Tough season final for Jordan and Pirtek Racing

12/10/2015 | General

Pirtek Racing’s Andrew Jordan ended the season with fifth place overall in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship following the final three races on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit on Sunday (11 October).

Andrew was racing the works MG6 GT run by Triple Eight Racing in the final race weekend of the BTCC season and suffered a tough weekend at a track where he traditionally is among the very fastest. An eighth place finish in the last race was his best result to cap what Andrew describes as a character building season.

The problems began in free practice and qualifying on Saturday when a problem with the differential hampered progress. “No matter what we tried, we couldn’t get rid of the understeer,” said Andrew after qualifying down in 13th place. “There was something fundamentally wrong with the car, which was making it really unpredictable.”

With such a lowly grid position, Andrew and the team decided to start the first race from the pit lane in order to get clear track and the chance to set a quick lap time and earn a good grid position for the second race. “Unfortunately the car was still understeering and so the lap time wasn’t great,” he said. For the second race he started P11 and that was how it stayed in the race. “I was in a big pack and we still had understeer. I didn’t have a car to fight with and couldn’t make any forward progress,” he said.

Things improved a little in the third race when Andrew battled through to eighth place from eleventh on the grid, but it was a disappointing end to a difficult weekend. Despite the frustrations of Brands Hatch, Andrew still held on to fifth place in the final drivers’ points’ standings.
