Andrew Jordan and Pirtek Racing seek return to form at Thruxton

03/05/2017 | Racing

BMW Pirtek Racing’s Andrew Jordan will look to return to form in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship when the series heads to the Thruxton circuit in Hampshire this weekend for the third round of the year.

Andrew goes into the weekend sitting seventh in the championship standings after a challenging outing on home soil at Donington Park last time out.

There, despite showing strong pace throughout at the wheel of his West Surrey Racing-run BMW 125i M Sport, Andrew was limited to a brace of 15th place finishes – with contact from other drivers in two of the three races hampering his challenge.

Eager to put the Donington weekend behind him, Andrew will now seek to challenge for a second victory of the season at a circuit where he has traditionally gone well in the past.

In fact, in five of the last six seasons, Andrew has come away from the Thruxton meeting with at least one podium finish to his name, including twelve months ago when he secured an impressive victory in the second race of the weekend.

Pre-event testing at the quickest circuit on the BTCC calendar last month saw Andrew set the fastest lap amongst the rear-wheel drive cars, with the 27-year-old now hoping to convert his pace into three strong results on race day.

“Donington last time out was a tough weekend as we showed great pace with the BMW but just didn’t have any luck,” he said. “That’s behind us now, and the focus is firmly on securing the best results possible when we get to Thruxton.

“Thruxton is my favourite circuit on the calendar and it holds some great memories for me – and has provided a few highlights on YouTube of some ‘on the edge’ laps across the years! It’s a circuit that I am always excited about visiting, and this season is no different.

“One of the big strengths of the BMW is that it is good on its tyres, which is something that is particularly important over a race distance at Thruxton. My aim is to maintain my strong record there in the past and challenge for podium finishes, and obviously to try and secure a victory for a second successive season.”

After qualifying on Saturday 6 May at 16.10, the first of three BTCC races will be at 12.12 on Sunday, with race two at 14.32 and race three at 17.17.
 
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
