Erebus Motorsport has reunited Brodie Kostecki with champion sim racer Jarrad Filsell for the Eseries season.

Kostecki and Filsell will represent Erebus in the All Stars and Pro Series categories respectively.

The former is currently ninth in the real-life Supercars standings.

Kostecki scored four pole positions, three race wins and a further two podiums en route to last year’s All Stars title.

He recently scored a first and second in his first outings in the Logitech G Supercar Pro Invitational.

That series is currently led by Filsell, who led Erebus’ charge in the Pro Series in 2021.

Filsell is a four-time V8SCOPS champion, two times Bathurst winner and has more V8SCOPS race wins than any other driver.

He is yet to finish off the podium in the Invitational Series, and finished fourth in last year’s Pro Series.

Kostecki and Filsell combined to win last year’s Bathurst enduro.

The six-round season will commence on Wednesday.

“It’s pretty exciting going back into the Eseries again,” Kostecki said.

"It’s always a bit of fun and it’s a bit less serious than what we do in real life,” Kostecki said.

“Jarrad and I are teammates in other competitive sim racing series so it makes sense for him to be on board again.

“He did a great job last year and we’re both really looking forward to working together again this year.

“It should be a good year for us, we had a great year last year so I’m looking to repeat it and secure a second Eseries title.”

Filsell added: "I’ve done a lot of racing between last years Eseries and now.

"I’ve been working closely with Brodie and really just racing anything and everything.

"More recently, I’ve been racing V8s in the Logitech G Pro Invitational Series which I’m currently leading.

“That’s giving me confidence heading into this year's Eseries knowing that I can still drive and be competitive."

All rounds will be broadcast live on Fox Sports 506, Kayo, 7plus, Youtube, Twitch and Facebook.
