Ollie Jackson Hoping For Redemption At Home Round

1 Mins read

Speedworks Motorsport driver Ollie Jackson is looking to put his Croft woes well behind him this weekend at Snetterton, the home circuit for the Toyota driver.

Jackson considers the Norfolk strip of tarmac as his home circuit, and is looking forward to returning to Snetterton after a productive testing period for the team over the summer break for the Toyota team that left him confident of a good performance in store for the weekend.

“I have lived very near Snetterton for many years, have been around there plenty of times, it’s my home track and I’m looking forward to it. We tested there recently and got some good info from that.

“The Toyota was running well and we tried a load of stuff; I think we will have a good, solid car for Snetterton.”

In his second year of BTCC after a year driving‘s Volkswagen Golf during 2012, this season has been tougher for Jackson in the NGTC Avnesis, currently lying 21st in the championship after the opening 15 races.

Jackson comes off the back of what he personally described as ‘disaster’ at the previous round of the season held at Croft, a mechanical failure and the later inclement weather making it a problematic weekend in North Yorkshire that he would rather forget.

The plus side to the weekend was that Jackson admitted it would take an awful splice of poor luck to have a repeat of the Croft visit, saying: “Croft was pretty much an unmitigated disaster for me, from my driving in qualifying to the car in race one and the weather in race three.

“You never dare say things can’t get worse, but I think it would take some pretty poor luck for us to have another weekend like that.”
