Mat Jackson – Walero Ambassador

Mat Jackson Walero Brand Ambassador

Mat Jackson has been racing in BTCC since 2001 and started his career in a Ford Focus in the Production Class.

In 2005 he was to race in the SEAT Cupra Championship, which he dominated and walked away with the championship.

With a former Andy Priaulx WTCC BMW 320si, Mat re-entered the BTCC fray in 2007, scoring podium places from his third race and went on to score his first win that same season at Oulton Park.

In 2009, Jackson moved across to Racing Silverline’s Chevrolet Lacetti, and despite missing the opening meeting, he triumphed four times to finish fifth in the overall classification.

He moved to Motorbase Performance in 2010, winning races for the team in every year bar 2013 and claiming a best championship finish of fourth place in a Ford Focus ST in 2011.The Warwickshire star was a last-minute addition to the 2014 BTCC entry list after agreeing an 11th-hour deal to remain part of Motorbase’s line-up.

The team sat out the opening half of 2015 due to budgetary shortfall, but Jackson returned midway through and was the most successful driver in the field over the final five meetings, tallying four wins from 15 starts and three consecutive pole positions.

2016 was a strong year for Motorbase, and Jackson. After a half-campaign in 2015, the Kent squad were back for a full run at 2016, with Jackson tallying a joint-high of five victories (Donington Park, Thruxton, Snetterton, Knockhill, Brands Hatch), tied with Colin Turkington, on his way to helping the squad to a maiden title, the Independent Teams’ Championship.

Mat Jackson will be competing in BTCC 2017 with Motorbase.
