Motorbase reveals Jordan’s Pirtek-backed Focus

Motorbase Performance reveals its distinctive Pirtek Racing-inspired livery for Andrew Jordan's Ford Focus.
Motorbase Performance has pulled the wraps off the Pirtek-backed Ford Focus ST new signing Andrew Jordan will drive in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

The former BTCC champion switches to Motorbase Performance from Triple Eight MG team he drove with in 2015, in turn bringing his familiar sponsorship from Pirtek with him to inspire a distinctive new livery.

For 2016, Jordan's Focus is adorned with the familiar blue, yellow and red design, albeit enhanced with a chrome wrap to help it stand out further.

“Moving across to Motorbase for next year we wanted to take the opportunity to change up the livery;” 2014 title winner Jordan said. “The idea came from the fans reaction to the chrome livery from earlier this year and we wanted to find a way to incorporate the Pirtek blue.

“I've always said that it's the best looking car on the grid and I think that's definitely the case now.”

“I think the new livery is stunning,” added team principal David Bartrum. “You have to stand out in the BTCC and I think the Pirtek car will certainly turn heads.

"You go racing to win races and championships but you've also got to deliver the brand for backers of the team and I think that the new livery says that Pirtek is back and back in a big way.”

A lack of sponsorship forced Motorbase Performance to miss a portion of the 2015 BTCC season, though it proved an immediate race winner when it did eventually return in the second-half of the year.
