Erebus Motorsport is set to bring back the Mercedes-AMG E63 for potential wild card outings in 2019, having not appeared in public for three years.
Erebus previously ran the Merecedes before bringing in the Holden Commodore in 2016, but it's set to return after testing this week at Winton Raceway this week to review its performance.
The Mercedes is set to be tested by Erebus enduro driver Luke Youlden and lead driver David Reynolds, and will be potentially piloted by Youlden in the Dunlop Super2 Series in 2019.
Like it has done on its Commodores for the past 3 seasons, the E63 will feature an Erebus badge in place of the Mercedes star.
“The car pretty much hadn’t been touched since the end of 2015,” Erebus chief executive Barry Ryan told Supercars.com.
“We put the engine back in, cleaned out the fuel tank and tidied a few things"
With plenty of parts ready to go for the E63 in the Erebus garage (with other chassis in various stages of race-readiness), it’s expected the Mercedes will be on track in 2019, potentially starting with the Dunlop Super2 category at the Superloop Adelaide 500.
