Jackson chasing triple points.

Mat Jackson admits that he must take home a hat-trick of points as he prepares to head to Knockhill for the eighth round of the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship this weekend.

The BMW Dealer Team UK driver currently lies fifth in the overall championship standings and is embroiled in a heated battle for the Indpendents' title with just nine races left on the calendar and will look to add to his win tally at the challenging venue overlooking the Firth of Forth.

Jackson scored points in two of the three Scottish races last year, and the prospect of rain hitting the circuit this weekend, he heads north in confident mood of strengthening his championship position.

"It's crucial that we come home with points in all three races this weekend,” he said. “Yes, we generally go well in the rain but we can't count on that. I enjoy Knockhill and the team is eager to make headway in the standings.

“I will only be carrying nine kilos in qualifying so hopefully this will translate into a strong grid position in race one which, with a bit of luck, will give us a good start to the weekend."

Team Principal Tony Jackson added that he too was looking forward to a strong weekend.

"The team always looks forward to the trip up north, not least of all to enjoy the wonderful Scottish hospitality,” he said. “The fans are always so welcoming and enthusiastic and they turn out in large numbers on both days which makes the journey well worth while."
