This weekend was the Adelaide 500, the final race of the 2023 Supercars Championship and we’re thrilled to announce Coca-Cola Racing by Erebus secured no not one but two titles, with Brodie Kostecki crowned series champion and Erebus Motorsport securing the team’s title!
While the final race of the season saw Brodie finish in 8th place, he did enough to maintain his series lead to secure the championship title, holding off Redbull’s Shane van Gisbergen! Brodie was also awarded the 2023 Pole Award for most pole positions of the season.
CCEP has been involved in motorsport in Australia for more than 50 years and this year is extra special, the first ever Coca-Cola supported championship win in our history supporting Supercars.
Lyndon Hunter, National Partnership Group Business Manager said our partnership with Erebus, beginning in 2018, has gone from strength to strength, this has been our first season as the title and naming rights partner of Erebus.
“This season has been an incredible journey for us and the team. The new generation of supercar presented an amazing opportunity to the team and it’s been incredible to see how dominant our drivers have been throughout the season, right from the very first race in Newcastle in March. The team and both drivers Brodie and Will Brown, have been incredible to work with,” Lyndon said.
Felicity Needham, VP Sales Away from Home said securing both the driver and team titles was a fantastic end to a successful partnership for season 2023.
“CCEP has enjoyed a close partnership with Erebus for a number of years and we’re thrilled with the results from the weekend. Congratulations to our drivers Brodie and Will Brown for an amazing season. The partnership has delivered enormous value for us a brand, and with excitement in motorsport racing at an all-time high, we can’t wait to see where this partnership takes us next year,” Felicity said.
Next year, CCEP is thrilled to welcome Jack Le Brocq into the #9 Camaro, in place of Will who is departing to join rivals Triple Eight.
