Seeking European Place ?

AFTER just two outings as a professional Naburn teenager Brad Jackson is seeking a place at the summit of European drag racing.

The 17-year-old, who this spring launched himself into the pro circuit after four trophy-laden seasons as a junior, has made a superb impact.

Jackson is currently in third position of the UK Super Pro championship after the opening two rounds, his latest success being at the Shakespeare County Raceway at Stratford-up[on-Avon.

Following a points-gathering debut at the Festival of Power meeting staged by the Santa Pod track, Jackson – the focal point of the Brad Jackson Racing Team of which his dad Wayne is the team principal – surged to two more round wins in Shakespeare country.

That propelled the apprentice motor technician for York-based DM Keith Skoda, to the semi-finals, which he comfortably negotiated to set up a clash against Scott Hauser, the 2013 UK Super Pro champion.

Though Jackson drove the USA-built Worthy Dragster car expertly, he lost out by a mere four-hundreths of a second.

However, that advance to the last two showdown still nudged him into a challenging position for his next date with speed – the FIA European round back at Santa Pod over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend.

So far a total of 47 entries featuring the cream of drivers from across Europe have been declared.

But there are just 32 places available for the final rounds, so Jackson will face a stern test to attain final race qualification.

Said Jackson senior: “Brad and the team had a great weekend at the Shakespeare track with Brad putting in several superb performances.

“Now we have the main event with the European round and Brad and the the rest of us are relishing the challenge.”
