Erebus Supercars confirmed for 2023 Super2

TWO of Erebus Motorsport’s ZB Commodore Supercars will race in the 2023 Super2 Series.

Erebus CEO Barry Ryan has confirmed his team will again collaborate with Terry Wyhoon’s Image Racing, although further details are still to be shored up.

“We have got a plan. We’re working with Terry pretty closely on how we’re going to structure it with Image Racing,” Ryan told V8 Sleuth.

“We’ll announce some things soon but there will be two cars, two ZBs running, the Erebus ZBs running and combined in some way with Image Racing.

“That’s the best answer I can give you at the moment.

“Who’s driving them will be who is best to drive them.”

Jay Hanson and Jaylyn Robotham have been driving the two Image entries this year, the latter of which run under the Erebus Academy banner.

Reef McCarthy subbed in for a cameo aboard the #999 VF Commodore last month at Bathurst when Robotham focused on making his maiden Great Race start.

Jordan Boys has also flagged some sort of program with Image in 2023, having been a Super2 regular with the team until the end of last season. This year he combined with Image/Erebus for a pair of Repco Supercars Championship wildcard outings.

Erebus owns three ZB Commodores in total.

Ryan’s confirmation of the 2023 plans for two of those cars comes hot on the heels of the Blanchard Racing Team naming Aaron Love as its inaugural Super2 driver.

Details are otherwise sparse for next year’s second-tier series.

Eggleston Motorsport will take over Team 18’s two ZBs at the end of the season, and is likely to lease another off Peter Xiberras (either the Triple Eight car currently driven by Broc Feeney, or the Bathurst wildcard which James Golding is hopping into for Adelaide).

Rising star Kai Allen has long had a 2023 Eggleston Super2 seat locked away.

It’s known that Triple Eight will not continue in Super2, and it’s understood that neither will points leader Declan Fraser despite him missing out on a main game graduation.

Tickford Racing will expand to field multiple Mustangs, while Walkinshaw Andretti United is tipped to enter in some capacity.

MW Motorsport’s plans are far from clear, although it’s understood the team has sold at least one of its existing Nissan fleet – the Altima model will only be eligible for Super3 next season.
