Peter Jackson is the latest young-charger to throw his hat into the BRC ring. The 21-year-old will use an ex Gee Atherton Ford Fiesta R2T as he looks to put himself against some of the country’s young talent in the Junior BRC this year.
“I started rallying last year, so I am still very fresh in this motorsport discipline. I started karting at eight until I was 16 or so and last year, after a few years away I got back behind the wheel. I started in a R1 car then after a few events stepped up to the R2 machine to get as much experience as I could with the BRC in mind for 2020.”
After a season of building momentum throughout 2019, Jackson took the plunge and registered for the BRC. His enthusiasm and intentions were clear to see.
“The calibre of everything the BRC represents is so strong. The competition is the best, and there are some quality drivers to pitch myself against. I want to progress as a driver and you can only do that against the best. We have a slightly older car, but that doesn’t mean we wont be trying as we want to do well and put in a good fight against the younger cars.”
Peter knows there will be a step-up in 2020 but the Welshman is keeping his feet grounded and is like a kid in a sweet shop when looking at the calendar for the season ahead.
“I am looking forward to them all, there are some real iconic events. I just can’t wait for the Cambrian it’s going to be very special to compete on a BRC round. Then the trips to Ireland and Ypres will be amazing. I have been watching loads of videos and the stages look fabulous, it’s going to be one amazing experience.”
