Jac was steady throughout qualifying finishing third in the Ams to Grahame Tilley and his Xentek Motorsport team mate Jack Minshaw.


Race One saw the winner of the Am Championship for the last two seasons Colin White come through the pack to take top spot, with Jack Minshaw second and Jac third in a closely matched race where the three of them finished less than a second apart.


This race was dominated by Colin White on a wet but drying track where Jac was again running well in second place chasing White through the field before he locked up at Paddock Bend on lap 5 and off into the barrier. The Am class win went to White who finished 5th overall beating a significant number of Pros, with Minshaw second and David Brooks third.


The Sunday spectacular in front of a huge crowd and televised live on ITV4 saw the grid positions in order of the finishes of Race 2 and due to his off, Jac saw himself at the back of the field on the last row of the grid. He made a good start and picked up a couple of places before the end of the pit straight and drove really well to make his way through the field. His team mate Jack Minshaw was leading the Am field when Jac caught him on lap 3 where he maintained station for nearly 20 laps before making a brave overtaking manoeuvre at Paddock Bend. The speed taken into the corner saw him drift wide and Minshaw did a great job in cutting back and recovering the lead up Paddock Hill. Jac made his decisive overtaking move on lap 24 of 27 taking more speed through Surtees and getting a faster exit through Clearways. Jac was able to post the fastest Am lap and he stretched his lead to over 2.5 seconds to the second place finisher Dan Kirby of Team Hard by the end of the race, with his team mate Minshaw taking third.
