Mercedes-Benz Trucks Backs Erebus Motorsport
Mercedes-Benz Trucks will be the official truck supplier of Erebus Motorsport.
Two new Mercedes-Benz Actros prime movers will haul the Erebus Motorsport V8 Supercar transporter in 2014, the first time the German truck manufacturer has been involved in the team’s season-old V8 Supercar program.
“Erebus has demonstrated a tremendous commitment to the AMG Customer Sports program in both V8 Supercars and GT with the SLS AMG GT3, so we are pleased to be involved and transport the team around Australia in 2014,” Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Trucks Kolja Rebstock said.
For Erebus Motorsport CEO Ryan Maddison, the new Mercedes-Benz Trucks partnership is a significant landmark for his team.
“We’re delighted Mercedes-Benz Trucks has come on board, this clearly is an important step in further cementing our relationship with them both locally and globally,” Maddison said.
“Like Mercedes-Benz Trucks, we’re excited by the prospects of the 2014 season and look forward to matching our on-track performance to our presentation levels.”
Along with significant transporter branding, the two Erebus Mercedes Benz E63 AMG V8 Supercars will wear Actros signage on the license plate area of each race car.
