Pirtek Squad Expect Close Racing At Silverstone

1 Mins read

Pirtek Racing's Andrew Jordan is expecting three hard fought races this weekend when the British Touring Car field competes on the National Circuit at Silverstone.

“With it being such a short lap at Silverstone, we know we have to get it all hooked up for qualifying, there's no margin for error because a tenth across the lap could cost you plenty of grid places for Sunday's first race,” said 21-year-old Jordan. “However, the power of our engine could certainly prove useful over the weekend for both straightline speed and getting a good exit out from the corners. We've solved our issues from the final race at Snetterton and we really hope to go out there and get back onto the podium.”

The team are among others in claiming the high-speed layout, which includes the venue's Wellington Straight (as used by the new Grand Prix Arena track), will suit their car – hoping the NGTC-spec turbo engine in the team's privateer Vectra will hand them an advantage.

After a disappointing end to the previous round at Snetterton, where Jordan's meeting ended with a mechanical problem stopping him from starting the final race, the focus is on scoring more valuable points.
