COMING off the wet track at Bathurst, local racing legend, Garry Jacobson jumped positions in the final round of Supercars Pirtek Endurance Cup. Mastering the torrential conditions at the Gold Coast 600, Jacobson began race 21 in position 22 to then take the lead into third position before handing the reigns to duo driver, Jason Bright.

Race 22 saw the team starting in position 16 as Jacobson kept the car clean from any carnage he climbed five positions.

The Mega Fuels duo took out 13th in the overall Pirtek Endurance Cup Standings.

Jacobson said, “A big thank you to Jason Bright, Prodrive Racing and Mega Racing.”

The young racer is now preparing for the Super2 Series this November.

Jacobson said. “It’s another successful day for us. I gained another five spots in my stint, which wasn’t due to speed. However I’m getting a good start and putting in a consistent drive. It’s great to see my progress from Sandown till now.

“I’m happy with my performance and I’m pretty proud of my first ever Enduro experience.”

Jacobson will race next at the Newcastle 500 race from November 24 to 26.
