Andrew Jordan has revealed his new-look BMW Pirtek BTCC livery for the 2019 season.
The 2013 British Touring Car Champion gets behind the wheel of the BMW 330i M Sport this season, run by defending champions West Surrey Racing, with a tweaked livery to team-mates Colin Turkington and Tom Oliphant due to his Pirtek sponsor backing.
Jordan is relishing the new BTCC campaign equipped with the BMW 3 Series which begins at Brands Hatch Indy on April 6-7.
“The work that has gone into the new BMW Pirtek Racing 3 Series in such a short amount of time is incredible and I think the end result looks fantastic,” Jordan said. “I have to say a massive thank you to all of the team, and everyone else who has been involved in the build, as they have really pulled out all the stops to get the car ready for the start of the season.
“As a road car, the new BMW 3 Series is a seriously good-looking machine and that’s certainly something that has carried across to the racing version. The design work that has gone into it is second to none, and the end result is a hugely impressive car that I think the whole team should feel very proud of.
“The 3 Series also really suits the new look Pirtek Racing livery that we’ll debut this season, which combines our traditional colours with flashes of white. Throughout my time with Pirtek, I’ve been lucky enough to race in some good-looking cars, but I think that the new BMW in our 2019 livery is the best of the lot.
“Whilst it is always a step into the unknown when you drive a new car for the first time, I’m hugely excited about getting behind the wheel of the BMW Pirtek Racing 3 Series for the first time, and the start of the season can’t come soon enough.”
BMW announced earlier this year it is replacing the BMW 125i M Sport, which guided reigning champion Colin Turkington to a third BTCC title in 2018, with the brand new 3 series. WSR have previously produced success with the 3 Series, when the 320si took Turkington to his maiden title in 2009.
The trio of new cars will undergo a shakedown today ahead of tomorrow's Media day test at Brands Hatch.
