Pirtek Racing reveals 2017 BTCC livery
Pirtek Racing has today revealed the stunning livery that will adorn the BMW 125i M Sport of Andrew Jordan for the 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season.
The unveiling of the West Surrey Racing-run BMW was one of the main draws on the opening day of the annual Autosport International Show at the NEC in Birmingham, with the car taking pride of place on the Dunlop BTCC stand.
The iconic Pirtek Racing colours will once again stand out from the crowd on track after the decision was taken to retain the stunning chrome appearance that proved to be universally popular last year as Andrew secured the Independents’ title for the third time.
Having shown off his news steed in front of a bumper crowd in Birmingham, Jordan will now continue to prepare for the next phase of his winter testing programme, which is due to get underway next month.
The 27-year-old has already enjoyed three successful days on track in the BMW prior to Christmas.
“I don’t think there is any doubt that the Pirtek Racing BMW will be the best looking car on the BTCC grid this season,” he said. “The chrome blue really stood out on track last year, but I think it looks even better on the 1 Series. The Pirtek Racing colours and the BMW are just a great fit; they complement each other perfectly.
“Since the testing we did prior to Christmas, the team has been hard at work on making improvements to what was already an extremely good car and I’m looking forward to getting back behind the wheel when we return to the track next month.
“We want to make sure that when we get to Brands Hatch for the season opener, we are challenging for pole position and race wins. If the Pirtek Racing BMW goes even half as well as it looks, then we’ll certainly be firmly in the mix at the front of the pack.”
Jordan’s 2017 campaign gets underway at Brands Hatch on the weekend of 1-2 April.
