Andrew Jordan and Pirtek Racing keen to maintain momentum at Croft

09/06/2017 | Racing

BMW Pirtek Racing’s Andrew Jordan will seek to build on the strong results he enjoyed last time out at Oulton Park when the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship heads for Croft this weekend for the fifth meeting of the year.

Andrew enjoyed his best weekend to date at the wheel of his West Surrey Racing-run BMW 125i M Sport last month in Cheshire, with a second victory of the season in the opening race being followed by a further podium finish in the final race of the weekend.

Those results allowed Andrew to move up to seventh in the championship standings heading to a circuit where rear-wheel drive cars have traditionally been strong in the past – taking five of the last six race wins in North Yorkshire.

Andrew himself has fond memories of the circuit dating back to the earliest stages of his career, with Croft having been the venue where he contested his first car race as a 14-year-old competing in Rallycross.

Croft was also the venue where he secured his first BTCC victory – which was also the first for Pirtek Racing – back in 2010, with a second win amongst the five podium finishes he has secured at the former airfield venue.

Buoyed by his success last time out, Andrew will hope to secure similar results this time around to ensure he is able to head into the BTCC’s traditional summer break on a high, with his main focus being to close the gap to the drivers ahead in the title race.

“Coming off such a strong weekend at Oulton Park, my confidence is on a real high heading to Croft,” he said. “It’s a circuit that has great memories for me as I took part in my first race there – and won – when I was 14, and also won there for the first time in the BTCC.

“Croft in the past has suited rear wheel drive cars, which should put us in a good position with the BMW, although I think the front wheel drive cars will also be strong – particularly in qualifying.

“It’s important that we play the long game as I feel the BMW will be good across a race distance, and whilst more wins and podiums are the aim, my focus is on three strong points finishes to help my championship position.”

After qualifying on Saturday 10 June at 16.00, the first of three BTCC races will be at 12.07 on Sunday, with race two at 14.44 and race three at 17.21.

                                          

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
