Andrew Jordan will be focussing more than ever as he tries to gain the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship points lead this weekend at Rockingham.

Despite no victories to his name so far in 2018, the BMW Pirtek Racing driver has been incredibly consistent and is only thirty-two points off the championship lead in sixth.

Three solid points finishes last time out at Snetterton highlighted Jordan as a contender and this weekend he’ll hope to build upon this as he visits the scene of his last victory in the championship.

At Rockingham, the Sutton Coldfield driver has been on the podium seven times and has scored three victories. Meanwhile the BMW marque have also had a strong record at the Northamptonshire circuit with seventeen podiums and seven victories.

Taking this into account, Jordan is optimistic of another consistent weekend at Rockingham,

“From the start of the season, I’ve said how important it is to keep picking up the points and that approach has served us well so far.

“It means we are heading to Rockingham in a good position in the championship having closed the gap at Snetterton, yet having also managed to shed some success ballast at the same time.

“We’re getting to that stage of the season now where there is less margin for error in terms of the points, and it is vital that we get the most we can out of every race.

“With that in mind, I’ll be pushing hard to try and fight for the podium positions this weekend to keep the pressure on those drivers ahead and want to try and put a big score on the board at a circuit that should play to the strengths of the Pirtek Racing BMW.”
