Jordan and Pirtek Racing ready for BTCC opener

29/03/2016 | Racing

Andrew Jordan and Pirtek Racing will kick-start their assault on the 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship this weekend [2/3 April] when the series heads to the famous Brands Hatch circuit in Kent for the opening rounds of the year.

Andrew goes into the new season with his sights firmly set on challenging for a second championship title, and with a solid winter of testing under his belt at the wheel of his new Motorbase Performance-run Ford Focus.

Recent months have seen Andrew hard at work getting used to his new machine and also building his relationship with his new team, with a number of tests having taken place around the UK and overseas.

Buoyed by a positive session at Brands Hatch earlier this month, Andrew goes into the opening three races of the new season in a confident mood, as he looks to maintain an impressive record that has seen him secure pole at the tight 1.21 mile circuit in two of the last three seasons.

Andrew has also finished on the podium in half of the past dozen races run on the challenging Indy circuit 

“I think it will be super close at Brands Hatch; it always is around the Indy layout,” he admits. “With no success ballast in any of the cars, qualifying gives a real indication of where everyone sits in the pecking order and it should be one of the most exciting sessions of the year.

“Brands Hatch is a circuit I really enjoy and I’ve had a good run of pole positions there in the past. My first aim this weekend is to try and qualify on pole again this season, and it would be a great way to start my time with Motorbase if I could put the Focus on the front of the grid at their home circuit.

“We know from testing that we have a good package and when all the talking stops come race day, I want to be in the mix for wins.”

After qualifying on Saturday 2 April at 15.40, the first of three BTCC races will be at 11.32 on Sunday, with race two at 14.12 and race three at 17.12. All three races will be broadcast on ITV4. Qualifying will be broadcast live at www.itv.com and live results from the weekend will be available at www.tsl-timing.com
