Jordan joins Team BMW for 2020 BTCC campaign

Wednesday, December 18 2019

Andrew Jordan has secured his place on next year's British Touring Car Championship grid with Team BMW alongside reigning champion Colin Turkington and Tom Oliphant.

The 2013 champion looked uncertain to contend next year's series after losing long-term sponsor Pirtek, however the move to Team BMW will see Jordan back with the familiar West Surrey Racing outfit for 2020.

The BMW 330i M Sport wheelman proved to be in top form this year despite a lap-one incident at Donington Park forcing him to miss three races due to injury. Claiming a total of six wins, Jordan finished the year in second place, narrowly missing out on the crown to team mate Turkington by just two points at this year's dramatic season finale at Brands Hatch.

Team BMW will be aiming to defend their Drivers' and Manufacturers' titles next year, with Jordan strengthening the outfits chances to replicate their success.

"I'm thrilled to be returning to the BTCC next season as a Team BMW driver," said Jordan. "I think it's a powerful statement for BMW to have three cars all looking the same on the grid. I remember watching Steve Soper and Jo Winkelhock in these colours, so for me to now represent them too is something I'm really proud of. It seems trivial, but it's going to feel really different putting on a white race suit - I'm excited and want to enjoy the whole experience.

Dick Bennetts, Team Principal, said: "I'm really pleased to be able to announce this news today. AJ is one of the finest BTCC drivers not just of the current crop, but of this whole generation, and he showed incredible determination and fighting spirit this year to turn what could have been a complete loss after the Donington incident into a final-round battle for the championship."

The 2020 British Touring Car Championship kicks off at Donington Park on 28-29 March and tickets are on sale now for all MSV rounds. Admission and camping prices are frozen at 2019 rates, click here to get yours.
