Jordan confident of podium run

2 June 2010

Andrew Jordan says he is confident of fighting for the podium at the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship heads for Oulton Park this weekend.

The Pirtek Racing man heads to Cheshire on the back of a strong showing during testing at Rockingham last week – where he set the quickest time ahead of Jason Plato – and will now look to pick up three solid finishes at the wheel of NGTC-engined Vauxhall Vectra.

“The aim for Oulton is to qualify well and focus on three strong scores in the races,” he said. “I'm definitely aiming for the top three and after the development we made at the Rockingham test I'm confident we'll be able to do it.

“I'd say there are a good few cars who could win this weekend and so it is going to be tough. The track will suit the BMWs with its long straights and uphill drags and you can't discount Jason (Plato) and Matt (Neal) from being at the front.

“We're still working hard with the new package of the TOCA Turbo engine and the Vectra but we made huge leaps forward at the test and we're in the best shape we have been all season.”
