Rockingham in 2017 was the scene of Ollie Jackson’s last race weekend where he scored points in all three races and the AmD with Cobra Exhausts driver hopes that he can replicate that this weekend in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

Pace at Snetterton last time out was strong. However, contact in the first and second races meant that the Tamworth driver didn’t have a chance to score strongly and eventually had to retire from both races. Eleventh place in the Diamond Double third race though meant he ended the weekend on a high.

With a strong record at Rockingham, a circuit he’s had the most success at, and belief that the Audi S3 Saloon does have the pace to mix it within the points. Ollie thinks that the top ten could be obtainable.

“We have a few things to try with the set-up of the car when we get to Rockingham but we know that it is a circuit where we have traditionally been strong with the Audi. Given this might be the last time we race there, it would be nice if we could sign off with some good results.

“We showed good pace at Snetterton last time out even if the end results didn’t reflect it, but I see no reason why we can’t aim to be in the mix for three good points finishes this weekend and I think we could push for a top ten if things fall our way.

“I enjoy Rockingham as a track and I’m going into the weekend feeling confident about what we can achieve.”

This impressive recent record at Rockingham for Jackson is something that Team Principal Shaun Hollamby hopes will continue,

“We’ve always been strong with the Audi at Rockingham for some reason, and hopefully the same will be true this weekend and we can push to add some more points to our tally.

“Ollie had one of his strongest weekends of the season there twelve months ago and has only failed to score twice whilst racing our cars, and we are confident that he can maintain that impressive record and add to his tally.”
