Jack­son com­mits to AMD for sec­ond Audi sea­son

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
