EREBUS Motorsport will unveil its Repco Bathurst 1000 wildcard livery next weekend when it opens its doors to the public for the first time in almost three years.

It was pre-COVID, in November 2019, that Erebus last held an open day at its Dandenong South headquarters in Greater Melbourne.

The initiative’s return will unfold on Sunday, August 14, with a star-studded line-up of drivers and cars on hand.

Fans in attendance will be treated to the first look at the race livery which Greg Murphy and Richie Stanaway will carry at Mount Panorama in October.

The high-profile Kiwi duo ran with a test livery on their #51 Boost Mobile ZB Commodore for their opening hitout in June at Winton Motor Raceway. That represented the first time either had driven a Supercar since 2019.

Both Murphy and Stanaway will be in attendance at the open day to meet fans and sign autographs.

They will be joined by full-time drivers Will Brown and Brodie Kostecki and their respective Holden Supercars, plus co-driver Jack Perkins, Erebus Academy Super2 up-and-comer Jay Hanson and the team’s ‘Mercodore’.

V8 Sleuth will also be on the ground with a range of items including books and DVDs.

Gold coin donations on the day will go to Erebus’ official charity partner Feel the Magic.

Located at 16 Commercial Drive, the Erebus workshop will be open to fans from 11am to 2pm on August 14.

V8 Sleuth strives to both preserve and celebrate Australian motorsport’s rich history, from tracking and tracing the race-by-race histories and changing ownership of individual cars, to capturing and retelling the stories of the people who made our sport what it is today.
