Race 28 started well – although the heavens had opened and water stood in areas around the track, Jordan kept out of trouble and finished 5th with Jason Plato recording yet another race win.
Race 29 saw Jordan start on the third row with ballast removed and the rain increase in tempo. From the start of the race Jordan found himself in a tussle with a number of drivers and with heavy rain it seemed a dangerous place to be.
