Available only on Foxtel (channel 506) and Kayo Sports, Episode Two will air on Thursday, April 2 at 7.00pm, with two episodes a week to be shown on Tuesday and Thursday nights.

Erebus Motorsport Team Owner, Betty Klimenko, said: “I was all for doing this. In the beginning it was a little daunting, but once you got used to a crew they were really good about it and it just became part of every weekend. I forgot about them half the time. I’d go to the bathroom and leave my mic on by mistake!

“I think people will love it because they’re going right behind the scenes. Not just right into the garage but de-briefs, the personal lives of the people who make up Erebus. They’re going to see what makes us tick. Every team is different and this is how we do it.”

Supercars CEO, Sean Seamer, said: “Our new annual docuseries Inside Line provides an excellent insight into the world of Supercars and all the dynamics of a motorsport team – getting to know their personal lives, the explosive track action and the team’s full-blown rivalries. With unprecedented access to the inner sanctums of the team and drivers, both on and off the track, this compelling series is a must watch for any sports fan and showcases what is at the very heartbeat of our championship.”

Head of Fox Sports, Peter Campbell, said: “Inside Line – A Season with Erebus Motorsport is a fantastic addition to our unrivalled motorsport offering and we’re thrilled that the first and only place it will be seen is on Foxtel and Kayo Sports.

“Following on from the success of Formula One’s Drive to Survive on Netflix, that is also available on the new Foxtel user experience, we’re very proud to showcase our own characters from the Supercars Championship and take fans to places they’ve never been before. Foxtel subscribers will also be able to stream the series anywhere, anytime on Foxtel GO.”
