Erebus Motorsport rookies Brodie Kostecki and Will Brown have admitted it was no surprise the team was favouring the Camaro for 2022, but are excited by the direction of the Melbourne-based squad for next season.

The Melbourne team confirmed it will campaign Chevrolet Camaro ZL1s in 2022, set to debut under the new Gen3 regulations.

In announcing it will stick with General Motors machinery, Erebus released renders on Wednesday, teasing a livery inspired by Kostecki's 2021 #99 Boost Mobile-backed Commodore.

Speaking to Supercars.com in an all-in driver chat from the Gold Coast, Kostecki was excited to confirm the team’s direction for Gen3.

“I think it was no secret we were going to stay with the Camaro,” the 23-year-old said.

“But it’s definitely pretty exciting and the renders look cool.

“It will be cool to see the finished product a bit further in the process.”

Joining the driver call was his Erebus teammate Brown, who echoed the anticipation for the new car.

“Like Brodie said it’s pretty cool and it’s good to keep running the GM product,” Brown said.

“The render looks awesome; I’m looking forward to seeing it all finished and what it comes up like.

“It’s good to know what direction we are heading in.”

The Betty Klimenko-owned outfit has run Commodores since 2016, with its final season in a Holden seeing Kostecki score a podium in the rain-affected Sandown finale in March.

Brown netted third in qualifying at Tailem Bend, which came after a career-best result race result of fourth, which he achieved at Symmons Plains in April.

Erebus confirmed it will build its own set of Camaros for 2022, with the team already finalising its chassis jig design and awaiting parts to arrive in July.

The Repco Supercars Championship field will return to the Northern Territory for the Merlin Darwin Triple Crown across June 18-20. Tickets are available here.

The event will be broadcast live on Foxtel and will be streamed on Kayo, and will be broadcast live and free on Seven.
