BTCC champion Jordan to make Daytona debut

BTCC Independents' champion Andrew Jordan has been called up to race on the support bill at next month's Daytona 24 Hours.
BTCC champion Andrew Jordan will get the chance to race in the USA for the first time in his career when he contests Grand-Am's Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Daytona in January.

The 2012 Independents' class champion will compete in a rather different Honda when he travels to Florida to race on the support bill at the world-famous Daytona 24 Hours over 26-27 January, having been invited to pilot Compass360 Racing's Civic Si as co-driver to fellow Brit and C360R veteran James Colborn.

"I want to seize any opportunity like this that comes along," Jordan said, "It will be a fantastic chance to race on the high-banks of the famed Daytona Speedway and I know I will learn a lot from racing in a different country. Racing at Daytona has always been one of my ambitions and I hope that this drive could lead to the chance to tackle the 24-hour race one day."

Toronto-based C360R has run Street Tuner-class Hondas for many years, winning the Continental championship twice, and Jordan's #77 CSTCC car is one of two that the team will field for Team Seattle, a charity that was created 16 years ago to raise money for the Team Seattle Guild, which benefits the Cardiac Care Unit at Seattle Children's Hospital. In that time, the project has raised more than $5 million for the hospital.

"I'm thrilled to have been invited to race for the team and am determined to repay their faith in me with a good result," Jordan continued, "While helping them to raise more money for the charity is the first objective, for me, it is also a great chance to broaden my experience, which can only be good for our 2013 BTCC campaign with Pirtek Racing."
