Jordan claims comfortable double
Andrew Jordan won his second race of the day at Thruxton after leading Round 8 of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship from start to finish.
The BMW Pirtek Racing man made a steady getaway from pole position and never really looked back, despite being kept honest by BMW stable-mate Colin Turkington throughout the 16 laps.
“I’m just trying to be a little bit careful at the moment,” confirmed Cammish. “I got pinged for track limits which saw me on a final warning and I didn’t want to fall foul of it. You can’t beat physics! I’m trying my best, I really am. The BMWs are so strong off the line but I’m really happy with third. This weekend’s been such an improvement on the first two this season.”
BTCC legends Jason Plato and Matt Neal would also get the better of the fading Tordoff late on as the multiple champions enjoyed a rare tussle on-track.
The AmD-run Hondas of Tordoff and Rory Butcher were covered by just 0.369s at the chequered flag, whilst the Team Toyota GB with Ginsters Corolla of Tom Ingram came home eighth.
Rob Collard made it two Vauxhalls in the top ten, whilst BTC Racing Josh Cook edged out good friend Ash Sutton to take tenth. Adrian Flux Subaru Racing’s Sutton was rewarded, however, when former McLaren Team Principal Martin Whitmarsh picked #11 in the reverse grid draw meaning the 2017 champion will start today’s final race from pole position.
