Acknowledging that he is in for a testing weekend, Jack is determined to make the most out of an experience that few drivers have ever encountered.
“It’s going to be a really good challenge and a chance for me to see where I am as a driver. The TT and the SR3 are so different. One is front-wheel-drive with power steering and ABS, and the SR3 is rear-wheel-drive with no aids and a load of aero. The Radical is so raw, I just love the racing but the Audi Sport TT Cup represents a great career option for me as I can show what I can do in front of a major manufacturer.”
The weekend will see the young driver take on another two new circuits. The size of the task at hand is not lost on Jack, but it is one that he is relishing.
“It was a shame when the calendar's came out, that the Audi Sport TT Cup and Radicals had so many dates that clashed. That said, I wouldn't have thought back then that we'd ever dream of attempting to do both in a single weekend. I can't be accused of doing things the easy way; it'll be my first time at the Nurburgring and my first time at Spa as well. Add in to that, that it's only my second weekend with Audi and the scale of what I'm trying to do becomes quite clear.”
“Whatever happens, it's going to be something else this weekend. There'll be tens of thousands of people trackside at the Nurburgring in a real festival atmosphere so I cannot wait. I'll be getting out of the Audi on Saturday afternoon, getting straight in the car, driving down to Belgium and hopping straight in my Radical at the back of the grid having missed free practice and qualifying. I'll just give it my best shot to drive through the pack if I can."
