Andrew Jordan is set to compete in the British round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill in a works Peugeot 208 WRX machine.

The former British Touring Car champion made a one-off appearance in the same event 12 months ago, finishing third in the final, and has strong rallycross pedigree after claiming the British rallycross Supercar title in 2007.

"It's a fantastic opportunity for me and it is thanks to my relationship with Red Bull that I've got this chance to compete at Lydden," said Andrew. "Last year was my first time in a Rallycross supercar since 2007 and I finished on the podium. This year I want to build on that and there is no reason why I can't be challenging for overall victory."
