Jackson re-signs with Motorbase for British touring car assault
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.
