Revive! sponsored Andrew Jordan has his sights firmly fixed on success in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship after officially confirming his place on the grid for the 2018 season.
Andrew will remain with the championship winning West Surrey Racing team for a second successive season, and also retains backing from BMW UK for the new campaign in a move that will see him continue to race under the BMW Pirtek Racing banner.
Despite the fact that 2017 was his first season competing in a rear-wheel drive touring car, Andrew enjoyed a successful year on track, with three wins over the course of the campaign in his BMW 125i M Sport.
With valuable knowledge of the car now under his belt, and a strong working relationship with the team, Andrew has his sights firmly fixed on overall honours in 2018 as he seeks to try and secure the BTCC title for a second time.
“I’m very excited about the season ahead and I feel confident that 2018 can be a good year for BMW Pirtek Racing” he said. “For me, the continuity of running with the same team and in the same car is something that cannot be underestimated, and I’m looking forward to getting our testing programme underway so we can start preparing for Brands Hatch.
“The key difference to twelve months ago is that I have a lot more knowledge of the BMW, and it means that I go into our pre-season programme focused on developing the car for what is to come, rather than needing to learn how to get the best out of it.
“I feel in a really good place, and I’m looking to fight for wins from the outset to launch a bid for the championship. We showed last year that we had the speed, and now we just need a bit more luck and a bit more consistency than we had in 2017.
“I’m also extremely proud that I will be racing with the support of BMW UK again this season. On a personal level, it is fantastic to be working so closely with a major manufacturer, whilst the additional benefits that come from being manufacturer backed are also a reward for the sponsors who continue to support me.”
Andrew’s new look Pirtek BMW Racing BMW 125i M Sport will be revealed ahead of the opening rounds of the new season, which take place at Brands Hatch on the weekend of 7/8 April.
