Motorbase Performance boss David Bartrum is excited about his Kent-based British Touring Car Championship outfits participation in next weekends high-profile Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Over 200,000 fans are set to descend on Sussex for the annual celebration of motorsport, with Motorbase set to join a marque of leading BTCC teams including Honda, Subaru, MG, BMW and established independent outfit WIX Racing.
Jordan will take part in an epic time-attack shootout on the 1.16 mile circuit against defending champion Gordon Shedden, three-time series winner Matt Neal (both Honda), current standings leader Sam Tordoff (BMW), double champion Jason Plato (Subaru) and the newest addition to the BTCC winners circle, Ashley Sutton (MG).
With the six barely separable on circuit across the fifteen contests so far this season, of which there have been an astonishing ten different victors, spectators are set to watch one of the closest battles of the weekend, if not the quickest.
Looking ahead to the festival, Bartrum underlined his pride at Motorbase featuring on the bill and believes Jordan is set to shine up the famous hill.
“Goodwood Festival of Speed is arguably the biggest motorsport event in the world and we’re delighted to be able to participate in such an iconic event.”
“I’m sure that Andrew will do a great job in the Focus. It’s a great achievement for him to be invited and a superb opportunity for us to be able to take Motorbase, our partners and the BTCC to an even bigger audience. It’s going to be a highlight of the season!”
Jordan, the 2013 champion and race-winner this year at Thruxton, also considered it an honour to be invited, but doesn’t expect to break any lap records at the weekend.
“It is a huge honour to be asked to take part in this event. I don’t think the pace of the Focus up the hill will trouble the times of the Formula 1 cars, but it is a fantastic opportunity for me and my sponsors.”
