Jackson withdraws from BTCC race day

Mat Jackson has been forced to withdraw from the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship meeting at Croft due to the ill-effects of a bout of food poisoning.

Jackson had battled to fifth on the grid for the fifth round of the season and was administered a drip by the BTCC medical team on Sunday morning prior to the opening race of the day.

The Racing Silverline man was running in fourth place when he suffered a spin into the barriers, and while the RML-run outfit could repair the damage, Jackson took the decision to withdraw due the effects of his illness.

β€œIt's an awful feeling not to be able to take part, but I'm just not well enough to race,” he said. β€œI'm sure that both my sponsors and my fans will understand, and I think they'd rather I rested up than go out on track when I'm ill and unable to perform at my best.”
