Ash Walsh set to join Erebus in 2015

Ipswich driver Ash Walsh is expected to be named as the replacement for the departing Lee Holdsworth at Erebus Motorsport.

Walsh’s appointment will see the 26-year-old move into the #4 E63 AMG for the 2015 season in what will be his first full-time stint in the main game.

Runner-up in the Dunlop Series last year and leading the second tier series in the Matt Stone Racing-prepared Falcon FG until the Queensland Raceway round in August, Walsh has enjoyed enduro drives with DJR for the last two seasons.

Walsh is moving to the Yatala-based Erebus outfit following the shock departure of Holdsworth.

Speedcafe.com has previously sought comment from Erebus however our inquiries remain unanswered.

In a late season twist, Holdsworth is headed for Charlie Schwerkolt’s #18 Ford after the accomplished former long-time GRM racer did not come to terms on a contract extension with Erebus.

Jack Perkins has announced that he will depart after serving just one season behind the wheel of the #18 Falcon.
