Former British Touring Car Champion Andrew Jordan has secured a one-off entry to the British round of the FIA World Rallycross championship at Lydden Hill.

Jordan will be entered under MJP Racing Team Austria alongside World RX regular Kevin Eriksson as Timo Scheider's replacement in his Ford Fiesta RX Supercar.

Jordan has a wealth of experience in rallycross having started his career in the British Junior Rallycross Championship in 2004. In 2014 he finished on the podium at Lydden Hill when he drove an Olsbergs MSE prepared Ford Fiesta.

"It's brilliant to join MJP Racing Team Austria for the British round of the 2017 FIA World Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill," Jordan said. "Rallycross Supercars are so impressive to drive, the level of cars and teams has stepped up massively over the last couple of years and I'm very lucky to get to drive one for MJP Racing Team Austria.

"Rallycross holds great memories for me from when I started racing at 14-years-old to standing on a World Rallycross podium, I love the sport and I'm hugely proud to compete at my home event.

"For sure it is just a one off but I think we will have great potential to make some great result."

World Rallycross visits Lydden Hill on the 26-28 May.
