MG Triple Eight Racing's Andrew Jordan has dismissed any chance of capturing a second British Touring Car Championship title at this weekend's Brands Hatch GP finale but believes third place may well be within his grasp.

The 2013 BTCC champion arrives at the Brands Hatch title decider on the fringe of contention but would have to overturn a 64 point deficit to stand any chance of beating Honda's Gordon Shedden to the crown.

With Jordan admitting that Shedden is too far up the road, the MG driver says his main focus will be on attempting to elevate himself ahead of Matt Neal and to split the two Team BMR Volkswagen CC's of Jason Plato and defending champion Colin Turkington.

Jordan is still chasing his first win in MG colours but the Red Bull backed driver ended a run of twelve races without scoring a podium last time out at Silverstone.

"We go into the weekend as one of the championship contenders but there is no real reason for us to think about it; what we need to happen is too much to ask," said Jordan.

"Instead, I'd like to think we can still take third in the standings, but that will be a tough ask. I'll give it my all because I just want to round out the season on a high. More podiums will be the aim and obviously I'll be gunning for my first MG win as well.

"Brands Hatch GP is a great circuit though and the perfect place to end the season. It's a really old school circuit and requires a lot of commitment when you go onto the loop. I love the place though and I can't wait to get out on track."

Jordan's Triple Eight squad also stand within a chance of denying Honda the manufacturers' crown but the 26-year old and his MG team mate Jack Goff must breach a 64-point gap to retain the title.
