2022 Driver Spotlight: Bobby Thompson

10th December 2022

Stepping into the Driver Spotlight next is your 2022 Jack Sears Trophy winner, Bobby Thompson!

Thompson returned to the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship in 2022 after a year away from Britain's premier motorsport series, joining Autobrite Direct with JourneyHero's line-up.

Quickly showing his confidence in the Team HARD. Racing-run Cupra Leon, Thompson bagged a hat-trick of points finishes during Donington Park's opener, before securing a maiden podium during his local event at Brands Hatch.

A consistent campaign would follow, with the 26-year-old regularly taking the chequered flag in the points-paying positions, while he also showed strength in the Jack Sear Trophy battle throughout 2022.

Thompson and main rival George Gamble both fought fiercely in the ultra-competitive category, but with a stellar 12 JST wins and 14 further rostrums Thompson couldn't be denied and took the title with an unassailable lead despite two rounds still remaining.
