scored his first

Kwik Fit British

Touring Car Championship

double success in

more than five years as

the BMW Pirtek Racing

driver dominated early

proceedings at Thruxton,

before BTC Racing’s Josh

Cook won the final race in

Hampshire.

Jordan impressively

bounced back from a

dismal Donington Park

last time out, which saw

his car heavily damaged in

a multi-car accident. The

29-year-old was forced to

sit on the sidelines as his

BMW stable-mate Colin

Turkington took two wins

at the Leicestershire circuit,

but this was Jordan’s

time to shine at the UK’s

fastest track.

The Midlander eventually

got the better of pole-sitter

Sam Tordoff in the opener

after initially blasting his

new BMW 3 Series off

the line and into second,

getting by Halfords Yuasa

Racing’s Dan Cammish.

The front-runners held station

for almost the entire

race until Tordoff ’s AmDrun

Civic wiggled slightly

through Church on lap

13 of 16. Jordan eyed his

chance and comfortably

slipped by, although it later

transpired that Tordoff ’s

car was suffering from

power steering problems.

Jordan eased away in the

closing laps to claim his

second win of the season,

ahead of Tordoff and

Cammish.

He won his second race of

the day after leading from

start to finish.

The 2013 champion made

a strong getaway from pole

position and never really

looked back, despite being

kept honest by Turkington

in the sister 330i M Sport

over the 16-lap encounter.

Cammish completed the

podium for the second

successive time.
