The journey towards a second Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship title in 2018 is not over according to Andrew Jordan who sees Silverstone as a great opportunity to get himself closer to Colin Turkington who currently heads the table.

Following a weekend at Knockhill where the BMW Pirtek Racing driver scored two podiums which included his first victory this season, the twenty-nine year old boosted himself into fourth in the drivers standings where he now lies fifty-nine points away from first.

Despite 48kg of ballast on his BMW 125i M Sport, AJ is confident of increasing his current points haul and also aiding BMW towards the manufacturers championship.

“We’re in a good position in the standings on the back of a strong weekend at Knockhill and we have to make it count during the two meetings still to come.

“It will be tough to catch Colin [Turkington] at the head of the standings with the lead he has, but that won’t stop me from pushing hard and a top three championship finish is certainly within reach.

“We know that Silverstone as a circuit won’t suit the BMW in the same way that Knockhill did, but I go there in confident mood and with good momentum behind me, and we have to just maximise what we have.

“It’s all about being clever on track in order maintain our championship challenge and keep ourselves in the hunt going to Brands Hatch for the season finale.”
