Andrew Jordan predicts Oulton ‘struggles’

Andrew Jordan is predicting a struggle during rounds 10, 11 and 12 of the 2014 British Touring Car Championship as he and the series heads to Oulton Park in Cheshire for the resumption of the season.

During the four week break since Thruxton, Jordan returned to his racing roots by taking part in the British round of the 2014 FIA World RallyCross Championship, where he secured a third place finish against 36 other competitors.

His title defence has seen him open up a slender eight point advantage over his nearest rival, Honda’s Gordon Shedden and the Pirtek Racing driver is predicting a difficult qualifying session around the 2.69 mile Oulton Park International circuit, due to its undulating nature and the fact he has 45kgs success ballast on board.

“If we qualify in the top six at Oulton I’ll be very surprised,” admits Jordan and he has his game plan formulated for such an eventuality.

“If that’s the case, we need to tackle it like we did at Donington and get through it with as many points as we can.”

Jordan has won a third of the races held to date in 2014 and this has helped him to open up a slender advantage, while 35 points cover Jordan at the top to Jason Plato, who arrives fifth in the Championship after a tough time at Thruxton.

“I love racing at Oulton but I think we’ll struggle a bit because we’ve got 45kg going into the weekend at the most weight-dependent circuit there is,” Jordan added. “I’ve got to keep my head down and do the best job I can and see where we get to. We have to be very savvy how we approach these weekends.”
