Knockhill challenge for Jordan and Pirtek Racing

18/08/2015 | Racing

The unique challenge of the moorland track at Knockhill in Scotland awaits Pirtek Racing’s Andrew Jordan in rounds 19, 20 and 21 of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at the Fife circuit (22/23 August).

Just two weeks after the fast straights of Snetterton, the Pirtek Racing MG6 GT will take on the rather different challenge of the tricky Scottish track where a lot of corners and elevation change are packed into an all-action 1.3-mile lap. Knockhill is renowned for delivering spectacular BTCC racing and the cars are regularly flying high over the kerbs as drivers chase tiny fractions of a second. Last year, 22 BTCC drivers were covered by just one second in qualifying.

By his own high standards, 2015 has been a mixed season for Andrew in the MG6 GT run by Triple Eight Racing. He now lies fifth in the overall drivers’ points with 12 of the season’s 30 races still to run. With a 41-point deficit to championship leader Jason Plato, Andrew says that repeating his 2013 BTCC title is a very long shot. But what he certainly wants from the balance of the season are more race wins to add to his tally of 14 BTCC victories to date.

“We need to qualify well at Knockhill,” said Andrew of a track where overtaking is always very difficult. “The racing at Knockhill is always close and the weather is often another factor. The championship is a really long shot now and I just want to win some races and get some more podiums.”

Pirtek is Europe's number one provider of fluid transfer solutions and mobile hose replacement, with over 170 centres supported by over 700 mobile service workshops throughout Europe. Offering solutions to a number of business sectors, including the automotive industry.

After qualifying on Saturday 22 August at 15.05, the first of three BTCC races will be at 11.45 on Sunday, with race two at 14.15 and race three at 17.05. All three races will be broadcast on ITV4 in a programme starting at 10.45 and running to 18.10. Qualifying will be broadcast live at www.itv.com and live results from the weekend will be available at www.tsl-timing.com
