Tekno team boss Jonathon Webb returns to defend his Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 crown with Will Davison.
Son of racer Steve Webb, ‘Jono’ made it two from two at Mount Panorama last year after also being part of the three-driver line-up that won the 12 Hour in a McLaren.
Webb has runs on the board in a Supercar, having won a solo race at Sydney Olympic Park in 2010, finishing on the podium at the same track in his final full-time race in 2013, and starring in the 2014 endurance series alongside now Red Bull racer Shane van Gisbergen.
The Dunlop Series winner back in 2009, Webb began his career in Porsche Cup racing. He moved into the Porsche Carrera Cup when it kicked off in 2003 and remained in the one-make series through to the end of 2006.
He made his V8 Supercar debut alongside Marcus Marshall as co-driver at Sandown and Bathurst in 2006 for Paul Cruickshank Racing.
He made the move into the Dunlop Series in 2007 in an ex-Marcos Ambrose Falcon for Stone Brothers and again drove for the Glenfords/PCR team in the endurance events alongside retiring legend John Bowe.
After finishing fourth in his first season in the Dunlop Series, Webb returned for a second season in the development series in ’08 in an SBR Falcon. Victory in Race One at Bathurst and second for the weekend proved to be a season highlight before he ultimately took the 2009 crown in his third season.
He drove a Dick Johnson Racing-prepared Falcon in 2010 in his first full-time V8 Supercars Championship season, while the following year was tough as his team went out on its own away from DJR and slowly built up its nucleus.
