mountune powered Motorbase Performance celebrated a fantastic double win and podium during this weekends rounds on the UK’s fastest racing circuit, Thruxton.

There were early signs of a strong weekend during Saturday morning’s free practice sessions with both Motorbase Focus STs showing excellent pace at the top of the timing sheets. Qualifying sadly didn’t produce the same results and both Jordan and Jackson were left somewhat deflated ending the session in P8 and P14 respectively.

However, AJ immediately showed his intent as Sunday’s first race got underway, charging off the line in his mountune powered Focus ST to take MG pair Sutton and Cook as they entered the first corner. A frantic race ensued as the laps unfolded with Jordan’s Pirtek-backed Focus managing to avoid the chaos as the lead pack battled - trading positions and paintwork along the way. Having managed to work his way up into the top 10 in spite of carrying 39kg of ballast, Jackson’s charge was regrettably cut short with a spectacular puncture as the #7 Focus headed into Club on lap 10. Despite a perfectly executed pit-stop by the Motorbase crew, DUO-backed Jackson had to re-join at the back of the pack and could only muster a P21 finish. Jordan meanwhile managed to avoid a huge race-ending melee involving the lead pack on lap 11, taking full advantage of the opportunity to move the #77 Focus up into 3rd to claim his maiden podium for the Motorbase-run squad.

With race officials and Dunlop announcing new race distances shortened to 12 laps for the remaining two races, Jordan made his first move for the lead from lights out. Moving past Ingram’s Toyota to take 2nd Jordan then set his sights on race leader Morgan whilst fending off challenges from Collards’ lighter BMW. With 57kgs of ballast on-board, Jordan played the long-game keeping the pressure on Morgan whilst preserving his tyres before making his move on the Mercedes on lap 11 to take the race lead securing his first race win since joining the Motorbase squad and his first race win since 2014. An outstanding performance from Jackson saw the #7 Focus make up an incredible 12 places on the grid, earning the 35-year-old an impressive 8th place finish and further points for the Motorbase championship campaign.

The reverse grid draw for the final race of the day resulted in a front row start for Jackson in P2 with team-mate Jordan dropping into P9 with 75kg on-board. Jackson stormed off the line and straight past Welch to steal the race lead with the #7 Focus controlling the race to the chequered flag; collecting a 2nd race win of the weekend for the Motorbase squad and Jackson’s 2nd of the season. Unfortunately a reverse of fortunes for Jordan in the final race ended on a low point with the #77 Focus picking up a rear puncture on lap 7 eventually crossing the line in P21.

Motorbase Performance leaves Thruxton in a strengthened Championship position having extended its lead in the Independents Teams Standings and closed the gap on the Overall Teams Standings, while Jordan has moved into 2nd in the Independent Drivers Championship with Jackson close behind in 3rd and 4th in the Overall Drivers’ Standings. The mountune team look forward to the BTCC returning in four weeks’ time for rounds 10, 11 & 12 at Oulton Park on June 4/5.

MOUNTUNE POWERED JACKSON BACK ON TOP

mountune-powered Motorbase Performance celebrated a return to the rostrum at Donington Park this weekend securing its maiden race win of the season and a second placed podium during the second Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship meeting of 2016... Starting behind the manufacturer-backed MG’s for race 1, Jackson stormed off the line to steal the lead in the #7 Focus. Under relentless pressure from a charging Cook, Jackson delivered a defensive masterclass holding off the competition to claim Motorbase’s first outright win of the season along with fastest lap honours.

With maximum 75kg ballast on-board, Jackson had a tough task ahead of him holding off the lighter following pack and an opening lap safety car did little to help the DUO-backed driver. Another faultless drive from Jackson saw him maintain the lead until Collard’s charging BMW pushed through to take the lead in the closing laps with the #7 Focus crossing the line in 2nd, securing the Independent race win.

"The weekend started really well for us. The car felt really strong in free practice and then we carried that through into qualifying where, despite our little mishap, we still managed to grab P3 which was a great result. We got a great jump on the MG’s in race 1 and managed to control the race all the way through. It’s always a good feeling to get that first win of the season under your belt and it’s encouraging that the car performed really well in race 2 again even with full ballast on-board" mountune-sponsored Jackson says.
