Jordan Aiming for third consecutive Brands Hatch pole
2013 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Champion Andrew Jordan is aiming for his third consecutive pole position at the opening event of the season this weekend at Brands Hatch. Having made the switch to manufacturer MG machinery this season with Triple Eight Racing, the 25-year-old will be hoping to repeat his past successes that were achieved behind the wheel of a Honda Civic.
“I’m so focused to do that,” explains the former champ. “To get pole three years on the trot at the first race will be fantastic, and to do it this year with a new team and new car, that’s really my aim. It’s all about who doesn’t get traffic and who strings their lap together the best, which I’ve managed to do in the last few years. It will be close, that’s for sure.”
As well as qualifying pace, Jordan has also been a pace-setter in race trim at the tight action-packed Kent venue.
“I’m more experienced than when I initially drove for Triple Eight and I’m driving a lot better too,” continued the #77 driver. “I’ve got a title now, so that monkey is off my back, and this is the first year I can focus solely on being a racing driver. The MG is a very good car and we’ve got a great team here; I want to lead the team forward and go for the title again.”
