Mat Jackson gets his hands on the HiQ bubbly!

HiQ’s Champagne Moment award is staying in the Racing Silverline garage for another race weekend, after Mat Jackson secured the award for his stunning displays at Silverstone.

Jackson, who won the first ever HiQ Champagne Moment when it was launched in 2008, followed team-mate Jason Plato by scooping the bubbly, after Plato won it for his displays at Knockhill.

Hundreds of BTCC fans voted for the Henley star for his two race wins and third place at Silverstone, adding to his brilliant performances at Knockhill the race weekend before, making it six podium finishes out of six.

Around 300 fans voted for Jackson to win the prestigious award for his stunning drives and fan Jordan Batts, of Selsdon, was picked at random to win.

Jackson secured 42 per cent of fans’ votes with Tom Chilton second (20 per cent) and Stephen Jelley third (16 per cent).

Mat said: “HiQ’s Champagne Moment awards mean a lot to me. I won the first one at Croft back in 2008, and it is nice to be back among the bubbly again.

“Jason tells me that it’s a nice drop of champagne, so I’ll look forward to having a sip soon.

“I look forward to receiving the bubbly, which will give me a nice reminder of Silverstone. Hopefully the team and I can enjoy more of the same this weekend at Rockingham.”

BTCC fan Jordan Batts, was picked at random to win a bottle of champagne and he will now win a pair of tickets to the forthcoming round of racing, and will present Mat with his prize.

He will also get the chance to see his Racing Silverline car on the grid for one of the races as part of the prize, courtesy of a grid walk with HiQ.

All spectators are invited to log onto HiQ’s official website, to vote for their star performer from the next round of racing, at Rockingham on Sunday September 20.

The man that receives the most plaudits from the round of racing will be crowned with HiQ’s Champagne Moment award and presented with a magnum of bubbly before the last round of racing at Brands Hatch on October 4.
