Former Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Champion Andrew Jordan is hoping to get his championship assault back on track this weekend as the series heads to Oulton Park.

Following a win in the opening round at Brands Hatch the BMW 125i Sport driver has struggled with results, despite showing promising pace on track.

“We’ve been unlucky in the past two meetings, and the results at both Donington Park and Thruxton haven’t been a fair reflection of our pace,” he said.

“That’s how it goes sometimes in a championship as tight as this, but having had our fair share of bad luck, I’m hoping that Oulton Park will see our fortunes improve.”

The BMW Pirtek Racing driver is currently in eleventh position in the championship after three rounds and is targeting podium positions this weekend as the Cheshire circuit traditionally suits rear-wheel drive cars.

“It’s one of the real old school circuits on the calendar and one that has been good to me in the past. I really enjoy driving there and I go into the weekend in confident mood given how strong the real wheel drive cars have been in recent years.”

An addition to the lack of results means that Jordan heads in to the weekend with the benefit of no additional ballast on his car.

“The lack of success ballast can only help, and I’ll be looking to make the most of that in qualifying to put us right in the mix for race day. I’m keen to pick up three strong results to get my season back on track and want to come away from the weekend with a trophy or two.”
