Andrew Jordan Thrashes the competition at Thruxton

It was another thrilling weekend of racing in the Dunlop Mini Miglia Challenge, held this weekend at the fast-flowing Thruxton Circuit. Revive! sponsored driver Andrew Jordan finally got behind the wheel of his Mini Miglia car for the first time this season with spectacular results. This weekend also saw Andrew’s father and brother behind the wheel of their own magnificent Minis in the Mini Se7en Challenge and Mini 7 S-class respectively.

Following a fantastic race victory on the Saturday, Mike Jordan (Andrew’s father) lined up 7th on the grid for race two due to the qualifying times taking the fastest race lap from the previous day. As Mike was leading the race he had reduced pace due to a lack of slipstream availability, leading to his less-than-ideal starting position for Sundays race. Bradley Jordan started from 13th on the grid alongside rival racer Chris Prior in the Mini 7 S-Class series hoping to make up ground on his competition as the race progressed.

Mike didn’t let his starting position hold him back during the race, the 66-year-old racing veteran made an incredible move going into the final chicane on the first lap, overtaking five cars in one corner and taking the lead of the race. The Revive! liveried Mini took no prisoners as it romped on to a fantastic victory. After losing a number of places during the first few laps, Bradley came back to an impressive 12th in class, coming out on top after a fantastic battle with Chris Prior to close the race.

Andrew Jordan started his second race at Thruxton of the weekend in 13th position on the grid for the Dunlop Mini Miglia Challenge, with a lot of ground to make up during the 20-minute race. Seemingly taking lessons from his father, Andrew made his way up the placings before taking the final 4 cars coming into the last chicane to take the lead on the first lap. After a fierce battle for the lead across the first few laps Andrew managed to regain the lead from Andrew Smith just prior to the red flag coming out due to an accident on the pit straight.

After a long stoppage, the race was restarted behind the safety car with only eight minutes to go. Andrew made an impressive restart pulling away from the rest of the pack with Aaron Smith sticking with him as the pair pulled away. Andrew took the victory of the shortened race just managing to keep the hard charging Aaron Smith behind him.

This was a fantastic Thruxton weekend that featured on ITV throughout the weekend as part of the BTCC coverage. The Jordan Race Team took an impressive quadruple victory throughout the classes. Revive! also had a number of staff there on the day to support the Jordan family who thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. We are all very excited to see Andrew race again at Anglesey on 6th July.
