Now making his third European Masters appearance of 2017, Manchester returns to the happy hunting ground of Monza where the 19-year old impressed last year on his first ever trip to the track, taking a win on his European Masters debut.
Jack is relishing the challenge that this weekend at Monza brings.
“Monza is a fantastic track with lots of history. I have great memories of the circuit from last year, after taking a win on my first appearance there and I’m hoping for more of the same this weekend. Monza is a challenging track; it’s very fast but as it only has a handful of corners, you have to be very precise to hook a quick lap up.”
Barry Mears, Head of the MBP Academy, sees this as an important weekend for Jack.
“Jack’s recent form has been fantastic and this weekend is a great opportunity to continue his run. Jack enters the weekend as one of the drivers to beat so it will be a unique challenge for Jack to manage these expectations. This is testament to Jack’s development as he has come from an underdog to a front runner in the championship in less than two years.”
Track action at Monza gets underway on Friday morning with free practice at 08:00 (BST), with one race on Saturday and two more following on Sunday.
