Coming from an open wheel background, 2021 will be Jackson’s first season campaigning a GT car with McElrea Racing in the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge.
As a kid Jackson raced Go Karts with success, then in 2018 stepped up to single seaters for the Formula 4 championship. He competed in the F4 championship again in 2019 and started racing internationally in New Zealand’s Toyota Racing Series in 2019 and 2020, taking a win ahead of future F1 driver Yuki Tsunoda.
In 2019 he also raced in the Asian Formula 3 championship taking two podiums which was intended to be the springboard to the Formula Renault Eurocup in 2020. The Covid situation left him stranded at home despite promising pre-season testing in Europe.
For 2021 Jackson has switched his attention to GT cars and following in the footsteps of his dad Tony to MR, to build and develop his career.
