Andrew Jordan targeting fight towards the front after qualifying frustration

Andrew Jordan has his sights set on moving towards the front on race day at Knockhill after enduring a frustrating qualifying session.

A fast-paced wet-to-dry qualifying at the Fife circuit saw pole position swapping continuously in the final minutes, ultimately leaving Jordan 17th having originally sat as high as third.

Encountering on his final lap, having set a personal best in the first sector, the 28-year-old was forced to abort his lap and turn his immediate focus to picking his way through the grid over the course of tomorrow’s three encounters.

Reflecting on the session, Jordan said: “I just had traffic on my last lap. With ten minutes to go we were in P3, and then we made the call to go onto slicks. Pole was constantly swapping at the top end, but I got traffic on my last lap after setting my fastest sector one, it was just a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

“We did everything right, as we wanted to get out on the slicks and have them properly warmed them up for the end. We just got blocked by one of the VWs, and that was the lap done. I’m quite frustrated as we had the pace in that session, both in the wet and the dry, but I can’t control what others do.

“It’s going to be really tough starting from back where we are, but tomorrow’s a new day so we’ll try and break through and see if we can get into the top ten for the reversed grid in Race 3.”

The 2013 champions enters tomorrow’s triple-header sitting seventh in the overall standings, 69 points behind series leader Gordon Shedden.
