A confident Manchester headed to Brands Hatch after continuing to impress in his second season; two podiums on his return from the summer break at Snetterton, were followed by a win at Silverstone and two more trips to the podium.
With no testing on Friday, the first session of the weekend was qualifying where Jack would have to be switched on from the first lap at the 2.4332-mile circuit.
Delivering one of his strongest qualifying performances of the season, Manchester’s 1:26.209 lap time saw the Thunderhead-sponsored driver secure 2nd place for race one at Brands Hatch. With Manchester almost matching his fastest lap time with his second fastest lap, Jack’s consistency meant he took pole position for race two by almost four-tenths.
