Andrew Jordan unveils striking livery for 2016

MSA British Touring Car Championship front-runner Andrew Jordan unveiled the livery that will adorn his Motorbase Performance Ford Focus for the 2016 season today at Silverstone.

The 2013 BTCC Champion switched teams at the end of the 2015 season, taking with him his Pirtek backing; A new twist to the Pirtek livery sees the Ford Focus sport a blue chrome base.

“The Pirtek Racing livery is now an iconic livery in motor racing and it has a very strong following,” said Andrew. “We’ve gone for a brighter blue and it looks very distinctive. It is very, very impressive and I’m sure the car is going to go as well as it looks!”

This season at Snetterton Jordan run a one-off chrome livery to celebrate a new three-year sponsorship deal and the new scheme was chosen due to the positive response from fans.

The 2016 BTCC season starts at Brands Hatch on 3 April and Jordan will be hoping to carry the momentum built up by Mat Jackson at the end of the 2015 season in to the new year.

Motorbase Performance Team Principal David Bartrum added: “I think the new livery is stunning. You have to stand out in the BTCC and I think the Pirtek car will certainly turn heads.

Jordan also recently revealed that he was working on a deal that would see him race at the Lydden Hill round of the World Rallycross Championship.
