Championship glory for Andrew Jordan and Pirtek Racing

03/10/2016 | Racing

Pirtek Racing’s Andrew Jordan enjoyed a successful end to the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season after wrapping up the Independents title at Brands Hatch.

Andrew went into the weekend embroiled in a two-way fight for the title with his Motorbase Performance team-mate Mat Jackson, whilst he was also one of eight drivers still in with a mathematical chance of the overall title.

Qualifying 13th on the grid after a challenging session held in mixed weather conditions, Andrew was confident of making up places in the opening race but was unfortunately forced to retire on the second lap when he was unable to avoid the stricken car of Hunter Abbott after the Chevrolet driver suffered a spin at Druids.

Hard work from his team in the pits allowed Andrew to take his place at the back of the grid for race two, and a fine performance saw him scythe his way through the field to 13th place by the flag.

Eleventh in race three allowed Andrew to secure the Independents’ title for the third time in his career, having previously taken the honour in both 2012 and 2013.

Alongside his overall title in 2013, it meant a fourth championship success for Pirtek Racing at the end of a solid season that included two overall victories and five podium finishes.

“The main aim coming to Brands Hatch was to wrap up the Independents’ title and I’m delighted to have taken it for the third time,” Andrew said. “It certainly wasn’t as easy as it could have been after the incident in race one, but we came back strong in race two and that allowed me to make sure we got the job done.

“As ever in this game, there have been ups and downs as the season has gone, but on the whole I’m really pleased with how it has gone. I’ve come away from the season with two wins to my name and we have shown strong pace throughout the year, which has ultimately seen me rewarded with a title at the end of it.

“I’m particularly proud to have helped Motorbase win its first BTCC titles and I think we have built the foundations for something good for the future. Having wrapped up the Indy title, there is no doubt that I have my eyes on the main prize again in 2017.”
