FORMER RENAULT UK DIRECTOR TIM JACKSON PASSES AWAY
We are sad to announce that Renault UK’s former PR Director and Motorsport Manager, Tim Jackson, has passed away at the age of 68.
Jackson was in charge of the manufacturer’s motorsport programmes from the mid-1980s and throughout the 1990s, overseeing the introduction of the likes of the Renault Clio Cup and Formula Renault, as well as the French manufacturer’s graduation to the BTCC in 1994.
Renault made a highly significant impact on the British motorsport scene and Tim played a huge role in its success. The world-renowned marque claimed numerous honours under Jackson’s stewardship, including Alain Menu’s BTCC title in the famous Laguna back in 1997.
Jackson retired from Renault in 2011 but maintained his enthusiasm and passion for the sport as a non-executive director at the MSA.
Everyone involved in the British Touring Car Championship sends its condolences to Tim’s family and friends at this difficult time.
