Jackson to make LMP3 debut in Vdev series
Rebecca Jackson will make her LMP3 debut in the next round of the European Vdev series with the Speed Factory team.
Jackson will handle one of the Spanish team’s Ligier JS P3s in the races at Paul Ricard in southern France on May 20-22. Her team-mates have yet to be decided.
Jackson is currently racing in the Reiter Young Stars series for KTM X-bow GT4S, which runs within the European GT4 Series. The LMP3 deal represents her next step on her journey to eventually race in the Le Mans 24 Hours.
“The LMP3 is an exciting prospect,” said Jackson. “It should be relatable from the KTM. They’re both lightweight, rear-wheel-drive cars with similar weight transfer, but the LMP3 has a lot more aero and a lot more power.
“Hopefully this race at Ricard can open up extra chances.”
