Ollie Jackson Joins Welch Motorsport

Ollie Jackson has been confirmed in the second Welch Motorsport Proton Gen-2 alongside Dan Welch for the 2014 campaign.

Confirmed at the Autosport International Show at the NEC Birmingham, Jackson moves from Speedworks Motorsport, racing for his third team in as many years within the series.

Welch confirmed at the end of last season that his squad were in the early stages of building the second car and with just over two months until it must be completed, the Proton will have a fresh face behind the wheel.

The 2013 season was one to forget for both Jackson and Welch with the latter suffering a fractured coccyx at Rockingham, ultimately fighting through the pain barrier in the final races.

BTCC Crazy will interview both Welch and Jackson at the show in the coming days with interviews on the website next week.
