Erebus Motorsport's two-car Penrite Racing program for the 2019 Supercars season will be launched at Melbourne's Federation Square next Sunday.

The team is hosting a public event MC'd by Neil Crompton at Federation Square, opposite Flinders Street station in Melbourne's CBD, from 11am on Sunday February 10.

Drivers David Reynolds and Anton De Pasquale will be on hand to reveal their new liveries, accompanied by team owner Betty Klimenko.

Erebus announced last week that both of its Commodores will run under the same Penrite Racing banner for the first time in 2019.

Reynolds won three races on his way to fifth in the 2018 standings while De Pasquale impressed as a rookie in 20th.

It helped Erebus record its best teams' championship result, fourth, in the third season of its Holden operation.

The launch is among a host of livery reveals expected in the 10 days leading up to Supercars' pre-season test at Phillip Island on February 14.

Walkinshaw Andretti United, Team 18, 23Red Racing, two of Tickford Racing's Mustangs and DJR Team Penske are all slated for that window.

Erebus is one of three Supercars teams contesting this weekend's Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour, running a Mercedes featuring Reynolds and Luke Youlden with Scott Taylor Motorsport.

Triple Eight has its own STM Mercedes for Jamie Whincup, Shane van Gisbergen and Craig Lowndes, while a Matt Stone Racing Audi includes Todd Hazelwood.
