Jack Perkins will return with Erebus Motorsport for the 2023 enduros and a full Super2 campaign.

Perkins will race with Will Brown for a third year, with 2023 featuring two enduros at Sandown and Bathurst.

The second-generation driver will also complete a full Super2 season for Erebus Motorsport.

Perkins, 36, will run a #70 Shaw and Partners Financial Services Holden ZB Commodore.

He will race the Gen2 chassis which Richie Stanaway and Greg Murphy raced in during last year’s Bathurst 1000.

Perkins is no stranger to Super2, having made a one-off appearance at Sandown last year before the Great Race.

"To be driving with Erebus and be supported by Shaw and Partners Financial Services is the perfect fit," Perkins said.

"We’re delighted that we’ve been able to put this program together.

"Earl Evans and the team at Shaw and Partners were keen to put together a full Super2 championship after our stand-alone entry at Sandown last year and I’m really looking forward to representing them this year.

"I can’t wait to get into the year and see if we can not only win the Super2 Championship, but also get laps under my belt before we get to the enduros."

The Super2 season will help Perkins keep himself sharp given there are two enduros in 2023.


"Getting back into a full season of Super2 from a co-driving point of view is the ideal situation to make sure you’re in good condition for the endurance races," he said.

"For any co-driver, doing racing throughout the year certainly helps and I think by the time we arrive at Sandown and Bathurst, we’re going to be a lot more race fit than some of the other co-drivers.

"Winning Bathurst is an absolute dream of mine and we won’t be leaving any stone unturned in the process to get there and that starts with the Super2 program.

"I really enjoy working with Will, he’s a good kid and has really cemented himself as one of the top drivers in the category. We work well together and hopefully this is our year."

Perkins has also taken on a mentoring role with the Erebus Academy.

"The main reasons we’re committing to this Super2 championship is to win Bathurst as well as give our younger drivers an accessible mentor," Erebus CEO Barry Ryan said.

"It’s going to be great for our Academy drivers Jay and Jobe in their respective categories to have someone in their camp with the experience that Jack has.

"Working with Jack over the past couple of years, we know he has enough experience.

"But we also know that with more racing miles throughout the year, he will be an even stronger asset for the team come enduros."

The Supercars and Super2 seasons will commence in March next month.
