Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship debutant Ollie Jackson completed a strong first day in his new office setting the fifteenth fastest time in qualifying around the Brands Hatch GP Circuit.

Former Porsche Carrera Cup GB driver Jackson said: “P15 was the target I set myself for my first ever touring car Qualifying session so l've got to be pleased in having achieved it.”

Despite the good performance in qualifying Jackson felt that he could have given more if it weren't for the two red flags.

“I'd managed P10 in FP2 and hoped to stay there but unfortunately the two stoppages we had in the session rather upset my rhythm. Overall though, a good day,” he said.

Team-mate James Nash was one of the highlights during qualifying as he took third place. “Really pleased with that (3rd). The only slight disappointment is that Andrew (Jordan) is ahead of me. I always want to be the first Vauxhall.”

Triple Eight Chairman Ian Harrsion was happy with his teams' performance. “Ollie did a very, very good job. P15 for his debut is not bad at all. Both drivers now have to keep things tidy in the first race so we can take things on from there.”
