The 18-year-old’s eagerly awaited return got off to a flying start, pouncing upon an emerging gap between the cars ahead as the lights went out. By the third corner Jack was in 2nd challenging for the lead until the second lap, when a challenge from behind caused a collision, sending Jack’s car reeling back to 19th place. It was time to dust himself down and get back into the action and Jack was soon displaying some audacious overtaking, picking up places as he cut through the field crossing the finishing line in a commendable 8th.
Race two was time to even the score and get back up to the front and Jack didn’t disappoint. Building on his previous great start he weaved his way off the line filling gaps at speed and pulled himself up two places to 3rd position on the first lap.
From there Jack and the 1st and 2nd placed cars tracked each other building a gap on the chasing pack. Jack was keeping the pressure up when an error from the car ahead allowed Jack to move into 2nd. This enabled Jack to push even harder and edge closer to the leader and he was on his tail as they crossed the line for his first podium finish of the weekend.
The 40-minute endurance race was the final race of the day and Jack was ready for action starting in P8. The rolling start posed a new challenge, but true to form Jack demonstrated great skills and launched through the pack at the start and moved into third position and was challenging for second. After the pit stop, the leading trio held their positions and Jack nipped on the heels of the car in front right up until the finishing line, bagging 3rd place and his second podium of the day.
