Podiums All round for the Jordan brothers

It was certainly an exciting weekend for the Jordan brothers as both Andrew and Bradley took to the track at Anglesey for the Mini Miglia and Mini Se7en S-Class races, both getting the chance to step on the podium at the North Wales track.

Andrew had a tremendous start to the weekend with the sun shining onto the dry track. Starting from pole, Andrew had to contend with fellow former BTCC driver Jeff Smith and a charging Kane Astin who challenged the Revive! driver throughout the race. Andrew was in a fiercely defensive mood as he had to make his Mini Miglia three cars wide to prevent Astin from taking the lead. After the 20-minute race had elapsed Andrew Jordan took the victory for the first time this weekend making it three in a row after his Thruxton domination.

Sunday’s race couldn’t have been more different, rain drenched the track delaying the start of the race as part of the start finish straight was flooded. Jordan was still happy in pre-race interviews claiming he liked the wets, despite not having raced at Anglesey in the wet weather. Starting 4th on the grid Andrew made a cautious start falling down to fifth behind rival Kane Astin before retaking position and beginning his pursuit of the leading trio of Jeff Smith, Aaron Smith and Rupert Deeth. The wet weather caught Deeth by surprise as he slid wide losing a number of places and allowing Jordan to take 3rd place. Setting consistently fast lap times Jordan managed to catch Aaron Smith in 2nd and was fiercely battling with him at the halfway point of the race, taking second position at the chicane despite Aarons attempts to fight back. Despite building a lead over Aaron Smith, Andrew was unable to catch Jeff Smith taking 2nd place in the Race 2 of the Mini Miglia championship at Anglesey.

Taking 4th place on the grid for his own race in the Mini Se7en S-Class race, Bradley Jordan was lucky enough to take advantage of the drying track, managing to maintain his 4th position across the first quarter of the race. Going on to take 3rd from Callum Perfect, Jordan drove aggressively to take 2nd position from Arnold Duncan. Race leader Matthew Ayres had built up a sizable lead over the first half of the race with little competition from the other drivers and took the win, with Bradley coming a fantastic 2nd, the first podium of his career and certainly not going to be his last.

A tremendous congratulations to both Jordan brothers, we look forward to seeing the future historic victories they both achieve. As we go past the half-way point in the season our next stop is for rounds 11, 12 and 13 at Brands Hatch circuit on 3rd August.
