Erebus junior scores Super3 ride

EREBUS Academy talent Jobe Stewart will make the next step in his Supercars journey this year by debuting in the Super3 Series.

Having first joined the Erebus Academy in 2017, the now 18-year-old is graduating from the Toyota Gazoo Racing Australia 86 Series.

He will drive for Image Racing in a Holden VF Commodore.

“It’s a pretty big step to move from the 86s to Super3 but I’m really excited and keen to see how I stack up against everyone else,” Stewart said.

“Besides the obvious difference in the power of the car, Super3 is also a big step up in terms of competition and professionalism.

“Image Racing is definitely the perfect fit for me,” he added.

“We’ve obviously been with the Erebus Academy for a few years now and Image Racing works closely with them and I’m excited to get to do the same.

“I completed a Super3 test with Terry in his Ford Falcon last year and have had some experience in Erebus’ Mercadore but I’m definitely looking forward to getting some more testing in before Newcastle.

“I’ve never been to Newcastle before so it’s a bit daunting as there’s not much room for error but I’m looking forward to it, I love the street circuits.”

Erebus CEO Barry Ryan hailed Stewart’s progress.

“It’s brilliant to see Jobe stepping up to the Super3 program under the Erebus Academy banner with Image Racing,” he said.

“He has proven himself to be one of the fastest and best Toyota 86 drivers towards the end of 2022 and is truly ready to step up.

“Jobe has driven our ‘Who’s Next’ program Supercar a couple of times now and has immediately shown that Supercars is where he will grow fast as a racer and I cannot wait to see Jobe set his sights on race wins and learning as fast as he can.”

Among others expected to compete in Super3 are Cameron McLeod and Mason Kelly, both in Nissan Altimas.
