Andrew Jordan says he is 'ready to take risks' if he needs to in the fight for the 2013 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

The Pirtek Racing man goes into the second half of the campaign sitting 19 points behind Matt Neal on the back of a solid start to the campaign, which has included victories at both Donington Park and Oulton Park.

Jordan, who took the Independents' title last year, will now hope for a strong showing at Snetterton this weekend to kick-start the second half of the year and insisted he was ready to take risks - even if such an approach isn't currently the favoured one.

"There will be so many ups and downs for everyone over the second half of the year, so we just need to keep scoring," he said. "We'll take risks if we need to, but right now we really need to be consistent. There is still a long way to go."

Jordan added that he was unsure of what to expect when the field arrives in Norfolk this weekend, despite the two days of testing carried out at the circuit earlier this month.

"Testing was a bit hit and miss and we tried some things that didn't work," he said. "We tested with a lot of weight on the car and I think race two will be our strongest.

"Snetterton is the circuit where the success ballast hurts the most: there are so many stops and starts for very slow corners. We'll start the weekend with 36kg of ballast so we just need to keep being consistent. We had a win at Snetterton last year."
