Shae Davies and co-driver Chris van der Drift will run in the colours of Ultra Air at the Great Race, the air conditioning company taking over as the primary sponsor of the car.

“We are very excited to be affiliated with Erebus Motorsport and are looking forward to the big race next weekend,” Ultra Air CEO Tony Licastro said.

“We have had a small involvement in Supercars previously, and were excited to find out that car #4 would be driven by Shae Davies and there was an opportunity to get on board.

“It is definitely something we are looking at continuing; the partnership with Erebus brings great exposure and networking opportunities to our business.

“We would like to wish Erebus the best of luck next weekend, and we hope Ultra Air’s affiliation will rub off in a positive direction with a podium finish.”

Erebus boss Betty Klimenko hoping to welcome the new backer with a good result at Mount Panorama, after Davies and van der Drift finished 23rd at the Sandown 500, which was the Kiwi’s Supercars debut.

“Bathurst is such a standalone event and is our biggest race of the year, so what better way to celebrate than with a new look for car #4,” Klimenko said.

“It’s fantastic to have Ultra Air on board and it’s always exciting when you can welcome a new sponsor to the team.

“We look forward to growing our relationship and also putting on a show for them next weekend. We want to go well, and I believe we can do well.”
