Jackson Returns To BTCC

Mat Jackson signs for Power Maxed Racing alongside Jason Plato in one of the BTCCs strongest driver line ups.

The Warwickshire based team will retain double champion Jason Plato as he looks to build on a strong campaign last year resulting in victory for the season finale.

Mat Jackson who was absent from the championship for two years returns with the hunger to win more races and the championship, “I may have been away from the series temporarily, but thoughts of winning the BTCC were never far away,” said Jackson. “I have unfinished business and it was critical for me to return with a top team, capable of mounting a consistent title challenge.”

Jason can’t wait to get going ahead of the 2020 season, with the pair having been teammates previously in 2009,

“It has been a while since I was this excited for the start of the season,” said Plato. “I genuinely love my team at PMR; they work unbelievably hard to provide me with the very best car, but also have a lot of fun doing it; it’s a great place to be. Adam and Martin [Broadhurst] have put a very special group of people together that are focused on winning the championship, whilst sensibly making sure they are also building a stable future in the sport. This all helped me get my mojo back in 2019, and I want to reward them all with plenty more race wins. They will be the team I hit 100 wins with, I have no doubt!

The season launch is on the 17th March where the pairing will test on the Silverstone International layout for the first time.
