsport until at least the end of 2024, the team has confirmed.

Erebus will therefore take an unchanged driver line-up into the first two years of the Gen3 regulations, when it moves from Holden Commodores to Chevrolet Camaros.

The announcement will put an end to any enduring speculation around the future of Brown, 24, who had long been linked to a possible switch to Dick Johnson Racing.

Although yet to be confirmed by the Ford squad, it’s believed veteran Will Davison will remain in the #17 Ford next season.

Brown and Kostecki, both now 24 years of age, stepped up to the Supercars Championship with Erebus in 2021 after time in the Super2 Series.

Erebus CEO Barry Ryan expressed his delight at locking in the two young stars.

“After bringing Brodie and Will into the main game as rookies last season, they are still both the only drivers we want to lead our team into Gen3 and what will be a critical first two seasons,” Ryan said.

“They have been unquestionably loyal to Erebus and have committed to being here long term, and that’s something we’re very proud of.

“Great teams are hard to create and having our two drivers signed for our next journey together compliments the commitment and loyalty of the rest of our team and our goal to get to the top of Supercars.

“We still have a lot we are targeting for 2022 and we will be giving our all to win races and really target being the final team to win Bathurst in the current cars.”

Brown and Kostecki finished their rookie campaign eighth and ninth in the championship respectively in a year that included a memorable maiden win for Brown in Sydney’s penultimate round.

Results however have been harder to come by for Brown this season and he’s currently 15th in the standings, with Kostecki again ninth, ahead of the OTR SuperSprint at The Bend.
