Jackson gains some horsepower

Multiple Formula Ford 1600 champion Cam Jackson will get his first taste of Formula Ford 2000 power over the weekend.

Jackson, the reigning HSCC Historic Formula Ford champion and the 2020 Classic Formula Ford winner, will be driving Simon Ayliff’s Delta T80, as raced at Donington last year by Benn Tilley (pictured).

As this is a completely new category for Jackson, his hopes for the Snetterton meeting are relatively modest.

“I’m just going out there to have some fun,” he said, playing down his chances of a win.

“I’m aiming for a podium.”

At the moment, the Delta drive is only planned as a one-off, although Jackson is open to the idea of more FF2000 races. More FF1600 is also on the cards, although he is not aiming to defend his championship and will not be competing at Snetterton. The Winkelmann WDF1 which has given him so much success is currently being overhauled.

Jackson’s debut in FF2000 will be this Saturday at the Snetterton HSCC meeting.
