Andrew Jordan say's MG are now finally in a position to consistently challenge at the top of the British Touring Car Championship field after making significant inroads on the set up of his Triple Eight machine.

The 2013 BTCC champion marked his return to form with a duo of podium finishes at Oulton Park last weekend, which has moved the MG racer to within 13-points of championship leader Jason Plato.

Jordan and Triple Eight arrived into 2015 tipped as one of the leading packages to beat but handling inefficiencies disguised the true performance of the MG6, until the team began began to turn attack from defence after making progress late on at Thruxton.

"Thank God we kept in touch over the first three rounds because we're in a position to challenge now. The top four are separated by 13 points so we're in the ball park now. Two podiums are great with a second, third and fourth," Jordan told crash.net.

The 14 time BTCC winner almost grabbed his first victory of the 2015 campaign at Oulton Park but West Surrey Racing's Sam Tordoff managed to divert the pressure Jordan hurled at the BMW during the final laps of race three.

"I tried everything in that last race but I just couldn't quite get there but with the success ballast which we had on I'm very happy with the pace we had," the MG racer continued.

"We've just got the car where we need it to be really. We're in an area now where we can fine tune it rather than having to change fundamental things."

Brimming in confidence, Jordan sees no reason in why he and Triple Eight MG can't turn the wick up on their championship crusade at Croft in two-weekend's time.

Jordan was victorious at Croft last season as he denied Colin Turkington a hatrick around the North Yorkshire circuit in what was his final victory aboard the Eurotech Honda Civic.

"Tails in the air now going to Croft because we're firmly in the title hunt, so yeah, we're feeling positive. We're in ball park now but more importantly, we're in contention, which is good."
