Triple Eight Racing MG's Andrew Jordan has set himself the target of achieving a trio of top-six finishes during what the 2013 British Touring Car champion expects to be a 'spicy' weekend of racing at Knockhill.

The BTCC makes its annual pilgrimage to Scotland's iconic Knockhill circuit with 42-points covering the top-six runners in this year's title race - which, is currently led by Team BMR's Jason Plato.

Coming off the back of a solid haul of points at Snetterton, Jordan says proficiently adding to his current tally will require a fine balancing act of 'calculated aggression' around a circuit which usually throws up a dramatic weekend of racing.

Despite not reaching the top-step of the podium so far in 2015, Jordan has consistently rattled home the points all season, leaving the Red Bull athlete within 41 of the championship summit with four events to go.

"Knockhill always makes for a good weekend of racing - usually pretty hard racing," Jordan told crash.net.

"You want to do as well as you can but if you can come away from Knockhill with three top-six results, you've done alright because of how feisty the racing is around there.

"We'll see how well we qualify and gauge how aggressive we need to be. It's just a juggling act, a real fine balance of being aggressive but scoring points."

Incidentally, the MG6 GT became the season's latest winner following Jack Goff's maiden BTCC triumph at Snetterton but Jordan expects BMW and Honda to hit the ground running around the Fife circuit.

Historically, Knockhill has never played towards the strengths of the MG - despite Sam Tordoff starting from pole position there last season.

"Knockhill hasn't traditionally been the best circuit for the MG over the last few years. It's probably going to be a BMW and Honda circuit but we'll be trying and you never know what the weather can throw up. It's always a spicy weekend."
