Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

For­mer cham­pi­onship run­nerup Mat Jack­son has re-signed for Mo­tor­base Per­for­mance to race in the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship.

Jack­son was the most suc­cess­ful driver over the se­cond half of the 2015 cam­paign in the team’s Ford Fo­cus. The Wrotham squad joined mid­way through the con­test and Jack­son, a 25-time race win­ner in the BTCC, will line up along­side An­drew Jor­dan in the two-car out­fit.

“It is nice to get things done early,” said Jack­son, who tested the car at Brands Hatch last Thurs­day. “We need to get as many miles in as pos­si­ble be­fore the start of the sea­son be­cause we have new con­trol parts. We will be go­ing to Por­tu­gal to con­duct mileage over there and that will help us get to grips with the car.”

Jack­son said that he was look­ing for­ward to rac­ing along­side Jor­dan in 2016. “I have never had any prob­lems with An­drew and we know he is fast, so we will make a good com­bi­na­tion,” he said.
