Two Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks will haul the Erebus Supercar transporter for the 2014 season, a job previously handled by a pair of Western Star 4800FXB trucks.

"Erebus has demonstrated a tremendous commitment to the AMG Customer Sports program in both V8 Supercars and GT with the SLS AMG GT3, so we are pleased to be involved and transport the team around Australia in 2014" Mercedes-Benz Managing Director Kolja Rebstock says.

"We’re delighted Mercedes-Benz Trucks has come on board, this clearly is an important step in further cementing our relationship with them both locally and globally," Erebus Motorsport CEO Ryan Maddison says.

"Like Mercedes-Benz Trucks, we’re excited by the prospects of the 2014 season and look forward to matching our on-track performance to our presentation levels," says Maddison.

This announcement marks the first time that Mercedes-Benz has partnered with the team, and follows a similar partnership announcement between Western Star and Ford Performance Racing.
