Former V8 Ute Series winner Chris Pither reunites with Dale Wood at Erebus Motorsport for the 2017 PIRTEK Enduro Cup.
The move followed a single full-time season for the Kiwi in the main game with Super Black Racing that included an AMROR ALL Pole Award at Ipswich.
Pither campaigned the Dunlop Series in 2015 and caught the eye of the Kiwi team, which subbed him into the FG X for the Phillip Island and Sydney rounds.
The Sydney-based Kiwi first cut his teeth in Formula First and Formula Ford in his native New Zealand, before competing in HQ Holdens and the Toyota Racing Series. He came to the attention of Aussie racing fans in the V8 Ute Series before moving into the Dunlop Series in a Kanga Loaders Falcon, finishing 11th in the series on debut in 2006.
Later that year, the New Zealander made his V8 Supercars Championship debut with Team Kiwi in Bahrain, before a part-season in the Dunlop Series in 2007 and his Bathurst 1000 debut as co-driver to Fabian Coulthard and Team Sirromet Wines.
2008 saw Pither make four V8 Supercar Championship round starts for Team Kiwi, before moving back into V8 Utes, taking out the championship in 2011 with the Ice Break Racing team.
He returned to V8 Supercars for the first time in five years in 2013, joining David Wall for the enduros as well as contesting the Dunlop Series. From there, Pither was announced as co-driver for Wood, continuing on in the third BJR car for the PIRTEK Enduro Cup in 2014.
His 2014 Dunlop Series campaign helped establish Pither on the Supercars scene, taking out his first race and round win at Townsville while finishing runner-up to Paul Dumbrell in the first ever Dunlop Series mini-enduro at Bathurst.
