Maro Engel joins the Erebus Motorsport V8 stable in 2013 and will compete in the V8 Supercars Series for the first time. An experienced driver who was born in Germany and grew up in Monaco, Engel makes his move to Australia this year after spending four years driving in the DTM series as a Mercedes-Benz factory driver.
Like many racing drivers, Engel started his racing career in the world of karting (1996 - 2000). In 2001 he drove in his first formula racing series. After two years in Formula BMW, he graduated to the Formula 3 Euro Series in 2003 and became an AMG ambassador.
In 2005 he switched to the Italian Formula 3000 Championship, finishing in seventh place overall. In 2006 and 2007, Engel competed in the fiercely contested British Formula 3 International Championship.
He ended the 2007 season in second place overall, with three victories, eight podium positions and four pole positions under his belt. In the three years between 2008 and 2011, Engel drove for Mercedes-Benz in the DTM.
While 2013 will be his first season driving a V8 Supercar, Engel is no stranger to the Erebus Motorsport team after winning his Australian debut race in the SLS GT3 Championship at Phillip Island in 2012.
Engel will pilot the #9 SP Tools Racing Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG V8 Supercar and will work closely with Engineer Chris Stuckey.
