Jackson picks up where he left off with Donington pole

Reigning HSCC Historic Formula Ford champion Cameron Jackson has topped the qualifying timesheets for the first race of the year at Donington Park, ahead of Linton Stutely.

Jackson’s new Winkelmann WDF2 showed itself to be a very competitive car in its new custodian’s hands, despite its relative obscurity.

Enigma Motorsport boss Stutely, driving Richard Tarling’s Jamun T2, was only 18 thousandths behind Jackson for most of the session, until Jackson pulled out a phenomenal 93mph lap less than a minute from the end.

Classic Team Merlyn driver Pierre Livingston was third, showing signs of following up on his 2018 promise. His team-mate Benjamin Tusting was further down the list in sixth, having not quite got on the pace of the leaders.

Sussex dentist Ross Drybrough was another driver who put in his fastest laps at the close of the session, placing his Merlyn Mk20 in fifth.

Experienced historic racer Will Nuthall maintained a consistent presence in the top five and will start in fourth place. Danny Stanzl was pushed down the grid to tenth by rapid laps from Tusting, Merlyn driver Ted Pearson and Cormac Flanagan’s Alexis.
