Betty Klimenko

Owner of Erebus Motorsport

Betty Klimenko is the first woman ever to own a Supercars team and is shaking up the sport dominated by males.

In 2017 in front of 50,000 spectators at Mount Panorama and a television audience of 2.7 million, Betty’s team Erebus flashed first across the finish line of the nations most famous car race, the Bathurst 1000.

Here is what Betty had to say about our cause.

“It’s a privilege and an honour to be an ambassador for Feel the Magic. What these children go through is close to my heart as I lost my mother when I was 10 years old and know first-hand the feeling of loneliness and abandonment that can fill your mind and soul. It’s wonderful to know that through Feel the Magic these kids will have an outlet and a way of dealing with their grief when a loved one passes on. Grief and loss changes lives forever, having an organisation that understand and help bring balance and a smile to faces that have only known tears is truly amazing”.
