Andrew Jordan: We Have A Good Car Under Us

1 Mins read

Andrew Jordan didn’t have the best of times at Oulton Park after a collision with Andy Neate put him out of one race and technical gremlins struck during the other two.

Despite scoring no points at the last round he isn’t going to let it get him down as he heads to Croft with the Pirtek team.

“We know right now we have a good car under us,” said Jordan. “Probably the best we've had all season and still improving. When we were on track at Oulton we had a great competitive pace and without problems we could've been running at the front. Sometimes you have tough weekends in racing but that then makes the success even sweeter when you achieve it. The team has been working hard and we have ensured that we've focused any frustrations we had on making sure we can achieve a strong result next time out.”

In 2009 Jordan performed well in the works VXR team alongside seasoned drivers Fabrizio Giovanardi and Matt Neal. “Last year at Croft I was the quickest of the Vauxhall's in qualifying and I had a fastest lap in one of the races, so I know we can run well. There are some quick corners out the back of the track which are mixed with a slow speed complex at the end which requires you to be disciplined and smooth with your driving. I think the power of the TOCA engine will come into play in the hairpin at the last corner where the torque of the turbo engine will benefit us and give us a good sling-shot to the line.”

“It'd be great to head into the six week summer break with a good haul of points and a renewed vigour for the second half of the year.”

Jordan is currently in tenth place in the overall championship and eighth in the Independents.
