Erebus Academy Wildcard for Winton, The Bend


The Erebus Motorsport fielded Super2 team will field Jordan Boys in a ZB Commodore for both outings.

Winton will mark the boys’ solo debut in the main game, following his first Bathurst 1000 start with Brad Jones Racing in 2020.

He also has four seasons of Super2 experience with Image Racing between 2018 and 2021 and will return to BJR for a second crack at the Great Race later this year.

“My goal has always been to run in the main game and I’m supporting myself at the highest level to prove I’m capable,” Boys said.

“I don’t feel like I’ve been able to deliver what I think I can do and I need to do that to take the next step to a full-time senior safari.

“It’s a brutal sport and every driver wants a seat, but with the right team and the right car I think we’ll be competitive at Winton and I can prove I can mix it up with the best.

“It’s really exciting to go wildcard alongside Image and Erebus as I’ve been associated with them for so long.

“Image Racing is like family to me, so it’s great to take this step with [team owners] Sponge [Wyhoon]it’s something we’ve been talking about for a long time.

“We’re really excited to have a chance and we’re both pretty confident we can do a good job.”

Wyhoon backed Boys to raise some eyebrows in both of his wildcard outings.

“Jordan has campaigned very successfully in recent years at Super2 level and has had success as a co-driver,” he said.

“After serious discussions with Jordan and [Erebus CEO] Barry Ryan, we all agreed that his talent hasn’t really been showcased in a format that represents his exceptional driving ability.

“Therefore, a decision was made earlier this season that he would focus all his energy on a two-round wildcard campaign and show what he is really capable of and I think he will surprise quite a few of them.”

The boys will test at Winton next Tuesday ahead of the Winton SuperSprint on May 21-22.
