Boost Mobile has been confirmed as the primary backers of Brodie Kostecki’s debut Supercars campaign with Erebus Motorsport — the 23-year-old’s striking livery unveiled in full earlier this morning.
The announcement rekindles the telco’s relationship with Kostecki, having backed the ‘wildcard’ Bathurst 1000 campaign of he and his cousin Jake Kostecki in 2019.
“I’m extremely proud to have represented Boost for a number of years, but it’s even more special to see them wrapped all over my #99 Holden,” said Kostecki.
“I can’t wait to get back in the car at Bathurst, the car looks fast and I’m hoping we can start where we left off last time.”
The news fills in one blank regarding full-time sponsors at Erebus Motorsport. Following the departure of David Reynolds, Penrite Oils departed, too — reuniting with Reynolds at Kelly Grove Racing. It’s yet to be confirmed which brand will back Kostecki’s teammate, Will Brown.
“To have Boost Mobile not only join our team, but become a major partner is fantastic for everybody involved,” Erebus CEO Barry Ryan said.
“Boost Mobile are a fantastic company that not only provides a great service but has a real passion for what they do and connecting to the youth market.
“Having Boost Mobile onboard shows the strength and direction the team is heading, and we are more than confident Brodie can have the Boost Mobile Commodore near the front of the field.”
“We have long been a support of Brodie and when the opportunity to partner with Erebus and Brodie came up, we jumped at it,” added Boost Mobile founder Peter Adderton.
“Getting behind young talent has been a key to Boost’s success, and I have always said if Supercars fans support Boost Mobile we will invest back in the sport.
“We have seen tremendous support for our brand amongst a lot of fans which enables us to support young drivers like Brodie.”
