Supercars championship leader Brodie Kostecki has admitted that his Coca-Cola Racing squad is “a band of misfits”.
The Perth-born rebel racer is rejoicing in Erebus Motorsport’s unconventional approach, led by colourful team owner Betty Klimenko and outspoken team boss Barry Ryan.
In the latest PARKED UP PLUS podcast, Kostecki doesn’t shy away from his squad’s unorthodox culture as he explains why he and teammate Will Brown are taking the Gen3 fight to Triple Eight. Listen here:
With new big-brand backing from Coca-Cola, Erebus has jumped out of the Gen3 box to become an early championship contender with its self-built Chevrolet Camaros, matching GM titan team Triple Eight and shading the top Ford teams.
After a pair of breakthrough wins at the Australian Grand Prix, Kostecki leads the drivers’ title heading to his home event at Wanneroo Raceway in Perth this weekend amid new tweaks to the evolving Gen3 rules.
Known as a hard racer, the burly Sandgroper also explains why he is rejoicing about reigning champion Shane van Gisbergen’s decision to re-sign for at least two more years.
Kostecki is putting his NASCAR aspirations on hold for the chance to challenge SVG in wheel-to-wheel combat on a regular basis.
PARKED UP PLUS also dissects the latest Gen3 updates – and the left-field debate about deciding the pit lane order at each event.
There’s also news about the future of the iconic Targa Tasmania in the wake of a searching review of how tarmac road rallies are run.
