David Reynolds’ Erebus Motorsport Commodore will continue to enjoy naming rights backing from Penrite Oil in 2018.

The Australian oil brand joined Erebus as a sponsor for the 2015 Bathurst 1000 and will start its third full season with the now Melbourne-based team next year.

“We are excited to continue to build our relationship,” said Erebus Motorsport General Manager Barry Ryan.

“Penrite and Erebus are two brands that share a passion for racing and performance.

“Penrite Oil has been an iconic brand for more than 90 years and we’re confident in the products they supply to us.”

Penrite’s stint with Erebus has coincided with the team’s very best form, especially Reynolds’ and Luke Youlden’s breakthrough Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 win this year.

Reynolds signed a new deal earlier this year to remain at the Betty Klimenko-owned squad for at least another season, when he will be joined by rookie Anton De Pasquale.

Youlden’s renewal as a Pirtek Enduro Cup co-driver was announced last week, while Erebus has also committed to upgrading to the ZB Commodore shape next year. comment policy reserves the right to remove comments that are off-topic, abusive and ban users who do not follow the comment policy.
