Andrew Jordan’s motorsport career began in 2003 in Britain’s Junior Rallycross Championship. He went on to win the winter series in his maiden campaign and was crowned BTRDA Junior Rallycross Champion the following year. Further success in the discipline followed until he made the switch to the BTCC in 2008. That season, he drove a Eurotech/John Guest Racing Honda Integra and placed 13th overall with two podiums. In 2009, Jordan made history at Donington Park behind the wheel of his VX Racing Vauxhall Vectra, becoming the youngest driver ever to score a BTCC pole position.
‘AJ’ matured as part of the family-run Pirtek Racing squad into one of the fastest and most consistent touring car drivers around, winning the Independents’ title in 2012 before going one better over the course of a stunning 2013 campaign to clinch the outright BTCC Drivers’ crown.
Jordan’s championship defence in 2014 hit the rails after a mid-season shunt at Snetterton, and he eventually finished fifth. He switched to MG in 2015 and tallied five podiums to conclude proceedings in fifth once again.
For 2016, Jordan took the Pirtek brand to Motorbase as he looked to add another title to his résumé in a Ford Focus ST. He duly produced the goods with a third Independent Drivers’ Championship and two race wins.
He made the move to West Surrey Racing in 2017, bringing Pirtek backing across with him once again, to rear-wheel drive BMW machinery at BMW Pirtek Racing. Jordan scored three victories – at Brands Hatch, Oulton Park and Rockingham – and finished the season ninth in the standings. He returned for a second campaign as part of the same team in 2018, ending the year fifth in the classification with a race win notched at Knockhill.
BMW and WSR entered a trio of new 3 Series’ in 2019, and once more, Jordan represented the blue corner at BMW Pirtek Racing – his long-time partner extending its support. Achieving more victories than any other driver that season, he finished as runner-up to BMW stablemate Colin Turkington after battling closely for honours throughout.
Jordan makes the transition to a factory-backed Team BMW seat for the 2020 campaign.
