An official website isn't going to get involved in reporting scuttlebutt, irrespective of how true it is. No mention on either of the other two main Australian motorsport sites, Auto Action or V8Sleuth, either.

As with any team, drivers have departed Erebus for differing reasons of either their or the team's volition over the years, but personality clash has only been the reason in a couple of cases.

So why is it on Speedcafe, and no other media outlets?

Good pick up by Jack65!

Is this a bit of pre season marketing?

Why no updates, since the story broke?

Lawyers at forty paces in a Mexican stand off?

All very interesting!

Hopefully Speedcafe haven't just made it up.

If true, with no reason to doubt Speedcafe, it is certainly very curious. You have not only David Reynolds leaving after Bathurst success, Penrite leaving after Bathurst success, Peter Adderton's Boost Mobile leaving Erebus before championship success, but Will Brown leaving during championship success and Brodie Kostecki leaving after championship success.

Very weird for a top-shelf operation which builds demonstrably fast race cars.

Nothing on Mr Hazelwoods Facebook page about driving for Erebus.

Plot thickens.

I might ring Speedcafe, and tell them Barry is going to run for president of the USA.

Kostecki Stuff - Fake News?

Is this Kostecki stuff all FAKE news?

It seems it was started by Speedcafe then other sites blindly followed.

I am intrigued that the authoritative Auto Action has still not mentioned it.
Does this not say something?

I doubt it, the new editor there would likely have gone gotten Supercars thoughts before pressing go on it, he’s always across as Supercars fan and keeping his mates first, loyalty to the audience second.

Unlikely AA are going to give a leg up to an AVL story after he went after them them last year over the Edward’s announcement .

The aligned media’s sensitivity to being called out shows how far journalism in Australian Motorsport has fallen

Probably because there have been no further developments.

Reynolds left at the end of 2020, three years after he won Bathurst. The relationship between team and driver deteriorated when he and some of his entourage carried on like pork chops during the time the team was based in Queensland for 3 or 4 months due to Covid lockdowns in Melbourne. Some of this came to the fore the next year when Reynolds went all anti-vax and ended up being benched for a few rounds.

Penrite presumably felt Reynolds was a more marketable commodity and thus followed the driver. Fast forward to 2023 and their position had clearly changed, hence it remained with Grove when Reynolds went to Team 18.

As good a season as Erebus was having in 2023, Triple Eight is the biggest team in the category, quite understandable that Brown's head was turned.

It may well turn out to be the story of the summer, but after 24 hours those who are going to read it will have done so. I am sure more stories will appear if it comes to fruition.

Maybe, but Supercars were never going to comment nor endorse the story, it is between Kostecki and Erebus, Supercars would have no involvement.

It is to do with Supercars by association and if they didn’t want something being outed it wouldn’t be, by their aligned media at least anyway.

There isn’t a sport in Australia that has such a weak and cowering media as motor racing.
More like a collective of PR syncophants than a credible and objective source of news.
They should be ashamed but they obviously have no shame.
