Andrew Jordan confident of strong MG performance at Thruxton


Staffordshire racing driver Andrew Jordan is hoping for a string of good results at Thruxton in the next round of the 2015 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

Jordan, from Lichfield, who won the championship in 2013, took his first podium finish of the season at Donington Park in the latest round of the series.

He came second behind Honda Yuasa racer Matt Neal, with Neal’s team mate Gordon Shedden in third place.

Now Jordan is looking to build on that result from Donington.

Speaking to StaffsLive, he said he is confident his new MG team can deliver when the BTCC circus makes the journey to Hampshire in two weeks.

“I’m really looking forward to Thruxton,” he said.

“It’s a track that I go well at, and I think we’ll be very strong around there, but it’s still a few weeks away yet.”

The 25-year-old has had a difficult start to this year’s BTCC season, with team mate Jack Goff out-scoring him in all three races of the opening round at Brands Hatch, but he bounced back strongly at Donington.

Jordan’s team, Triple Eight Racing, has had mixed results at the Hampshire circuit since the introduction of the team’s MG6 in 2012.

They have taken only three podium finishes, courtesy of double champion Jason Plato.

But Jordan’s Thruxton record speaks for itself.

Since 2011, he has taken five podium finishes, including a win, making him one to watch when the racing returns.
