Jordan Looking To Press On In Second Half Of BTCC Season

Andrew Jordan wants his Pirtek Racing team to make their strong qualifying record count in the second half of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season.

Jordan is joint fourth in the overall driver rankings, leading the Independents' Trophy, with Pirtek a very close second in the Independent Teams' Trophy.

He has been one of the series' most consistent performers – the only driver to have qualified in the top four at all five rounds – but is eager to start converting his front row starts.

Like many teams, the Pirtek Civic has been pounding in the testing mileage, something Jordan believes stand the team in good stead for the second half of the season.

“We need to start scoring higher,” he said. “It's good to be consistent, but we need to be getting wins and seconds.

“The pace is there: we've just got to put it all together. The car was already very good now, but there were still a lot of things we wanted to try in the summer break.”

Yet to win this season in the new Honda, the no.77 driver believes the car will be better suited to the twistier Snetterton layout than his Vauxhall last year, where he struggled.

“It was good to go into the summer break in good shape and I'm really looking forward to the second half of the season. A lot of the corners at Snetterton should really suit the NGTC cars, so I think we'll be strong from now on in.”
