Jack­son to make LMP3 de­but in Vdev series

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
