About Pirtek Racing

The Pirtek Racing team is managed by Mike Jordan, who raced for the team in 2006, with his son Andrew driving alongside for the first time in 2008. After a season driving for the factory Vauxhall VX Racing squad in 2009, Andrew returned to the team in 2010.

2010 also saw Pirtek come on board as title sponsor, and with this backing the team has risen to championship-winning stature over the past three seasons. Independent teams’ and drivers’ champions in 2012, Andrew Jordan and the Pirtek Racing team went one better in 2013 to clinch one of the most exciting BTCC titles to date. The team returned in 2014 with Jordan and returning driver Martin Depper, with Jordan finishing fifth in the overall championship and third independent drivers’.

Andrew Jordan and Pirtek Racing returned to battle for the 2015 championship title in a new MG6 GT in the works MG team and Triple Eight Racing finishing fifth in the overall championship with a total of five podium finishes as well as taking part in selected historic events and World and European Rallycross.

2016 saw Pirtek Racing return to the British Touring Car Championship with Andrew Jordan behind the wheel of the Motorbase run Ford Focus where he finished on a high taking home the Independents Champion trophy for the third time.  The 2017 season begins at Brands Hatch on the 2nd April with Andrew Jordan and Pirtek Racing in the manufacturer backed BMW run by WSR Racing and it promises to be an exciting season as we also see the return of young driver Jamie Caroline who will be entering the British F4 championship in Pirtek Racing colours for the second year running! 

About the Driver

Jordan’s racing career began back in 2003 in the Junior Rallycross championship. He went on to win the winter series in his first season and became BTRDA Junior Rallycross champion the following year. Further success in the rallycross discipline followed until 2008 when he made the switch to the BTCC. That year he drove a Eurotech/John Guest Racing Honda Integra and was 13th overall with two podiums. In 2009 Jordan made history at Donington Park behind the wheel of his VX Racing Vauxhall Vectra, becoming the youngest ever driver to score a BTCC pole position.

Over the past four years, Jordan has matured as part of the family-run Pirtek Racing squad into one of the fastest and most consistent touring car drivers around, winning the Independents’ title in 2012, and going one better in a stunning 2013 season to take the overall BTCC Drivers’ championship.

About the Car

Since the MG6 made its British Touring Car debut at Brands Hatch in 2012 it has been the class of the field. In three years of racing the MG6 scored more wins and pole-positions than any other car on the track, and was a level above the other front-wheel-drive competition.

By the nature of the road-car chassis that forms the basis of the race car, the MG is a low-downforce, low-drag racer. This has obviously straight-line benefits, but causes challenges in traffic with front-end grip and brake cooling.
In 2014 design tweaks were made by Triple Eight that helped provide an estimated boost of 0.18s over the previous car, added downforce, as well as improving cooling by 20 per-cent. Read More
