Andrew Jordan ‘fit and ready’ for Knockhill

Andrew Jordan is fit and ready to get his British Touring Car Championship title defence back underway at Knockhill after his disaster of a weekend last time out at Snetterton.

Having been in the tyre wall at Riches during the opening free practice session at Snetterton, Jordan found himself at the back of the grid for the first race having been ruled out of qualifying on medical grounds.

His weekend score of a single Championship point was his worst score since 2010 and saw him drop 78 points behind Championship leader Colin Turkington, with Gordon Shedden and Jason Plato also ahead of him.

While Jordan has had a few days to rest between Snetterton and Knockhill, the team have got the #1 Pirtek Racing Honda Civic rebuild ahead of the trip to Scotland.

Jordan has admitted that his focus for the remaining 12 races has changed and that is he going for race victories and not the solid, picking up the points approach of the 2013 campaign.

“I’m fit and raring to go for Knockhill,” explained Jordan. “We’ll have a different approach to the weekend: for the last 18 months the target has always been consistency and championship points, but now I can just go all out for race wins. It will be a case of going as fast as I can and trying to win races. I’m relishing the prospect of being let off the leash!”

With Jordan being fourth in the Championship, he will carry 18kgs of success ballast into qualifying on Saturday, 23rd August and the first of three races on Sunday, 24th August.

Jordan will also start his 200th BTCC race in the third race at Knockhill, whilst race two will mark his 200th entry in the series.
