Jack started Karting in 1997, at the age of six up until he turned 17 in 2007, he raced at a national level, winning many championships along the way.

In 2009 at only 18 Jack began his first year as a professional racing driver by competing in the MG Trophy Championship. Once again he demonstrated his ability to win and earned his place within the world of motor racing by finishing first in his class. With Jack’s talent and potential all too evident, his sponsors unanimously decided to give him the opportunity to race in the Elf Renault Clio Cup Championship in 2010.

The Clio Cup is run as part of the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) programme and benefits from the popularity of the Championship, with various avenues of media coverage including live television.

Jack’s career in the Clio’s culminated with him winning the Championship in 2012.

In 2013, with his sponsors support, Jack was able to fulfil his ambition and compete for the first time in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship. Jack finished the championship in 17th place and ended the season in style with a well earned second place podium position in the last race at Brands Hatch.

In 2014 Jack returned to compete in the BTCC for a second year. He proved his consistency with only DNF’s in four out of a total of 30 races and improved his finishing position to 15th in the Championship that included ten top ten finishes throughout the season.

In 2015 Jack fulfilled another ambition by joining a works-supported team. Triple Eight signed Jack to drive their second MG6 GT alongside former champion Andrew Jordan. Having started his career by winning the MG Trophy in 2009, this move brought him full circle back to MG. 2015 saw 21 top ten finishes including his maiden victory at Snetterton.

2016 saw Jack’s fourth season in the BTCC and a move to the rear wheel drive of BMW 125i M Sport of West Surrey Racing, where he secured another 2 podiums and the most fastest laps of any driver on the 32 car grid.

In 2017 with Eurotech Racing Jack achieved his best BTCC Season to date with 3 pole positions, 1 win and 7 podiums.
