His victory in round 17 of the 2012 British Touring Car Championship has seen Jordan close up on those ahead of him in the Championship as the season heads towards the business end and Jordan admits that he needs another weekend like he had at Snetterton.
“We’re certainly not out of it and a couple more days like that could really get us into the title battle,” explains Jordan, who is fourth on 218 points.
Jordan and the Pirtek Racing team know that they will have to use the strengths of the NGTC Honda Civic as it is now one of the slowest cars in straight line speed.
Their game plan for the weekend is to avoid any trouble which may kick off at the Fife circuit and the characteristics of the circuit means that the trip across the border is normally one of the most dramatic.
“You just need to score consistently at Knockhill and try and keep out of trouble. I’m looking forward to it,” he said. “I think we’ll be okay at Knockhill as our tyre grip is very good and there are not as many long straights for us to lose out on.”
Jordan also has a 48 point advantage at the head of the Independents’ standings while the team lead the way in the Independent Teams’ standings ahead of rounds 19, 20 and 21 of the 2012 campaign.
