Jonathon Webb (born 10 December 1983 in Castle Hill, New South Wales) is an Australian motor racing driver, who has competed in the 2012 V8 Supercars Championship. He now owns and operates Tekno Autosports
Webb, a former BMX bicycle racing champion, first came to national attention racing Porsches out of the family run Tekno Autosports team which had previously operated racing cars for his father Steve. Webb spent several years racing in the Australian Carrera Cup Championship finishing eighth in the inaugural 2003 series. Webb's best run with Carrera Cup was third place in the 2005 series. The following year Webb made his debut in V8 Supercar as an endurance race co-driver for Marcus Marshall in the Paul Cruickshank Racing prepared Ford Falcon.
For 2007 Webb focused full-time on V8 Supercar racing, taking the family Tekno Autosport team into the Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series with Stone Brothers Racing preparing a Ford Falcon. Webb finished fourth in his first season, improving to third in 2008.
In 2009 Webb moved to the MW Motorsport team, a professional Fujitsu Series team for an assault on the championship. In the second half of the series Webb won six out of the last seven races in the season in an irresistible charge to the championship crown. Webb began his association with Dick Johnson Racing in 2009, taking part in his fourth season as an endurance race co-driver in the V8 Supercar Championship Series. Webb continued this involvement into 2010, having secured a former Britek Motorsport Racing Entitlement Contract for the Tekno Autosport team. Tekno formed a technical alliance with Dick Johnson Racing with Webb's car to effectively become the team's third car, although ownership of the franchise will remain with the Webb family. Tekno secured race number 19 from the Sieders Racing Team to use for 2010, to match DJR's existing cars, 17 (Steven Johnson) and 18 (James Courtney). Mother Energy Drink became major sponsor of the #19 Ford from the 2010 Townsville 400. Webb won his first V8 Supercar race on the Saturday at the Sydney 500 in wet conditions.
For the 2011 season Tekno Autosports was re-established as an independent racing team and sourced a Holden Commodore from Triple Eight Race Engineering. The team gradually moved forward, expanding to a second car in 2012 and returning to the results Webb was scoring in 2010 when DJR was at its most recent peak.
