Motorbase Performance's Mat Jackson was thrilled to end his 2015 British Touring Car Championship 'in style' after almost winning all three races at the Brands Hatch season finale.

The Ford Focus ST driver and his Motorbase squad continued to make an indelible mark on the 2015 season with Jackson converting his third consecutive pole position into two further triumphs around the Grand Prix circuit.

Jackson's pole lap was a marvel in itself after 34-year old smashed the existing pole position record by over six-tenths of a second.

Under the midst of the compelling championship showdown, Jackson found himself within contention of making it a remarkable three wins out of three but had to settle for second behind Jason Plato, who was still hunting a third BTCC title.

"It was mega," Jackson told Crash.net. "Pole, two wins and a second. We were just one short of making it a clean sweep but there you go. Race three was a massively fun race to be part of and it was enjoyable.

"We got a good start and managed to muscle our way through during the first two corners and we were right in the middle of the fight.

"It was a fantastic race to be in there with Matt [Neal] who was racing hard with Jack [Goff]. You've just got to think of your own race. Obviously there was a championship to be won but we're here to race. Jason [Plato] was the target and we wanted the three wins but we were just slightly short.

"But it was a great weekend for all the boys at Motorbase and Mountune. It's been a lot of hard work to get this program back and we've come back in style so I'm pleased with our work."

Motorbase team boss Dave Bartrum admitted it was no surprise that the Jackson was able to clinch three podiums during the finale given that the team's close proximity to the circuit makes Brands Hatch a stronghold for the Ford Focus ST.

"The car has lived here. Even though we've got a tight budget, we've come here to test because it's a few miles down the road from our workshop. That's why the car knows every inch of the circuit," Bartrum concluded.
