Jackson Returns To JamSport For Final Three Weekends

1 Mins read

Eighteen months after making the switch from JamSport Racing to Team Cooksport, George Jackson has moved back to his former home for the remainder of the 2016 Renault UK Clio Cup season.

The 22 year old started his racing career with JamSport in the Fiesta ST Championship in 2014 and competed in the opening three rounds of his maiden Clio campaign with them last year before heading to Cooksport.

Jackson finished eighth overall in the championship last season with eleven top ten finishes to his name, however a tougher 2016 so far has produced only five top ten results.

Jackson’s JamSport return will begin at Rockingham next weekend, the scene of his best Clio Cup finish to date, a fourth place finish twelve months ago.

“JamSport is like home to me – it’s actually where I started my racing career in Ford Fiestas and everyone there is like family. Logistically its base in Northampton also works better for me,” said Jackson.

“However I’d really like to thank Cooksport for all they have done for me. It’s a really well-run outfit with a terrific bunch of people and the knowledge that team boss Josh Cook has been able to pass on from his time in the UK Clio Cup and now British Touring Cars has been invaluable.

“Now, though, I am really looking forward to working again with JamSport – particularly as we head to one of its local circuits at Rockingham where I had my best result to date in the UK Clio Cup in 2015’s event there.”

Jackson returns to a JamSport team who are currently challenging for the title with Ant Whorton-Eales, and celebrated their maiden one-two Clio finish last time out with Whorton-Eales and Luke Kidsley.
