Erebus confirms 2021 engineering line-up
Erebus Motorsport has today confirmed that George Commins will join their team from 2021.

Commins joins as Race Engineer after making the move from Kelly Racing, where he has spent the last six years.

Before that, Commins spent time at Larkham Motorsport and Dick Johnson Racing, before making the move overseas to open wheelers, headlined by his time at Williams Formula 1.

"I am a fresh set of eyes and can potentially offer advice or direction that perhaps wasn't considered before," Commins said.

"I've always admired the team's no-nonsense approach to going racing and it's clear they are focused on achieving the best result possible with as few distractions as possible.

"I think we can be a real force in the future."

Tom Moore has also been confirmed to step up from his position of Data Engineer to Race Engineer.

"It's a really exciting time and I can't wait to sink my teeth into next year," Moore said.

"It's also great to have someone of George's calibre come in and be able to learn from his experiences."

For Moore, it won't be the first time as race engineer after spending much of the 2020 season on the radio of the #9 entry.

"This year was a really good opportunity to dip my toe in the water and get a look into the role," he said.

"I am grateful that I was able to gain that experience and it's made that transition between roles easier."

Engineer Wayne Mackie, who has a wealth of experience in developing junior drivers, also falls back into the fold after spending his race weekends engineering Will Brown with Image Racing, through the team's association with Erebus.

CEO Barry Ryan is confident the off-season changes will help he and his team fight at the front of the field.

"It's good to bring new blood to our team and we are very excited to have George on board," he said.

"He is going to bring a wealth of knowledge and fresh ideas and be a real asset to our engineering group.

"Tom has been part of our group since 2017 and we are also excited to see him step up into his new role.

"Tom was thrown in the deep end this year and proved that he is ready for the next step in his career.

"Change can force us out of doing the same tired things and without it you can't expect to see a change in the outcome, and this is something to get motivated and excited about."

The 2021 season is set to kick off at Bathurst, from February 26-28.
