Jack Hawkeswood – the man who Jacks Ridge is named after – has called out his father Andrew to take him on at the Battle of Jacks Ridge in November.
Andrew, the 2017 national champion, has stepped away from driving fulltime in recent seasons to concentrate on his business commitments and also to allow Jack to be primary focus of the Force Motorsport operation.
But after the pair constructed the Jacks Ridge WRC-calibre power stage on their Whitford property, Jack has called on his old man to enter the event.
“I mean he has to enter doesn’t he?” Jack laughed.
“We have a good rivalry going and I think this will be the ultimate test of that competition between us.
“If he does enter he will probably let the air out of my tyres or do something to hinder me so he can come out on top.
“He’ll have his hands full though – I’m ready for him.”
Jack has been tipped by many as the man to beat given his improved speed in 2020 and the fact that he knows the course about as well as anyone.
Hawkeswood senior is tipped to be weighing up whether to enter or not.
