Andrew Jordan says he needs to increase the pressure at the top and start collecting more rostrums to put himself back in the mix for the British Touring Car Championship title.

BTCC resumes this weekend at Snetterton after its six-week summer break with Jordan sixth in the drivers' standings with five rounds remaining. The 2013 BTCC champion, along with his team-mate Jack Goff, are the only two competitors inside the top ten yet to claim a race victory this season, something Jordan is aiming to change in Norfolk.

"My view on the championship is that we were in it down to my consistency until Croft and before then my mind-set was about collecting the points," Jordan said. "I'm targeting race wins and podiums and if there is a sniff of a win I'm going to be taking it."

The 26-year-old, who recently renewed a sponsorship deal with long term partner Pirtek, ended last month's BTCC Dunlop tyre test second fastest on the timesheet at Snetterton and is in an upbeat mood ahead of the race weekend.

"When we took part in the tyre test last month, the car ran within the top two and three in terms of pace so I feel that we should be challenging towards the front this weekend," he said. "It doesn't always work out that way, but I am full of confidence because of the test and the progress we as a team made."
