Jordan hoping to get back on podium at Silverstone

Andrew Jordan: We've solved our issues from the final race at Snetterton and we really hope to go out there and get back onto the podium.

Pirtek Racing's Andrew Jordan is aiming for at least one rostrum finish at Silverstone this weekend, venue for the latest round in the 2010 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

The BTCC field races on the much shorter and tighter National Circuit configuration at Silverstone opposed to the traditional Grand Prix layout. The nature of a lap on the National Circuit generates much closer and tighter racing and with plenty of long straights the TOCA turbo engine in the Pirtek Racing Vauxhall will hopefully be able to seek out an advantage over its rivals.

"With it being such a short lap at Silverstone, we know we have to get it all hooked up for qualifying, there's no margin for error because a tenth across the lap could cost you plenty of grid places for Sunday's first race," Jordan said.

"However, the power of our engine could certainly prove useful over the weekend for both straightline speed and getting a good exit out from the corners.

"We've solved our issues from the final race at Snetterton and we really hope to go out there and get back onto the podium.

"It's always a good feeling coming into Silverstone, it's great to race at the Grand Prix facility especially as the racing is always very close for the fans to enjoy.

"We have a lot of support wherever we go in the country, but Silverstone seems to bring even more people out to cheer us on and I'm really looking forward to hopefully scoring plenty of Championship points to give them something to shout about," he concluded.
