11 December 2016 – Hunts Kart Racing Club

Jack had a good result at the Hunts Kart Racing Club at the weekend, finishing 7th out of a strong field in the Senior X30 class.

It was a competitive drive on the Kimbolton Circuit which can be fairly challenging in the wintry conditions.hkrc_map_track_v18_2015_circuit_1

This was Jack’s penultimate preparation race before taking part in the full X30 Senior British Karting Championship in 2017 where he is expecting to get strong results.

 

 

 

Jack offered place on MSA Academy

In order to support his continued development as a racing driver, Jack has successfully applied for a place on the Elite Motorsports Academy course at Loughborough College.

The AASE Course involves an intensive 2 year study programme that covers all aspects of motorsports including physical training and performance management.  As an extension of his studies, Jack will also compete in Karting through the 2017 season as he builds towards a full season in rallying after his 17th birthday.

2015 Update – MSA British Junior Rallycross Grand Prix winner

In late 2014, Jack tried rallying just to get some seat time and loved it. 2015 has seen him test around once a month on tarmac and gravel and he has a ex challenge Ford KA for testing.

 
Then we decided to do a one off in the MSA British Junior Rallycross Grand Prix and had a result. 2015 MSA British Rallycross Grand Prix champ.
Going forwards, we’re looking at doing much more testing through 2016, with a winter ice driving course booked in Norway ahead of Jack making his full rally debut in 2017 as soon as he’s legally in a position to drive in an appropriate class.

 

 

The last 12 months

Just a brief update. Since making the move to cars, last Christmas. We have taken it easy waiting for Jack to turn 14, as it is hard to get venues until his ARDS test is done.

Timeline:

Nov, Dec, Jan 2013/4 – Vauxhall corsa,  “L” plate driver training, Chirk Airfield
Feb, March – g20 Ginetta junior testing. Bruntingthorpe, Curburgh
May – Jack turns 14
August – Testing Anglesey in prep for ARDS

Then more testing in the u.k. and abroad.
