At 1.98 meters, Jack Manchester’s physical presence is as big as his demeanor is modest: British understatement and his quiet style make him appear somewhat more mature than other 18-year-olds. In racing terms, the driver from the county of Surrey in southern England is a late starter. He didn’t contest his first races until 2016 in a small one-make cup of sports car prototypes, where he immediately took seven podiums and four victories. “The Audi Sport TT Cup is a manufacturer’s racing series with international appeal, in which you can learn a lot,” says Jack Manchester, whose racing idol is Mattias Ekström. The football fan has identified a professional career in the DTM or in the sports car as his goals.
