New challenge for Rebeccca Jackson


From The Telegraph website:

The Le Mans 24 Hours is one of the most famous races in the world and arguably the most prestigious endurance race of all time. It remains the ultimate achievement for any sports car racer, myself included.

Rather than just dream about competing, however, at the start of this year I set myself a goal: to race at Le Mans in 2016. There are several routes I can follow in order to achieve this.


She goes on to talk about her progress toward her dream and her racing this year.

I tracked down a bargain Boxster from 2001 and over time managed to secure all the parts I needed to turn it into a racing car. In went a roll cage, super-duper-parent-impressing eight-nozzle fire extinguisher, emergency battery cut-off, race seat, quick-release steering wheel and so on.

The Boxster made its debut outing in April at Silverstone, and together we’ve raced to victory 10 times this season out of 16 races, and scored additional points for seven fastest laps, all of which makes me the 2013 BRSCC Production Boxster Champion. It also brought an end to the first year of Project Le Mans.

At present, the season is over and the team is working hard to secure everything we need for next year, which involves converting the Boxster for a new challenge – Britcar.

What that means is a new set of championship regulations, more parts, more budget and longer races. Most importantly of all, it’s the next step to realising my dream of competing in the Le Mans 24 Hours.
