Bathurst 1000 Stats
Anton De Pasquale has turned plenty of heads already in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship as he looks to add more podiums and possibly a race win to his resume in 2020.
Linking with Erebus Motorsport after two years in the Dunlop Super2 Series, De Pasquale has produced a string of impressive performances.
De Pasquale impressed Erebus Motorsport during his rookie years in the class and has been signed to race the #99 alongside Dave Reynolds until 2021.
After winning the Australian Formula Ford Championship in 2013, the teen from Melbourne set his sights on the European open-wheelers, entering the highly competitive Formula Renault 1.6 NEC Championship in ’14.
He won the title in commanding fashion, winning nine of the 15 races.
Following the path to Formula 1, De Pasquale took the next step and entered the Formula Renault 2.0 series and became a member of the FIA’s Young Driver Academy, but opportunities beyond that proved limited.
De Pasquale headed home for 2016, teaming up with Bathurst winner Paul Morris in Super2, finishing 11th as a rookie and third in the non-points Bathurst race before rising to fourth last year.
