Erebus Motorsport has showed off a bold livery scheme which will be run by David Reynolds’ Holden ZB Commodore in the upcoming Supercars Championship season, with the outfit has affectionately named the ‘dark horse’.
With Penrite Oils staying on as the naming rights sponsor for Reynolds – winner of last year’s Bathurst 1000 with co-driver Luke Youlden – the team’s #9 entry sports a darker appearance while also sporting additional red and yellow highlights.
Reynolds will be looking to build on a strong 2017 campaign, which saw him claim two further podium finishes on top of his upset win at Mount Panorama to finish seventh overall in the Drivers’ Championship standings.
“It looks mean, it looks fast, I’m really looking forward to getting out there,” Reynolds said of his car’s new paint job.
“We’re the small team with a lot of passion and fight in us. Honestly, it’s better than I imagined and we have evolved so much as a team.”
His sentiments were echoed by Erebus Motorsport team owner Betty Klimenko, who bullishly declared her squad would compete with more fancied outfits in the coming season.
“A lot of people counted us out in the beginning and didn’t think we could make anything of it, but we just needed time to work it out,” she said.
“I always believed in my team and what they could do, now everyone else can see that too. There’s no reason we can’t be up there and be considered one of the sport’s top dogs.”
Reynolds will race alongside rookie teammate Anton De Pasquale in the 2018 season.
