Andrew Jordan and Pirtek Racing keen to strengthen championship bid

27/07/2016 | Racing

Pirtek Racing’s Andrew Jordan will aim to strengthen his position in the title race when the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season resumes this weekend with the sixth round of the year at Snetterton.

Andrew makes the trip to Norfolk as the man to beat in the Independents Trophy, while he is also well in contention for overall honours; lying just 37 points behind the leader in fourth spot.

So far this season, Andrew has been a model of consistency at the wheel of his Motorbase Performance-run Ford Focus, scoring points in every race bar one and also making a return to the top step of the podium with an impressive win at Thruxton back in May.

Buoyed by an impressive performance during a two-day long Dunlop tyre test at Snetterton last month, where he posted the second quickest time, Andrew goes into the weekend in confident mood at a circuit where he has won on two occasions in the past.

A third win is very much the aim for the 27-year-old this time around, with Andrew’s focus firmly on scoring as many points as possible to boost his championship bid.

“It’s really close in the standings going into the second half of the season, and I think that is something that is going to continue right through to the end of the year,” he said. “It shows how important it is to be consistent and to score at every opportunity, which is what we have done so far this year.

“Heading to Snetterton this weekend, I’m feeling confident about our chances and think we are in good shape on the back of the two-day Dunlop tyre test at the circuit last month. The pace we showed in the test was encouraging, and means we have a good base from which to start when we hit the track for free practice on Saturday morning.

“While I want to make sure I maintain my advantage at the head of the Independent standings, it’s also important to start putting the pressure on the drivers ahead in the overall championship; especially as no-one has yet been able to break away in the points.

“Podium finishes at the least are the target this weekend and if I can score some big points, we can really lay down a marker for the second half of the year.”

After qualifying on Saturday 30 July at 15.50, the first of three BTCC races will be at 11.32 on Sunday, with race two at 14.02 and race three at 17.02. 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
