Jobe Stewart will become the latest Erebus Academy driver to move onto the Supercars ladder when he makes his Dunlop Super3 Series debut with Image Racing.
He first came under Erebus Motorsport's umbrella back in 2017, when he was still just 12 years old and racing in go-karts.
The Mount Gambier product made his first steps towards car racing by taking part in the Academy's Karts to Cars program in late 2019 before moving into the Toyota GAZOO Racing Australia 86 Series the following year.
The 2022 TGRA 86 season proved a breakout one for Stewart, who finished third overall with five podium finishes to his name. While the step from the little 86 to the fire-breathing V8 is a big one, this year won't be Stewart's first time behind the wheel of a Supercar.
He completed a Super3 test last year aboard one of Image Racing’s Project Blueprint-era Ford Falcons, while the Erebus Academy gave him a couple of opportunities to test the squad's ‘Mercodore' Mercedes-engined ZB Commodore at Winton as part of its ‘Who's Next' program.
