PERFECT 10: MAT JACKSON (4/10)
Motorbase Performance man Mat Jackson became the fourth winner of the 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship campaign with victory in round four at Donington Park, adding a second win at Hampshire’s Thruxton circuit.
Jackson won an exciting opener at Donington Park after muscling his way past MG’s front row starters. Pole-sitter Ashley Sutton bogged down off the line and dropped back to fourth while Josh Cook banged wheels with Jackson’s Ford Focus, but the latter was able to squeeze through on the run down to Redgate for the first time.
The Ford Focus then pulled away from the MG duo and was more than a second up the road at the midway stage and he maintained that advantage to take the chequered flag of a shortened race brought about by James Cole’s fire and an altercation involving Dan Welch and Matt Simpson.
Jackson scored a second win in Hampshire, following up Andrew Jordan’s race two success with an impressive display in the Thruxton finale.
The victory was his second of the 2016 campaign as he joined WIX Racing’s Adam Morgan as the only double winner up to that point in the season.
Jackson’s Ford Focus blasted past the Proton of pole-sitter Dan Welch off the line and despite being kept honest by the chasing pack throughout, he was able to cruise in relative comfort.
