Ollie Jackson – Motorbase Performance, MSA British Touring Car Championships

Ollie Jackson has his sights set on glory in the 2020 MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), at the wheel of a newly-built Motorbase Performance Ford Focus ST.

The BTCC has been respected as one of the most renowned motor racing competitions in the world, with NASCAR and Formula 1 the only series that have been continuously running for longer. Since its formation in 1958, legendary names and iconic marques have competed for one of the most coveted prizes in world motorsport.

After a long history of success in a variety of other top level motorsport series, including the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship, the Motorbase Performance squad made its BTCC debut in 2006. Just over a decade later, the Kent-based outfit has established itself as a front-running team in the highly-competitive ranks of the BTCC, amassing an impressive collection of results and an ever-growing, loyal fan-base.

Having won the Porsche Carrera Cup Pro Am Championship with the team in 2010, Ollie made his return to Motorbase Performance in 2019.  In his previous time with Motorbase, Ollie won 11 out of 20 races in one season of the Porsche Championship and held an unrivalled record for scoring points in all 40 races he competed in. During the 2019 BTCC season, Ollie posted his maiden Independent win and achieved his highest set of results to date in the series.

2020 promises to be a big year for the team with the introduction of a new car and a genuine assault for the title is unquestionably possible. And we are right behind Ollie and team.

Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation's (nsif)

Founded by chef David Nicholls, nsif funds the groundbreaking research, conducted by Professor Geoffrey Raisman of the UCL Institute of Neurology, and Dr Pawel Tabakow of Wroclaw Medical University, into developing a cure for paralysis – a condition that robs people of all ages of the use of their bodies. Together with donors’ support, the scientists’ work is providing hope to millions of paralysed people worldwide.

Each year, Beavis Morgan is proud to sponsor the nsifannual Christmas event, ‘A Not So Silent Night’, which takes place in December at the St Andrew Holborn Church, redesigned by one of England’s most venerated architects, Sir Christopher Wren.

Jonathan (Jigger) Thomson

Jonathan, or Jigger as he is affectionately known, first picked up a golf club at the age of five at Rotherham Golf Club where he practised alongside a promising group of youngsters that included future Masters Tournament winner Danny Willett.

At the age of seven, Jigger was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Determined, even at such a young age, Jigger went on to achieve remission after five years of intense chemotherapy.

With golf giving him an escape from the illness, he developed the focus and drive to fulfil his ambition of becoming a professional golfer.

He now stands at six foot nine and a half inches tall and has become the tallest player in European Tour history in 2018 after coming through all three stages of Qualifying School in 2017.

In 2018, Jigger delivered an outstanding performance at the Made in Denmark which saw Matt Wallace take home the trophy, with Lee Westwood, Steven Brown and Jigger finishing T-2 after a four man play off.

Then, in January this year, Jigger equalled a long-standing record for the most consecutive birdies as he recorded a phenomenal nine in a row at the Palmares Open on the Portugal Pro Golf Tour.

Steven Tiley

Born in Canterbury, England, Steven Tiley, an English professional golfer attended Georgia State University before turning professional in 2007.

He has played in Asia and Europe, and first hit the headlines after carding a 66 on the opening day of The 139th Open Championship in 2010 only to be overshadowed by Rory McIlroy, who went three shots lower.

Steven has won three times on the Jamega Pro Golf Tour in the UK, and he has also won the Egyptian Open in 2009, a year before the event joined the Challenge Tour.

In 2019, he earned his maiden Challenge Tour victory at Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge.
