Jack Vs Mark Litchfield at Rowrah

Back in December, Jack spent a full day testing at Rowrah with championship winning karter Mark Lichfield.
Mark has been a mentor to Jack throughout his junior career, helping him to improve his performance and get the most out of his talent as a driver.

We’d planned the testing as part of Jack’s preparation for the 2017 SuperOne season where Jack will be taking part in all rounds including Rowrah and PFI.  The main goal of the session was to help familiarise Jack with the performance of the Super One spec kart in challenging winter conditions, and also to give him a strong benchmark for his times against the experienced 5-time British Champion Litchfield.

Over the course of the day, Jack and Mark took it in turns to drive around the tight circuit swapping fastest times as they tuned the kart to the conditions.

So, how did they do?

Here’s a GoPro recording of their fastest laps around Rowrah, showing how they approached the challenging circuit on a cold day:

February 2017 – Rowrah Kart Track, 2nd Place

Jack had a good result to start February at the Rowrah Karting Circuit with a strong 2nd place in a competitive field.  This was really positive for Jack, as the he will be returning to the track in March for the opening round of the SuperOne championship.

The first round of the SuperOne Series takes place on 18th March at Rowrah, and we’re expecting a strong result on the day.

Ice Driving Training at John Haugland Rally School in Norway

In January 2017, Jack was a guest of the John Haugland Ice Driving School in Norway to help him prepare for the different challenges of Rallying ahead of his first season in 2018.

Spectacular scenery around the driving school along with really tricky conditions meant that Jack learned an enormous amount from the experience. And he’s looking forward to more training as part of the MSA elite driving programme at Loughborough College during 2017.
