Jay Hanson

Super2 driver

Jay Hanson is an 19-year-old driver from Victoria who has raced in a variety of different categories throughout his career including go-karts, Formula Ford, TCR and Super2. 

He has an already impressive resume having won 12 Victorian State championships and two Australian titles in karting, as well as holding the title of youngest TCR podium. 

With his goal always being Supercars, 2022 saw Hanson debut in the Super2 category alongside Erebus Academy and Image Racing and take out 10th in the Championship. 

Having made it through his debut season, Hanson enters his second Super2 season this year with the determination to consistently record top five results. 

Jobe Stewart

Super3 driver

Jobe Stewart is a 18-year-old driver from Mount Gambier, SA who has been part of the Erebus Academy since 2017. Having begun his career in karting over nine years ago, 2020 saw Stewart take the step into tin tops and commence his Toyota 86 (T86) career. 

While his 2020 and 2021 seasons were heavily impacted by COVID-19 restrictions, he still managed to secure a number of podium finishes. By 2022, his third T86 campaign saw him collect five out of fifteen podiums and finish third overall in the Championship.

Stewart has also excelled in the virtual racing world throughout the past couple of years, competing in the past three Supercars E Series competitions. 

2023 will see Stewart move on from his T86 career and progress to Supercars feeder category Super3 alongside Terry Wyhoon’s Image Racing.

Ryan Wyhoon

Karter, #49

Ryan Wyhoon is a 12-year-old go-karter from Korumburra, VIC who joins the Erebus Academy as its youngest member to date.

2023 sees Wyhoon enter his seventh karting season with three Morwell Go Kart Club Championships under his belt, as well as podiums in the Golden Power Series and the Parolin Junior Sprint Classic.

With his father being racer and Image Racing owner Terry Wyhoon, Wyhoon has grown up with a love of motorsport and has dreams of competing in Nascar and Supercar categories.

Finishing off 2022 with a third place at the Parolin Junior Sprint Classic, Ryan will compete in the KA3 Junior Heavy class throughout 2023 and is excited to be working alongside the Erebus Academy.

James Wharton

Ferrari Driver Academy recruit

James Wharton is a 16-year-old from Bundoora, VIC who was recognised by the Erebus Academy at the end of 2019. Beginning his karting career in 2013 and spending the majority of his childhood karting, Wharton has continually stood out amongst his national competition.

2020 saw him obtain global recognition as he claimed top position in the Ferrari Driver Academy’s (FDA) Scouting World Finals. The FDA programme has fostered some of the most recognisable motorsport talent, including Charles Leclec, Mick Schumacher and Sergio Perez.

However, due to being so young, Wharton spent 2021 in the FDA’s training program before he will take part in the European Formula 4 Championship campaign this year.

Wharton has officially made the move to Italy with his family to pursue his dream of becoming a Formula One driver. The Erebus Academy is proud to support Wharton who has clearly demonstrated he is a talent to look out for over the next couple of years.
