First Podium for Lucas Oil’s Heap

Jacob Heap

(19th May, 2022) – 

Junior Saloon Car Championship driver Jacob Heap secured second place in his Lucas Oil sponsored car to claim his first podium finish in Round 6 at Snetterton, in Norfolk.

Intuitive driving coupled with a mature performance around the track ensured that the aggressive driving that earned him a second place was subsequently replaced by a more managed and dynamic performance that allowed him to defend his placing until the finish line.

After a stunning show in the previous round, that saw him pass 22 other cars, his confidence is now high, despite an incident in Round 7 that forced an early retirement.

“The results are coming,” he said.

“Jacobs progress is inspirational. He’s learning round by round. He’s clearly enjoying the experience and delivering results that will build his confidence for future rounds,” said Dan Morgan, director of sales and operations for Lucas Oil Products (UK).

The Citroen Saxo races on synthetic SAE 5W20, from Lucas Oil, assisted by a selection of lubricants from the workshop range. Products from the car care range, such as Slick Mist, ensure the car looks its best on the track.

The next events are at the Silverstone Circuit, 4/5 June 2022.
