Erebus eager to farm out Hanson

EREBUS Motorsport is keen to help Jay Hanson land a gig in 2024 after the TCR Australia race winner lost his Super2 drive.

Erebus has elevated prodigy Jobe Stewart into the Super2 seat it last year reserved for Jack Perkins, who signed a co-driving deal with the Blanchard Racing Team in the off-season.

Meanwhile, Toyota 86 graduate Jarrod Hughes will compete for Erebus affiliate Image Racing.

It was with Image that Hanson had contested the past two Super2 seasons, meaning there is now some doubt over the 20-year-old’s immediate future.

“We’re trying to keep Jay Hanson onboard to do some tests and stuff,” Erebus CEO Barry Ryan told V8 Sleuth.

“I know he’d love to do a wildcard and we’d love to get him in a car but it’s all about trying to get the funding. We have got to work together on it.”

He and Erebus may need to look outside the square – i.e. at a rival – to make an opportunity possible.

“We just want to keep him in a car when we can and help him get a co-drive, or whatever we can do,” Ryan elaborated.

“He is a good kid and a good talent.

“If he’s not with us, I’d love to see him do something somewhere, because he’s too good not to be driving a car.”

Hanson finished sixth in the 2023 Super2 standings in a campaign headlined by a Newcastle round podium.
