De Pasquale: Erebus’ rookie on the rise


If the name is not eye catching enough then his results thus far should be. Anton De Pasquale was perhaps a surprise rookie selection at Erebus Motorsport this season, but he is already rewarding those who’ve placed faith in him as we exmaine in SupercarXtra Magazine issue #105.

De Pasquale has turned heads up and down pitlane in his rookie campaign. Maybe this is a surprise to some but to those who’ve supported the 22-year-old throughout his career to date, there are no surprises to see here.

While De Pasquale may be the least experienced in Supercars terms after just two seasons in the Dunlop Super2 Series, he arrived on the scene with an impressive resume and the support and encouragement of not only his team but experienced Supercars figures Mark Larkham and Paul Morris.

While most main-game aspirants ply their trade in the Dunlop Super2 Series over three or four seasons and usually tackle at least one enduro campaign before graduation to Supercars, De Pasquale has proved a quick learner by outclassing his fellow rookies in the early stages of 2018.

“Adelaide was my first start on the grid,” he says.

“Although we were five rookies I was the only one making my first start. But at the end of the day we’re still all quite equal. I still feel like I have a lot to learn and I’m still pretty fresh.”
