Jordan returns to World Rallycross with EKS Audi

28/09/2015 | Racing

Andrew Jordan will contest World RX of Italy (16-18 October), the penultimate round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy.
 
The 2013 British Touring Car Champion, who first made his name in rallycross and won the 2007 British Rallycross Supercar title, will race an Audi S1 EKS RX quattro as he replaces EKS driver and team owner Mattias Ekstrom who is unable to attend Italy RX.
 
Last year Andrew finished on the podium at World RX of Great Britain at Lydden Hill when he drove an Olsbergs MSE prepared Ford Fiesta.
 
“Getting the opportunity to drive in such a great team, with these amazing partners on board is something I’m really proud of and hopefully I can do them all justice,” explained Jordan.
 
“The power of a Supercar blows my mind. I’ll try to fill Mattias’ seat, but he has raised the bar very much this year. It will be a case of going in at the deep end, as I’ve never been to the Italian round before but I’ll do my homework. We need to work hard and learn the circuit quickly. To get to the final would be very special, but that’s a big ask. It’s a great opportunity for me.”
 
Ekstrom said: “Andrew has a lot of experience in rallycross and has showed some impressive performances in the past. He is also very experienced from circuit racing in the BTCC, and race drivers can give the team good ideas to move forward. I’m very excited to get Andrew’s feedback about our Audi S1 EKS RX quattro. I hope he can manage a clean weekend, has a lot of fun and gets a fair result at Franciacorta.”
 
World RX of Italy will be staged at the Franciacorta circuit in Brescia, northern Italy, and runs from 16-18 October.
