Triple Eight's Andrew Jordan says he was pleased to equal his joint best qualifying result of the 2015 British Touring Car Championship season after posting the fourth quickest time at Snetterton.

The MG driver went into grid determining session having set the fastest time of the weekend during FP2 but was ultimately unable to match the searing performance of the all-conquering Team BMR's VW, come qualifying.

In trying to find further improvements from his opening attempt, Jordan admitted he went slightly in the wrong direction with the balance of his MG for his second and final run.

"Yeah, we've equalled our best qualifying from Oulton Park," said Jordan. "I made a change for the second run but I should have stuck with what I had from the first run. As a driver you always want more but the car was better in the first run.

"I'm really happy with my lap but I think trying to beat the VW's around here was always going to be tough. I haven't looked at the data but the lap felt really nice, happy with my job.

"You're always going to probably find a tenth here and there. Even on my Thruxton pole laps I can always see room for improvement but as qualifying runs go it was a really nice lap.

"I was up from sector one but I had a big moment on the brakes through there, which was frustrating but I was pushing on and trying."

Ahead of tomorrow's three races, Jordan says he will try to maintain the pace of the leading BMR Volkswagen's but won't jeopardise his chances of scoring solid points at the expense of ruining his tyres in the process.

"I'll just do my own race and try to go at their pace if I can. If it's hurting the tyres I'll hold back and think of the long game for the race. I think we'll good pace as it's been very close all day," Jordan continued.

"For qualifying we ran a fundamentally different set up from what we've run all year so now it's now how much we go back to that set up - or not - for the race. I'll let the engineers look at the data and see what they think.

"Anything can happen; we're in with a shout. The car had good pace today, certainly in FP2 and qualifying - it's all very close."
