Without doubt, Bathurst is the most iconic Australian car race

It is where legends are born; the race that appears on the “bucket list” of most race fanatics; the pinnacle of Australian motoring racing.
The 2017 race didn’t disappoint. With challenging conditions, cars and drivers alike were tested to the limits. However, 2017 was very different.
The winning team wasn’t one of the major factory backed teams. Erebus motorsport, privately owned by Betty Klimenko, wrote itself into the record books by being the first female owned and managed team to win this iconic race.
Driven by passion, Betty treats every member of her team like a family member. Erebus drivers,
David Reynolds, and co-driver Luke Youlden came together for that race and focused on one thing: The Win.
An Erebus sponsor since 2015, Penrite Oil says it is the big surprise found “at the pointy end of Australia’s Great Race.”
An Australian owned and family run business, very much like Erebus, Penrite says it is punching well above its weight and showing why its earned its position as Australia’s Number One Premium Performance oil brand.
Every product used by the Erebus Team, from the engine to the radiator, to the brakes to the steering mechanism, is a standard product line says Penrite, available from your favourite automotive retail store. Penrite users are used to this type of quality, it says, which is why Penrite is the preferred brand of more consumers than any other oil brand sold.
Erebus Team Manager Barry Ryan worked extensively with Penrite’s Technical Manager, Brendan Hughes, to select the correct product to provide superior performance, under extreme conditions.
“Erebus have been using Penrite’s racing range across all of our cars since our initial Bathurst partnering in 2015,” Barry said.
“We are currently running Penrite 10 tenths Racing 5 (5w-30) in our supercars. We believe the combination of quality Australian owned and made products for Australian conditions and Penrite’s constant developments is a crucial piece to the team’s great success.”

Erebus exclusively uses:
• Engine Oil – 10 Tenths Racing 5W-30
