Erebus Motorsport retains Russell and Perkins for Bathurst

David Russell and Jack Perkins return to Erebus Motorsport for Bathurst in 2022.

11 February 2022

Erebus Motorsport has re-signed David Russell and Jack Perkins as its endurance co-drivers for 2022.

Russell and Perkins joined the team last season alongside Brodie Kostecki and Will Brown respectively, with Russell and Kostecki finishing in third place at Mount Panorama in December.

“It was great to be able to achieve a podium last year at Bathurst,” said Russell.

“It gives you confidence because you know that you’ve put in the hard yards but you have to continue to work hard and that’s definitely what we’ll be doing this year.

“Going back-to-back with Erebus is definitely beneficial because I have an understanding of the characteristics of the car and understand how Brodie and the team work.

“The partnership last year was great so I’m really looking forward to working closer with the team and heading back to the Mountain later in the year.”

Perkins and Brown were also in contention at Bathurst in 2021 before power steering failure.

“We feel like we have a bit of unfinished business after last year so I’m delighted to be back driving alongside Will,” said Perkins.

“Stability and continuity are such an important part of success at Bathurst.

“For Will and I to be able to roll on in terms of seat position and work with all of the same crew, we’re certainly in a good position.

“The way that both Will and Brodie performed throughout last season really proved that they’re going to be competitive this year.

“It’s going to be great to watch in the first half of 2022 and I can’t wait to play my part in the later half of the season.”
