Jake Thompson Motorsports -- True Tales of the TDI Cup: Round 3 New Jersey

Canadian racer Jake Thompson headed to Round 3 of the Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup, with high hopes of taking his first win of the year. Although he proved he had the potential to run up front by setting the fastest lap of the weekend during the race, he was undone by a costly error in qualifying that relegated him to 13th on the grid. Thompson battled hard throughout the race, and in the end was able to make up 5 spots to take home an 8th place finish. A disappointing result, but early in the season it was important to drive smart and salvage some much needed championship points after the problems in qualifying.

After the New Jersey weekend, Thompson also aired his first "True Tales of the TDI Cup" video diary. The video provides viewers with an almost entirely factual glimpse into the glamorous life of a TDI Cup driver, and features a guest appearance by skateboard legend Rune Glifberg as well as Toy Story star Popping Alien.

Most importantly Thompson finished all 19 laps, and in doing so raised $600 for Right To Play. For more information on how you can pledge your support to Racing for the Right To Play, please visit our website at www.jakethompson.ca/righttoplay.
