Triple Eight Racing's Andrew Jordan believes there are still plenty of twists and turns left in this season's British Touring Car Championship title race after the weekend's action at Snetterton leaves him fifth in the standings.

The 2013 BTCC champion scooped a trio a top-seven finishes around the Norfolk circuit, which has moved Jordan within striking distance and a position further up the points standings after beginning the weekend in sixth.

Despite starting the day well with a fourth in race one, contact from Dave Newsham during the second race damaged the suspension of Jordan's MG, meaning he could fare no better than seventh.

However, Jordan was able to take solace from Gordon Shedden's miserable Snetterton weekend, which has gone some way in opening up the title race with four events to go - starting with Knockhill in two-weekend's time.

Team BMR's Jason Plato now leads the championship, 41-points ahead of Jordan in fifth.

"I'm frustrated because of race two. I got hit from behind and that bent my suspension, so that was frustrating," Jordan told

"But it's still pretty tight in the championship; we're nine off points off third. While the incident in race two frustrates me, because it pretty much wiped me out with broken suspension, the carnage also took Shedden out of the race as well.

"We're still a long way back in the championship but there's a long way to go. We've seen that the Honda's had a really bad day so we have to keep optimistic."

Indeed, Jordan praised his Triple Eight squad over the step forward in performance the defending BTCC manufacturers' champions has unlocked from the 2015-spec MG6 GT challenger.

That progress was vindicated by Jack Goff giving MG their first victory of the 2015 BTCC campaign. And while Jordan was disappointed in not being able to deliver the win himself, the Red Bull athlete commended his team mate's impressive efforts.

"Of course I'm disappointed that I wasn't the one to win the race," said Jordan.

"But it was a great job by Jack [Goff] and we've made a step forward with car pace this weekend. We're still a fair way back in the championship but the ground we've made the car makes me confident that we're moving in the right direction.

"We've been a bit behind in the first half of the year but there's still more to come from the MG."
