WELCOME TO BATHURST

 Hi guys,

Welcome to the Bathurst 1000!

There’s no denying the fact that this is the biggest and most important race of the season in V8 Supercars. It’s the greatest prize in our sport for so many reasons and every single driver down pit lane feels the same way about it.

Last year’s race was easily one of the craziest Bathurst 1000s of all time. For the fans, it had absolutely everything you could ask for. And for us, it was a big highlight for the year, coming out the end of it all in fourth place.

For the team, that was a fantastic result. It was only Erebus’s second attempt at Bathurst, so to finish fourth was a big deal for us.

It was a crazy day, with the new surface proving trickier than anyone anticipated. It made the cars behave very differently and it was actually frightening at times.

We don’t tend to throw that term around a lot, but Mount Panorama is very high speed track with absolutely no room for error. So when your car isn’t quite right and you can’t be 110% committed, it can be a dangerous place.

But for us to come through all of that and for the team to make no real mistakes was a big achievement. We nailed that part. This year we just need a bit more speed. 

Sandown showed we have the speed to contest high up the field. We just need all the little things to come together on Sunday.

But I know we have all the tools we need this year, so bring it on!

Cheers 

Will
