Jackson commits to AMD for second Audi season
Ollie Jackson will run an upgraded AMD Tuning.com Audi S3 saloon in the British Touring Car Championship next season.
The 32-year-old, who was 26th in the standings this season, will remain with the team as it bolts the revamped Rml-spec parts on the two-litre turbocharged machine.
Jackson said that the new parts, allied to a strong pre-season test programme, have given him optimism about next year’s campaign. “With the upgrades that will be carried out, I’m hopeful that we can be in a strong position when the season starts and be able to challenge for points from round one.”
Team boss Shaun Hollamby said that Jackson could be joined in the team by a second entry, should current talks be successful. “There is still the possibility that we may be able to run a second car alongside Ollie if certain things fall into place but it is out of our hands at the moment and very much a case of wait and see,” he said.
