Double score and disappointment for Jordan

12 August 2010

Andrew Jordan secured a double points finish in the latest rounds of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship although his weekend at Snetterton ended in disappointing fashion when he was forced out of race three.

On a high after his victory at Croft prior to the summer break, Jordan qualified sixth for the opening race before finishing race in ninth place after picking up damaged suspension while fighting for position with Matt Neal.

The Pirtek Racing driver followed that up with a fine drive to sixth place in race two before an overheating engine on his way to the grid forced the youngster to retire before the final race even got underway.

“In race one, we struggled with our tyres in the heat,” he said. “We had also gone in the wrong direction slightly with set-up which didn't help, but we rectified it for race two. The car felt the best it had all weekend in the second race after a few tweaks and that really showed in our pace. I was able to push the car more and I had much more confidence to be able to go up against the BMW's and Honda's.

“I was optimistic going into the last race that we could have a good result and as always we were aiming for the podium, so to have the issue with the engine was frustrating. However we continued to show we are able to run well within the top ten and I'm sure we have plenty more in the pipeline for Silverstone.”
