Good question, that crossed my mind too. I wonder what it means to Betty because surely she named the team.

Good point! I googled 'Erebus', it has a pretty dark background in Greek mythology ... "The perceived meaning of Erebus is "darkness"; the first recorded instance of it was "place of darkness between earth and Hades". perhaps she wants the other teams to think of Erebus Mototorsport as the Team from Hell!

When an SLS GT3 fires up and lumbers down pitlane at near idle it's pretty devilish.....

have to agree with FF there. They sound like someone's got the plug leads all mixed up.


In defence of Erebus: at least someone is tipping $$$ into motorsport. good luck to 'em.

To me they sound like they were built from bits left over in the Viper parts bin after the failed Chrysler Benz merger.
The Erebus name certainly has some conotations for Kiwis and people with an aviation background.

Pretty sure she knew what happens when you google "Erebus" I think that's how she found the name it is in one of the articles on the team..

I think it was discussed on here before once that the Benz block runs a different firing order to acustom sounds we get from our American cousins.....

I'd never heard of it before, but then I'm not a Kiwi, or a plane spotter or a researcher of airplane disasters......
