Taylor withdraws from RX150 Championship on a high

The Jake Taylor Rallycross team has made the decision to withdraw from the 2017 RX150 Rallycross Championship with immediate effect (August 25).

Having contested over half of the season (five rounds) Retford driver Taylor is placed a strong third overall in the ultra-competitive single-make, single-seater series.

Through the opening rounds of the season in England, Wales and Ireland, Taylor proved his ability to adapt and pick up the new driving style required for the top-flight buggy class, where the rear-wheel drive vehicles use sequential gearboxes and require different driving techniques to those previously experienced by Taylor in rallycross. The MSA Academy member displayed his skills in fast learning in order to adapt to the notoriously tricky, powerful, 200bhp buggies in the opening five rounds, and set podium pace right from the first event, challenging seasoned and experienced RX150 racers.

Even with some significant electronic setbacks and a huge crash at Mondello Park, Taylor departs the RX150 Championship in a strong championship position, thanks to consistently solid performances through the opening half of the year. In 2017, Taylor has also secured the support of LOCO Energy Drink, which has been a huge boost to the young drivers’ career. Taylor is working on a return to rallycross for 2018, with the support of LOCO.

The Englishman is also planning to sample a range of exciting different motorsport disciplines this year to make him an even more well-rounded motorsport athlete. "This was the closest vehicle I could drive to Supercar pace. That was very exciting and a big step for me,” said Taylor. “The RX150 felt natural, it really suited my driving style coming from a rally background and I found my pace quickly. I was fighting for podium places regularly, especially in the last few races. I must say an enormous thank you to LOCO Energy Drink for supporting my 2017 campaign as I would not have got this far without them, and I’m really excited about continuing to work with LOCO in supporting my future activities into 2018.”

“I will definitely miss driving the buggy and the friends I have gained in the RX150 camp this year. It’s been an incredible experience. The whole rallycross community has been fantastic in supporting me and my development in the sport so far and I will keep working hard to make sure #thefutureisRX. I have learnt an invaluable amount in the RX150 already this year and now it’s time to focus on other new possibilities. In 2018, along with planning a rallycross campaign, I will also enter the motorsport world full-time, working in the sport after successfully completing my MSA Academy three-year course.”

RX150 Rallycross Championship promotor Ollie O’Donovan said: “It’s fair to say that from the first test he had in an RX150 buggy, Jake improved with every outing and proved that he was able to adapt to the different challenges that the buggies give to the drivers. They are not easy machines to drive, so he can be proud of what he achieved in his short time in the class. It’s a shame that Jake won’t be completing the season, but we wish him the best for the future and the door remains open in the RX150 Championship should he ever wish to return.”

Taylor endures frustrating weekend in Ireland

Taylor endures frustrating weekend in Ireland

British rallycross driver Jake Taylor endured a challenging weekend at Mondello Park in Ireland, racing in rounds four and five of the RX150 Rallycross Championship, the single-make single-seater buggy support category to the MSA British Rallycross Championship (July 22 – 23).

Having undertaken a test session on Friday to hone the setup of the RX150 more to his driving style, Taylor was hampered through round four due an electrical problem with his Loco Energy Drink-backed RX150 Buggy, but despite the problems Taylor set competitive times in one qualifying session, his best performance in the buggy so far, to secure a place on the grid for the final. In the final, he challenged for a podium finish until slowed by technical problems in the final corners. The race later had to be re-run due to the chequred flag being shown one lap too early, but MSA Academy Member Taylor was unable to complete the restarted final due to technical issues.

On Sunday for round five, with the circuit being run in the opposite direction, the problem with Taylor’s buggy was rectified in time for Q2, where he finished second in the session to put himself in contention for a front-row starting position for the all-important final.

However, at the start of Q3, two drivers ahead made contact at the first corner as Taylor was making a move around the outside of the pair, and was unfortunately an innocent victim of additional contact that pushed his RX150 buggy into the Armco barrier at high speed, resulting in a heavy impact.

Taylor was taken to the medical center for precautionary checks, but was thankfully unharmed. The same could not be said for the buggy’s chassis, which sustained unrepairable damage in the accident, putting Taylor out of the event and potentially ending his 2017 season.

“I was really frustrated, however when the buggy was working it was incredibly fast and suited me well, it’s just a real shame that we had some issues this weekend. The effort we put into testing paid off and enabled me to understand the best settings for my driving style. The fact we were unable to finish is all part of the learning process really, the tough part of motorsport,” said the Retford driver. “On Sunday, we really proved how much progress I’ve made this year with second fastest time in Q2, and I really felt like it could be my day. I made a lightening start from the outside of the grid, but the damage caused by hitting the barrier was huge. I feel very lucky not to be injured.”

Despite the lack of a big points haul, Taylor’s early season consistency means he remains third overall in the championship standings. “We’re not sure what the future holds at the moment, or if we can get back out again. I’m glad that everyone in the accident is okay and I must say a big thanks to the medical team, marshals and the response team at Mondello for taking great care of all involved,” he said.

"I’m just so disappointed that I proved I have the pace and technique when things are going well to really improve in the championship, even if I only completed two of a possible eight races at full pace this weekend. I’m very happy with my progress and something clicked this weekend - I gelled with the RX150 more than I have at any event so far and a lot of people noticed that too. I’m very grateful to Loco Energy Drink for helping me get out to race, every minute in that seat is learning time and hopefully we can put that to good use going forward and I will be back even stronger.”

Taylor climbs RX150 order in Logo Energy Drink buggy at Pembrey

MSA Academy member Jake Taylor returned to the RX150 Rallycross Championship grid at Pembrey thanks to securing support from Loco Energy Drink to continue his season in the MSA British Rallycross Championship support category and finished sixth in South Wales (June 25).

Taylor entered the event on the back of two fourth place finishes in the opening two rounds at Croft and Lydden Hill, but like most of his rivals, had to learn a new layout at Pembrey on Sunday morning.

In a day of changeable conditions, which began wet before drying out, Taylor was seventh, fourth and sixth in the three qualifying races to secure a third row start for the all-important final, despite struggling with the setup of the single-make, single-seater buggy.

While working to improve the setup in the qualifying races, Taylor had also spent much of his time stuck in traffic, along with being slowed by poor visibility. In the final, running in clear air, the Retford-based driver ran in sixth position for each of the six laps, but proved his potential by consistently setting his fastest laps of the weekend to finish in the position and move up to third in the championship.

“It was fantastic to get back behind the wheel of the RX150 at Pembrey, it’s such a great feeling,” said former Junior RX racer Taylor. “The track at Pembrey has massively improved with new corners and surfaces to tackle giving it more flow and rhythm. It also opens up more of the track and allows for more places to overtake. I experienced new challenges with setup throughout the day as the circuit was drying, which meant I was constantly adapting my driving style and the vehicle setup and even up to the race final, tweaks were still being made. Achieving sixth place overall behind seasoned racers and champions is a very strong result for me.”

The Jake Taylor Rallycross team faced a race against time to get to Pembrey. Having secured support from Loco Energy Drink, a revised livery had to be implemented in time for the event. “I could not have continued my season without the amazing support from Loco Energy Drink,” continued Taylor. “I also have to say a big thank you to local companies Retford Autofinishers and Createinn Design for their continuous support, and for turning around the work for the Loco buggy’s new livery and paintwork in just two days. I learnt lots of lessons and driving techniques at Pembrey. To have climbed to third overall in the championship, in my first season only three races in and with less than two hours total seat time - I could not be happier!"

The fourth and fifth rounds of the RX150 Rallycross Championship will take place at Mondello Park in Ireland on July 22nd – 23rd.

Loco Energy Drink offers Taylor rallycross career lifeline

Rallycross driver Jake Taylor has been handed a career lifeline by new sponsor Loco Energy Drink, after his season in the RX150 Rallycross Championship appeared in doubt due to a budget shortfall.

Following a successful pair of opening rounds in the series for the Retford driver, who claimed a brace of fourth place finishes at Croft and Lydden Hill to be third overall in the standings, Taylor faced a race against time to secure the funding to continue in the single-make, single-seater support category to the MSA British Rallycross Championship.

Thanks to assistance offered by Loco Energy Drink as a primary partner, MSA Academy Member Taylor will be able to complete the 2017 campaign as he aims to form a full-time professional career in rallycross.

“LOCO are very pleased to take Jake on board as one of our rallycross athletes,” said Loco Energy Drink’s Leonie Blackburn. “We’ve been watching Jake’s progress for a while and are impressed with his ambition and likability. Jake has the whole package and we are looking forward to the rest of the 2017 season in the RX150 Championship and also exploring plans for 2018 too.”

Taylor’s partnership with Loco Energy Drink will begin in public this weekend, where he will compete in the third round of the RX150 Championship at Pembrey in South Wales, on a heavily revised circuit. “I’m so excited to be able to continue my RX150 campaign,” said Taylor. “I’m over the moon to be working with LOCO, I love their values and their drink, and I’m really excited to see what they have planned for the future. I’m delighted to be part of their rallycross team, I can’t wait to continue my journey working with them as an ambassador for their growing international brand. This really does mean more than I can explain, I was speechless when I found out this amazing news.”

The support comes on the back of several years’ of hard work by JT Motorsport, to achieve a fully-funded motor racing programme. “Our three-year plan at JT Motorsport has come together perfectly and a huge thank you must go to my dad who has painstakingly masterminded the whole strategy step-by-step with me and for my brand,” explained former Swift Sport Rallycross Championship podium finisher Taylor.

“It’s not been easy, after countless setbacks and challenges we carried on regardless over the last few years. It’s proved that with hard work, dedication, a solid plan and remaining focused on your goal that anything is possible. LOCO Energy Drink has proven that there are major businesses watching the world of rallycross that understand its huge potential and I am incredibly grateful of their support. This is the start of another really exciting chapter for me in rallycross. I can’t wait to get back in the buggy this weekend and I’m very proud to have LOCO as my primary partner.”

Taylor faces race against time to save rallycross future

Taylor faces race against time to save rallycross future

Rising rallycross star Jake Taylor is facing a race against time to remain on the RX150 Rallycross Championship grid ahead of the third round of the 2017 series next month and further progress his promising career in the fastest growing motorsport arena in the world.

Taylor currently lies third in the MSA British Rallycross Championship support category, but without additional support will not be able to continue his programme in the competitive single-seater, single-make championship.

The Retford-based driver is looking for support for the remaining seven rounds of the campaign, after talks with a major partner broke down for reasons out of the control of Jake Taylor Rallycross at the 11th hour.

“My aim has always been to prove that it is possible to succeed in motorsport with talent, hard work, determination and a strong plan. A place in top level motorsport shouldn't be reserved for the wealthy or exclusively for motorsport families and I’m desperate to prove it can be done, we just need a bit of support to achieve it,” said the MSA Academy Member, who has made a significant impression in the RX150 Championship despite less than 90 minutes at the wheel in the high-performance buggies.

“The plan for this year was to prove my ability in the RX150 category, which is renowned for being very competitive, and I really feel we have exceeded expectations already – we’re joint third after two rounds against seasoned racers and RX150 owners. Now we’re looking for support from partners to help me to continue to compete and develop. I’ve had amazing support from my family, friends, MSA Academy, sponsors and supporters so far and I don't want it to end here. I won’t give up in my search for backing to remain on the grid. We have a growing brand, great awareness and a huge digital, social and professional network that I am continually expanding, along with my own performance both on and off of the circuit.”

MSA British Rallycross Championship Manager Tim Whittington has commended Taylor on his professionalism. “The 21st century athlete requires a broad skill set, Jake Taylor epitomises the modern racing driver and is totally professional in the approach to his career and the way he presents himself and his partners both on and off the race track,” he said.

Swift Sport Rallycross Championship podium finisher Taylor has also received the backing of establish rallycross racer, former British RX Champion Ollie O’Donovan, who runs the RX150 Championship. “Jake has impressed in the RX150 Championship this season. From the first test he did with us he has improved a lot and is already challenging for podiums,” said O’Donovan. “I think with more time in a buggy he can improve further still. That’s promising for his future, especially as he has diversified from front to rear-wheel drive. I really hope he can find the budget to continue this season and in his career.”

MSA Academy Manager Greg Symes has worked closely with Taylor for the last three years. “We’ve worked with Jake for the best part of three years and during this time we have watched Jake grow – his hard work is the biggest factor in this,” said Symes. “The brand that he has created is a great testament to him and I can’t wait to see how far Jake goes within the next three years. With his momentum I am sure he will go far!”

Taylor concluded: “Most people would have given up by now, especially at the stage they step up to a higher class and that’s the tough story in motorsport. Our three-year business plan has worked perfectly and this year, the third, was always to achieve a fully funded season. It can be done, we simply need more partners to recognise the growth and potential in rallycross and in myself. My hashtag is #thefutureisRX and I’m determined to work hard to make my future happen, so if anyone is able to assist in doing that, please get in touch.”

British rallycross racer Jake Taylor impressed with his performance in the second round of the RX150 Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill (April 17) to secure his second fourth place finish of the season and climb to equal third in the championship standings.

Entering only his second ever event in the single-make buggy championship, following a strong debut a Croft a month earlier, Taylor began the Lydden Hill event more confident with the handling of the single-seater machine and found a good rhythm in Free Practice, despite wet and slippery conditions at the Kent circuit.

Fifth fastest in Q1, the Retford-based driver improved his pace to be fourth in Q2, undeterred by a small gear selection problem with his buggy. Further problems would follow, clutch failure in Q3 meant Taylor had to nurse his car to the finish. Despite that, he qualified fourth overall at the Intermediate Classification and left the Team RX Racing mechanics with a race against time to repair the buggy before the semi-final knockout races. “Having bonded well with the RX150 at Croft I couldn’t wait to get back in it again at Lydden. Practice was slightly wet and I knew I had my work cut out, but I felt confident and was immediately back on the pace,” said the MSA Academy member. “I had a good clean race in Q1 and managed my fastest time of the day in Q2 even with the RX150 jumping out of gear. As the guys worked hard to fix the buggy after Q3, I spent time looking over my on-board footage to find more pace and the small gains that make all the difference.”

The team fixed the RX150 with just five minutes spare to get to the grid for the semi-finals, where Taylor made a strong start in semi-final two and pushed throughout the race to finish second and secure a second row starting position for the all-important final.

Despite not making one of his usual strong launches, after another competitor false started and the grid was reformed, Taylor got his head down in the final and having dropped to the back of the pack in the opening stages used his rallycross experience to climb up the order, overtaking three other drivers and avoiding another spinning competitor to be fourth by the finish, just over a second shy of a podium position. “We were back out and fighting in the semi-final it was an incredible feeling; braking late and controlling slides – the RX150 buggies are exhilarating to race,” said Taylor. “Then, the final. WOW, what a race! It was very hectic and all happened so quickly. I didn’t make the best start after a very quick re-grid, but I wasn’t going down without a fight and by pushing really hard I managed to get up to fourth and gained valuable points in the championship. That was one of my best races in rallycross so far!”

The result means that Taylor is now tied for third in the points standings after the opening two rounds, just two points behind reigning champion Chrissy Palmer in second. “Racing in this class is exhilarating and I love it,” concluded Taylor. “In true rallycross style we had a roller coaster of a weekend, but I continue to develop and understand more about my own driving and the RX150. We adapted the setup to suit my driving style and I was really happy with it, I must also say a huge thanks to all who have made this possible, including Team RX Racing who worked incredibly hard to get me back out for each race and replaced a clutch in less than 20 minutes!”

The next round of the RX150 Rallycross Championship takes place at Pembrey in South Wales on June 25. “I’m now searching for local and national partners to help me get back out again for round three,” said Taylor. “Without the amazing support I have received to date, I couldn’t have got this far, and I’m so grateful that I simply don’t want it to end here. Now the hard work continues to land the all important primary sponsor to support my racing, development and future.”

Taylor’s aim is to prove that it’s possible to make it to the top level in motorsport with talent, hard work, a solid plan and determination.

Taylor stars on RX150 Rallycross Championship debut at Croft

Taylor stars on RX150 Rallycross Championship debut at Croft

Rising rallycross star Jake Taylor finished fourth on his debut appearance in the RX150 Rallycross Championship at Croft Circuit (March 19), a support category to the MSA British Rallycross Championship.

With limited testing ahead of his first ever event in rear-wheel drive rallycross machinery, the Retford-based driver used the early practice sessions to become more acclimatised to the single-seater single-make buggy. He was unfortunately unable to start Q1 due to a minor technical problem, which the Team RX Racing mechanics rectified for Q2. MSA Academy Member Taylor then impressed by setting the fifth fastest time in Q2, despite not achieving the optimum getaway as the lights turned green - the former MSA Junior Rallycross Championship driver still getting used to the unique characteristics of the RX150 buggies that can set lap times similar to those of top-level 600 horsepower Supercars.

With a solid start in Q3, Taylor was again fifth fastest having been involved in some on-track battles to qualify seventh on the grid for the final. Building on the knowledge gained throughout his maiden RX150 outing, Taylor made a fantastic start in the final and avoided contact between other cars at turn one to climb to fourth, where he remained to the finish of the six-lap race, fending off the attentions of more experienced drivers behind.

“Wow, that was a massive learning curve for me, but I feel like I bonded with the RX150 very well and it very much suits my style,” said Taylor. “I loved every aspect of the day, we had a few small niggles here and there, but everyone worked really hard and it worked out well in the end - that’s all that matters. Through the day I was more and more on the pace, but there is certainly room for improvement after reviewing my on-board footage. There are lots of gains to be found, which will help in my preparations for the future.”

Taylor explained that finishing just one place away from the podium finish exceeded his expectations on his debut in the competitive RX150 field. “To get fourth on my very first event in the RX150, I am very, very happy with that,” he said. “The final was just the best feeling. Having an RX150 on full chat and braking later beyond what you think is possible, that’s a mega adrenaline rush. I was so emotional and happy when I crossed the finish line, having worked incredibly hard to get to this point in my rallycross career means so much. I got a glimpse of what is to come in the future and I think I did myself proud.”

The Jake Taylor Rallycross team is continuing to work with potential partners to support a full 2017 season, and Taylor plans to be back on the grid at round two at Lydden Hill, next month (April 17). “I can’t wait to get back out in the RX150. We’re working hard on my plans and looking for partners to help support my goal of a full 2017 season. Please do get in touch if you would like to be involved.”

Jake Taylor Rallycross Update

Jake Taylor Rallycross Update

Jake Taylor Rallycross December Update

“Well, since I’ve not been in action in the MSA British Rallycross Championship in the latter part of the 2016 season, I felt like the close of the year was a good time to give an update about what I’ve been up to, and give some clues about what my future holds.

Having competed in the first five rounds of the Swift Sport Rallycross Championship, I made a tough decision to take a break, to concentrate my time and finances on learning and developing my race craft as well as my physical wellbeing whilst trying other new disciplines. The aim has been to become a more well-rounded motorsport individual.

I had a substantial incident at Maasmechelen in Belgium (round five of British RX) which pretty much ended the season. I had a bucket list of things I wanted to do and I am proud to say I have achieved or booked all of them in the last five months.

I set a clear vision and pathway to try circuit racing, speed training, develop my rear-wheel drive experience, do four-wheel drive training, plan my ARDs test (for circuit racing) and improve my strength and stamina to make me stronger as a motorsport athlete and driver.

I have met a whole new set of fantastic motorsport individuals, broadening my network, some of whom will be working with me into my future and I am really excited about it.

Whilst it was tough to take a break from the Swift Sport Rallycross Championship while lying in fifth place overall, it turned out to be a good decision for me, and will help as I progress in my career.

So, what have I been up to? Quite a lot in fact. There’s a list at the bottom of this message for you to check out. Thanks to everything I have completed in the below list, I have improved myself physically, mentally and stepped on my race craft to an even better level, all in readiness for the future.

After successfully completing two years of our three-year plan, as JT Motorsport we are exactly where we hoped to be and there is lots of work going into the strategy of moving upwards and forwards

On that note, it’s only fair that I give an insight into my plans for next year.

There are lots of exciting new developments and opportunities on the horizon and the off-season is promising to be busier than ever for us to try and put those plans into action.

We are working really hard to put a new programme in rallycross together, and we are getting close I must say, pending some signatures hitting the dotted lines. Nothing’s fully secured, but I’m so keen to be involved in the fastest growing four-wheeled motorsport on Earth. It’s safe to say I will be doing all I can to make sure #thefutureisRX

I feel incredibly grateful for all that I have been able to achieve in 2016 and want to personally thank all of those who have helped me. There really are so many people as my network and support has grown wider than ever over the last twelve months.

I must say a huge thank you to my parents. Without their help, dedication and belief in me none of this would have been achieved.

Remember to keep an eye out for our announcements as they are made, and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy, healthy and successful 2017.”

Jake

Here’s what I’ve been up to:

  • Experience Day – Donnington – Clio 192 and Ariel Atom with The Real Gran Turismo
