Jackson moves closer to HSCC title with pole position

Cameron Jackson has taken another step towards the HSCC Historic Ford title by putting his Lola T200 on pole in the last qualifying session of the season.

His chief rival, Ben Mitchell, could only manage fourth place in his Merlyn Mk20, albeit only three-tenths of a second behind. Just two points separate the two championship leaders and their rivalry has taken on an edge after a failed protest at Brands Hatch.

Callum Grant looked strong on track and qualified second, just over a tenth behind Jackson. The championship top three pushed each other hard during the dry, bright session and ran very close to one another throughout.

Benjamin Tusting will line up in third place. The Classic Team Merlyn driver is a local man from up the road in Towcester and will be looking to continue his great run of late-season form, which has included two podiums from the last two meetings.

Reigning champion Richard Tarling was fifth in his Jamun T2, which is now up for sale, ahead of returning Swiss driver Gislain Genecand, who was the leading Radio Caroline Over 50s driver.
