Snetterton Motor Racing Circuit: Jordan forced to sit out Snetterton qualif

Pirtek Racing's Andrew Jordan forced to sit out BTCC qualifying on medical grounds at Snetterton.
Defending BTCC champion Andrew Jordan will not take part this afternoon's qualifying as a medical precaution following his earlier FP1 shunt.

Despite setting the fourth fastest time in the opening practice session, Jordan's Pirtek Honda left the high speed turn one at the Norfolk circuit where he sustained a knock to the head as a result of the incident.

As a precaution Jordan was taken to the local hospital for routine checks before returning to the circuit where the BTCC medical team refused clearance for the championship contender to take part in this afternoon's running.

Jordan will face another check up from the medical team in the morning prior to tomorrow's races before being cleared fit to race.
