Andrew Jordan Gets Captaincy Role For Goodwood Members Meeting


Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship ace Andrew Jordan will be a House Captain in the 74th Goodwood Members Meeting over the weekend of 19/20 March.

The 2013 BTCC champion will race in the Alan Mann Trophy for pre-1966 Ford GT40s, as well as a Mini 1275GT in the Gerry Marshall Trophy for the iconic Group 1 touring cars of the late 1970s and early ‘80s at the exclusive Members’ Meeting.

The 26-year-old will become a House Captain for the first time at the event for its 74th Members Meeting next month, replacing French ace Nicolas Minassian who will no longer captain the Aubigny House as he instead competes in the 12 Hours of Sebring.

Drivers will be grouped into four ‘Houses’ for the meeting for which they score points for throughout the weekend, visitors also eligible to score in a selection of quirky off-track games.

“To be asked to be a house captain is something I am very proud of”, said former BTCC champion, Jordan.

“I love the events Goodwood puts on and, to now be a part of the fantastic Members’ Meeting is very exciting. We are all drivers and very competitive, so the main aim is to have our house win; that said, I am sure we will all have some fun with great racing along the way.”

Three high-speed demonstration runs will also celebrate some of the most iconic racing cars in the sport’s varied history.
