Erebus prodigy scores Gen3 Supercar laps

EREBUS Motorsport protégé Jobe Stewart will turn his first laps in a Gen3 Supercar tomorrow.

The 2023 Super3 champion made a positive start to his rookie Super2 season last month at Bathurst, qualifying on the front row for Race 2 and going on to finish second behind Kai Allen.

A Mount Gambier product like Allen, Stewart has long been aligned with Erebus.

His evaluation day tomorrow at Winton Motor Raceway will come in the #99 TFH Camaro, and follows Erebus providing a similar opportunity for Cooper Murray and Jay Hanson last year.

Chassis EM07, which made its competitive debut at the Thrifty Bathurst 500, was originally destined to be raced this year by Brodie Kostecki.

However, a well-documented fallout between Kostecki and Erebus has seen the seat be filled by Todd Hazelwood, who is expected to contest the full season but is only being confirmed round-by-round for now given legal proceedings going on in the background.

Both Hazelwood and Supercars teammate Jack Le Brocq will be on-hand tomorrow at Winton.

As is allowed under evaluation day rules, Hazelwood can drive up to 10 laps, while Le Brocq’s presence will merely be in a support-type role.

With Hazelwood and Le Brocq set to be joined by Jayden Ojeda and David Russell respectively for the 2024 enduros, any Repco Supercars Championship outings for 19-year-old Stewart are unlikely to come before next year.

Also at Winton tomorrow will be Tickford Racing’s Cam Waters, to shake down a brand-new Gen3 Mustang which he’ll race next week at Albert Park.
