Perkins announces Erebus exit

SUPERCARS veteran Jack Perkins has announced he’ll be on the move for next year’s enduros.

Perkins has made 18 starts in the Bathurst 1000, including the past three with Erebus Motorsport.

Each of those came as co-driver to Will Brown, although the duo’s best result together came at Sandown this year, finishing fourth having started on pole position.

David Russell had already been re-signed for 2024 as Brodie Kostecki’s co-driver, while it’s been known for some time that Blanchard Racing Team refugee Todd Hazelwood is the favourite to co-drive with Jack Le Brocq, who is replacing Triple Eight-bound Brown.

V8 Sleuth understands Perkins is likely to continue co-driving elsewhere next season.

“After 3 years my time at Erebus as a Supercars Co-Driver has come to an end,” Perkins wrote via social media.

“I must thank Barry, Betty and Daniel for the opportunity to be a small part of the Erebus Motorsport team.

“I really enjoyed my time co-driving with Will and working with Brodie, Dave Russell and the rest of the team.

“Whilst we never grabbed a trophy together, we came very close at Sandown this year, with 4th!

“Thanks to all of the sponsors, partners, supporters and fans that I got to meet and work with along the journey.

“Again, congratulations to Erebus for a very successful season, winning both the Australian Touring Car Championship and the Teams’ Championship and I look forward to what the future brings for us all.”  

Perkins’ Supercars Championship record includes a race win at the 2015 Gold Coast 600 and a podium in the 2019 Bathurst 1000 – both of which came alongside James Courtney.

The 2024 enduros will comprise of the Sandown 500 on September 20-22 and the Repco Bathurst 1000 on October 10-13.
