Brodie Kostecki to step up with Erebus
Brodie Kostecki will make a full time move into the Supercars championship for the 2021 season after being confirmed in the second Erebus Motorsport Commodore.
Kostecki completes a new-look like up for the team alongside TCR Australia title winner Will Brown, with both driver having been front-runners in Super2 this season.
The 23-year-old – who took a top ten finish for Erebus at Bathurst alongside Anton De Pasquale – replaces David Reynolds after his departure from the team earlier this week.
“It’s very exciting for me and for the team as well, we are all really looking forward to going racing next year,” he said. “I’ve been fortunate enough to be with the team for a while now and I think that’s a great thing going into next year.
“Though my first year in Supercars it will be my second year with the team, and we are all looking forward to making the next step together.
“Will and I will definitely push each other hard as we’re both very hungry and eager to get results. We are already part of the family and that’s really important; we all have a good time, but we are all still hungry to get results.”
Erebus CEO Barry Ryan admitted that Kostecki was the ideal option to come in and replace Reynolds for 2021.
“Brodie is a hard-arse racer and exactly what we need in our team,” he said. “He is more than ready and both he and Will are far beyond where we expect any young driver to be.
“We are really excited to have two young but familiar faces pushing each other and if we can give them the car then they can certainly deliver the results.”
