Jordan and Pirtek Racing out to impress at Donington Park

11/04/2016 | Racing

Pirtek Racing driver Andrew Jordan will hope to impress this weekend when the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship heads for Donington Park for the second round of the season (16/17 April).

Donington is a circuit that has happy memories for Andrew, dating right back to his debut season in the BTCC when he took the fight to the established order as a raw rookie to secure his maiden top six finish.

It was also the scene of his maiden pole position in the series back in 2009 and the venue where he took the first win of his title-winning campaign in 2013.

This time around, Andrew heads into his home event looking to build on a promising start to his 2016 campaign at Brands Hatch, which marked his first race meeting at the wheel of his new Motorbase Performance-run Ford Focus.

A brace of top four finishes in the season opener mean Andrew sits fifth in the early season championship standings with his primary target for the Donington weekend being to further strengthen his position in the title race.

“I absolutely love Donington Park,” he said. “It’s a proper ‘old school’ circuit and one that has really improved in recent years with all of the work that the owners have put in.

“Going into the second round of the season, I feel we are in a good position as even though we had a small issue in the first race at Brands Hatch and didn’t quite have the outright pace, we came away from the weekend with some good points on the board.

“That has to be the main aim again at Donington, and obviously my target is to try and take my first victory for Motorbase. If it’s our time to win, then that is certainly what I’ll be trying to do.

“However, at this stage of the year it’s also important to make sure we are picking up points for the championship as consistency will be a key at the end of the year.

“I think the Focus will be well suited to Donington and although the grid is strong, I feel confident we can come away from the weekend with three good results to our name.”

After qualifying on Saturday 16 April at 15.35, the first of three BTCC races will be at 11.32 on Sunday, with race two at 14.27 and race three at 17.17. All three races will be broadcast on ITV4, whilst qualifying will be broadcast live on www.itv.com. Live timing and results from the weekend will be available at www.tsl-timing.com

All timings are subject to change.
