Triple Eight Racing's Andrew Jordan has warned that there is more to come from the MG ahead of qualifying for round 22 of the British Touring Car Championship at Rockingham.

The 2013 BTCC champion set the quickest time of the day so far during the earlier FP2 session but admitted he wasn't totally satisfied with his 1 minute 22.553 second effort.

Jordan's time also came within two-tenths of beating Jason Plato's pole lap record, which was achieved during the 2013 season whilst the 92-time race winner was driving for the MG squad.

The current MG racer also remains wary of what Plato could be capable of having studied the Volkswagen CC's sector times from FP2.

"I think we've still got a bit to find. I've seen Jason's [Plato] sector times so we've got a bit to find. The lap wasn't great and I was surprised to have been quickest with it. We're in the ball park, which is good," said Jordan.

"Improvements from the car and myself are needed for qualifying. I'm looking forward to it, it was a good session."

Allied to Jordan's FP2 attack, Jack Goff's fourth fastest time set in FP2 also vindicated MG's threat around the Rockingham circuit.

Jordan says the similar feedback given by both cars will help the Triple Eight squad implement the changes needed as they head into qualifying.

"Looking at the data - despite being 30 kilos heavier than Jack [Goff] - we've got similar feedback. The engineers can look at the same handling characteristics to work on," Jordan continued.

"I think the lap record will probably go. There was a shower forecasted for 1 o'clock but I think it will be dry for qualifying."
