Having called time on his BTCC career at the end of the 2008 season, Mike Jordan has revealed he will team up with Stuart Scott for an entry into the 2009 Britcar Production Championship.

The pair will compete in a Ford Mustang GT4 during the season ahead, with the car being run by Jordan's new outfit JordanSport.co.uk.

Steve Wood will join the pair for the longer events on the calendar as well as those Jordan is unable to take part as he follows son Andrew's first year as a works BTCC driver.

"I'm really enthusiastic about this new programme," Jordan said. "When I called time on my BTCC career, I was always hoping that this type of opportunity would come along. I like the look of the Mustang and I like American cars in general. The Mustang is a car with more power then grip, so it's right up my street."

Team-mate Scott said he was pleased to confirm the deal for the season ahead.

"I've always had a wish to race something American and the Mustang GT4 ticked all the boxes," he said. "I had no idea at the time that it was a car that Mike also likes. I spent two or three years with Mike's team with the Porsche 911 GT3 and the most productive time I ever spent was at a Snetterton test with just the two of us.

"I learnt so much from him that day and to have him racing with me this season will be brilliant."
